August Blog Hop with Sean & Regina
everyone! Thanks for playing along in our August blog hop! The Blog
Hop with Sean & Regina is featuring cards and sentiments celebrating
the fall season this month! After a very hot and humid July, most of us
are looking forward to a cool and colorful fall! When we think of fall,
our minds swirl like we are surrounded by falling leaves and a crisp
cool breeze in the air. Each host/hostess will have a card creation
posted that is his/her representation of what fall means to them.
Stamp Society is our blog hop sponsor! The overall winner will receive
digi’s from our sponsor. Please visit them at http://scrapbookstampsociety.com/index.php?! Also some of our blog hop
host/hostess designers will be offering blog candy as prizes on their
blog sites, so please do not forget to visit his/her blog (and leave a
comment) to be eligible for bonus blog hop prizes!
This project didn’t come out quite like I imagined, and I
couldn’t think of a way to improve it… I like the idea… just not
So I made the Keep Calm from an app called keep calm from my iphone, and sent it to my printer wirelessly :). Then I made the leaves & background by using some spritz inks (that I’ve had in my stash for ever and hadn’t used) and spritzing a piece of paper and then blotting a little with tissue, and then using leaf punches to punch out the leaves. The only problem is it dried a little curvy – next time I would let dry fully before I attached to the card stock and then use lots of adhesive. On the inside I used a strip of that red tape, and attached the punched leaves to it.
Simple card, and I really like the leaves.. but i think the fact it didn’t dry flat bothered me.
