==========================================================

Julie has worked her magic once again (she always does!) and brought to majestic life flowers in the style found in In Bloom: Addie's Garden and The Big, the Bold and Extras.  This time she has taken on autumn flowers like chrysanthemum and sunflower with In Bloom: Anna's Flora, winter flowers and foliage like poinsettia, mistletoe, berries and pine cones in In Bloom: Elsa's Flora and then glorious leaves, acorns, wheat and a feather in In Bloom: Renee's Leaves.

You can make projects for the holidays, birthdays, weddings, thank you, sympathy, just because and so much more!  These flowers are just stunning and will add an instant elegance to your project!

Today we are also introducing additions to the In a Word series which happen to all be the same length.  We are coming out with five (5) more this release: In a Word: Home Cutaway + In a Word: Joy Cutaway + In a Word: Merry Cutaway + In a Word: Peace Cutaway and In a Word: Thanks Cutaway.  These dies are so fun and versatile that they will go with any style of crafting and since they are a bit chunkier than our The Big, the Bold series they would be ideal for some shaker projects too. :-)

>>>THE GOOD STUFF<<<

Let's get to the fun part and see what Julie, Keren Baker (our October Leading Lady), and The Talent (our supernova creative team) made with the products. And make sure you visit Keren's and each of The Talent's blogs for more knock-it-out-of-the-park projects and details (Mayuri will be sharing her projects in November).  Don't forget to share some love with them too!

Julie

Hello everyone!  I’ve been enjoying reading the comments on the recent posts and your enthusiasm is fantastic.  We are excited to present this release to you.  We know you have been waiting a while, but we hope you feel that it was worth the wait.  I have a few projects to share with you today, and then prepare yourselves.  Keren Baker and The Talent, and our Talent in Residence, Lydia Evans have truly outdone themselves.

I am starting with a fall card with a Welcome Home sentiment created using the small “welcome” from Happiest of Holidays with Evelin T Designs (featured later this week) and one of our new Cutaways - In A Word: Home Cutaway.  I started with a kraft card base, and wanted to let the pattern papers show off all of the added elements.  I do love a good plaid, and after 2 attempts at making my own, I found this lovely Studio Calico plaid, and have made plans to practice making plaids in the near future.  If you are interested in making your own, you might join me in reviewing recent videos from Laura Bassen and Kimberly Crawford where they have created their own fabulous plaids.  Just call me a fangirl. :)

jmog_welcome-home_oct2015_day1


I continued to look through my Studio Calico 6x6 papers Shay has gifted me and found some great fall color patterns and stamped the leaves and acorn from In Bloom: Renee’s Leaves.  After fussy cutting them, they all received some Vintage Photo Distress Ink love and were placed to frame the word home.  Each oak leaf also has a foam square to allow it to lift and curve for added dimension.  

jmog_tis-the-season_oct2015_day1


For the next card, I stamped the mistletoe from In Bloom: Elsa’s Flora and used copics to color the image (G12, G24, YG67).  The berries are accented with Wink of Stella and then Glossy Accents to make them rounded and shiny.  The ‘Tis the Season sentiment is from another soon to be featured stamp set called Merry & Bright with Evelin T Designs.  Evelin’s calligraphy is simply wonderful, and I know you are going to love the variety of sentiments, as well as her adorable illustrations.  I stamped the sentiment in two parts with a bronze embossing powder. To finish off the card, I mounted the image on a pale green pearlescent paper in the same green shade as the leaves, and added a tiny ribbon to the stem.  

I have one more holiday card for you today, and it features a pink poinsettia, and more from In Bloom: Elsa’s Flora.  Yes I do love a pink poinsettia!  This card includes a new scallop frame die from our Essentials: Noelle Cutaways set and I left this panel white and mounted it with foam tape for more dimension.  I kept going back and forth about adding just a subtle hint of pink around the edges, but I am sometimes heavy handed with the distress ink.  I need to take lessons from Joni Andaya.  I marvel at her soft backgrounds. I need practice!!!  LOL

jmog_season'sgreetings_oct2015_day1


The flower components were all stamped on bristol with distress inks, and then water colored with more distress inks.  The flower did get a second stamping to accentuate the petals. The berries are actually all from one stamp that I colored with copics and then cut into three clusters.  The evergreens were stamped directly to the background in distress inks.  The flower, leaves and berries were all fussy cut, bathed in more Wink of Stella (more shimmery IRL) and then pieced together popped up with foam squares over the evergreens.  

For more shimmer and sparkle, the Season’s Greetings (also from Merry & Bright with Evelin T Designs) was stamped and embossed in silver, Stardust Stickles were added to the center of the flower, and a sprinkling of Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were added as a finishing touch.  

And there you have it - my October 2015 Release cards for today.  Ok, now you need to keep scrolling - prepare to be impressed.  I hope you are sitting for this.  If not, brace yourself for a floral feast for the eyes!

October Leading Lady, Keren Baker
