Release Day and a Whole Lot More!

Today is a special day and SO much to chat about! First off Cornish is introducing it's own blog! You can see the details with all the releases and special highlights of the projects and designs created by the Cornish Team! HERE is the link to that new blog...you will also find the link in my sidebar with the Cornish Team.
*****You want to pop over there because Cornish is giving away some goodies!******
Saturday Evening Post has THREE releases today! Woohoo! I wanted to show you my creations from all three new releases. This first one is AWESOME for masculine cards. There is no coloring in this one, just simply stamping over patterned paper and then I stitched as crooked as I could and added some buttons from a very old sewing stash.
Here are this card's deets:
Stamps:
Bird Watching (SEP) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Classic Expressions (MLM) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Ink:
Espresso Adirondack Dye Ink (Ranger)
Versamark (Tsukineko)
Paper:
Scrapblocks Patterned Paper, Thomas Kinkade Masculine Series Patterned Paper (Cornish Heritage Farms)
Accessories:
Vanilla Embossing Powder
Buttons (From my sewing stash)
Hardware (Creative Impressions)
Sewing Machine
Edge Distressor (Making Memories)

Now, I showed you a peek of this one yesterday. Today I am showing you how I used just a part of that fabulous image. I used my nestabilities to emboss my white card stock and then cut just a portion of the image and watercolored it. Topped off with a sentiment and a very simple embellishment I really enjoyed the simplistic look of this one.
Here are this cards deets:
Stamps:
Fall Harvest (SEP) by Cornish Heritage Farms
All Things Fall (Rummage Bin) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Ink:
Vintage Sepia (Versafine)
Paper:
White (Neenah)
Accessories:

Watercolor paints (Sakura)
Nestabilities (Spellbinders)
Chipboard Flourish (Basic Grey)
White Paint (Making Memories) to paint the flourish

Ending on a very bright note. SEP is releasing this cool vintage license plate image! I stamped it on a sheet of acetate and then colored it from the back side with my copic markers. Now I am not american so I am sure that I didn't color all the states plates in the right colors....but you get the idea. This would go great with all those cool GM car images too!

I love how the first image looks so absolutely fabulous without even coloring. Wow! And all those colorful license plates--what a great card! Love how you isolated just a part of the harvest image. It's nice to be able get more out of your stamps that way. It's a great idea when you don't really have time to color the whole image, too. All totally wonderful cards!
