This sentiment is from the new Hey Pumpkin stamp set. The paper and leaves are pieced from the Authentique Thankful collection. I colored this adorable bear with Prisma color pencils and gamsol then accented him with a white gel pen. The card is distressed with vintage photo distress ink.

Hi Everyone! 
 Today I am sharing two cards featuring Miss Kate Cuttables SVGs.
 For my cards, I used the "Autumn Tree" file. Fall is quickly approaching and for some of us, its already here! I love having thinking of you cards on hand and one I made for a special friend.

 
I made a distressed background with vintage photo, spiced marmalade and mowed lawn then added some water droplets and some Gold Color shine mist from Heidi Swapp. Then I cut the "Autumn Tree" file from Miss Kate Cuttables. I stamped the little girls from "In My Heart" by Mama Elephant, then colored with colored pencils and paper pieced her with the Authentique Thankful collection. I then added some orange embroidery floss to her hair and some buttercup liquid pearls to her shoes and dress.


I distressed all the layers of my 5x5 card with vintage photo distress ink.
My sentiments are from So Happy by Verve stamps and In My Heart by Mama Elephant.

Hi! Okay this is my last card for today!!
I love the look of the outline floral stamps but I don't purchase a lot because I never know what to do with them. So when I saw this technique Donna Mikasa shared on this day I knew I had to try it out.
I love the way it turned out!

Hi Again Everyone!!
As I said before I am playing catch up!! :)
Here is my card for Day 5.
I just love all the inspiration Jennifer McGuire always shares. This day was pretty tough for me because I don't use a lot of floral outline stamps or embossing powders outside of the clear and white.
I tried out her Multi-colored Embossing technique using Floral outline stamps.
