Autumn With An Attitude ~ Stampers With An Attitude (Blog Hop)

Welcome to the "Autumn With An Attitude" blog hop with members of our Stampers With An Attitude team sharing their creations with an Autumn theme.          

If you have come here from the Inspired By D blog, you are on the right path!  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one, or visit each blog from the list at the end of this post.  


Autumn would not be complete without some turkey decor.  This turkey image from the Perfect Fit-Thanksgiving set was stamped with a mixture of Silver and Gold embossing powders. Recently, @ctmhcorp posted a short video on Instagram showing this technique for a unique heat embossed look, and I thought this was a great opportunity to give it a try.  Small Sponge Daubers were used to add a bit of color to the body and feathers using Barn Red, Flaxen, and Sunset inks.  Freshly Made Sketches (FMS161) was the inspiration for the card design.  To add a bit of texture to the background, a piece of Barn Red cardstock was embossed using the Damask Embossing Folder.  A strip of Gold Polka Dot Washi Tape and some Metallic Baker's Twine were used for a bit of additional shine.              

Now "Hop" on over to CatScrapbooking for more Autumn With An Attitude fun.
