Autumn Style...

Hey there crafty friends!  I have a fun post today....Group Post #1 for the August PTI Release.   The sets and dies that we are showcasing today may be in my list of new favorites. They are so fun and so very versatile!

To start us off, I have a card using the new die called Branching Out and the new stamp set called Brushed Off.

To make this card, I inked up one of the Brushed Off images in rainbow order.  Each time, instead of blotting the ink pad, I "swiped" the ink pad across the stamp to give it a brushed look.  These images are so much fun!  I can't wait for you to see the whole set.  I added in Keep it Simple: Thinking of You in black, along with a strip of True Black card stock.  I added in the Branching Out die in vellum over the top....

Another new die called Leaf Silhouettes will be available in this August release.  I LOVE this die.

First, I took a Fresh Linen card base and added in a sentiment from Twig Wreath.  I cut the leaf in white card stock first and then stamped one of the Brushed Off image onto the leaf.  I cut the outline of the leaf in Gold Foil Adhesive paper to give it a little shine.  And that is it!  Super Simple!

  13. The vellum leaves add the perfect soft touch for the soft brush off strokes of color. The sentiment on the second card perfectly matches the pretty leaf.

  18. Your single gold-foiled leaf is gorgeous. It doesn't need anything else done to it. Perfection plus!! The vellum leaves on your brush strokes add just the right touch to that card, too.
