Now, on to the projects I made for today's hop. First up is Thankful, done using Concord & 9th Lace Leaf Stamp Set. I stamped my background panel using Ranger's Wendy Vecchi line of inks picking the colours of fall. I then die cut the panel with the Scalloped Stitch Trimmings die using the inside part without the trim, then attached it to my Bazzill pink card base.
I cut a piece of white vellum using a smaller die from the set, then stamped the sentiment using the Vermilion ink from the ink sets, and heat embossed with the clear embossing powder. I then attached the vellum to my card base using vellum tape. 

For my leaf, I made a mixture of Ballerina Pink and Shimmering Pearl embossing powders, adding a few shimmer pieces to the mix. I stamped with the Versamark embossing ink and heat embossed. I then added some of the Vermilion ink shading around the edges of the leaf, and finished with a few drops of Nuvo Jewel drops. 

For my next project I used the My Favorite Things Cross-Stitch Tag to make this Autumn Tree tag.
 I used colours that I already had in my stash, picking out shades of green, blue, rust, orange, red, gold and brown. I used all 6 strands of the floss, as this is a large stitch grid. 
I added thin foam squares under the finished area to elevate the top panel and matted with the orange bazzill cardstock. I then made the tassel from variegated floss.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects. Up next is the amazing Amy. If you have lost your way, following is a list of those in the hop and their links.

  7. Beautiful card and tag! I just love all the different colors of leaves that you have all over your card! I also love that you added a mixture of embossing powders for your top leaf! Just such a lovely finish!

  8. Pretty color combo on your pretty card! Love the leaves and the vellum layer! Pretty tag also! Love the textures and colors!

  9. Beautiful fall color background with the gorgeous, heat-embossed leaf, Kia! I love the way you heat-embossed the leaf with mixed embossing powders. It beautifully shimmers. Using the vellum piece as a backdrop is a great idea.
    The cross-stitched tree tag is so lovely. The orange peeking through the tiny holes is pretty!

  10. I love how the vellum sets off your shimmery leaf from the more colourful background. The cross-stitch tree tag combines two of my favourite crafts and is a reminder to incorporate more cross-stitching on my cards.

  11. I like the card with the vellum panel. I used to be an avid cross-stitcher until papercrafts took over. That tag is sweet.

  12. Great way of combining two of my favourite things, card making and cross stitch, in gorgeous fall colours. Beautiful!
