CardMaker & Paper Smooches Blog Hop: Autumn Grove Card

Today the ladies on the Cardmaker Magazine blog team are joining together with the talented ladies over at Paper Smooches to share some of their newest fun products for September!


For my card I was given the Autumn Grove stamp set along with their newest birch tree dies to play with.  I thought it would be fun to ink up the background to look like dusk behind the die-cut trees.  To give my tree trunks the glow of moonlight, I cut them from both black (for the outline) and again from white cardstock which I shaded with neutral grey Copic markers.



For my sentiment, I inked up a piece of scratch cardstock with a blend of yellow and orange ink using a foam applicator and then stamped the sentiment over the top afterwards.  The little scarecrow and three pumpkins were colored with Copic markers and fussy cut to finish my scene.  I had so much fun creating this card!  :)

To add some fun to our hop...Paper Smooches is choosing TWO lucky winners to receive a $25 gift code to shop at the PS store.  Winners will be chosen randomly from the participating blogs.  You will have until Sept. 18th at midnight est to comment.  Winners will be announced on the Paper Smooches blog on Sept 19th.


Make sure to stop by and check out all the other amazing creations by the other ladies joining us today.  The lovely Teri Anderson is your next stop in the hop.  :)

Here's a complete list of everyone playing along as well.  :)
