Stampin’ Up! First Frost for the Stamp to Share International Design Team Blog Hop

We are back with another Stamp to Share International Design Team Blog Hop with Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world!  This month we’re all making projects with the First Frost stamp set bundle.  Here is my project:

I started by embossing a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with SNAIL and then to a Thick Very Vanilla card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut branches and leaves from Very Vanilla card stock with the Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies and adhered them to the card front with Glue Dots.  I stamped the sentiment from the Country Home photopolymer stamp set in Soft Suede ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock, cut it out with the smaller frame die from the Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies and then adhered it with SNAIL to a larger frame cut with the Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies from Very Vanilla card stock.  I adhered the layered sentiment panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the flower images from the First Frost stamp set in Soft Suede ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock and then cut the images with the Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies.  I adhered the two smaller flowers with Glue Dots and the larger flower with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added three Metallic Pearls to finish the card front.

I stamped the flower images from the First Frost stamp set in Soft Suede ink randomly over a panel of Very Vanilla card stock to finish the inside of the card.

You can find a list of supplies, including card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this post.
