Hiya! Thanks for taking time from your Labor Day Weekend to join us on our September Blog Hop! Maybe you arrived from Diana Gibbs’ blog, or maybe you’re just joining us. Either way, we have some fun stuff to show you, so grab a cup of coffee and hop along!
This month’s theme is anything from the new Holiday Mini catalog that just released a couple of days ago. There’s so much great stuff in this Mini that it was hard for me to decide what to show you today! In the end, the For All Things stamp set and Color Me Autumn DSP won out. I started with a base of Cajun Craze layered with Very Vanilla. It’s all topped off with an embossed panel of Mossy Meadow and the DSP, along with some 3/8″ stitched satin ribbon also in Mossy Meadow. I did some tone on tone stamping with Crushed Curry on a Chalk Talk Framelit die cut in the same color, then stamped the greeting in Early Espresso. My favorite part of this card has to be the wooden leaves from the Autumn Wooden Elements. I wasn’t happy with them in their natural color, so sponged a little Cajun Craze ink on them – so easy! Here’s a closer look:
The colored pearls above the greeting is my next favorite element on this card. I started out with my Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities markers to color them, but they were a bit too bright for the card. I turned to Skin Tone Assortment Blendies and added a little of the Mocha to bring down the brightness and match the color scheme a little better – didn’t know you could blend on a surface so small, did you?!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Now, off you go to see what fun stuff Kathya has for you…
