Shimmerz Paints & Cornish Heritage Farms Stamps

Are you getting excited for Fall?! I know I am! The changing of this season is my very favorite time of year! :) I know, I know! It's still warm, but at sunset there is a subtle nip in the air and that means it's beginning to change. YAY!!!! :D :D :D Love it! Love it! Love it!

This month at Shimmerz, I was lucky to participate in the product swap withCornish Heritage Farms Stamps. I got to play with this adorable Kim Hughes stamp set called "Autumn Trees". I love this set and can imagine myself using it in many, many ways! :)

Welcome Autumn Card - For my first project, I couldn't resist creating a happy, Fall scene on the front of my card.

I stamped all my images on cream cardstock using Timber Brown Staz On ink and then used Shimmerz paints to color them in. For the tree, I used Choc-o-lot Shimmerz on the trunk, and both Sunny and Sunflower Shimmerz on the leaves. The scarecrow is painted with Choc-o-lot, Green Olive, Sunflower, Marigold, and Fire Engine Red Shimmerz. The leaves on the ground are Sunflower. The pumpkins are Green Olive and Marigold Shimmerz. The lines of the pumpkin are shaded with Spiced Cider Blingz. I then stamped the sentiment on a small piece of canvas and used lots of stitching for a homespun, Autumn feel. :)

Welcome Card - I just had to use that cute crow image for a "Welcome" card. He just has a friendly, home-y feeling about him! :)

Again, I used Timber Brown Staz On ink to stamp my images. I painted the leaves using Sunflower and Fire Engine Red Shimmerz, and Spiced Cider Blingz. The crow is filled in with Coffee Shimmerz.

A big THANK YOU to Cornish Heritage Farms for swapping with Shimmerz! Be sure to check out the Shimmerz blog throughout the week for more Cornish Heritage Farms stamping projects from other DT members. :)
