New Blog Hop, New Cards, & Record-Breaking Hot Weather


The Hoppers' August Blog Hop is over, but I thought I'd share the card I had posted.

I chose the real red/pumpkin pie/early espresso combination for my autumn-themed card.  I used the baby-wipe technique where I put drops of the three colors on a moist baby wipe and used that as my stamp pad.  The leaves have all three colors.

Products used:  

Paper:  Whisper White, Early Espresso, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie
Punches:  Large Oval, Small Oval
Stamp Sets:  Lovely as a Tree, Full of Blessings (from the Holiday Catalog)
Tools:  Big Shot
Embossing Folder:  Perfect Polka Dots

I changed one of the sympathy card designs for my upcoming stamp camp.  Since we'll be making two sympathy cards, the second one will be the one pictured below.

I like the simplicity of it and think it'll be an easy card to make in class.

Speaking of stamp camp, we'll also make some Christmas tags.  Below are three that we'll be making in class.  Cute and fun to make.  Does it get any better than that?

This last weekend was hot for the Seattle area.  I saw in today's paper that we broke a temperature record for yesterday.  Today is ten degrees cooler, so it's quite pleasant outside.  I'm sure glad the garbage strike is over.  Trash piling up with record-breaking heat isn't a good combo...

Thanks for stopping by.
