This is the last day of reveals for Ink to Paper's October release! Tomorrow evening at 10 PM EST, you will be able to purchase the new items and I hope you will enjoy them as much as I have!
Today, we are introducing you to Leaves in Fall Stamp Set and Dies + Feathered Friends 5 Mini Stamp Set and Dies + Folky Holiday Stamp Set and Dies + Merry Alphabet Dies +Feathered Friends 5 Dies + Just Sentiments: He is Born Stamp Set. My post is another long one with four cards to share!
My first card uses the Leaves in Fall with the Feathered Friends 5 Mini set. You also see the wreath die from Joyous Holiday introduced earlier. I went with a grunge look by sponging aged-looking colors and adding some crackle texture paste to the base panel.

If you scroll down to my first post of the day, you'll see my Color Throwdown card using this Leaves in Fall set on a slimline card. -->
Next, we switch gears to a folk art style stamp set called Folky Holiday. This one has a gazillion ways to arrange all of the elements but, I went with a one layer design that reminds me of the old Pennsylvania Dutch hex signs.
Because I used the two birds (? doves) in the center, I wanted to use a sentiment that included peace on earth.
STAMPS: Folky Holiday, Peaceful Forest
INK: Pinefeather, Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky, Bright Buttercup, New Leaf; Versamark
PAPER: Pinefeather, Blue Sky, White, Vellum
DIES: Cover Plate: Trellis, Love to Layer: Scalloped Circles, Circles

This card showcases another bird to add to the bird die series. He's a chubby fellow and has been hitting the feeder quite heavily - haha!
I love the sparkly tree which contrasts with the barren tree adjacent to it (from a previous release). A gold embossed sentiment on vellum was added to avoid covering up much of the scene.
STAMPS: Winter Wonder, He is Born

Last, but not least, is a card that highlights the Merry Alphabet dies. I dry embossed the base and cut out a silver embossed "Christmas" from the background script stamp called Holiday Spirit introduced earlier in the week.
STAMPS: Holiday Spirit
PAPER: Lovely Lady, Green Parakeet, Hawaiian Shores, Sweet Blush, Pure Poppy, White
DIES: Skinny Frames: Diagonal Border
