Autumn Colors Blog Hop - Day 2 (September 2)

If you are here for the Halloween Spooktacular Banner Hop for Special Needs Kids, please click on this LINK. (We would appreciate your visit there, too!) 

Welcome back to Day #2 of the Krazy Crafting Crew's monthly hop. This month's theme is "Autumn Colors."

Yesterday, I showed you a card made with a lovely new designer paper by FarmHouse Paper Company called "Sugar Hill Autumn."  If the paper doesn't get you in the mood for the changing season, only the changing leaves and cooler weather will do it for you!

Today, let me show you another autumn project:

To make this card, I also started with a kraft card base. I stamped the RubberNecker large floral image slightly off-center, using Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad.  I then colored the flowers in the image using Copic markers. The sunflower seed packet image was cut from a piece of the FarmHouse Sugar Hill Autumn paper, distressed and edged in Memento Cocoa ink.  I adhered it using foam tape by XPress It. I made the rolled zinnia after cutting the template for it using Cricut's Art Philosophy cartridge and some Halloween scraps. The leaf is a silk leaf from my flower stash, glued onto the card using Aleene's Turbo Tack glue.  
Please do visit our hop hostess's site to learn more about the blog candy being offered this month. Our hostess for is Katina of "Loving Life's Little Blessings" blog. To continue on the hop full of Autumn's colors, hop on over to: ZENITA's fun blog!
