Welcome to my very first blog entry for Laura's Loft's blog hop! The theme this month is Halloween or Fall (Autumn for my English readers!). There are some wonderful prizes to be won, and don't forget to check out Laura's fabulous shop too! We are very lucky to have a great Design Team and several Guest bloggers for you to check out.
I am featuring some wonderful stamps this month, Heidi Swapp's Woodgrain and Altenew's Hennah Elements sets, both available from Laura's shop.
Cut some leaves out of pale yellow card stock. You could use dies, or a Silhouette or Cricut machine. Blend the edges of all the leaves with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Then randomly over blend using Wild Honey, Festive Berries, Vintage Photo and Peeled Paint. You don't have to put every ink on every leaf. Spritz with water to get a little blending and some white spots. Let dry. Spritz again then stamp the leaves with stamps from the Hennah Elements set to get designs on them. Crumple and let dry, then flatten out. I liked the effect of the ink bleeding, but if you prefer, stamp dry to get a crisper look, then just bend the leaves. Work out a pleasing arrangement before adhering to your card. (I used Aleene's clear glue).
And as if that isn't generous enough, there is a coupon you can use too! You can get $10 off a $75 purchase with the code $10TREAT. (valid till Nov 8th)
