Exciting News

Hi friends! It's the first day of August and I've got some exciting news! Fourteen years ago today I launched my first stamp set with Verve Stamps. Today, August 1, 2021, I'm launching my first stamp set with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps under the J Tilman Designs label.  Hooray!

My first set, Fall Breeze, is a mash-up of a digi set I had available from Verve that later became the Autumn Leaves 4 x 8 stamp set. I added a few more stamps than were in the original stamp set and changed up the sizes just a smidge, so the new Fall Breeze set is a 6x6" set.  It also has coordinating dies! And all new releases (excluding bundles) are 10% off through August 9! 

These images were some  of my favorites to play with, and since I LOVE coffee, I just had to bring them back to the stamp world!

I started by stamping off all the images and coloring them with Copic markers while I watched my boys' 2 hour long tennis lessons. I definitely get a lot of coloring practice in!  LOL My dies didn't arrive in time for my samples, so I opted to fussy cut the images. Things like the pumpkin image and the leaf in the sentiment I stamp directly on the card, then fussy cut just the main image, leaving off the delicate vines and such, then paper piece for a nice clean look.

The background is stamped with the August Stamp of the Month, Fall Background (available for purchase or as a FREE gift with a $60 purchase during the month of August). I stamped it tone on tone on soft sky cardstock (a throwback to the early days of Verve), then layered everything together and matted with pacific point cardstock inked with Prize Ribbon Distress ink.  My finished card is a 3.5" x 8.5" slimline.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  If you're feeling like shopping, I'd love it if you'd use the links in this post. You can buy the stamp and die together in one click in the Fall Breeze Bundle. I've also included the entire August release in the linky widget below.  I have several completely new stamp sets coming over the next few months, so be sure to watch this space for my latest stamp designs.
