Hello again! It’s time for another Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop Group… and the theme is “Fall Frenzy”. Check out my card…
Whoa… the colors on my card are clashing with the the blog hop logo – yikes! But it just doesn’t matter!!! My card… these Leaf Labels are so fun to play with – here I added some color to the edges with sponge daubers and several inks: Poppy Parade, Evening Evergreen and Crushed Curry. I kept them pretty soft. And in the middle is stamped the simple word ‘hello’ from the Soft Seedlings stamp set. I love this font! I also added some of the Amber Gems that come packaged with the Leaf Labels. But I’m ahead of myself… perhaps we should begin with the card base 🥴 I like layers as you know, so: Crushed Curry card base layered with Crumb Cake then Rings of Love DSP (FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 product order!) The next is the fun fold part… Crushed Curry 3 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 14. Layer the front with Crumb Cake, then Gingham Cottage DSP in So Saffron. Take another piece of Crushed Curry 2 1/2 x 4 14 and lay it crosswise on the front and adhere with dimensionals. Run a slightly smaller panel of Crumb cake through the Timber 3D embossing folder and add it to this Crushed Curry piece. Now we decorate…
- Ink the leaf stamp from Hello Harvest stamp set, in Crushed Curry, stamp off and with sponge daubers add a bit of color to the leaf tips: Evening Evergreen and Poppy Parade. Do this twice cleaning between each process, then die cut using the coordinating Rustic Pumpkin Dies. Before putting this stamp away, stamp a 4 x 5 14 Basic White panel and the envelope front following the same procedure.
- Place the two die cut leaves, one under the Leaf Label and one on top. Add a twirly stem die cut using the Rustic Pumpkin Dies and Garden Green card stock scrap.
- Adhere all these to the embossed Crushed Curry piece.
- Add the bow made from separated strings of Baker’s Twine in White and Crumb Cake… with a dab of liquid glue.
Add this folded panel to the card base (remember the three layers that started the card), centering it. Now decorate the inside of the folded portion: Crumb Cake layer, then decorated Basic White layer.
- The Basic White layer… stamp the sentiment in Soft Suede ink using this wonderful sentiment from Hello Harvest stamp set.
- Stamp two flowers in Memento Black ink on either side of the sentiment. Color the flowers with Stampin’ Blends Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede
Now turn the completed card over and add the Basic White panel stamped with the leaf from Hello Harvest.
Envelope: Remember the front has already been stamped with the leaf from Harvest Hello. Now add more of the same Gingham Cottage to the flap and your card is complete :O)
I should have taken a photo of the card standing, it would have shown the dimension and given a different view. Oh well…another time… Now it’s time to head over to the next team member participating this month. Feel free to use the ‘buttons’ or click on a name to see that blog. Whatever you choose, don’t miss any of the hoppers :O) Enjoy.
