I hope you enjoy this colorful blog hop. If you came from the very talented (and our group blog hop organizer), Carolina's blog, then you're on the right track. If you didn't, you're invited to start at the beginning of the hop at StampTV and get a good eye-full of all of the gorgeous creations of all the talented ladies, and the entire hop in sequence.
I made two cards for this hop using the stamps from "Farm Life" (designed by Theresa Momber) for both.
For my first card I was going for a CAS (clean and simple) design with this card. I wanted to make a masculine card without a lot of layers or embellishments (no frills), so here's what I came up with
CS: Chocolate Kiss, Pumpkin Spice, Ivory and Red Hot.
Stamp Sets: "Farm Life" and (sentiment) "Autumn Beauty" both designed by Theresa Momber
Copics were used to color the image and I used Distress Ink "Rusty Hinge" to lightly sponge around the image. Button is from GKD Button Jars.
For the second card, after stamping the wheat image on the distressed background, I decided to leave it without a sentiment as it could really have any one of many sentiments. So, until I give it away, it will remain silent.
CS: Kraft, Chocolate Kiss, Sweet Mango, Cranberry Tart, Pumpkin Spice and Ivory.
The Sweet Mango layer is embossed with Cuttlebug Embossing Folder "Victoria" and then sponged the surface and the edges with Distress Ink "Spiced Marmalade".
The background was made with Distress Inks, "Walnut Stain", "Spiced Marmalade" and "Barn Door" on an Ivory panel cut with rectangle Nestabilities then layered on Pumpkin Spice and again on Cranberry Tart CS. And if you'd like to see Tim Holtz demonstrate this technique here's a link to a video for you
Stamps: The wheat stamp from "Farm Life" designed by Theresa Momber stamped with Vivid "Coffee Bean".
All products I used for both cards can be purchased at StampTV.
