A very good Sunday to you my friends! I had a nice day yesterday, I did some crafting, ran some errands and straightened up the apartment a bit. Love a productive day. I had dinner with Anthony and Bill, they took me to Friday’s for a belated birthday meal. After that I ran up to Hofstra and picked up Andrew and took him home. They had a carnival/music festival and he was there from 10:45 in the morning. He said they have it every year and he felt he needed to go to it and he had fun so all in all a win!. In other news it’s time for another Creation Station Blog Tour! This time around we are doing a Harvest theme focusing on the For All Things Stamp Set and Fall themed projects. If you are following the tour then you have arrived here from the very talented Deborah Smart’s Blog. I have three projects for you today, two cards and a place card holder. Lets get to them shall we?!
Up first is a sort of one layer card. All of the elements on the background are stamped onto a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock. The leaves, acorns and greeting are all from the For All Things Stamp Set. The leaves are stamped in Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, Mossy Meadow and Blackberry Bliss. I masked off the area for the greeting with a piece of printer paper that I cut out with the Word Bubbles Framelits. The acorns and greeting along with the border from the Project Life Point & Click Photopolymer Stamp Set are all heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I mounted the finished panel to a piece of Brushed Gold Metallic Card Stock and then adhered that to a Very Vanilla card base. I love all of the leaves and the heat embossed acorns and greeting give the card a little extra shine.
My next card is somewhat related to the Dreamcatcher that I did a little while ago. I’m my own worst critic but I love the way this card turned out, exactly as I had pictured it in my little brain! We begin with a piece of Hello Honey Card Stock for the base. My background is a simple piece of Very Vanilla. All of the feathers are from the Four Feathers Stamp Set and are stamped in Tangelo Twist, Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey and are cut out with the Feathers Framelits.
I cut the headband out of a piece of Baked Brown Sugar with the Ovals Collection Framelits. I held the headband in place while I adhered the feathers to the card. Once the feathers were adhered I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the headband. On either side I tucked some strands of Gold Sequin Trim underneath and adhered them in place with Glue Dots. In the middle of the headband is a Gold Basic Metal Button with a piece of Baked Brown Sugar threaded through the holes and on either side are two gold sequins.
My greeting is from the For All Things Stamp Set and is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar. I used the Chalk Talk Framelits to cut it out and before I removed it from the cutting plate I used my Baked Brown Sugar Stampin’ Write Markers to trace inside the Framelit.
I backed it with a piece of Blackberry Bliss, also cut out with the Chalk Talk Framelits and adhered them to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A really fun and I think quite realistic looking headdress!
My last project is a fun place card holder. I used the Curvy Keepsake Box to cut out some Vellum Card Stock. I adhered the two pieces together with some Fast Fuse Adhesive. The image is from the For All Things Stamp Set and is heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. My name plate is created by cutting out some Blackberry Bliss with the Little Letters Thinlits and adhering them to a piece of Tangelo Twist backed with some Hello Honey. One of the feathers from the Four Feathers Stamp Set is stamped in Blackberry Bliss and cut out with the Feathers Framelits and tucked in behind the main panel. On the back is a Mini Clothes Pin to hold it to the ornament. I would have liked to have put a tea light inside but I could’t find any on the house! A neat place card holder that lets you change out the names whenever you want!
So there are my three projects for the Creation Station Blog Tour featuring a Fall theme. I really hope that you enjoyed the projects and are inspired to make some Fall cards and decor. Now continuing on with the tour your next stop is our talented leader Jen Arkfeld. Love all of the cool things that she comes up with! Thank you for coming by to see my projects! I appreciate your visit and hope you have an excellent Sunday! 🙂
