Project Instructions:
  • First I stamped the hat, cat, frog, cauldron, broom and sentiment in Basic Black ink onto Whisper White card stock.
  • Then I used my Stampin' Blend markers to give them color.
  • I ran a piece of Whisper White card stock through the spider web framelit,
  • I punched out the sentiment with my 1 inch circle punch.  The sentiment layer is Mango Melody card stock and punched out using the 1-1/8 inch scallop circle punch.
  • I used the star die from the Cauldron Bubble Framelits to give the look of a bubbling kettle and added a few sequins.

    For this card I used the stamp set called Country Home.  It screams  fall to me and I love all of the cool sentiments that are included in this stamp set.
    I used the copper foil sheets and copper embossing powder for that added fall bling!  Then filled in the embossed can with a little bit of my Old Olive Dark Stampin' Blend Marker.  The background design series paper comes from the Joyous Noel Design Series Paper pack.  Thanks for stopping by and letting me share the joy of stamping with you.  Here are all of the Stampin' Up! products I used for today's project:

    I used the stamp set called Very Vintage for this project along with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder.  I created the background layer using a piece of Gray Granite card stock and then stamping the lace in Highland Heather ink, then I ran it through the big shot using the layered leaves embossing folder.  Finally, I sponged some Mossy Meadow ink over it to give it that Vintage look.
    This month's theme is Sorry; a card has so much power to heal.  Sending a card of encouragement or apology can be a big step in letting someone know we are thinking of them.
    Thanks so much for visiting my blog today make sure you head over to Kylie's blog to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do an international blog hop.  Here are all of the products I used for this card:
