Happy Fall Y’all!!! The Autumn season officially started on September 23rd according to the calendar.

This is the season where we can enjoy the beautiful colorful leaves and cooler, crisp air. And it is also the time for…

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

The Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop starts from today, Friday, September 25 through Friday, October 2, 2015.

Since it is Fall Bloghop, so theme of your project(s) must be Fall. You can create any project(s) that has coffee, or tea, and/or cocoa on it.

You need to link up your NEW project(s) using the Inlinkz button at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog from 6 am Pacific Time (9 am EST) on Friday, September 25 through Friday, October 2nd at 11:59 pm Pacific Time (2:59 am EST on 10/3/2015).

There are no limits to the number of entries, the more the merrier. Please remember to keep the projects with a FALL theme and NO BACKLINKING, please! Your project (s) has to be a new.

Kicking off the first day of this Fall blog hop, here’s my card:

I heat-embossed the leaves with Gold and then color them using the new color ink pads from Close To My Heart: Saffron and Pemogranate. Starting with the Pemogranate at the bottom and them the Saffron from the top of the leaves, you can see when they mix in the middle it turns into a beautiful orange. I fussy cut them and added them on the card using glue dots. Glue dots give extra dimension but not too thick like 3D foam tape, also they quick and stronger than using adhesive runner on that woodgrain embossed background.


I am giving away a pack of prize from Close To My Heart

  24. First of all, I love your gold embossed leaves and the coloring..those colors are fantastic mixed together! I am all about gold lately… Secondly, my favorite thing to do in autumn is to drive around and take pics of the beautiful foliage.
