Stamp Simply Autumn Splendor Blog Hop

Welcome to our August Blog Hop!  The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Design Team and I have all come up with projects for you showcasing the Splendors of Autumn — it’s been very hot and humid here and I do look forward to those cooler, crisper, fresher days of Autumn!

Read to the bottom to find out about the Blog Candy offered.

For my card today showcasing some the of many Splendors of Autumn, I chose to use the rich and lush colors in Kaiser’s 6×6 pad, LUSH.  LOVE this pad.  Here’s my card:

lushsympathy-480-376-wm-notime.jpg

We have to attend a funeral today so I made this card to bring.  Just LOVE these gorgeous autumn colors in the LUSH pad and I know many of you will recognize this JustRite set as being my long time go-to set for sympathy cards.  The set is called Thinking of You and it fits the Large Oval Stamper.

lushsympathy-detail-480-192.jpg

My sentiment is cut with my Petite Oval Nestabilities and layered on a Labels 10 Nesties by Spellbinders, decorated with light green Kaiser Pearls.  My 1″ Stitched Satin ribbon is simply pleated by hand and the pleats are held into place with Scor-TapeVersaFine Onyx Black ink was used.

Just a little peek at the inside.  Quick and easy but dresses it up just enough without a lot of fuss.

All items used to make this card are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and they are all linked above.  The LUSH pad can be purchased in KIT form, including all of the pretties on today’s card.  Any item can be purchased individually as well.
