InKing Royalty Blog Hop: Fall Favs

Welcome to InKing Royalty's August Blog Hop!  Today's Blog Hop is filled with projects inspired by some of our favorite Fall-themed products.  What fun!  Stampin' Up!'s catalogs (both the Annual Catalog and soon-to-be-released Holiday Catalog) are filled with so many fun products for the Autumn holidays - and we are excited to share our creations with you today.  After you read my post, I hope you'll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I was completely honored to be asked by the famous Brian King to participate in his InKing Royalty Blog Hop! Since the theme is Fall Favs, I immediately thought of using the new Painted Harvest stamp set (with matching punch) from the new Holiday Catalog available September 1st. The artistic nature of this set had my name written all over it. All products Stampin' Up!

Look how artsy the flowers look! This set has some great images along with a coordinating punch for the little leaf image. 

I used Crushed Curry for the bottom flower image, Cajun Craze (stamped off once) for the second or top flower image and Soft Suede for the flower center. I used the tiny dot stamp to emboss gold dots on the center of each flower. I used Old Olive for the leafy bits. The curved piece on front is Soft Suede cut curvy with a die, but could be done free hand. I embossed it with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder. 

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you'll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop,  Julie DeMatteo over at The Paper PixieThere's lots of inspiration to be found in this group - and you don't want to miss it!
