Well this was a no brainer when I got the invitation from Shery and just look at the wonderful stamps she sent through for me to use. So a huge thanks goes from me to Shery and STAMPlorations!
Here's what I created using them:
Although this is not my usual style I just couldn't resist making a pop up box with the scarecrow, leaves and pumpkins. So much fun colouring and putting this together!
Stamps: STAMPlorations, Wonderfall Time, Typografia Thankful
Ink: Mememnto, rich cocoa
Pens: Copic, R20, R22, R24, R29, E000, Y13, Y18, E55, E59, YG13, YG17
After all that fussy cutting and layering I went straight back to my preferred and AAA Cards required CAS style. This card has loads of empty 'white' space!
I love the colours that I blended together on the masked off strip - pinch me I'm saying I love orange! And I so enjoyed colouring the pair of pumpkins and tried hard to achieve an orange glow even though I don't have any orange pens - pen blending was needed!
Stamps: STAMPlorations, Wonderfall Time
Inks: Memento, rich cocoa; Ranger distress, spiced marmalade, mustard seed
Pens: Copic, Y13, R22, R24, E55, E57
My final card is a sort of half way house between the first two creations - a little more in the way of layers, but still enough empty 'white' space to call it CAS.
I started by using a homemade stencil to ink up that circular frame for the scarecrow - had to use him again as he's so cute. Then I added a couple of wonky strips of coloured cardstock to ground him. The pumpkins were then added to the front layer using pads for added dimension.
Stamps: STAMPlorations, Wonderfall Time
Inks: Mememnto, rich cocoa; SU, pumpkin pie, soft sky
Pens: Copic, R20, R22, R24, R29, Y13, Y18, G99, E57, YG13, YG17
