Hello and welcome back to the final day of our October 2017 Release! We are so excited to debut 11 new stamps and 10 coordinating dies for this release. If you’re joining us for the first time today, please note that we are doing things a bit differently for this release.  Our team has not made any cards for our Release Weekend as their stamps are on their way to them as we speak.  However, you will see their gorgeous creations at the end of the month where we will have a fun blog hop with prizes! For today, I have made several cards showcasing our Day 3 sets. We also have a giveaway so make sure to scroll down to see all the details.

For my first card, I white heat embossed our new Thankful Chrysanthemum set. Then I added vibrant watercolors to color the image (Fuchsia, Lime Green and Gamboge Color Bursts). After I finished painting, I die cut my panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangle dies (small) set. Then I made my own glitter cardstock using our Red Glitter Adhesive paperRed Glitter Adhesive paper.  Next I mounted my painted panel onto my glitter base. Lastly, I added Clear Dew Drops to embellish my card. chrys red glitter 2

For my next card, I used our Celebration Rose Cluster and Daffodil Greetings sets.

I started off by rose gold heat embossing our Celebration Rose Cluster in the corner of my A2 sized watercolor panel (Canson XL 140lb watercolor paper). Then I masked the rose cluster and partially heat embossed our Daffodil Greetings next to my rose cluster. This is a great way to stretch your floral cluster stamps – add additional florals to create a different/larger floral cluster!

After I heat embossed my customized cluster, I painted them with color bursts. Instead of blending out my first layer of color, I applied a very concentrated amount of paint and added shading to the petals using a second hue. For my roses, I used Alizarin Crimson and Merlot color bursts. For my daffodils, I used Gamboge and Tangerine. For my leaves, I used Lime Green and Terre Vert. For my background, I used Turquoise bursts. After I finished painting, I added stitching to the edges of the panel using our Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (large) set. Next I popped up my white embossed sentiment banner and embellished my card with clear rhinestones.

For my last project, I merely stamped Rose Close Up and did some no line coloring.

To color, I started off with a first layer of a light copic marker. Then I added more color and depth using 4 color pencils (Faber Castell Polychromos). After I finished coloring this piece, I didn’t have the heart to cut it up to turn it into a finished card (it took me more than an hour to just color this piece). I will likely frame this later on.  However, I still wanted to showcase this piece for today.

I apologize for the lack of cards today! I am hoping that quality of my work compensates for the quantity (or lack thereof) for today.

    Your cards are stunning. That Rose Close Up is beautiful. And all that glorious coloring on your 2nd card is making me speechless! Breathtaking.
    My favorite stamp today is the Celebration Rose Cluster. But my overall favorite stamp of the release is the Tulip Bouquet. Although Autumn Wishes is pretty as well. 🙂


  2. Marianne says:

    The Rose Close-up looks amazing, but I love your colouring of all of the new sets. Your chysanthemums turned out so pretty and I love the velvety look of your dark red roses.


  3. inkifyngers says:

    Stunning stamps as usual Effie, don’t make me choose a favourite! I love the Thankful Chrysanthemum (the colouring is also amazing) and I love the close up Rose and the bunch of roses too. Too hard to choose just one! xxx


  4. marylouh says:

    Chrysanthemum’s are my favorite flower.
    When cut they last so much longer than
    other flowers.
    That stamp would be my favorite – I
    could really have flowers all year long.
    thanks for the offer of a gift.


  5. cmayne says:

    Yet another array of gorgeous happening today! I’m especially taken with the Thankful Chrysanthemum; they remind me of my grandmother, who had the greenest thumb imaginable when it came to flower and vegetable gardens. Her Chrysanthemums were incredible; people walking past her yard would stop and gaze in breath-taken-away wonder. Thank you for sparking wonderful memories!


  6. Trina P. says:

    Three amazing days of new release products and cards. You are so talented, Effie.
    I love the roses stamps, especially the close uprise. In fact, I love all your close up stamps except that they are cling rubber. Due to space issues, I’ve stopped buying rubber stamps. 😔 Do you think you will offer the close up series of stamps in clear?


  7. Emily White says:

    I love all the roses!!!! I am blown away by their beauty!! I love the rose cluster and the close up rose!!! I can’t choose just one! I need all of the roses!! Lol

    THE roses sure are very beautiful, but for me the winner of today’s post is hands down the chrysanthemum set – I love the design of these! I might be biased though as I really like chrysanthemums in real life! 🙂
