Guest Designing for Paper Secrets

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Note: If you've come here looking for my TCM: New Release Blog Hop post, please scroll down.

I'm just thrilled to be here today guest designing with the talented likes of the Paper Secrets Design Team!  I just adore their sketches for cards and layouts!  Anyway, it's been strangely cool, for August, in my neck of the woods, which is making me long for fall and everything that goes with it from pumpkins and apple picking to hay rack rides and hot apple cider.  So, I dove into a couple of my favorite, fall-themed, stamp sets to whip up this little, layered number just for your viewing pleasure.  Enjoy!
I started this card by stamping the Kraft, cardstock, card face, in Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede inks, with the leaf images and ink distressing its edges.
I then anchored both a woodgrain pennant and a piece of multicolored, chevron, patterned paper, near the center of the card face, with white-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  The large leaf was Cameo-cut from a vintage, advertisement, patterned paper; ink distressed; and adhered, in its present position, with foam tape.  I then layered a couple more, color-coordinating, hand-cut, and machine-stitched pennants, horizontally, near the base of the die-cut leaf, before stamping the scarecrow, in Soft Suede, Pool Party, and Daffodil Delight inks, on its individual, Oatmeal, cardstock die-cuts.
It was then adhered, with foam tape, in the center of the die-cut leaf and grounded with the stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a vellum, banner die cut, "Autumn BLESSINGS" sentiment.
The sentiment's left end was anchored with a stamped, in Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Chocolate Chip inks, on Oatmeal cardstock and hand cut pumpkin, as well as a white, seam binding ribbon, double bow, whose center was embellished with a large pearl.
And here's the August 21st Card Sketch to get you off and rolling in the right direction.
Please be sure to stop by the challenge link above to see how the Design Team interpreted this fabulous sketch, as well as to get all your challenge details.  Thanks ever so much to Kristi and the entire Paper Secrets Design Team for having me this week and to you all for peeking in!  Have a wonderfully blessed Wednesday, friends!
