CCC October Blog Hop

Hi! It’s time for our Collected Crafty Collabs hop for the month of October and it’s also time to dig through my stash and find something I haven’t used for a while 🙂

Theme for this month is Thankful and/or Foil/Shiny element.

For my card I chose to use a stamp set from Wplus9 called “Beautiful Bouquets: Dahlias” that I used probably just once … two years ago (or a bit more?). I stamped and heat embossed the image in Brass embossing powder by WOW! on Bristol smooth paper and I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color. This time I went with a blender pen, just because I rarely use it. The sentiment is from an older Tonic Craft kit and I heat embossed it using the same Brass embossing powder.

For the shiny element on my card I used gold paper from my stash (I bought tons of it long ago but because it’s so thin, I don’t really use it) and also shiny sequins by Tonic Studios.

Here is a quick video tutorial:

You should have came from sweet Karen’s blog and your NEXT stop on the hop is lovely Virginia’s blog.

    Your colouring is gorgeous and I love how you have cut the sentiment!!
    I have lots of papers like that too, where it is really thin so I don’t end up using it…Great idea to use for matting instead!
