Sneak Peek: Autumn Days

I thought I'd feature a sneak peek at a few new products and stamps from the Stampin Up catalog today. The images are from the new stamp set, Autumn Days. I also used new In Colors...Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, and Dusty Durango. The sentiment is from the new set, Teeny Tiny Wishes, and it is mounted onto a mat from the new punch, Modern Label punch. Here's some great news...SU is finally making markers to match their In Colors...woo hoo!

{recipe: Autumn Days (SU), teeny Tiny Wishes (SU), Weathered (SU), dusty durango ink and cardstock, soft suede ink and cardstock, crushed curry ink and cardstock, river rock ink, handsome hunter and ruby red markers, soft suede markers, mini library clip, word window punch, modern label punch, basic grey ribbon}

I made this card for my father-in-law. He's a big outdoorsman, and I know he'll appreciate this card. We purchased Dad another print from our favorite local artist, Anthony J. Padgett. Anthony lives in Noblesville, and he has a studio right in the historic square, where he paints in the big picture window of his shop with his yellow lab, Toby, at his feet. Anthony is an internationally renowned nature artist...he was named the Ducks Unlimited Artist of The Year, and he tours the world, showcasing his art. We've purchased two labrador prints for our Dad, but his bird paintings are also amazing!
