Ink to Paper :: September Release :: Day Two

We're on Day Two of the Ink to Paper September product introductions.  I officially have a favorite new Christmas stamp set, because of it, too!  I'll get to that in a moment, but I'm going to celebrate a little bit of autumn first...

It's almost fall officially, so I made this card in preparation for that.  It's helping to introduce the Take Your Place Kit stamps and dies, as well as a new In Stitches die, Pumpkin.  You can see the shape of the pumpkin in the background of the card--it's cut out of Berry Sorbet and Sweet Blush Bitty Big patterned papers, with an Orange Zest stem.

In the foreground, are a trio of orange pumpkins and the one in the middle is from Take Your Place.  That kit, by the way, is so adorable for creating place settings at your holiday meals this year.  The 'Happy Fall' sentiment is from the kit, as well.  The pumpkins on either side of it are from last month's Hello Pumpkin set.

Next up is a card that features that new favorite I mentioned, which is Sweet Orange Christmas.  I love it because it's gorgeous, but also because I've loved the orange images for the holidays for the last year or two.  This stamp set is so wonderfully executed that I'm sure you'll love it, also!  I stamped several of the oranges in shades of Orange Zest, Canyon Clay, and Summer Sunrise.  The smaller greens and twigs are also from the set, while the larger pine branches are from the new Tree Essentials, as is the sentiment.

In the background, you can see even more boughs on display from the Border Bling: Fir frame.  I still love a good pine/fir branch, and feel those images are timeless, so I was excited to use all of today's offerings!  While all of the stamped branches are done in Pinefeather, I chose a New Leaf card base for some variation on the greens.
