October Blog Hop




DeNami October Blog Hop


Welcome to the DeNami Design Fall Blog Hop!
You have probably arrived from Lani Misner's blog  where she treated you to some fab fall inspiration.

The weather here has been cool and crisp and leaves are turning glorious shades of red and orange.
Perfect inspiration for today's hop with a Fall theme.




My background mat began with a marigold cardstock and lightly brushed on some colors. Then I used DeNami Design's stamp A89 Mini Starlet and five different inks to stamp rows of the image then embossed each with a clear embossing powder. I used die cut leaves as masks to brush on layers of seven different color inks.  I then used the leaves I used as masks to decorate the left side of the card.

List of Ingredients:
stamps: DeNami Designs- Sending You God's Blesssing and Mini Starlet
Leaf dies- Maple Leaf die and embossing folder by Cuttlebug, and Spellbinders assorted leaves (S4-076)
Embossing powder- Ranger clear
card stocks- Hollo's red rust base, marigold mat and red, yellow, green for leaves.
pop dots and foam mounting squares
Inks:
Stampin' Up!- YoYo Yellow, Only Orange, Baroque Burgundy
Ink It Up!- Terra Cotta, Khaki, Copper
Tim Holt- Wild Honey
