Hello crafty friends! It's time for another link party here on the Cropstop blog. Today I'm sharing an autumn window card I created with a floral embellishment. For a mini tutorial on creating the sunflower visit this post from several weeks ago. (This card uses one each of the two smallest sizes.)
To create the background I scored a piece of kraft cardstock every 3/4 of an inch and swiped my walnut stain distress oxide across it. I die cut and distressed the window using the same ink. I also sponged all of the leaves with coordinating colors to add more depth and interest to them.
Supplies and Tools:
- Scoring Board
- Sunflower Stamp Set (Heartfelt Creations)
- Meadowbird Branch Die Set (Memory Box)
- Window Two Die (Spellbinders)
- Fall Folliage (Tim Holtz)
- Frond Punch (Martha Stewart)
- Burlap String
- Sponge Daubers
- Instant Coffee
- Distress Ink in these colors
- Gathered Twigs
- Mustard Seed
- Fossilized Amber
- Spiced Marmalade
- Mowed Lawn
- Distress Oxide (Ranger) in these colors
- Walnut Stain
- Peeled Paint
- Squeezed Lemonade
- Wild Honey
- ATG gun
Now it’s your turn to share the projects you’ve been working on! As always our link party is "Anything Goes" with these few simple rules
- Create ANY new project using a product or two from one of the companies CropStop carries in the store. (It’s ok if you didn’t buy it from us, and also fine if it’s a product we don’t currently have it in stock as long as it’s from one of the companies we carry!)
- Please, no back-linking old projects
- Limit 5 entries per challenge
- Link your project here, link back to this post, and mention the CropStop Challenge in your post.
Optional Twist for November:
Create a project that includes fall leaves and I'll enter your name twice in the random draw.
