September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop- Poster Tidings


Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for September 2013- featuring Poster Tidings


 

If you have come here from Michelle's Blog you're on the right path.  If you get lost along the way, you'll find a complete hop list at Helen's Blog!


Subway art is so fun! I have several up in my home for Holidays and family.

For my card, I used Huntington papers and assortment. I cut my own card base at 6x12 with Cashmere cardstock. I made a side fold and added some bronze shimmer trim

The fall sentiment was stamped in Autumn Terra Cotta, Olive and Barn Red ink, in a diagonal pattern. I wish I had some technical tip for you on how to do this, but really I inked the stamp in Autumn Terra Cotta in a diagonal at the top, then used Olive ink at a diagonal at the bottom 2/3, and added Barn Red on the bottom 1/3. 

I edged the stamped image with more bronze shimmer trim. And embellished with a leaf from the Huntington assortment, along with an acorn cut from Art Philosophy.

Pretty card! How did you do part of each word in a different color?

The diagonal coloring is very striking as is the glitter border. Great card.

It looks like you stamped all three and then cut it on the diagonal! How clever!
