Welcome to the Crafty Card Gallery Fall themed blog hop!
We have 9 very talented card makers who have each designed a fall themed card.
If you’ve never done a hop before, it’s a group of bloggers that have joined together. You hop from blog to blog using the links in each post.
Be sure to visit each of the blogs and comment on the posts. Some of the bloggers are giving away prizes – so you want to be sure to comment so you can be eligible to win.
Be sure to read the full post because I’ll be doing a giveaway!
You’re at the first stop!
I’ve been sort of slacking in the blogging department (don’t know if any of you can relate to that)… and I wanted to have a blog hop to celebrate the fact that Crafty Card Gallery App has been in the apple store for 5 years! I can’t believe it’s been that long – and it’s been a great time! I’ve met a ton of cool people and had a lot of great opportunities from the App. If you don’t know about the app – it’s an iPhone app that has cards so you can look for ideas. You can find designers and read their blogs…
I also wanted to celebrate the app being featured in Craft Industry Today
. Sort of cool to have your app in the magazine for the Craft & Hobby Association! I’ve been a member of CHA for a few years now and it’s been a great opportunity!
So I know you’re here for the card….
I recently went to scrapbook expo and took a watercolor class and bought these Zig Kuretake Clean Color Pens
(note – much better price on Amazon than at scrapbook expo)… and I also bought a ton of other fun stuff – including some super cute stamps from Stamps by Judith & Heather
. This was my first time seeing their stamps and I loved a ton of them (so of course I bought them)!
So here’s my first attempt at using the watercolor pens & the new stamps:
Twine on the leaf that was a Lawn Fawn Die Cut – and the letters are Lawn Fawn as well….
Wink of stella on the leaves
And the leaf in the corner is on an Action Wobble…. Those are always fun!
I will be selecting 2 winners at random on Monday night from the comments on my blog.
Prize #1 – Free copy of Crafty Card Gallery App
Prize #2 – envelope with some mini stamps
Thanks for joining us in the hop!
Here’s the full list in case you get lost:
Happy day all!
Sue B here to share my take on this month’s challenge. I have to say that it is good to be back. This month the challenge was if you have nail polish on your fingers or toes – do a card with that color in it… If you don’t have any on now – use Blue, Pink (my current color) or something with sparkles in it….. on your card… Well, since I don’t have nail polish on I went with option B but used Blue, Pink and Sparkles! I recently attended the Scrapbook Expo in Somerset, NJ and purchased my supplies just for this project. Here is my card:
Let me tell you that this was so easy! Krazy Kreations was at the Expo showing how to make your own glitter paper and how to color on it. Well I was a chicken and bought the glitter paper and the Outline Stickers (these are by Elizabeth Designs). I mounted the outline stickers on the white glitter paper, got out my markers and went to down. I like my little blue bird of happiness. As soon as I took this picture, I filled out the card for the parents of my son’s girlfriend. They are so kind to our son, I wanted them to know we appreciate it.
Thanks to Jenn at Crafty Card Gallery, Krazy Kreations and Elizabeth Designs for the inspiration and tools to make this card. Until next time…..
