September Blog Hop


Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. Today at Cheery Lynn Designs we are having a blog Hop to Give Thanks to all our Fans by giving you 15% off all our store wide Dies and Supplies from 15th September through until 22nd September. Do check it out HERE.


My card today has an Autumnal feel to it which could easily be adapted for a Thanksgiving card.


I started by cutting out my curved edged Stacker Die in brown card stock. My next layer I wanted to look like shabby strips of wood so I painted a sheet of cardstock with brown paint and applied a layer of crackle paint. Once dry I added white paint to the top to reveal the crackles and sprinkled on Gold Embossing powder, heat setting in place. I then cut into strips, tattering and inking the edges layering onto my card with foam strips.


My sentiment was stamped onto Kraft card and torn around the edges, applying some ink in Autumnal colours.


My Autumn bouquet you will notice my acorns were cut out in Kraft card. I layered the base part twice and coloured with a dark brown Copic Pen, the nut part I added some Distress crackle paint to it.


My swirls were Heat embossed with a mixture of metallic powders. My leaves were cut out in several shades, inking some with Autumnal colours and adding some Distress powders onto them. The berries were coloured with a few shades of Copic Pens adding Glossy Accents onto them.
