Glad to see you've stopped in today!!! Hope everyone had a nice Halloween and lots of Trick R Treaters. I had a fair amount of kids even though it was rainy off and on. At least it wasn't too cold for them.
The next holiday, arriving before we know it, is Thanksgiving. Oh and I can smell a turkey baking right now!!. Mmmmmm!!!
OK, back to the real world for right now. LOL
I want to share a card that I just finished. I used some card stock in my new favorite color, orange. LOL (Seems that I have used quite a lot of orange in my October posts.)
I was looking thru my stamps to see what jumped out at me and the set from Cornish Heritage Farms spoke to me. There are so many stamps in this set it was hard to choose something. But I finally decided to use the medallion image.
I used brown CS and embossed the medallion image with Cayenne Star EP. It has glitter added in the EP powder and it really makes the image glisten. I thought the rosettes made a nice addition to the medallion
I also used some of paper flowers from Prima and I added rhinestones to the centers. The rhinestones were not the right color,(They were a topaz color) so I used a Spectrum Noir alcohol marker to change the color from a yellowish to this reddish orange. They are a perfect match now. The sentiment is also from the CHF set.
The bow..... well I used the Craft-Dee BowZ tool to make this fluffy bow. I use my Craft-Dee BowZ tool for virtually all my bows. Easy to use to get those fabulous looking bows every time. Click here to order one for yourself.
The rich chocolaty brown ribbon, used for this bow, is a fav of mine. The bow is a multi-loop bow and I wrapped the ribbon three times around the pegs to make this fluffy bow. This ribbon has lightly wired edges and that is my favorite type of ribbon. It makes fluffing the loops easy and if you are going to send this to someone, the ribbon can easily be re-fluffed.(hmm, .... is that a word LOL)
I added a beaded hat pin that I made and that finishes the card.
