Blogging Friends Blog Hop - Harvest Moon


Hello and welcome to the September Blogging Friends Blog Hop.  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that love to share fun creative projects with the world.  Each month we do a blog hop on the first Friday of the month in the US and comparative time in the other countries we have members in. With each new hop is a new theme and this month's theme was Harvest Moon.  I used this month's theme and went with things that represent Fall and Harvest time to me. Here's a look at my project.  

 I used the Autumn Greetings Bundle from Stampin' Up!'s August-December Mini Catalog for my project today.  I started out with my card base of Thick Whisper White Cardstock and added a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper in a fun Fall color themed pattern.  The Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper has a ton of different plaid color combinations in it that can be used for different holidays, seasons, or occasions.  

I used my Stampin' Blends to color the large floral image from the Autumn Greetings Stamp Set.  I stamped the image with my Stamparatus in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink with my Stamparatus twice onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  I used the following colors of Stampin' Blends to color with; Mint Macaron, Cherry Cobbler, Mango Melody, Pumpkin, Pie, Cinnamon Cider, Crumb Cake and Cajun Craze.  I used the matching dies to cut it out and popped it up onto a Ornate Frames Die cut with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

My sentiment was placed on a Cinnamon Cider Cardstock strip that I heat embossed my sentiment on with Stampin' Gold Emboss Powder.  I added this to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals and added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to finish it off.
