Fall - In Spirit Anyway! (Video Teaser + Giveaway)

Someday it will be fall in Texas, right? If  I keep making fall cards, maybe... It's worth a shot.

Luckily, it's fall crafting season so I'm in luck with fall themed images like this month's kit - it's so cute. There are these little dancing critters that all look like they are at a party. It's so funny - when I was coloring this little guy literally the whole time I thought he was a wolf, like the Big Bad wolf, but now I think he's a bear!

Anway, I put some happy non-traditional colors into the leaves to match his coat and his fur with OLO Markers.

It's such a cute little happy vibe I left it clean and simple.

Here's what the full premium kit looks like.

That layering stencil goes with that window die - that's what I used in my sneak peek this weekend! SO pretty - wait until you see some of the other samples with this in the hop - Emily used pinks and purples and it's SO pretty. 

Speaking of sneak peeks! I have a process video coming up for colored pencil and these beautiful mushrooms! I did some masking to include this adorable fox, so watch for this video on the Hero Blog on the 11th. I will walk you through my process for using pencils on dark cardstock.

Here's what all the add-ons look like this month. Lots of fall potential! The gnomes are so cute. 

So that brings me to the window die & stencil I sneaked from the regular kit. I used a combo of dye inks and reactive inks on the same kraft I used with the pencils - I just love color on dark cardstock. I put all that over a Paradise card base and highlighted the images on the sentiment with a white gel pen. The fonts & images are so whimsical.
