Happy Friday! I’m headed off this afternoon to attend the Cincinnati Regionals tomorrow! Woohoo!!! So excited…it is like a mini Convention! I’ll be catching up with several people I normally only see at Convention or Leadership, so that will be fun!
Today’s Bloggers’ Challenge is to create a Thinking of You card. I seem to use a lot of this type of card. I wanted to use one of the new fall sets in the Holiday Mini called Autumn Splendor. The leaves have a beautiful fine drawing which makes it perfect for coloring, embossing or just stamping in colors. I have seen some gorgeous cards done with this set!
I also used the coordinating fall designer paper in the big catalog, called Autumn Traditions. These are definitely MY colors! I love the Earth Elements color family! The base is More Mustard and I placed a layer of Soft Suede cardstock on top of that. Then I punched 1 1/4 squares from the Designer Paper and placed them like tiles in the background. I stamped the leaf with Versamark on More Mustard and the acorns on Soft Suede, embossed them with Gold Embossing Powder, then cut them out. Thinking of You is from Thoughts & Prayers stamp set. I cut out the tag from the Matchbox XL Bigz Die with my Big Shot and More Mustard cardstock, then stamped the words in Basic Brown and sponged the edges. I really like how this turned out!
I hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend! It is supposed to be gorgeous here!
