Jump Start the Holidays Blog Hop + Giveaway!
Today we are hopping to celebrate all things fall and winter - and to rev up your holiday cardmaking motors in the process! We are also joining Lea Lawson during her month-long Crafty Comeback Party. Lea is an amazing designer, and we are thrilled to support her! Tune into her blog every day this month - she began the party on October 7, and there have been many beautiful cards and fabulous giveaways along the way! To make this party extra fun, we invited along the fabulously talented team at A Blog Named Hero. Lots of inspiration on this hop today. Sally is here to lead off the fun with some lovely fall cards...
I love the many colors of fall. The Color Layering Autumn Trees set is an easy way to make beautiful and colorful trees. I inked up all three clusters of leaves and randomly stamped them all over white cardstock. I did NOT pay attention to any specific color layering order. I used pretty yellows, golds, oranges and reds and a small pop of lime green. After that I inked up the tree trunk with brown and stamped three trunks. I trimmed the card and layered it onto yellow patterned paper, and a red notecard. Finally, I stamped Autumn Blessings in black and added a few gems.
For the second card, I used the Color Layering Thanksgiving set and stamped the THANKS randomly on cream cardstock with reds, oranges, golds and browns. I die cut two leaves from Color Layering Holly Frame Cuts and stamped “happy” and “giving”. Add raffia or ribbon to finish the card.
Now it's time to hop - and it wouldn't be a party without a giveaway! We will be giving away a $25 gift certificate, randomly chosen from all of the comments left at every stop along the blog hop.
