I have two cards for you this month featuring four of the new September releases paired with two previously released sets. 

My first card features the adorable Christmas Gnomes, a fun Christmas Text Background and the versatile Holiday Greetings along with some elements from Happy Camper


 

I stamped the cute gnome and other images on white cardstock with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. I colored the images with Shuttle Art markers and fussy cut out. I stamped the sentiment in real red ink  and backed with a scrap of the same color cardstock. Next, I stamped the Christmas Text background with VersaMark ink on a die cut piece of cucumber crush cardstock (Gina Marie Design dies). I assembled the card as seen adding a couple of green sequins to finish it off. The gnomes in this set are so cute!

 




 

For my second card, I paired a sentiment from the amazing Best Gift Ever with the gorgeous True Beauty set. 

 


This card went together pretty quick with simple coloring and the use of dies. I started by embossing the roses and leaves in white onto Canson mixed media paper. I colored the roses and leaves with watercolor brush markers (red/Arteza and moss/Altenew) and set aside to dry. Once they were dry, I went carefully over the top with Wink of Stella to add some sparkle, let dry and hand trimmed out. I die cut the background and sentiment panels (Gina Marie Design dies) from white cardstock and stamped the sentiment with black ink. I assembled the card, popping the sentiment panel and some image edges up with foam tape. I decided between the sparkle and background texture this card needed no other embellishments. Clean and simple for the win!

 



 
Thanks for stopping by and your next stop on the hop is the amazing Lee Ann Barrett!

 
 
Have a fantastic day,
