Hello! I can’t believe that it’s Thursday already. Renee and I both had somewhat productive days at the Stores yesterday. I got my projects for today’s hop done and Renee painted some wine glasses. I had a quite evening, after dinner I came home and watched TV. I have a bit of a toothache and needed to get my mind off of it so I watched two movies. Today I have my Quick Cards Class at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store, that will be fun! And I managed to only use two stamp sets! 😀
For my projects today I’m participating in a blog hop with a bunch of my friends from one of the Facebook groups that I belong to. It’s called One Stamp at a Time Cards and More. If you have arrived here from the talented Lori Mueller’s blog, welcome! This month we have an Oh My, Pumpkin’s and Pie or Fall theme! Not my favorite time of the year but I do love the colors! I have a card and a gift card holder that I made with some Concord & 9th goodness to share with you!
Up first is my card! The base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. My leaves are from the Concord & 9th Lacy Leaf Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed them as follows; Candied Yam with Hero Arts Copper, Herb Garden with Hero Arts Platinum and Dark Molasses with Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. They are then cut out with the Concord & 9th Grateful Leaf Dies and adhered to a piece of Kraft with Dot Runner and 3D Foam Squares. I wrapped some May Arts Natural Twine around the top and tied it in a bow and then adhered it to the card base with E-Z Runner. The greeting is also from the Grateful Leaf Dies cut from a piece of Gold Mirror Card and three pieces of Dark Molasses. I used Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to adhere them to each other and more 3D Foam Squares, trimmed to fit behind, to adhere it to the card. That stamp set has to be one of my all time favorites and I love the leaves embossed in all the different metallic powders!
Next we have my little gift card holder. That Lawn Fawn Pillow Box Lawn Cut is definitely my go to die when I need to make a gift card holder, love it! It’s cut from Kraft and I stamped the small leaves from the Concord & 9th Lacy Leaf Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Cup O Joe Ink. Another piece of Candied Yam is cut out with the Concord & 9th Grateful Leaves Dies and I used the Concord & 9th Sophisticated Script Upper and Lower Case Alphabets and some more Cup O Joe to stamp Thanks on the leaf. A piece of Herb Garden and Dark Molasses are heat embossed with the small leaf in Platinum and Gold and cut out with the Coordinating Die from the Grateful Leaves Dies. I adhered them to the large leaf with Dot Runner. More May Arts Natural Twine wrapped and tied in a bow finishes off my gift card holder. I love the way it coordinates with the card but uses a few different elements!
