Here is the beautiful Fresh Cut Sunflowers Stamp Set from The Ton Stamps. They are one of my favorite companies for layering stamps! I used carious Stampin’ Up inks for the colors of my sunflowers and leaves. I used my Broken China Oxide Ink, my new obsession, to create the subtle blue background.
I also created an envelope with different measurements than what is on the envelope punch board. To create an A2 size envelope, you want to cut your paper to 8″ x 8″ and score at 3 1/2″. You will get a perfect envelop to fit your A2 card perfectly!

Hello you guys! Welcome to day 8 in my fall card series. We are nearing the end and even though I previously did a card with a scarecrow, I could not pass up using adorable Lawn Fawn stamp set. Instead of using my go to with my Zig markers or Distress Inks, I busted out some Prismacolors I just recently purchased. They happened to be on a pile of junk at Wal-Mart in the craft section with a big yellow sticker marking them at $10.00 for a 24 count. I couldn’t pass them up as I have been eyeing them for a while.
I colored all my images with the Prismacolors and blended using Gamsol Mineral Spirits. I am in love!! The pencils are already so creamy and blending with the Gamsol was so easy and smooth. I definitely like this alternative when I don’t want to use watercolors or my Zig Markers. One day I will get Copics, but until then these are the next best thing in my opinion and much more cost effective!

I was so excited to bust out this stamp set. Fall is my favorite time of year and nothing says fall like scarecrows and pumpkins! This is a great stamp set from My Favorite Things called Fall Friends.
To create the watercolor look I used Distress Inks which are my go to for anything watercolor. The inks are so versatile!! I did some sloppy water coloring which is becoming my new obsession. It is so freeing and seems to always turn out a lot better than if I was careful and stayed in the lines.

The fence die is actually a Halloween fence die from MFT. I think it works great on this card! I love the fact that is is a little wonky and crooked in some places.
Love the shine the embossing powder gives to the images adding a little character.
I rarely do the inside of my cards, but really would like to start adding that extra touch. I had an extra sunflower that I adhered in the corner of the inside of the card.
