Now, on to today's hop. You should have come from the so talented Amy Tsuruta, and you will find the complete hop list for today below. For my card today, I used the SO beautiful Hello Fall stamps and Honey Cuts.
I'll keep my description brief as I know you need to keep hopping! For all of the leaves and stems I used my MISTI. I placed them onto the door and used finger daubers to add various Distress Oxide Inks to the stamps. I used these Oxides: Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber, Aged Mahogany, Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive, Forest Moss, and Vintage Photo. I lightly misted them with water and stamped them onto Bristol Smooth card stock. When they were totally dry, I stamped the stems/leaf veins in Versamark, added gold embossing powder and heat set them. I also gold heat embossed the sentiment from this set and cut it with the coordinating Honey Cut.
"When I count my blessings, I count you twice"! Y'all this sentiment is one that I will use many times, on the card front, and also perfect for the inside sentiment!
I love every product in the Autumn Afternoon release!! Do you have a favorite?
