Scrap 'N Stamp Colours of Fall Inspiration Hop

Hi friends and Happy Friday. I'm back again hopping with Scrap N' Stamp Canada on Instagram for the Colours of Fall Inspiration Hop! 

Please comment on my Instagram @traceymcneely for your chance to win a $50 gift certificate for the Scrap 'n Stamp Canada store.

Do you have a time of the summer when you know that summer is coming to an end? For me it has always been when the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) opens in Toronto. This year with everything going on it completely took me by surprise but it happened followed by September 1st and now the air is cleaner and crisper and I have even seen a few of the trees starting to take on the colours of fall!

I used Catherine Pooler Fall Calls for Latte stamps and dies for both of my cards. For my first card I created my own patterned paper using the leaf images from the set in autumn colours. Then I stamped and black heat embossed some of the coffee cups and then carefully coloured them with my Copic markers. You would think after all these years that I would have enough markers but I think I need to get a few more to match these newest ink colours-lol!

For the second card I made my own cardstock using 5 Catherine Pooler inks and once they were dry I stamped and die cut the three leaves with the same colour ink to create a tone on tone image. I made a pile of leaves on the card panel that I cut from Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Stackables and rather than trying to glue each leaf separately I picked them all up with some Stretch and Seal, turned them over, applied glue to the backs of the leaf pile and then turned it back over and placed on my panel. No shifting at all! 

I finished off by flicking some yellow gold Kuretake Gansai Tambi Starry Colors watercolour on the card front. Any type of watercolour splatter would work like the new Kuretake Gansai Tambi Opal! I can't wait to get this set to try it out!

Don't forget you need to comment on my Instagram @traceymcneely for your chance to win!

I'm not ready to let go of summer just yet, but I do love September! You fall themed cards are terrific! The leaf print cups are adorable!
