pti's august blog hop

Hello! I'm so happy to have a new post to share! I took a little break from blogging this summer... Many thanks to those who continued to check in on me here even though I didn't have anything new to share!

Enough about that -- on to the card details! For the autumn theme for this blog hop, I chose to focus on autumnal colors.

I created the flower stems by curving a Faux Ribbon component into a gentle arc before sticking it onto the acrylic block and stamping. The flower stems and leaves are stamped on kraft and then cut out so they could be threaded through the slot on the die cut tag. The stems were threaded through the slotted end of the tag first, then the ribbon was attached.

After laying everything out on the kraft card base, I decided it looked too plain so I pulled out my canvas background stamp and used versamark ink to give it some subtle texture.

supplies used:
stamps: canvas background (SU!); faux ribbon for the stems, everyday button bits for the leaves, first fruits for the sentiment (PTI)
ink: chocolate chip (SU!); versamark
paper: very vanilla, kraft, chocolate chip, more mustard, really rust (SU!); scarlet jewel (PTI)
other: 3/4" dia. circle punch, 1" dia. circle punch, 1-1/4" dia. circle punch (SU!); ribbon, rhinestones (Michaels); upper crest border punch (Fiskars); ribbon tag die (Spellbinders)
