Falling for Leaves for IRBH

Welcome to the InKing Royalty Blog Hop for August! For today’s card, I used a brand new bundle from the 2018 Holiday Catalog called Falling For Leaves (Falling For Leaves stamp set and Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies.) There are some spectacular images in this bundle. I used one of the simplest ones today. Don’t you just love sneak peeks?

This year’s IRBH themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Dog Days Are Over.” You can hear the song at the bottom of this post. While we still feel the heat from a long, hot summer, August is a perfect time of year to start planning our Fall-themed cards. The projects in our hop will showcase Autumn, back-to-school and warm colors – you might even see a dog or two! We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Granny Apple Green card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Basic Black CS cut to 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″
  • Share What You Love Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 3-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
  • Basic Black CS cut to 2-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card

Stamped with the Falling For Leaves stamp set:

  • leaf image in Memento Black ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS (3 times)
  • sentiment in Memento black ink onto the 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ Whisper White CS layer
  • NOTE: I only used part of the sentiment stamp. I put the stamp on my Stamparatus and colored only the part I wanted to use using a Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker, then stamped it onto the CS.

Tic Tac Toe Dragonfly Dreams for OSAT End of Summer Blog Hop

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop header

It’s time for the OSAT Blog Hop for August! This month we’re doing a Tic Tac Toe challenge. We must choose three items in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) and include all three on our projects. I used the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies to create this card and gift container. The container came with cashews in it. Cashews would make a nice little gift, but since I ate the cashews already (they were honey roasted – how could I not?) I washed out the container and now it’s ready for candies or a small gift. 

I’ve included a Holiday catalog sneak peek. The wood grain paper is from the new Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper, which is part of the new Festive Farmhouse suite. If you can’t wait until September 5 to order from the Holiday catalog, click here to join my team now. You can add the new products to your Starter Kit, and then you can order them on a demonstrator order!

 

Here’s the Tic Tac Toe challenge:

I went with the left column: Ribbon, DSP, Flowers.

First I used Gray Granite 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon on the card. Then I used Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (DSP) on both the card and the container. And I used flowers (Crushed Curry dots) along the bottom of both projects.

The idea is that the critters are flying over a field of yellow flowers with a wooden barn or house in the background. At least that’s what I was going for.

 

Here’s what I made:

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs, and this month’s song is “I Don’t Want to Wait ’til Christmas.” You can play it near the bottom of this post.

Kindness & Compassion for the OSAT Blog Hop

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop header

It’s time for the July OSAT Blog Hop. This month’s theme is Creature Comforts. and we’re featuring animal themed projects. For my projects today, I used the Kindness & Compassion stamp set with the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum to create a thank you card and a box for the bird lover in your life.

There is an accidental technique used on these projects. I colored the vellum on the back with Stampin’ Write Markers and let them dry. Then I used a sponge to spread glue all over the back, and the ink smeared and created a marbled effect. I liked it so much that I repeated it on the second one.

Here’s what I made:
