Usually when the design team feature Stampendous I always go for those adorable little House Mouse stamps so for a change I have chosen to featured Stampendous Snowy Postcard rubber stamp which I have stamped with Versamark Watermark ink pad and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.
 I have created the background using Impression Obsessions French Script stamp which I've heat embossed with white embossing powder and then use my Prima watercolor paints to add some colour & I have gone for a shabby chic look on this card and have distressed the paper edges with my scissors
The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp's new Stamptember On A String stamp set, & I've added a few finishing touches using a pretty Prima flower,  Simon's Stitched SnowflakesTonic Nuvo White Crystal Drops.

Clean & Simple - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
Listening to the wind & rain last night from our first storm of the season it would seem Autumn has arrived!
I'm feeling really thankful our weather is nothing like what other poor people have suffered from hurricane Irma & hope my crafty friends affected by it are all safe.

A big thank you to CAS-ual Fridays for very kindly allowing my teamies & I to choose a stamp set we wanted to feature. I chose the lovely Pinecones clear stamp set.

I have stamped the Pinecones in Simon Says Stamps Khaki ink, the branches in Leaf Green ink & the sentiment in Black. I decided I wanted to add some more depth to my image so added some shading using Polychromo pencils, & I also added a few Honey Gold glitter drops to finish.
