I received more beautiful stamps from Designs by Ryn to work with. Her stamps are high quality & deeply etched which gives crisp images every time. They are also great to use with other mediums besides ink & paper. Visit Ryn's Website or Facebook Page for information and/or inspiration using her stamps.
The first card below features her Acorn Faerie who is so adorable with her leaf dress & wings and the sweet squirrel handing up an acorn top for her hat. I also used some of Ryn's awesome leaf designs that can be used to create texture on backgrounds.
Update Friday, Oct 5th. Miranda of Miracle Art Inspirations has just posted a gorgeous card using Ryn's Dancing Faerie set. Miranda who is Guest Designing for Ryn is a talented artist, & card designer. You won't be disappointed if you take time for a visit at her Blog to see her beautiful work. Also if you get a chance, hop over to Eileen's Blog who also designs for Ryn to check out her beautiful work as well !
I'm entering this card into the following two Challenges:
- Creative Moments Bloggers Network Challenge - the theme is Anything Goes, this is a new challenge site
- Crazy 4 Challenges - Challenge C4C156 the theme is Leaves.
The background was created with Dylusions Inks (brown, red, orange, yellow) and then over stamped using Ryn's Forest Floor CM-F12 Stamp and Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
I embossed Acorn Faerie CM-M12 with Brown on Watercolour paper. I coloured her with Tombow markers and edged around the die cut with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I added holograph glitter on her leaves & shoes. I layered on cardstock as show and added ribbon & a leaf charm.

The next card below was created with both Mulberry Leaf CM-F8 and Forest Floor 1, CM-F12 stamps. The sentiment is from Impression Obsession - C3534 All Seasons which pretty much describes how I feel about Autumn :)
I used Dylusions Inks again for the background, this time with Green, Orange & Red. I over stamped the background using the two leaf stamps & Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I embossed the sentiment with brown and blended Spiced Marmalade & Aged Mahogany Distress Inks around it. I used Vintage Photo on the green Die cut label. Orange rhinestones & red ribbon are the finishing touches.
