Greetings friends. Today it is time to share with you the brand new October Limited Edition Red Rubber kit.  This is what the kit looks like. It is loaded with images for fall and Thanksgiving:

I have two cards to share with you using the new kit. I used decorative paper and a tag die on the two cards, but it is very important to me to only use stamps from the kit to make the samples. I wanted to make sure that if you wanted to recreate anything, you would have all the images to do so.

For the Turkey card, I cut out a white tag and then added my turkey and sentiment on top using black Impression Obsession ink. When the ink was dry, colored the turkey with some watercolor pencils and a blender pen. The blender pen has glycerin in it and therefore doesn't warp the paper as much as a paintbrush and water would. For the background, I used paper from the Fall Floral 6" x 6" pack. I knew they would all coordinate well with each other.

For my second card, I used the same exact tag, but this time I stamped the image with black Memento ink and colored it with Copic Markers. I then popped up the tag with a little bit of foam tape. The background of this card is from the Autumn Scenes 6" x 6" pack, which I thought paired well with the corn:


Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you will stop by again tomorrow for inspiration in using the rest of the stamps from the October Kit.

I love the tag turkey card. The layout and design is on point. Thank you for the information on watercolor pencils and the glycerin blender pen. I am going to give this technique a try. I struggle with alcohol markers. Thanks for sharing!

Perfect Turkey card and I almost thought the corn cobs were a scarecrow in the field. Great job! The scenic paper pack is terrific!
