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:
Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and this month we had to try a new technique. Well, if you know me I love taking a 12×12 sheet of cardstock and making four 3″x6″ cards out of that one sheet. After much trial and error…I tried gesso and a stencil and let me tell you I had a very big mess but I did manage a few gessoed dots on the top part of my card without smearing. I did decided to finally try my hand at a easel card and this is what I came up with.
I cut a 6″x6″ cardbase from Calamity Jane Stripe cardstock and the easel I cut a 6″x11″ with folds at 4″, 4″,1″,1″,1″ from brown cardstock.
The sailors digital image is from Eclectic Anthology. I printed on cardstock and fussy cut out. I cut a piece of cream cardstock and distressed the edges and inked and then adhered the sailor image to the top of it. Next I added gauze, twine around the edge of the cream colored cardstock and then adhered to the base. I fussy cut sea life from a sheet of scrapbook paper that is from Paper Studio. I adhered those along with real mini seashells, dew drops and sequins around the edges of the base.
I folded the brown cardstock and adhered to the back of the card.
Next I cut the leftover striped and red cardstock and glued three of the sides to the back to make a pocket. It will be perfect to add a small note and gift card. Now I have a father’s day card finished and need to create one more. 🙂
If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is awesome and enjoy creating!!! 🙂
