Designed2Delight New Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Designed2Delight monthly blog hop for September. Faith has released six new fall and winter images this month, really great new images. They all are so gorgeous, it was hard to chose which to use. So I went with one fall card and one winter one.

My first card uses Autumn Flower Jar. The image is colored with copics, paired up with PTI card stock, DCWV patterned papers and finished with some stitching, seambinding, stick pins and pearls. My sketch comes from Tuesday Morning Sketches #164, I love the CAS layout of this one.




Card two used the Moonlight Snowman image. I've sponged around him to add a night sky. I think this little guy is just too cute. He is colored with copics, and has stickles on his trim and the snow and some glossy effects on his carrot nose. He is paired up with some SU card stock and prints from the Echo Park Winter Park paper pad. I finished him off with some SU ribbon, Nestabilities snowflake die cuts and a PTI button and Twiney Twine. The sketch I used comes from Merry Monday Challenge #33. Love the simplicity of this one, too.


Thanks so much for blog hoppin' with D2D! Remember, all New Release Digital Stamps will be on SALE until Sept 23. Details HERE.

What pretty cards! I love your coloring on the fall card, and the pins are a fab addition. The snowman card is just adorable, and the little star embellie you made is fantastic--I might have to case that one! Thanks so much for joining us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches.
