Special Engagement: DeNami Design's October Blog Hop: AUTUMN

It's time for DeNami Design's October Blog Hop! The theme this month is Autumn. Hopefully, you've hopped your way here from Tammy Hobbs' wonderful blog Creating Somewhere Under the Sun. You can also start from the beginning of the Blog Hop at DeNami's blog. See below for the next stop!

For my card, I really wanted to make use of the Cornstalks stamp I recently bought. Living in Indiana, I see A LOT of corn, but none of it is quite as cute as this adorable stamp. I love creating 3D cards that pop out at you, and I wanted to give the impression of rows and rows of corn. I also used several other fantastic DeNami stamps. I even created my own bale of hay! I drew it, cut it out, colored it with Copic markers, and then covered it with Distress Stickles. It really does look like hay!
Supplies:
Stamps: Cornstalks, Hi! (from Everyday Greetings Petit Four set), Puppy (from Playful Puppies Petit Four set), Single Leaf (from Autumn Petit Four set), Two Leaves (from Classic Leaves Petit Four set)

Ink: Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa, Tangelo, Desert Sand, Pear Tart, Bamboo Leaves (Memento)

Paper: Kraft Brown, Orange, White (The Paper Company)

Embellishments: Green Grosgrain Ribbon (3/8" & 5/8" by DeNami Design), Citron Sparklets Glitter (DeNami Design), White Fun Fluff (DeNami Design), Distress Stickles

Other: Copic Markers, Spica Glitter Pens

Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking out my card!


Now it's time to hop on over to the next blog for some simply stunning creations:
