The Petal Press :: Sneak Peek :: Celebrate Fall



Hey there! It's Wednesday already!! Gotta love those four-day workweeks because the week goes by just a tad bit faster! Today, I'm sharing a sneak peek of Tracy Schultz's new stamp set from her The Petal Press collection. This stamp set will be available Wednesday, September 16 at I Heart Papers!

Since school has started back just about for everyone, it's about that time to transition into fall, believe it or not. It's perfect timing for this new stamp set. Check out that sentiment! Isn't the combination of the fonts really nice? What about the pumpkin? Think about all of the ways and color combinations you can stamp this image! I simply stamped the image and colored using Copic markers. I'm such a beginner at coloring, but I will say this, Copics are fairly easy to work with once you practice once or twice. You definitely should have a blender pen and then just color! It seems hard to make a mistake, unless you color outside of the lines (like me)! But, the blender pen forgives many accidents!

I decided to make this design clean and simple and will pop it on over for SCS CAS challenge this week because it involved making a project POP with dimension! The focal image is popped off of the card base, so I thought it was fitting for this week's challenge!

Thanks for popping in today! I hope you have a great Wednesday. Remember to take some time and enjoy yourself (even if it's for 5 minutes)! Check back next week for more sneak peeks and the full reveal!!
