{Gina K Designs} The Simple Things Stamp TV Kit and Always Autumn

So did you have fun looking at all the cards on the hop yesterday?  I think Autumn cards are some of my very favorites... although I'd really love a winter set that had that cute fox with a scarf on!!

You saw the fox in  The Simple Things Stamp TV kit, right???  Here's a card I posted during the release party...


I just LOVE him!  I stamped him on a Vintage Cuts Pointed Oval stamped with the coordinating frame, then masked him off and stamped the little branch behind him before I colored it all in.  The paper and sentiment are also from the kit.  The only thing I added was the Vintage Cuts border!

Here's another card with the kit...


This time I used the brick block stamp to add texture to a layer.  It is stamped in Faded Brick ink onto Tomato Soup cardstock.  The little buttons are tied with some of the Free With $25.00 gold cord, but, if I were you, I would get a whole spool of it.  I love this stuff!! 

Next up is Theresa's new set Always Autumn.  The card I shared during the release party used no patterned paper and lots of coloring with my Spectrum Noir markers...


Prickly Pear, Dark Chocolate, Gold Cord, Dark Chocolate Buttons, Vintage Cuts borders, gingham ribbon...  All the little things can make a card come together so easily!

For my second card with Theresa's set I used more of the Garden Tour paper that was free with a $50 purchase last month and is now available to buy.  I fell in love with this pretty pattern and wanted to show you that the  Always Autumn set doesn't have to always be used for Autumn cards! :)


(BTW, the piercing around the circle is done with some new pierced Spellbinder dies.  I love the look, so I got them in all the classic shapes so I don't have to do as much stitching on my cards!! :)  LOL)
For this card I stamped the flower first, colored it with Spectrum Noir markers and cut it out.  Then I popped it up on a diecut and embossed circle on which I had stamped the Many Thanks greeting that I had curved on the block.  The burlap and gingham ribbon, as well as the Cranberry paper, are all from the Stamp TV kit.

OK, just one more!  
This one features this month's Free with $75.00 stamp duo - Love You More.


I played with my new pierced dies again, this time the square ones, and kept my color combination very classic - kraft, dark chocolate, ivory and fresh asparagus.  I stamped the border twice on my ivory layer and matted it on dark chocolate.  After attaching it to my card base, I added a Fresh Asparagus Vintage Cuts border, and then hand cut a little banner for the sentiment.  My card is 4.25" square - the perfect size to still fit in an A2 envelope! :)

WHEW!  That was a lot! : )  Thanks so much for stopping by!
  Remember that all of the new products are available NOW at Gina K Designs, and be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team for more inspiration with the new sets.  Here's the info and the list ...

    THE FOX IS MY FAVORITE ONE. LIKE YOU HAVE COLOURED THE SUNFLOWER IN A DIFFERENT COLOUR JUST SHOWS YOU CAN USE THEM AFTER AUTUMN. BRILL JOB.

    I love the last card. What a fun way to use the border stamp. I might just have to place a big order now!

    Judi said...

    You did a great job on your cards! The colors on the first card looks so cheery for an autumn card. The buttons on the second card look great on there. Wonderful coloring on your 3rd card and the shadowing looks real. Great colors on your Many Thanks card. You can never go wrong with a classic card.

    Sandy M said...

    Thanks so much Tricia for sharing all those beautiful cards. Love them all.

    Gayle said...

    So pretty and beautifully colored.

    Debbie Bauder said...

    Where to start? I love the color combination & vintage cuts border on the fox card. I like using the brick stamp instead of plain card stock on your 2nd card. The buttons were a nice touch. The pumpkin card is beautiful and you tied everything together (vintage cuts border, button, gold cord & ribbon). Great job on the coloring you did. All your cards are well done.

    Queen-of-Cards said...

    absolutely gorgeous!

    Ann De Valk said...

    Beautiful cards. I like those buttons on the leaf card--great composition.

    Julie S. said...

    All of these cards are gorgeous! I like the fourth one best - I like how you showed that beautiful flower in a non-fall color.

    Violet said...

    Love them all but I must say the LEAF card is my favorite. The colors make it the perfect fall card!!

    Diana-Chuck Scott said...

    Awesome cards again today - so inspiring! Thank you.

    Jeanne Elenbaas said...

    I love the addition of the lacy, feminine details and the different ways you put the gold cord through the buttons.

    Helena Wilde said...

    Love all your cards. I love the colors and the pumpkins.

    Rosy Newlun said...

    You have so much to see here, Tricia! You created such fun and interesting, inspiring cards. I love the reds in one, the leaves behind the fox in another, the interest-pulling border cuts and the piercing you even created. It's fun to see all you've done!
