Kim here from @cardmakingblonde here today wishing you Fall Blessings!
Here in Florida we have seen temps dipping into the 80’s so Fall has officially arrived! We joke about it but if you are either from here or if you’ve lived here long enough there really is a change in the feel and smell of the air that tells you Fall is here. I still wish we had the changing leaves but alas, you can’t have it all right?
I’m thrilled to be sharing a sneak peek from SFL’s Flavor of the Month September 2020 card kit: Orchards and Patches. Using the stencil from the Banana Split ingredients and elements out of collection two: Apple Orchard Pickin’ I created the card below.
Here’s the run down on how this card came together:
-stenciled the apples with distress oxide inks using a sponge dauber for the apple and cotton swabs for the leaf and twig
-held stencil and paper together with Wendy Vecchi MAKE ART Stay-tion-All-In-One Magnetic Surface (I LOVE this tool and find myself using stencils more frequently now that I have it.)
-used Bristol Smooth paper which the Distress Oxide inks go on like a dream
-created a background with the apples then used an aqua shimmer pen by Nuvo to add some glimmer
-the sentiment in the center is from the paper in the Apple Orchard Pickin’ collection, there is a sheet of cut aparts
-popped that sentiment up with foam adhesive
-used the twine also included in the collection to wrap around the card and add a bow before gluing the panel down to the card base
There will be one more sneak peek tomorrow and then the BLOG HOP! I look forward to seeing what the rest of the design team came up with. You have two ways to get your Flavor of the Month card kit.
- Sign up for a subscription now so you don’t have to worry about a sell out
- Wait for the kit to reveal at midnight EST on September 26th and grab a one time purchase (this one is a little risky but no judgement if you enjoy living on the edge a little ha, ha!)
Thank you so much for joining me here on the blog today for this sneak peek! I look forward to seeing you at the hop and hope you are enjoying a nice Fall so far!
Just keep creating,
