The Twinery & Rubbernecker Blog Hop event!



Good morning!

It's time for another co-sponsored blog hop event with The Twinery!  This time we're pairing up with Rubbernecker Stamps for a fun one day hop!  If you've arrived on my blog from Jennifer's blog, you're right on track for today's event.  If not, consider starting at the beginning to make sure you don't miss out on any of the eye candy for today.


I was sent the beautiful Fall Trilogy stamp set to work with and enjoyed making a couple of CAS nature inspired cards.  On my first card I used Honeydew and Cappuccino Twines for a simple bow.

Card Details
Stamps: Fall Trilogy (Rubbernecker)
Ink: PaperTrey Ink and memento cocoa marker
Card stock: PTI
Other: honeydew & cappunccino twines; copper nailheads; corner rounder; PTI woodgrain impression plate

My next card is a bit more 'shabby' with some layering and repetitive stamping to create a 'forest' of weeds. After stamping the leaves, I used an distressing impression plate to add just a bit of texture to the background then shaded the edges with a Clearsnap light brown chalk ink.  I used our two brown shades of twine for this card - flax and cappuccino.

The next stop on today's hop is my friend Joan's blog!  As you follow along on today's hop, be sure to leave comments along the way for a great prize package from both Rubbernecker & The Twinery!  The contest ends Friday, June 8 at 11:59 pm.







Happy Hopping!
Jessica

These cards are WONDERFUL!

I really like how you used the embossing with the green and brown card--very earthy, clean, and natural!

The blue card is beautiful, too!

Beautifully done, Jessica!

Loll Thompson said...

Both cards are beautiful! Love the texture from the background embossing on your first card - really sets of the main panel and highlights your leaf sprigs. Love the colors of blue and brown on the second card. Great idea to use two colors of twine on each card!

Heather said...

People would pay a fortune for these cards!! Well done!

That Robert Frost poem is one of my favorites of all time and I love the woodgrain you used for the background! Super job!
