OUR BLOG HOP SPONSOR!
Even though I'm in South Florida where we really don't have a change of seasons, I still think of browns and oranges when I think of fall; must be from my childhood memories of autumn in New York. As an avid fan of all things Gina K, and StampTV, I used the following for my cards: The butterfly stamp and sentiment from Nature's Greetings StampTV Kit, GKD Pure Luxury cardstock in Kraft, Sweet Mango, Tan Leather and Chocolate Brown. DCWV champagne pearl CS embossed with Cuttlebug, Memento Inks in Tangelo and Rich Cocoa. Recollections Fine Embossing Powder in white and black. Copper brads, and Pop dots. Here's another slightly different version:
I made these cards using two of my favorite techniques. The butterfly was stamped with Versamark and then heat embossed with the white & black EP. I then "painted" with bleach within the wings to create a nice effect on the paper. To tone down the shiny cardstock, I sponged some ink to the raised surface. Finishing touches using some copper brads in the corners and pop dots to raise the focal images.
The rules are simple:
- Start at Sean's blog first, and leave a comment (and become a follower to enter a chance to win the grand prize from Scrapbook Stamp Society)!
- Go down the list of blogs visiting all of them (see below). Leave comments on their blog pages to be eligible for bonus blog candy from select blog hosts. The blog hop host/hostee offering bonus blog candy will indicate that he/she has a bonus blog candy prize so read their blog post carefully. Each blog will have the name and blog address for the next host/hostess in line for the blog hop.
- At the end of the hop, a random winner will be chosen for the Blog Hop Grand Prize from our sponsor and select blog hop hosts for Bonus Blog Candy. The deadline for leaving comments is Monday, August 20, 2012 at 8pm CST. Winners of the Grand Prize and bonus Blog Candy will be announced Tuesday, August 21, 2012.
