October 2019 Kre8tors Blog Hop: Fall


Welcome to the October 2019 Kre8tors Blog Hop! Our theme for this month is Fall. Wow, what a busy week I have had. I got back from Costa Rica on Sunday the 6th and I feel like I have been running ever since. I actually received the Blog Hop info just before I left on vacation, but I knew I would have to wait until my next order came in to complete my Fall projects for both the Hop and my Fall Workshop I have this weekend. The order came in Tuesday evening and I have been busy, busy since then. I hope you like my take on the Gather Together suite of products. You can find a lot of inspiration  for this suite on Pinterest.
My Card Base is Crumb Cake Cardstock cut to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4". I layered a piece of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper on the Card Base (3 3/4" x 5"). The Card Front Mat is Cajun Craze Cardstock (2 13/16" x 4 1/8"). I used the 5th smallest Stitched Rectangle Die to cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock and adhered this to the Cajun Craze Mat. I Stamped the Maple Leaf with Pretty Peacock Ink and the Pumpkins were stamped with Cajun Craze Ink. All of these were die cut with the coordinating Gathered Leaves Dies. I stamped the "Gather Together" sentiment with Merry Merlot Ink. I added some of the Crumb Cake 5/8" ribbon by running some Snail Adhesive down the length of the ribbon and sticking it ti the Layered Card Front. Then wrapped some of the Cajun Craze Linen Thread around that a couple of times and tied a bow. The Card Front is popped up on the Card Base with Dimensionals. I used the Mini Dimensionals to adhere the Maple Leaf and the Pumpkins in place.

I hope you enjoyed your stop at my Blog and will continue on with this Hop by clicking on the next arrow provided below.
