Autumn View

Welcome to Sparkle N Sprinkle's August 1 Reveal.

This month SIX new stamp sets are being introduced. These sets are 20% off their regular price, until August 3rd.  All the sets are available on Cling Mounted Rubber and as a digital image. TheSunflower, set #643 is the stamp set featured in  This Month's Technique Video.

The sets are:

Knight Owl #632     (Digi version: DIGI632)
Sunflower #643     (Digi version: DIGI643)
A Little Note #645     (Digi version: DIGI645)
Pilgrim Thanksgiving #646     (Digi version: DIGI646)
Wisps of Autumn #647     (Digi version: DIGI647)
Witchy Gerty #648     (Digi version: DIGI648)

I chose the Wisps of Autumn stamp set 647 to use on my card. I don't know about you, but I am looking forward to Autumn. I love the cooler weather and beautiful colors!

I made the window by using the Spellbinders Fancy Window die and adding the beautiful  Copper Flame embossing powder 453. I added the embossing powder a second time and sprinkled a little Champagne glitter G1045 in it for more sparkle. The saying is from the Autumn Swirl set 410 and was embossed using Teddy Brown embossing powder EP

The pumpkin is from the Fall Harvest set 474. I used Tiger Orange velvet glitter GM2003 on it. I love this Wisps of Autumn set because it can be used with many of our other Fall sets.
