Hello! Popping in with a couple of cards today. I got my Spellbinders Glimmer club kit for October the other day and I could not wait to fire up my Glimmer machine and create a card! I hadn't used my September Glimmer club kit yet so I combine the two along with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
I also did some embossing with this card. I normally leave my background panel plain, but I decided to pull out the Spellbinders Falling Leaves embossing folder to jazz up my background. I foiled all the images twice using Polished Brass foil, die cut with the matching dies and colored with Copic markers. I should have colored everything before I did the diecutting, but it turned out in the end. The sentiment and banner are from the September Glimmer club kit and I used kraft cardstock for the foiling. I like how it turned out. I assembled the banner and then adhered everything to the embossed panel. I finished with tons of sparkly red gems from the Spellbinder Color Mix Red essentials gem pack.
The second card is for Color Throwdown. During Simon Says Stamp's Stamptember celebration I was able to pick up the SSS/Concord & 9th collaborative stamp and die set called Double the Thanks. I really liked the uniqueness of the stamp set. I stamped the two part thank you in dark brown and kraft, die cut it and adhered it to a white cardstock base. I then tried to find an ink that I might have that was more on the green side of turquoise to stamp the sentiment and the leaves, but couldn't quite come up with one. Oh well... that happens sometimes, right? I added those to my card and it was done.
