International Ambassadors Informal Blog Hop

Hi Everybody,

Today is another chance for you to go blog hopping with the International Ambassadors and for our theme this month we have chosen Fall.

 I have created a card that is a million miles away from my style and this card was inspired by Christine Smith from CraftiPotential

I have used the  Fall Foliage  set from Spellbinders to make stamps with craft foam from the dies and this is a set that has been around for quite some time

I have used all the autumn colours of Distress inks to stamp the leaves onto some smooth white stamping card.

I used the border stamp from Clearly Besotted along the left side and I rounded the corner off at the bottom right

This panel has been raised on foam pads to give some dimension to the card.

So why not pop along and see what the other Ambassadors have come up with  and please leave us a comment to let us know that you visited....

Linda Lucas                Australia
Yvonne van de Grijp  Netherlands
Christine Emberson    UK
Christina Griffiths       You are here ..

Have fun 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  4. Morning Christina,
    Lovely card.

  5. Even if you claim this is not your style, the card is lovely!
    Beautiful colours and a fun way to use die as a stamp :))

  6. Hi Christina
    Even out of your comfort zone you still make some pretty cards. This one is very striking
    Love & best wishes

  7. Were you inspired by my card for this? I made one similar to this using the same technique of making your own stamps a little while ago :D Also thank you for subscribing to my YouTube channel!!! :D Best Wishes Christine xxx :D

    1. Yes I was and I have added your blog link so that I can share your fabulous work. I love to watch your videos and look for each new one as you add them to YT

    2. :D :D :D Thank you sooo much!! That's soooo cool to see my name in someone elses blog post!! Thank you :D :D There'll be a new one up later using Pebeo Fantasy paints :D Thank you!!! Christine xxx

  8. Not your usual girly cards and flowers Christina, I bet it was difficult for you to do, but not for me I am afraid, you have done well...luv Ursula xx

  9. Hi Christina,
    Great card. I agree with nattyboots that this would make a great 'man card'. Well done for making such an interesting card. I love the fact that you made stamps from the dies, that's something I've yet to try but want to give it a go...perhaps I'll look out my leaf dies :)

  10. Good Morning Christina- This call may not be your favorite style of card but it is still lovely. Falls colors & leaves are beautiful. I haven't tried using dies for stamps myself but thanks for sharing. Lovely colors for the great fall season.

  11. very different, thank you for showing Dianaxxx

  12. Certainly different Christina. Would not be one I would choose but everyone has their own preferences so I'm sure it will be fine for lots of people. It wouldn't be as much fun creating cards if we all thought the same!!xx

  13. Might be a miles away from your style but when you got talent you got talent!
    Beautiful card.

  14. Hi Christina

    Love the autumn colours you've used, it is an effective piece of art
