Good morning everyone! Hope y'alls week is going well!
It's already all most Friday! Whoop whoop! I should
be getting a new box of CTMH goodies tomorrow!
Until then I decided to pull out the Huntington paper pack
and make a few cards! For this first card I used the
card on page 44 of the new Idea Book as my inspiration.
I made a 4.5 x 6.25 card base out of Barn Red cardstock
that comes with the Huntington Paper Pack. I then cut a smaller
rectangle out of Goldrush cardstock. I inked the edges of both
the Red Barn and Goldrush with their matching inks.
I stamped the cornstalk and small pumpkin from
brown embossing powder I got from Hobby Lobby. I cut
out the pumpkin and distressed and inked the edges of the cornstalk
image in Barn Red ink. I then used my Red Barn, Goldrush and Olive inks
along with some water brushes (also from HL) to paint my stamped images.
I will be doing a YouTube tutorial this weekend about painting
with ink pads so be watching for that!
For the stitched part, on a piece of white computer paper
I drew the image I wanted then using my needle I poked holes
along the image about ever 1/8th of an inch. I then used a
small piece of tape to tape my template to my B&T piece
and then poked through the holes in my computer paper onto
my B&T paper. I used some embroidering floss I had that was close to
the Goldrush color and then just stitched the image!
I stamped the Blessed in Barn Red and also used
a strip of Bronze Shimmer Trim to finish off the outside of this card!
The inside stamp is from the set Always Grateful.
