Happy Thursday everyone!  The week is quickly on it's way to ending and it's time for another monthly Stampin' Dreams Hop!

We are celebrating the spooktacular and fall temperatures this month with out theme.  For my project this month, I went the Halloween route and wanted to showcase the Labels to Love stamp set, which can be overlooked in the Annual Catalog with all the great Halloween sets from the Holiday Catalog.
 
The technique on this card is such a simple but has a huge impact on changing how the card looks!  To get the embossed background, I used the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  
The technique is done by inking up the top part of the embossing folder by rubbing the ink pad all over the folder.  Place your piece of cardstock, in this project I used Whisper White, into the folder being careful not to move the paper around, and run it through your Big Shot.  That's it! The paper gets embossed and the ink transfers at the same time. So simple and it looks great in all our colors!

I stamped my image on Pumpkin Pie cardstock and used the coordinating Everyday Label punch to punch out the sentiment.  I used a piece of Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon and a piece of Whisper White Polka Dot Mesh Ribbon together and tied them in a knot at the same time.  I snipped at angles and secured it with a glue dot.

Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop October 2018 - Fall & Thanksgiving!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  The middle of the week is here, along with the middle of the month, and it's time for another hop with the Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop group!

Our great theme this month is Fall and Thanksgiving.  I love Fall with the changing of the colors of the leaves and getting to drink all the hot beverages while wearing the big comfy sweaters.  While Tucson doesn't really get great fall temperatures, the weather has cooled off some and it's not a blazing hot 100 degrees plus outside.

For my project this month, I wanted to showcase a set I haven't used in a while.  The Sheltering Tree stamp set is a great one for crafting projects that work for any season.  The tree stamp and the layering leaves can be used with a multitude of stamp colors!
This project screams fall!  The colors and design are perfect for any fall occasion.  I started with an Early Espresso card stock base and layered using the Buffalo Check stamp with Crushed Curry ink.  Using the Stamparatus tool is the perfect accessory to use when stamping with the Buffalo Check stamp as you can stamp in the same position over and over to get every single space filled in and perfect.

I stamped the tree with Early Espresso ink and layered the leaves using Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie inks.  I first stamped my sentiment on Crushed Curry ink and cut the sentiment out on a strip of paper.  Next I used the Everyday Label punch to punch out the smaller piece.  I love how that turned out and it look like a completely different shape than what the punch normally looks like.

October 2018 Kre8tors Hop: Autumn Color Challenge!

Sunday is here and the weekend is starting to wind down but it's time for another round of the Kre8tors Monthly Blog Hop!

This month we are trying something new with a color and photo inspiration challenge.  This is such a beautiful photo and it's a great photo for pulling inspiration and creativity from!

For my project this month, I found so many things to pull from the inspiration photo from!  I chose to use the Colorful Seasons stamp set and coordinating Seasonal Layers dies.  This set is great for all those year long season projects.  I started with the Gold Foil-Edged Card which comes with a coordinating envelope with gold edging as well.  Pulling the wood look from the photo, I used the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to get the grain look.
The one thing that really stuck out to me in the photo was the rock wall and the color and texture to it.  To mimic that look, I used the Embossing Paste and mixed Soft Suede and Granite Gray reinker ink together and used the Pattern Party Decorative Mask to get that textured look on the wood grain paper.  I used the Braided Linen thread, easily my favorite from the Holiday catalog, to give this fall look the perfect accent.  

Make sure to continue on with our hop to see all the other great projects.  Next up is Jan Musselman showcasing her fall project.  Her blog can be found HERE or by clicking the next button below!
