CardMaker Magazine Fall Blog Hop


Fall is such a wonderful time of year to be the inspiration for crafty projects! I'm so excited to be participating in the CardMaker Magazine Fall Blog Hop, featuring Lil' Inker Designs!

If you are following the hop, you should have arrived from The CardMaker Magazine Blog.

My clean and simple, fall colors inspired card started with a white cardstock base that has been embossed with the Cover-up Die: Stitched Woodgrain. I really enjoy how the stitching in this die is a classic Lil' Inker Designs signature, but also is something that you can't find anywhere else! I then die cut a sentiment flag from Flags & Tags Dies, and stamped a simple sentiment in dark brown ink from the Sketched Flowers Stamp Set. The highlight of the card is a tree made from Lil' Inker Designs new release Leaf Love Die Set (stay tuned for the this product to be released and featured on the Lil' Inker Designs October New Release Blog Hop starting on October 8th!) I die cut one of the leaves from shimmery, copper colored cardstock and then covered the bottom with chocolate cardstock to form the trunk of the tree. I added some oak leaves die cut from the newly revised Acorn Die Set. I finished the card by adhering the sentiment panel and tree with foam adhesive.
As a sponsor of this hop, Lil' Inkers Designs has up for grabs a great gift certificate! Please check out the CardMaker Magazine Blog for full hop details and hop list.

Your next stop on the hop is: Chitra Nair!
