Now on to my card.

I have really been feeling the fall weather lately
(it's 58 here right now as I write this)
and to make it even more 'fall-like' are the new stamps from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

I chose Turkey Dish for my reveal card.
I just love this cute image,
she reminds me so much of a friend of mine,
the hair, the glasses, even her 'trendy' clothes
 (good thing she doesn't read my!

I used a black card stock for my base with a piece
of fall designer paper on that.

Next I added a Cuttlebug embossing folder (kitchen weave) to that.

 I did a technique that is so easy but yet
brings great results.
Using a brayer (the red rubber one like mine works the best)
I brayered orange ink on the side with the lettering on it.
Carefully add your card stock to the other side and run through
your embossing machine.

Once done, then add Nuvo glue to the areas you want to add glitter.

I used Sunset glitter for my leaves.
Set aside to dry.
Once dry, I die cut a circle and placed on top of the
kitchen weave embossed panel.
I used a scrap piece to cut a few fall leaves to add later.

The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
I colored her with my Copics,
added brushable glue to her skirt and added a bit more of the Sunset glitter.
Her apron top I added polka dost using Nuvo Crystal Drops Ripened Pumpkin.
A bit of the glue and glitter was added to her hair piece as well.

I stamped the sentiments with Versamark, then embossed with 
Black Detail embossing powder.
I cut both out using Stitched Circle dies and Stitched Square dies from Memory Box.
The little glittered leaves were added as well as a small bow using
Mon Ami Green Pull Ribbon 1/8".

You should have come from Chris's blog.
I am the last one the hop, but if you get lost along the way,
the entire list is above!

Make sure and visit all the designer blogs and leave a comment for your chance to
win the entire release, now wouldn't that be fun!!!

Your friend should be happy to be featured on your blog, tee hee! She looks like a cool chick! You've got me looking into those Nuvo drops. They don't take up much room... You're very good at applying them. Love that orange glitter. I'm going to stamp all day today and I can't wait! It's World Cardmaking Day.
