This month's theme was Fall.  This is my favorite season because of the colors.  I couldn't wait to get started.
First, I would like to share my card I created.
 I created this card using the Harvest Wreath and Autumn Days stamp sets.  The leaves were stamped with Clear Pigment Ink and then colored with Pan Pastels.  The background was created using the words from the Harvest Wreath Stamp set, stamping on the right side of the card with different colors.
I had so much fun created the card, that I decided to create a scrapbook page too.

The leaves on the right hand side of the page, I created using the Gel Press.  I first added Pomegranate Splash ink to the Gel press.  Then I dropped a few drops of Citrus Cooler and Dark Roast.  I then used the Brayer to "spread" the colors around.  I then pulled a print.  I used this print to stamp the leaves and cut them out.
I am in love with this scrapbook page.  I am so in love that I will be teaching a class on this layout in November.

Stamps: Harvest Wreath, Autumn Days
Paper: Tangerine Fusion Cardstock, Hazelnut Blend Cardstock, Fall Fest Pattern Paper, Butter Cream Cardstock, Oatmeal Cookie Cardstock

Too Cute!

Hello Crafty Friends,
Today I want to share a card I created using the Project Me Collection.

I don't have the Film Capture Die, so I created my own using the Film Frame die. I die cut one side of the Whip Cream Cardstock block and then die cut the other side. 
I used Color Burst pencils to color the girl. I then used Baby Oil and a blending stump to get her hair to look more smooth and less pencil looking

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Too Cute!
Paper: Whip Cream Cardstock, Black Licorice Cardstock,  Project Me Prints
Silk: Silver, Sparkle
Dies: Film Frame
Accessories: Rhinestones, Black Licorice Twine
Colored with Color Burst Pencils

Miss You

Hello Crafty Friends,
Today I want to share a card I created using the daisy flower from the Mystic Romance Collection.

To make the background I used the Pool Play Pan Pastel from the Party Pop PanPastel set. I then splattered some Sparkle silk to the card. 

I used Lavender Fusion ink to ink up the whole flower and then I went back and added bits of Grape Fusion to areas of the flower, to add texture. 

To finish the card, I added Journey Glaze to the flower and leaves and dusted them with Journey Sparkle Dust.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: Grape Fusion Cardstock, Whip Cream Cardstock
PanPastels: Party Pop

Bringing Paper to Life

Image may contain: text

Welcome to the Journey Blog Hoppers Hop! We will be Bringing Paper to Life with our 2017-2018 Idea Book & Catalog Release Theme!  I'm so happy you're hoppin' along.  
If you have arrived here from Sharon’s blog, you're on the right track.  If not, that's ok too! Just continue the hop and you'll come full circle! 

I absolutely love the details on our NEW Mystic Romance Collection.  Richard tried to duplicate the details of an embroidered image.  I think he hit the ball out of the park with this one.
I couldn't wait to play with this paper.  Here is the card I created:

To create this card, I used the Beach Towel Embossing Folder to add texture to the piece of Cranberry Bliss Cardstock I used as the base for my card.  I then added a strip of the black pattern paper from the Mystic Romance Prints down the middle and Silver Sparkle tape along the sides.  I splattered a little bit of Silver Silk on the base of the card for more texture.

For the flowers, I stamped the Embroidered Rose with Cranberry Bliss ink and Fresh Forest ink on Whip Cream Cardstock.  There is a die to match, so I die cut each of the pieces out using the Embroidered Rose Die.

Richard even included a sentiment stamp set , "Embroidered Greetings" which also has the detail of stitching.  I stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice ink on Whip Cream Cardstock and detail cut it out.  I added this to the top of a Journey Circle cut from Whip Cream Cardstock.

I had so much fun creating this card, I decided to create a two page spread for my Journey Album.


Thank you from stopping by today.  Please be sure to head over to Heather’s blog next.
