Autumn Air - Oct. Stamp of the Month Blog Hop


Welcome to Fall (yay!) and to this month's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop where we are featuring the set called "Autumn Air".

Check out these awesome sayings and images that are incorporated in all artwork shared in this hop. 

Did you know you can get it for $5 with a qualifying $50 purchase?! Valued at $18.95, that's a steal! You'll want to be sure to take advantage of the special (available this month only). 

If you are coming from Michelle's Blog, you are on the right track. You can find a complete list of participants here.


Curious what that gorgeous pattern is, on the Sangria cardstock, on the upper portion of the card? I used the Stitched Circles Embossing Folder, and my Cuttlebug, to create that design. And, because our cardstock has a white core, it lends itself to distressing (with a sand paper block) to create this beautiful design. Do you love it like I do?
The sentiment was embossed, on Sapphire cardstock, with Gold Embossing Powder. I love the way it looks in coordination with the theme and other colors on the card.

For the leaves and acorn, I used Espresso ink and stamped on the respective cardstock colors (Julep, Paprika, Sangria and Kraft) while then adding a bit of shading with Watercolor Pencils (but did not add water).


And last, but not least... This is the first time I used the Sangria Ribbon. It is a truly beautiful color. I see the need to add another roll to my next order. You'll want to be sure you get it in your hands, too. Trust me!

Thank you very much for stopping by. Head over to Catherine's Blog to view her fabulous artwork and then continue around the Hop for additional inspiration.

Here's wishing you the best of Octobers!
