Yesterday's Holiday Blog Hop was another "hopping" success. There were 15 blogs loaded with inspiration for fall and Thanksgiving. If you missed the fun, CLICK HERE. Be sure to mark your calendar for the FINAL Christmas/Winter Holiday Hop on December 1.
Continuing the fall theme, I wanted to share two lovely cards (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") from my fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators at Founder's Circle last September.
The first is from Jeanna Cable. She used Autumn Meadows Designer Series Paper (116769) from the Holiday Mini for the card above. I loved how her creasing and sponging gave this a rustic look, perfect for season.
Check out this close up of the leaves! The card stock was textured with the Texturz Plates Kit #4 (114531) and the leaves were given their adorable leafy figures using the Bigz Originals Leaves #2 Die (113439).
Next up for fall is SU demo Winona Semler. I loved the neutral palette and the fresh way she used the Jumbo Brad and folded tag die cut on the left (below). The designer paper along the bottom is Autumn Traditions (115668).
The stamp sets Winona chose are Autumn Splendor (116503, Holiday Mini) and Full of Life (111500, sentiment). She dabbed a bit of Soft Suede ink on the acorns with an Aqua Painter. I'm a huge fan of this "casual" water color look.
I love to play at the PPA! Another Pals Paper Arts challenge arrives tomorrow. Hmmm what has the PPA Design Team drummed up this time? Stay tuned to my Stampin' Pretty blog for my own PPA project and details.
