SNSS Fall Frenzy Blog Hop event!



Hello stamping friends!!  We are so excited about Fall arriving
soon that we've decided to celebrate the season with a 
Fall Frenzy Blog Hop & Virtual Stamp Day!



The Design Divas have created some fabulous eye candy for you featuring our wonderful selection of Fall stamps so we hope you'll hop along with us today!

Be sure not to miss a single stop along the way because we'll be drawing one lucky commenter from a random DT blog to win a $25 credit to the store!!

Here's the list of blog participating in today's hop: 
Jessica Fick (you are here!)

When you're done hopping be sure to join us for a fun day of challenges over in our Splitcoaststampers forum.  We're giving away some fun prizes, too, so don't miss it! We look forward to seeing your fabulous Fall creations!


My first card today was made using the beautiful Harvest Blessings stamp set - I love this cornucopia image included in the set along with the pretty script sentiments.  I stamped the image on cream Neenah card stock and colored with a variety of Copic markers.  I kept the layout very simple since the fruits and veggies are really centerstage.


My next card uses the sweet Sunny Squirrel stamp set - isn't she sweet holding that large sunflower?  Once again, I used Neenah cream card stock and copics to color the image - although you can see that I paper pieced the sunflower.  After I finished colored Sunny, I went over his tail and belly with a white colored pencil a bit to add some texture and shading.  That patterned paper in the background is a bit too busy for my liking right now as I look at it on the computer screen, but in person it's not quite as 'loud' as it looks!  lol!

Next up on the hop today is the amazingly talented Cathy!

I hope you get a chance to spend some time checking out the Virtual Stamp Day challenges that Korin and the other designers have been working.on for us today.  It's always fun to stamp with a theme/challenge in mind, I think!

Happy Hopping and stamping!
Jessica

I loved the paper you used! The background was light enough to make it so cheery even though fall colors tend to be darker. Great job!

Pretty cards Jessica. Your cornucopia image is colored so nicely. Love the rich colors. The doily looks great. Sweet Sunny Squirrel is perfect! The papers and lace embellishments are so pretty!

Love these cards Jessica - the way you have mounted the oval off-centre to the circle is magic, and the wee squirrel is just gorgeous, and you have really made that card sing.
