Fall Blog Hop

Yeah it's my very first Blog Hop.  Please be patient with me, I'm a newbie at this concept.  So.... hopefully you came here from the Nancy Yankowsi's blog. If not, go back and love on Nancy's creation then come on back here. If you've stumbled up on me and are wondering what is a Blog Hop, go back and start here at, Queen Kat Designs.  For this hop we were asked to make a Fall themed HAND STAMPED card or TAG.


This being my very first blog, I kept the card simple.

The background I first spritzed my favorite mists,  Tattered Angels in Scarlett & Golden Terracota, and Luminarte Autumn Leaf.  Then taking my favorite leaf stamp, I randomly stamped using my VersaMark pad.  After brushing on some Perfect Pearls while the VersaMark was still wet, I distressed the edges with Vintage Photo.
I used my Spellbinders Labels #17 for the panel.  I stamped my sentiment and finished it off w/ my own handwritting.  Using the same leaf stamp and VersaMark I stamped on the smaller of the two labels for a watermark effect.  I also stamped onto some Grunge Paper, that I then cut out and embossed w/ my favorite embossing folder and Cuttlebug.
I assembled my panels and then adhered the entire panel to the left half of the card.  On the inside, I kept it very simple.  Spritzed the inside with glimmer mists and stamped one leaf in the upper right corner w/ the VersaMark and dusting with Perfect Pearls.
Thanks for HOPPING in, please feel free to browse and if I pique your interest, please feel free to "follow" me!  Now head on over to Terri's blog to see her fabulous creation.
