For my first card, I have created a video tutorial for you on copic coloring the Anemones stamp set and also stamping with Distress Oxides on an ink blended background. You can view the video down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.
The sentiment on this card is from the Humming Bird Thanks stamp set. The font is so gorgeous!
To accent my card, I added the Marigold Jewels which are absolutely gorgeous!
Here is the complete line up for the Blog Hop Day 2.

But wait! There’s more!
For my second card, I stamped and colored these adorable critters from the Pumpkin Patch Critters stamp set. I also added the mushrooms and tree stump from the Woodland Critters stamp set to create a woodland scene. Then die cut them using the coordinating dies and added them to my ink blended background. I used Ripe Persimmon and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide on Bristol Smooth cardstock. For some added interest, I mixed water with Perfect Pearls Perfect Bronze powder and flicked onto the ink blended background with a paintbrush.
I die cut the beautiful Thankful script die two times from white cardstock and the top layer from Gold Glitter cardstock. I layered my die cut pieces using tweezers and Gina K Connect glue.
My critters in the foremost front of the card are popped up with foam squares for dimension.

My final inspiration for you in the beautiful Autumn Wreath stamp and die set. I stamped the image onto Neenah Solar White cardstock with copic friendly ink. Then colored with copic markers and die cut the wreath with the coordinating die.
I ink blended a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock with Ripe Persimmon and Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink for a soft Autumn feel.
Next, I used the wreath die on a piece of Woodgrain cardstock to create a window. The woodgrain panel is added to the ink blended panel. I then used white cardstock to die cut the wreath shape three times to layer my wreath. Before I attach my layered wreath I’m going to stamp the sentiment in the center using Versafine Ink.
I added to a white A2 size panel and tied some Lawn Trimmings around the bottom of the card. Doubling up the Lawn Trimmings, I tied a knot on the front and then using tweezers, I pried apart the Lawn Trimmings for the frayed look. The back will hidden once it is attached to a notecard.
This project wouldn’t be complete without adding some of the new gorgeous jewels around the wreath. I used Marigold, Raspberry and Espresso Jewels.
I really hope you enjoyed all of the inspiration on my blog today. Don’t forget to hop along for chances to win!
