The Craft's Meow September Release Preview Day 2: Speaking of Fall

The Craft's Meow

Welcome to our 2nd day of previews of our newest stamps being released this month at The Craft's Meow!  Today we're showing you a wonderful set by Angelica that she calls Speaking of Fall.  This set will be our free gift with purchase for this month.   I love everything in this set, and I know I'll be using it often.  The sentiment on my card says it all:

TCM Sept 18 Speaking of Fall

I made a mask with a circle cut out in the center, and then stamped the solid leaves in lots of fall colors, and then the outline leaves in brown ink.  After removing my mask, I stamped the sentiment.  Couldn't be easier, and I love the result!

ETA: I'm entering this card into the Moxie Fab World's Handmade Cards Week Color Media Challenge, because of the variety of colored inks I used.  

Would you like to win this stamp set?  Just leave a comment at The Craft's Meow Blog before 8:00 PM PDT this evening, and Lisa will draw a random name as her winner and announce that name tomorrow when our next stamps are revealed.  

I hope you'll come and visit me tomorrow - we're showing off TWO new sets!

  1. I'm so glad you love the set, Lin! I adore the use of the circle to mask the leaf pile. My mom and I both looked at it and said, "HOW COOL!" Love that it's a one layer card. Beautiful job!

  7. Great fall card; gives me an idea on using a leaf die to do the same thing. Thanks for the chance to win a great fall stamp set.
