September Pals Blog Hop...


Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for September 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month our projects represent our favorite year end Season. It may be Autumn, Winter, Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas (and maybe even a combination!) We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

Hello all! I am celebrating the Christmas season! I used two of my favorite Christmas stamp sets to create today’s card! Not to mention all of that gorgeous copper! sept blog hop 1 (580x640)

I started by stamping the stars from the Be Jolly By Golly stamp set in versamark and then heat embossing them in copper embossing powder. I repeated this process a second time to get a nice thick emboss. Using a sentiment and the light marks from the Star Of Night set, I stamped the sentiment and then the light marks around the most prominent star. sept blog hop 2 (640x412)

I did a bit of splattering using old olive, elegant eggplant, and crushed curry inks before cutting the card front down to accommodate the strips of copper foil and elegant eggplant cardstock on an old olive base.

I love the simplicity and elegance of this card and hopefully it inspires you to mix and match some of your Christmas stamp sets!

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!

Very pretty! Love your non traditional colors. Excited to use the copper! THanks for sharing!

Peggy Noe

Jane, I've never thought of embossing a second time on top of the first ~ what a great idea. And it looks wonderful on your pretty card. Love the layers on the side too!

Tricia Chuba

Wonderful card and color combination!

Debbie Mageed

Hey, Pal! You got me with the wonderful embossing. Your CAS style here makes the elegance of the paper layers and beautiful sentiment perfect for a holiday card. Love it!!
