Its Blog Hop day for Stampendous and Core'dinations! If you hopped here from Annette's blog then you are right on track...if not start back at the beginning at the Stampendous blog so you don't miss any of the fun!
I created a layout for you today with some photos my parents just took of my little guy picking out pumpkins last week. I began with the back side (kraft) of a Tim Holtz Distress collection of Core'dinations for my base and stamped a few Fall Tendril images on one corner in Walnut Stain distress ink. My main photo mat is a piece of Red Core'dinations that I simply sanded and then barely inked the edges with the ink.
I added a few strips to the left side of the page: pieces of Orange and Brown Kraft Core from the Tim Holtz Distress collecton pack and a strip of leaves Acorn Hollow pp from Little Yellow Bicycle. The orange I sanded and inked with more Walnut Stain, the Brown I embossed with a leafy branch folder then sanded.
I also cut a couple of circle die cuts and embossed those with a Sizzix embossing folder. Those were sanded and partially inked. I then layered some pieces from the Acorn Hollow Paper flowers kit to these.
And lastly in the bottom corner I added a tag....first stamped on Kraft with the Large Tag stamp, then layered onto sanded Red Kraft Core. I then stamped my Hayride Kiddos stamp on Kraft and colored that with my Spectrum Noir markers.
OK, sorry to be so long winded! Time to move on in the hop:
