Fall Fun Blog Hop!


Hello and welcome to the Fall Fun Blog Hop! A group of online buddies decided the holiday weekend in the US & Canada would be a GREAT time to get inky together, and so we've put together a fall themed blog hop to inspire you as the autumn approaches. As you meet our stampy bloggers today, you may discover that some have goodies for you, so be sure and visit everyone on the list. We have hoppers from all over the globe today, and they are amazing artists.

Thanks for visiting us - grab yourself a nice fall beverage and enjoy!

Here is the full list of our blog hoppers today:


 Here's my card for today:

When I think of fall, I think of leaves.  So instead of having a huge image on my card, I thought I'd go with leaves!  I prepared the the leaves in much the same way I prepared them for this layout.  All the leaves are cut out with the Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Leaves Die and then run through the Tim Holtz Sizzix Cracked Texture Fade.  The cardstock is Core-dinations so I sanded it as much as I dared before a major spritzing of Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mist.  There are also some canvas leaves in there.  Those I did a little differently.  I didn't emboss them, but inked them lightly with SU's Chocolate Chip Ink.  Then I spritzed them with Tattered Angels Suede Glimmer Mist.  While all of the leaves were wet, I encouraged them to curl up like real dried leaves do.  I had to curl them a few times to get them to stay.  I then finished things off with ribbons, thread and a button!

Next on the hop is the extremely talented Dina!

Supplies:
Stamps:  SU - All Holidays
Paper:  Coredinations Cardstock, TAC DP
Ink:  Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Chocolate Chip SU Ink
Accessories:  Embroidery floss, Button, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Pearl, Suede, TAC Ribbon, rhinestones
Tools:  Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Florals Die and Cracked Texture Fade, SU Cutter Kit

Thanks for visiting today!
