Paper Sweeties October Preview

Good Monday morning! Being that it's the first of the month (already!) the Paper Sweeties have got some super samples to show you of some upcoming stamp sets, to be released on the 15th of October. Here's a card that I made based on this week's Shabby Tea Room inspiration photo and sketch requirement:

I used the new "The Splendor of Autumn" set which will be released on the 15th. I stamped the sentiment onto a Nested Maple Leaf die and sponged the edges with Goldrush & Barn Red ink. The floral accent consists of Kaisercraft flowers, fall-themed leaves, raffia, Elegant Scrollwork dies and tulle spikes. I added a duo of twine adorned buttons above the sentiment and also embossed both the background and banner panels. The patterned paper is Echo Park's Chillingsworth Manor.

Here's the inspiration photo:

And the sketch, both from the Shabby Tea Room:
