SEPTEMBER 2019 RELEASE BLOG HOP

Hallo Everyone! Happy Monday to you and welcome to our September Release Blog Hop! I am so excited to share our NEW RELEASE with you and all the inspirations created by our Designers.


We have six new stamp sets in this Release and I can't wait for you to HOP along to see what the Designers have created but first, here's a look at the new release and what I have created with them

First up, we have All Hallow's Cuteness



It features, *you guessed it!* cute little critters in Halloween costumes and it was easy to create this interactive card with the witchy kitty and its birdie friend.

Sample card with All Hallow's Cuteness - park your broom and sit for a spell
I watercolored the background to create a night sky and added splashes of white gouache for stars. Then, I used colored pencils to add depth and highlights to the images I painted as well and fussy-cut them all to assemble this card.

Next up, we have It's Boo-tastic!


It's Boo-tastic! coordinates superbly with All Hallows Cuteness and between the two sets, you will be able to create a multitude of scenes!

Sample card for It's Boo-tastic - Boo!
For this card, I just eyeballed and freehand cut the hills that the pumpkins and kitty Dracula is standing on. Since one of my favorite medium is watercoloring, you can see that I once again painted and then used colored pencils to add dimension. I like how colored pencils add 'live' to the painted images. I fussy cut the pumpkins, little ghostie and bats and adhered them with dotliners and foam tape.

Then we are moving on to our Christmas stamps. All is Calm features a large stamp with matching sentiments.


Sample card - All Is Calm - Merry Christmas from Our Home to Yours
I had a fun time coloring this image with the no-line coloring technique. I stamped the image with a light colored ink (I used Papertrey Ink's Harvest Gold this time) and watercolored the image before adding colored pencils to create this effect. I also used a brown pen to dot the eyes and drew the little mouth on the bear hiding behind the tree and mountain of presents!

Fun in the Snow features penguins and bears having fun skiing.


Sample card - Fun in the snow - wishing you much joy this holiday season
I decided to create an interactive card with the images from this set as well. Because I have not invested in interactive dies yet (my bad!), I had to handcut all the elements to put this card together. It was not the easiest thing to do, but it's do-able and thankfully, I was only making one card! I love how the penguin and the bear moves in opposite direction... they are so fun to slide around

Warm Winter Wishes is another fun set to illustrate and I can imagine a lot of fun card with this set too but let me just share one and let my Designers wow you with theirs when you HOP along.


Sample card - Warm winter wishes
For this CAS card, I watercolored the background and used colored pencils to draw the trees. Then I just painted and highlighted the images using colored pencils. No fussy-cutting with this card. Just a lot of fun painting and that's it!

And our last stamp set for this release is Good Tidings to You.


Sample card - Good tidings to you - seasons greetings
Another super fun card to make! I used distress inks to create a soft background and stamped the snowflakes onto it with a silver ink pad. Then I watercolored the stamped images and added colored pencils detailing again (do you see a pattern here? haha). Finally I added some shadows for the kitty and its mice friends with some grey colored pencil.
