Hi there and welcome to the September Stampers Dozen Blog Hop! This month we are creating projects featuring new Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog products, but NOT Christmas cards. I have to admit that when I first previewed this catalog several months ago I absolutely fell in love with the First Frost stamp set. I have way too many florals in my collection, but I just had to have this one! I paired it with the new Buffalo Check background stamp - what a versatile stamp!
This is a clean and simple layout and I decided to stamp on crumb cake card stock to change things up a bit. I cut out the two flowers and layered them on top of the foliage image. The flowers were inked up with the new Highland Heather color - it's beautiful! I also used that same ink to stamp the Buffalo Check for the strip of card stock. I love how well the old olive works with this shade of purple. It's really hard to see, but I used my Wink of Stella clear glimmer brush to add "frost" to the flowers and leaves. I tried to capture it with my camera but I think I failed. It is really shimmery in real life, I promise! For embellishment I added a sweet little linen thread bow - perfect for a rustic look.
And for the inside of the card I kept it super simple with a foliage stamp on the left and a larger flower in the corner (stamped off twice to keep it nice and light).
Here is one more view of my card - I really like how these colors work together and hope you do, too. Please continue on the blog hop by using the links below for even more non-Christmas Holiday catalog inspiration.
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!! We are expecting lots of rain and wind here in Central Virginia from Hurricane Florence. Prayers go out to all the North and South Carolina folks who are seeing the greatest impact from the storm. Stay safe everyone!
