On A Roll

I am on a roll. I've blogged three days in a row now. We'll see how long I can keep this up. My goal is usually 3 times a week but I had such a productive day yesterday that I have a few things to share still. This card here I made for technique club. I made it with a real harvest/Fall feel.
Wasn't too sure about this dsp, Spice Cake, when I first saw it but I have to say it has really grown on me. I think that lovely colour Pool Party has something to do with it. I definitely like the patterns and now that I have used them, I can't wait to get at them again.
I made the holes in the diorama using the 2 1/2" circle punch for the outside one and the 1 3/4" circle punch for the inside one.I attempted to make them look like pumpkins by giving them a Soft Suede stem that I ran through my crimper. I used the Vanilla background dsp to make the outside pumpkin look like one of those lovely ornamental pumpkins and the More Mustard dsp fro the inside for a more traditional looking pumpkin. In the background I stamped the line of trees from the set Lovely As A Tree on Glossy White paper. Next I sponged the coordinating colours randomly over the trees and then finished it off by filling in the holes with Soft Suede.
I really struggled to decide what sentiment to put on this card and in the end went with something super simple from Tiny Tags stamped directly on a leaf.
I've entered this card in Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #84 - Fall theme.
So glad you stopped by for a view. See you soon!



What a fabulous idea! I love the layers of cut outs. The Lovely as a Tree is a great image for the diorama. Thanks for joining us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments!



Great idea to make a diorama card! I love the openings are pumpkin shape. And you're right I wasn't too sure about the DSP but I love it now because of the Pool Party color. Beautifully executed! Thanks for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments.


This 3D card is so awesome! It's gonna look great on a mantle somewhere for sure!!! Way to think out of the box. Great use of so many tools, too. Thank you for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
