For the Love of  Fall Harvest Hop!
 
Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design's Alumni Team's bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop.  This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop For the Love of Fall Harvest! Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, check the ODBD blog for full list of links.  One of the post is a hop hot spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $15 ODBD store gift certificate.  So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love!  You have until Wednesday, September, 26th at 6 pm.   Enjoy all the beautiful designs using For the Love of Fall Harvest!

If you got here from beautifully talented Tosh's Blog you are in the right place.  


I have two cards to share with you today both using ODBD Blessings  stamp set.  For the top card I combined the sentiment with some Glitz Yours Truly designer papers.   I added some ink distressing, paper distressing, and finished with an ivory twine topped with coordinating button.  I am using this wonderful sketch from ISPY Sketches ISSC32.  






For my second card, I am using October Afternoon's Woodland Park dp.  I am also using the sketch from Retro Sketches RS#28.  I have to say this card came together so quick and easy I felt like I needed to make a second one.  Which is why I have two.  This sketch is so clean and simple.  A different look for me, but I so love how it turned out.  I really had to control myself not to add any embellies.    I recently purchased Spellbinders Matting Basics A & B.  For this cool cut out frame on my card, I combined one of the A dies with a regular spellbinders square die.  The sentiment is stamped on a piece the A basic cut in ivory.   Then I created the cut out frame with the two dies to pop up over the top.   


As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the hop!  Next up is the fabulously talented Angie's blog.
