Good morning to everyone! Welcome to my stop on the Stampin Friends Blog Hop! I am excited to have you here! **squeal** The September theme arrives on the first day of Fall...that's today!...so what better creative topic than anything related to the Fall season. Now, get ready to be WOW'd because I know you are going to love what I have created for this hop.
This may be your first stop on the hop, or you may have hopped over here from Lynn Streifert's blog. Either way, in order to view all of the blog participants sharing their wonderful craftiness, click on the "NEXT" button at the bottom of each post; or, their name found in the blog hop participant list.
Ever since the amazing Solar Eclipse occurred on August 21, 2017, a new creative technique called the "Eclipse" came to life. I couldn't resist but giving this technique a try myself and am so happy that what I envisioned in my head really did develop with cardstock. The Woodland Textured Embossing Folder and the Large Letters Alphabet were a great pairing to work on the Fall-ish type theme, as well as, create a spooky Halloween card.
It is very important that you die cut the alphabet letters first, then put the Whisper White layer along with the new alphabet die cuts into the Woodland Embossing Folder to make sure that dry embossing holds all of the full texture. If you emboss first, then run the alphabet dies through the Big Shot after, the framelits will smoosh the embossed texture around the edges and steal away from the full effect of the Eclipse appearance.
The sentiment comes from the...you guessed it!...the Spooky Cat stamp set. I know, I know, but I love that I'm getting lots of creative time with that set. When you get yourself such a fun stamp set, you want to give it lots of love. :) It was inked with Archival Basic Black ink and clear embossed to add a little shine. It was hard getting the camera to capture the texture of the clear embossing and compliments the new Black Rhinestone Jewels. The black Vintage Crochet Trim is dainty and delicate, and is the perfect touch to finish the card.
Coordinating Spooky Cat Mini Jar
What are the chances that I could find a little jar that has a rubber ring to coordinate with my Spooky Cat Lemon Lime Twist tag? How fun is that, right?!! :o) The tag and sentiment images come from the Spooky Cat stamp set and is popped up onto the Lemon Lime Twist banner die cut was done with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits die.:) I couldn't resist adding some Black Metallic Thread in between the cardstock layers. I love dimension and adding a little bit of whimsical character. Filled the jar with Roasted Pumpkin Spice Peanuts and you've got yourself a super cute gift!
So, tell me, what do you think of my projects? Do you think you will try your crafty hand at creating an Eclipse card? It really is a fun (and extremely easy) technique. I'd love to have you share with me when you do play and create.
