Sparkle N Sprinkle Fall Inspiration Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Fall Inspiration Blog Hop! If you hopped here by way of the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog, then you're on the right track. If you've arrived from somewhere else, you might want to start from the beginning, at the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog,so as not to miss anyone's remarkable cards! (If you need to return to Sparkle N Sprinkle's blog click here ) At least one prize is involved. The more visitors we have, the more prizes will be awarded, so tell your friends! To become eligible for a prize just:
Leave a comment at each designer's blog about her card and make a guess who you think has the Hidden Birthday Prizes


Here are the cards I designed for the blog hop.




Card #1

The panel behind the birds uses paintable wallpaper. I alcohol inked that square panel and then used a Versamark pen and applied the ink to those raised areas surrounding that panel, and applied Bronze Rose embossing powder and heat set. The chickadees were stamped in brown dye ink and colored with Copic markers and mounted over the wallpaper. I made those panels behind the dark brown cardstock using Color Wash on watercolor paper, and just mounted them on the front of the 6X6 card.





Card #2

Look at this scarecrow, out in the field in the moonlit night. That's a full moon rising in the background. I love this scarecrow, he has so much character doesn't he?? I masked off the moon, then I brayered the blue night sky and the green field onto the cardstock. Next I added Glisten embossing powder to the moon to set it off more.  I added the fence and the glistened pumpkins using dimensional foam. Lastly added that cute scarecrow and the sentiment and here is your 2nd card.

Thanks for stopping by today and please leave a comment  and make a guess to be entered in the contest.

Barb, love the warmth of the bird card. You've captured the golden feeling of Fall!

Sandy said...

Barb, your cards are beautiful. I especially love the bird card--colors are really fall! Great job.

Donna said...

Wow! That fence is the cutest especially because it's not perfectly straight. The wall paper background with AIs is a great idea! Lovely cards!

Julie- justwritedesigns said...

Both of these are wonderful, Barbara! Love the chickadees (one of my fave images) and the scarecrow in the moonlight is perfect for fall.

Teressa Thompson said...

Great way to use wallpaper samples! I'm putting all my eggs into one basket - Donna's got the birthday prizes!

carrie said...

Great cards! I love the first card, it is stunning and really catches the feeling of fall colors in your layers. I think the prize is in Sandy's basket.

Barbara thanks for all the inspiration in your beautiful cards! Fun that you incorporated the tile! And yes, I haven't pulled out color wash in a while...great reminder. I think you may be stashing the birthday prize basket too.

I really like the chickadees on your first card. On your second card the brayered sky & field & the glistened pumpkins are especially nice.

I forgot to say that I thought the prize was in your basket, Barbara.
