Wonder which Designer contains the Grand Prize this month?

Don't you just love all these new Releases!!  I have been having so much fun with them.  I just loved the Pilgrim Thanksgiving stamp set.  I knew I could do a cute side step card with it, so off I went creating.

The images were all colored using copic markers.  I decided to separate the little guys and used them standing alone.  I create my background paper with my gelli plate using green, blue and orange paints.  It really turned out so pretty!! I added Bronze Splendor glitter along the edges of the background paper.

These images are so cute, and so sparkly with all that pretty glitter!!  The glitters used on them are, Sparkling SnowFire Engine RedSpirited Green and Daisy.  

I stamped the sentiment and used a glue pen and Autumn Medley glitter around the edges of the cardstock.  I stamped a second image and cut out the heart and glittered it using a glue pen and Fire Engine Red glitter.  It was then placed on top of the first image with a pop dot.

For these beautiful leaves, I collected them from my yard.  I inked them with versamark and embossed them with Green Marbled Christmas  and Sienna Star EP.  There is a wonderful tutorial HERE with more details on embossing on leaves.  These turned out so pretty, I was just so happy with how they looked!  The little tag was stamped and along the edges glittered using a glue pen and Autumn Medley glitter. 

I hope you have enjoyed my cute little card!!!  I had so much fun making it and just love how cute Side Step Cards are.  If you would like more details on how to make my card please visit my GALLERY.

I would like to share a sneak peek of a project to come using the new Sunflower stamp set.

Please stop back by for the complete project!!

Good Luck to you all, be sure to visit all our wonderful Designer to see all their beautiful project and leave a comment for your chance to win.

See you soon!
