Thankful for September Morn Blog Hop

September Morn Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs—this month’s song is “September Morn,” a Neil Diamond classic from the late ’70s. As you can guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with projects that are inspired by the beauty of Autumn—September is when the air becomes crisp and the leaves start to fall. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Falling for Leaves by Stampin' Up!

Lacey leaves, metallic Copper and Merry Merlot set the tone for this September-inspired card.

A Crumb Cake card base is the foundation on which all the layers are built upon. The first layer is a dark wood image from Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. A shimmery layer of Copper Foil embossed with the new Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder adds tons of texture and style to the background.

Cuts from Detailed Leaves dies add more interest and bring back all the colors in the card, but the Merry Merlot & Copper ⅜” Reversible Ribbon really tie the two main colors together while adding even more shine.

Additional touches of copper can also be found in the metallic brad and Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

    I like how you used a strip of the embossed paper, it gives it a nice rich feel without overpowering the card. Cool idea, I think I’ll steal I mean BORROW it! 🙂 Thanks!

    Such a gorgeous collage of leaves with a beautiful mix of colors and shine. I love the use of the Tin Tile Dynamic folder here – gives the perfect texture for your card. I’m so glad you hopped with us today, Shawn. This is wonderful inspiration.
