For my design, I was inspired by two of my favorite card designers:
~Sandy Hulsart – Creative Moments with Sandy
Sandy’s work is beyond anything I have ever seen as a stamper. She is an amazing stamper in every area of a designer. I had the pleasure of meeting her last year at the Copic Certification class at CHA. Sandy is someone I look up too and admire!! Please stop by her blog to see why she is such an amazing inspiration to me an SO many!!
~Michelle Zindorf - Freedom in Creating
Michelle’s cards are just BEAUTIFUL!! I always learn something NEW from her work and designs. Please stop by her blog, she includes a tutorial on each of her outstanding cards!
**I want to thank both ladies, you are such an inspiration to me ~ Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us each week!!
As you can see from my design, I used the stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Thoughts & Prayers. The colors consist of Chocolate chip, Kraft, Pumpkin Pie and whisper white. The image was inked FIRST with VersaMark and then inked up with pumpkin pie and chocolate chip. The image was dusted with clear embossing powder and heated. I punched out the top not die twice, once using chocolate chip and once again using pumpkin pie. The pumpkin CS was cut and embossed using the floral stamp from the same set. All of the layers were then sponged for a warm glow and to make everything pop! To finish my design, I added some ribbon from Stampin' Up! and a punched out pumpkin using the Martha Stewart pumpkin punch. Ink was added to the pumpkin and a bow using some linen thread.
We would LOVE it if you played along with us over at Our Creative Corner. There is no time limit on our challenge, so please play along whenever you are able!! If you upload to Splitcoast, please include OCCC in the keywords.
Before I go, I would again like to thank my family & friends for their LOVE & SUPPORT it really means a lot! I would also like to thank those that follow my blog everyday, YOU ARE MY INSPIRATION!!
