Lil' Inker Designs & CardMaker Blog Hop

Hello friends, we are having a blog hop with the super amazing Lil' Inker Designs. I am super excited to have a chance to play with their products!!!
We were asked to create any occasion card using fall colors showcasing their amazing products.

I made two cards for the hop today, here is my 1st card:
 

I used distress inks and water colored some fall colors (olive green, fired brick, ripe persimmon, scattered straw) and colored few strips of Tim Holtz water color paper.
The images are from Perfect Pair stamp set which is stamped on Crafters Companion ultra smooth white cardstock and colored them using copics.
I glued all the water colored strips directly on a white card base , I also glued some strips of gold foil cardstock from DCWV; the colored images are adhered using foam squares. I die cut the alphabets from a red cardstock using Mixed and Stitched Alphabet Die Set and adhered that also using foam squares.

I added some glitter to all the images, here is a close up:


And here is my 2nd card:


First I took Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock and stamped the coffee cups from Coffee Talk Stamp set using MFT black licorice waterproof ink, I masked the coffee cup in the front to stamp the cups in the back; I used Hero Arts watercolor wheel to color the whole image. Once everything was dry I did some layered die cutting; using Mixed and Stitched Alphabet Die Set first I die cut the words from the water colored panel then die cut the word from four separate scraps of white cardstock. This created four exact cuts which I then adhered together to create a thick, chipboard-like embellishment for dimension
Here is a close up:


I added lots of glitter to the image and added sequins for embellishment.

Hope you liked my card.
