OSAT Blog Hop - Designers Choice

Welcome to the One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop for September - Designers Choice!  I hope you enjoyed the great projects from Amanda. I am excited to have a number of new paper crafters for this month's blog hop!  

At first I was really stumped at what to do for my card and project this month.  I then went into my happy place with stamps, ink, and paper and came up with my creations.  I decided to use one of my new favorite stamp sets from Stampin' Up! - Vintage Leaves!  

The card started with making the leaves.  Very Vanilla is the card base that is embossed in gold.  I used sponge daubers with Tip Top Taupe, Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, and Cherry Cobbler inks to create various Fall leaves.  These are emboss resisted by then wiping ink off with a tissue.  The Crumb Cake card base is stamped with Tip Top Taupe, Crushed Curry, and Cajun Craze to create a leaves background.  The SU 1 1/4" burlap was trimmed to fray on all 4 sides and adhered to the card base with tear & tape adhesive.  The sentiment comes from the For All Things stamp set and is stamped on Very Vanilla in Early Espresso ink. The banner triple punch was used to create the ends on the sentiment piece. The leaves are attached with snail and dimensionals. 

Here is a video to show how I made the leaves.

I wanted to create a coordinating project with the card, so I used more of the leaves.  The leaves were done as mentioned above for the card.  I cut out Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze using the Banner framelits.  The Larger Than Life letters were stamped in Early Espresso ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and also cut out with the Banner framelits.  The Crumb Cake cardstock is popped up on the background colors using dimensionals.  At the top of the project is a book ring that you can find at any office or big box store.  I folded over a bit of the burlap and then hot glued it on the back to create a clean look at top and bottom of the project.  The layered banner pieces and leaves are all glued to the burlap with hot glue.

Here's a detailed look at the banner and leaf.

I hope you have enjoyed my card and project as I look forward to the coming of Fall!  Thanks for stopping by and check out the next blog in our hop, Wynne!
