Sorry I have not been posting anything on my blog for a bit - been having a bunch of medical tests as has my hubby, and stamping has not been a priority. Plus ... and this won't surprise some of you ... my stamp cave is a mess and I need to clean it up so I feel creative in here again.
The theme for our blog hop this month is Fall or Halloween ... I chose Fall, and here's my card.
Stamp sets: Smarty Pants, Sanded Background and Fall Harvest wheel
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Naturals Ivory
Inks: Basic Black, Chocolate Chip and Old Olive
Accessories: Pinking Hearts Border Punch (hey, you know me and my punches - gotta use at least one on every card if possible!!); Paper Daisies (they come white but I sponged with Old Olive ink); Basic Pearls; Watercolor Pencils; Aqua Painter; Crystal Effects (to add shine to the pumpkins and gourds)
I saw a similar card somewhere - can't remember where, on a blog maybe? and really liked it - I have no idea how I remembered what I wanted to do to make it 'mine', but I did! Guess I'm not as old as I think I am, huh!
Here's a bonus card - one I love to make every year ... It uses the sponge technique on glossy cardstock - the pumpkin is made by punching Pumpkin Pie cardstock with the Large Oval Punch. The layered part is Confetti Cream and Always Artichoke c/s and the Scallop Punch.
Your next stop will be Denise at http://www.denisefoor.blogspot.com/ ... I know you will love her creations ... enjoy the rest of your blog hop!!!
I hope you are having a great weekend - take care and God Bless, Shirley
