Stampers with an Attitude Autumn with an Attitude Blog Hop


Welcome to the November Stampers with an Attitude Focus Autumn with an Attitude Blog Hop.  This month I am following  {Jen Patrick.}  

Our blog hop is a circular hop.  You just click on the link to the next blog at the bottom of this post and go visit the next blog.  If you get lost, I have all of the participating blogs listed at the bottom of my post.  Hope you enjoy seeing what our team has made for you.

This month our Stampers with an Attitude are showcasing Autumn artwork.  

I want to show you what I have been working on.  This is not my design.  It was designed and featured at the Silent Auction at our 2014 Close to My Heart Convention by the very talented Lisa Stenz.  I added the acorns!    


I used the Close to My Heart Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge for this artwork.  The tree is made by welding a branch from one image onto the tree from another image.  I have used Design Space to do this and I am loving the different ways to use our cartridges to make different designs than those shown in the handbook.  The versatility is incredible!

The leaves are in two pieces.  The back "whole" leaf is cut in chocolate.  The overlays are cut in Olive cardstock, Autumn Terracotta cardstock, or the yellow/orange patterned paper from the Pathfinding paper pack. I adhered the leaves with either Liquid Glass or if I wanted some dimension, I used our 3D Foam Tape.

The tree and the sentiment are cut out five times and glued together with Bonding Memories glue.  I ran my brayer over them to make sure that there were no air bubbles between the layers.

The owl, pumpkin and squirrel came from the Pathfinding Complements.

My artwork is displayed in our new Designed Decor Colonial White Frame.  I am making different pieces of artwork to display in my frame and changing them out with the seasons or holidays.

I want to thank you for visiting my blog.  The next very talented artist for you to visit on our blog hop is {Denise Elliott}.
