October Paper Crafting Blog Hop

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the October Paper Crafting Blog Hop! Once again I am participating in this blog hop with several fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from the United States, Australia and United Kingdom. You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sue Boerner's blog. Welcome one and all.

This month's theme is Fall or Thanksgiving so I have chosen the Country Home stamp set (AC p. 95). This beautiful floral arrangement showcases the Stampin' Blends. See a full list of the colors below.

The crosshatch effect in the background was created by swiping Balmy Blue ink across the Subtle 3D embossing folder and running it through the die cutting machine twice - once in portrait mode and once in landscape. PS: I did mask the finished milk jug image first.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I sure hope you have enjoyed my card featuring Country Home Stamp Set. Leave a comment below with a trail to find you so I can see your creations. Do not forget to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Sue McDonald.
