Here is post number 3, I hope your still with me:) !
Here’s my second post for tonight, there will be one more! This post is for the Friday Mashup #78. I have been a guest designer the month of September, it was lots of fun. Be sure to check them out! Here is the challenge for this week:
I used Fall and Twine;) Here’s my card, you can click on it to make it larger:
I used a few colored leaf buttons that I got last year from Michaels. Everything else is Stampin’ Up!
I used Early Espresso for the far back, on top of that is Cajun Craze with leaves from French Foliage. I stamped them with my VersaMark ink pad to give a nice soft look. On the left is a pretty piece from Spice Cake DSP. I got it in digital version, love it!
I used my Stampin’ Up! Top Note Die to cut out my image, than added my little buttons. On Very Vanilla, I Stamped another leaf from French Foliage. I used Cajun Craze, Old Olive and More Mustard to highlight the image. I added some Twine (retired) and an Antique Brad. At the bottom I used the Autumn stamp from Season by Season (retired, I just can’t give it up).
It might sound complicated, but it is actually pretty simple:) The hardest part for me is always picking my paper and colors! I get really frustrated:( I actually cut several different colors and try them all! lol I know, I overthink:( lol
Anyway… thanks for coming by again:) If you are stopping by for the first time or rejoining after my first post tonight, I’m glad you’re here:) I have one more post tonight and it’s a Blog Hop for Fred She Said! Be sure to come back, there will be prizes!
I hope you’re ready, I have 3 different posts for you tonight! The first one is Freshly Made #54. Here is the sketch for this week:
Nice and simple today:) There will be no supply list today, I will tell you everything I used:) First, my image is from Fred She Said, this image is called Raking. This is Emma and Rosey, so cute! The image also comes uncolored if you love to color;) I cut it out with Spellbinders-Lacey Ovals.
Everything else is Stampin’ Up! I used as my floral background a paper from Spice Cake, it’s available in digital form from Stampin’ Up! It prints up really nice on my photo project paper-matte, from Target:) I used Soft Suede (brown), Daffodil Delight (yellow), and Pumpkin Pie (yep, orange). I used some SU Bakers Twine-Early Espresso and white, and finally a Pumpkin Pie corduroy brad (retired).
Not too much to remember, it’s a simply made card;)
Thanks for coming by, I’m always glad to have company:) Be sure to stop back for two more new posts!
I made a card for this week, and I did mention I would show you. It’s actually on my other blog. I will put the photo here, but if you would like the instructions and/or supply list, please go here.
Another card for the Friday Mashup this one is #77. I’ve enjoyed being a guest designer this month:) This card was not Simply Made. Well, it wasn’t hard, just very time consuming! Here’s the info for this weeks challenge:
Too bad for me, the info I received as a guest designer didn’t include the “any three colors” part. I used all the colors listed! Also used the theme:) Here is my card and then I’ll tell you about it. You can click on it to make it larger:
For those of you who follow me, you will be shocked again! Not only did I color my apple image, I hand sponged all of my plaid! Yes, I did! I even took photos to show you! Sadly, someone else downloaded my camera and my “how to” photos got lost:( But, I will tell you what I did.
I took some Very Vanilla paper from Stampin’ Up! and used my ink pads and sponges to make “lines”. I started on the right side, I used blue painters tape and pieces of card stock to block off an area to sponge. I worked my way across to the left using light sponging or more aggressive sponging. You can see some lines are darker than others, I just sponged on more color.
I used Stampin’ Up! ink pads by just inking up my sponge. Starting on the right, I used More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, More Mustard. My Early Espresso looks black, but it’s actually a very dark brown. I used Early Espresso to make my lines.
I used Lucky Limeade behind the apple and for the cellophane covering the apple. I used Raspberry Ripple for the far back, background paper, and for the apple. For the stick I used More Mustard, very lightly. For the whole apple image, I used my Aqua Painter and just stamped some ink onto my glass worktop, then picked it up with my Aqua Painter.
I have to repeat, it was not hard, just time consuming! When I have more free time, I think I will try some other plaid designs. I love how it came out! 🙂
I’m sorry, I don’t remember where I bought my apple rubber stamp, I bought it a number of years ago:( If anyone has this stamp (it came unmounted with two other stamps as a set) and can supply the store info, I would appreciate it if you would share the info:)
The leaf gems I bought at Michaels about a year ago, but I saw some recently in the $1.50 bins.
If you have any questions, I would be happy to answer if I can:)
