So excited that the second in our series of Fall-i-days blog hops is finally here, and I'm at the beginning of it! I know my fellow demonstrators have come up with fun and inspiring projects for you! For links to all their blogs and all of our llama hops, click on the gorgeous banner up there that Stephanie created!
The first thing I'd like to share with you today is a Halloween card. I love the versatility of stamp sets like this one with lots of little images; they work for treats, tags, cards, anything really! So cute, too.
Stamps: Spooky Bingo Bits
Ink: Basic Black, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie
Cardstock: Old Olive, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie
Tools / Accessories: 1" circle & Curly Label punches, Stampin' Dimensionals
Technique: Faux Tearing (sponging w/ a torn mask) and actual tearing
Next is a teacher thank you card I created for this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge using My Digital Studio. Since version 2 of the software is now in full release, Stampin' Up! is donating the remaining disks of version 1 to schools. Contact me or your local demonstrator if you would like more information.
I printed out the image from Greeting Card Kids and colored it by hand, then scanned it in and inserted it into my project like a photograph. Used the eyedropper tool to color the circles and the mat of the oval the same red as the girl's apple and the blue of the boy's book. In the new version of the software, images can be colored digitally; so easy!
Finally, the first card I've ever made with French Foliage! A wedding invitation inspired me to make a card stamped with purple leaves. What do you think?
Stamps: French Foliage, Curly Cute
Ink: Crumb Cake, Elegant Eggplant, Rich Razzleberry
Cardstock: Whisper White, Perfect Plum
Accessories: Linen Thread
Technique: OSW (one-sheet wonder: create your own patterned paper with your stamps, here I did a half sheet that I cut into strips to make a set of matching cards)
