Autumn Thanks Card Set

Today we're showcasing again some of the new stamps and dies
released by  Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps during September! 
Here's a set of four "thank you" cards created with the fabulous
Leaf Silhouettes stamp set and Leaf Silhouette Dies. 
 The sentiments are from the very useful So Grateful - love how
easy it is to mix and match the words to say thank you in different ways.

I used ink to watercolor the backgrounds, leaving an unpainted area so
the popped up leaves would stand out in contrast.  This involves brushing
 the whole rectangular area with water before brushing in the ink loosely
 in the bottom left two thirds.  As the ink/paint spreads you can add in a
bit more here and there for more depth of color.
After stamping the sentiments in Color Box Black 
Licorice ink, I added a few matching sequins to finish.
Here is a closer look at each card with ink colors.

Ranger Distress Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed.

Stampin Up Lucky Limeade and Ranger Distress Peeled Paint.

 Stampin Up Rich Razzleberry.

Ranger Distress Broken China, Peacock Feathers and Pine Needles.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you'll take a look at the pretty creations some of 
the Design Team have come up with using new September release
stamps and dies!  If you've made any creations using the new sets,
we'd love to see them, please add the using the linky tool below which closes
September 25, 2014.
