Ok, let me show you some of the projects I created for this release. First up, here's a little square card that I made with the Sweet Treats Stamp setMatching Dies and Combo.
I colored and cut all the cupcakes, cookies and goodies and then had fun arranging them on the tiered treat tray.
Next up is the Stitched Harvest Stamp setMatching Dies and Combo. I love getting the look of cross stitching by simple stamping!
 I love the little smiley faces that you can put on the pumpkins, pie and acorns.
 I created this card with the We Blend Stamp set, Matching Dies and Combo.
 I had so much fun Copic coloring the fruits and veggies  and arranging them near the blender. I used a Copic Colorless blender to create the mottled look of the avocado skin and I added some Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the ice cubes for some shine.
 I am super excited that Halloween is coming! I used the Hocus Pocus Stamp setMatching Dies and Combo to create this Halloween scene.
I love how the matching dies help cut out so many tiny images from the stamp set, like that little cat. I have NO patience for fussy cutting lol!
Moving right along to Christmas! Truly the only time I bake cookies is at the holidays, so I fell in love with the Cookie Time Stamp Set, Matching Dies and Combo!
 I love both the full images and the ones that are designed to look like they are at a counter top. So cute!
 And, last but not least, the Gingerbread House die! You get the basic house, a layer of snow, the chimney and door as well as house front to customize your house in any colors you want! The house fits perfectly on a gift tag!
 I also created a tow of gingerbread houses for this layout!

Ok, now that you have all the exciting details, let's talk about my last card for this hop! I absolutely had to use the adorable critters from the Happy Fall Stamp set. I stamped them and colored them with Copic markers. I stamped the tiny leave from that set mutiple times in the air around the characters because it seemed like such a fun, fall scene that I was envisioning wind blowing leaves around. I've mentioned that it's well over 100 degrees here, right lol?! Clearly I have fall on the brain!

I wanted my little mice standing on a hill, so I took a piece of white cardstock and blended the Olive Branch Hybrid Ink cube from the Jewelry Beads set on it to create a nice fall, grassy green and then die cut the hill with a die from the Cutting Edge Borders I set.
Once the hill was dry, I treated it with antistatic powder and then used LDRS Creative Watermark Ink to stamp the sentiment as well as White Embossing Powder. My scene was mounted onto brown cardstock and then I layered that over a 4.25 x 5.5 inch panel from the Happy Fall Paper Pad. I LOVE the patterns in that pad!

Ok, now on to my card for today! Two of my favorite products from the release were the Hybrid Ink Cubes and the stencils! I combined them for today's card for a very autumnal look.
I started with the Leaves Stencil and the Dan-D-Lion Ink cube which comes in a 4 color combo pack called Jewelry Beads.
Next, I layered some of the In Your Face Orange ink cube,
And finally, I swiped a bit of the Iced Tea ink cube on several spots. Iced Tea is in the CobbleStone Hybrid Mini Ink Cube Pack.
I love the way the inks blend so beautifully and create such a pretty background using the stencil!
I added a bit of patterned paper from the Happy Fall Paper Pad and some stamping using the Happy Fall Sentiments stamp set as well as the mini pumpkins from the Happy Fall Stamp set.
I love the Leaves stencil so much! I will be using it over and over again as the fall season approaches!

Ok, now that the details are out of the way, let me share my card for today! It is still SO hot where I live and I am dreaming of fall! 
I used the Fall Full of Leaves stamp set and a stamp positioner along with the new Cobblestone and Jewelry Beads Hybrid Ink Cubes to stamp multicolor leaves.
I simply inked the stamp up with one color (the lightest color I was using for that particular leaf) and then used the cube to add a darker color along the edge.
I love the way it makes it look like the leaves are turning!
I added a strip of the Happy Fall 6x6 paper pad and a sentiment from the Happy Fall Sentiments stamp set to complete my card.
You will find all the products I used, as well as all the products in this release linked below!
