Glitter Queens October Blog Hop-Day 1
Good morning Ladies,
Welcome to our October Blog Hop!, we are so glad to have you join in and hop along, we hope you enjoy your visit and that we inspire you with our fall projects.
I chose to use the Stamp Set's 'French Foliage', from the IBC and 'Faith in Nature' one of the hostess sets from the IBC, I also used the DSP Spice cake. For anyone out there thinking of hosting a workshop there are some fabulous hostess sets to choose from and they are so affordable, you will love the new benefits of hosting a workshop! Plus in October you also get a Big Shot when you become a demonstrator!
For today's Hop I created 2 greeting cards. I love the leaves in the French Foliage set and I played around and stamped them in greens, yellows, oranges and browns, trying to mimic the colors mother nature gives the leaves this time of year.
For my first card, I wanted to showcase the pear stamp from the 'Faith in Nature' set, so I used two dies to cut out and create the frame using 'Spice Cake' DSP, I used dimensional's to attach the frame, after stamping the pear image in 'Lucky Limade' I used SU Watercolor Pencils to color in the image and added dimensional's to the back, then centered and attached it to the card front. I finished the card front by accenting the frame with some of the stamped leaves, I also added one leaf to the inside of the card.
I hope you like it, love the way it turned out and will be using the 'framed' technique again!
For my second card I decided to create and easel card, I started out with some neutral CS. After cutting and scoring I used the 'French Foliage' set, and I randomly stamped the CS with the cursive wording stamp, the leaves, and the distressing stamp, then I used 2 layers of complimentary CS ( more mustard & tempting turquoise) to frame the DSP before attaching it to the front, I used the same CS frame around the sentiment before attaching. To complete the card I attached the leaves around randomly and used the cursive writing stamp layered on DSP to make the easel stand up.
I really love the way this card turned out too, I think it would make a nice fall display at any Thanksgiving table.
