ICS Blog Hop Introducing the Holiday Catalog



Hello and welcome to September's Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop introducing the Holiday Catalog!  I have to tell you this year's Holiday Catalog is full of all kinds of wonderful goodies that have made it to my "Must Have" List!   If you've already been hopping, you should have landed here from Claudia Perry's blog.  Claudia is a hard act to follow but I'll do my best! :)



For my card I decided to go with a Thanksgiving/Fall theme with the beautiful Lighthearted Leaves Stamp Set.  This set coordinates with the Leaflet Framelit Dies and has just so many possibilities.


I started with an A2 card base of Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  My top layer was Crumb Cake cardstock and two of the leaf images from Lighthearted Leaves were stamped tone on tone with Crumb Cake Ink.  I also used the Crumb Cake Ink to sponge the edges of that layer.  I heat embossed in White on the Shimmery White Cardstock the same two leaves and used my sponge daubers to apply the various shades of ink on them.  The inks I used were Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Hello Honey, and Pumpkin Pie.  After I had sponged the leaves, I used a paper towel to wipe off any ink film from the white embossing.  I then cut the embossed and sponged leaves out using the Leaflet Framelits and used dimensionals to adhere them onto my card.  The sentiment was stamped used Cajun Craze ink onto watercolor paper that had a watercolor wash of some of the leaf colors.  I used my Lots of Labels Framelit Dies to cut out the sentiment.  I added two Cajun Craze candy dots, one of each side of the label.

I also added a bit of Gold Thread under the leaves and splattered some Gold glitter on to the background as well.

I hope you've enjoyed my card and hop on over to the next stop to check out what the super talented Anna has for you!  Just click the next button and you'll be at her blog!
