Sew Many Challenges New Release Blog Hop

Happy Friday everyone! What better way to start the day then with a blog hop to see some awesome new images from Sew Many Cards and a chance to win a prize. You have to comment to win, so if you started at Sew Many Challenges and are arriving here from Anita's blog you are on the right track, if not, go to SMC and start at the beginning. So, what's the prize, you ask.... $10 to spend at Simon Says Stamp will be the grand prize, and each DT member gets to choose someone from their comments to win the image they are showcasing...How cool is that! Now, before we continue on to my project you may want to grab a drink and a comfortable chair as I've got a lot of pictures...I think you'll appreciate them though.

Now, I introduce you to......


Kasey the Kangaroo
Isn't Kasey just darling!!! If you've been on the hop you know Kasey is only one of the many adorable images that Sew Many Cards creator, Angela, has come up with. I have showcased Kasey in my first ever pop-up card and scene card all rolled into one. I can't believe I had this vision in my head and it actually turned out, yay! You know what's even cooler, I made most of this with my scraps...Isn't it soo exciting when you find yourself using your scraps!


I said I've got a lot of pictures, so I'll try to keep the banter short. I thought I needed this one to show the whole card.



I think this one shows the dimension a little better...I was having trouble with shadows...to be expected with this type of card, I suppose. I also think the clouds showed up really well in this one and I'm quite proud of them so I wanted you to have a good view of them. I made the could myself on blue watercolor DP. I used a little puffy ball with some white ink to shape them. I let them dry a little bit then added a few accent spots and sprinkled(a little bit in between my fingers) with a winter embossing powder that had silver in it, and embossed.



You have finally reached the end and here is the card all folded up. I thought everyone might be curious to know how to give someone one of these cards...I know I was, lol. I didn't use any sort of tutorial on this so I came up with the outside on my own as well, so, I don't know how anybody else does it.

It's also Freebie Friday at SMC and challenge day. Would you like to win the entire line of new releases from Sew Many Cards AND a special discount code to use for the entire month of May for 45% off all your digital stamp purchases??Then join us for an easy peasy challenge!! All you'll need to do is submit a project using a Sew Many Cards image!! ANYTHING GOES...BUT it has to contain a Sew Many Cards image on it!!

Well, that's it for me, your next stop is Carol and don't forget to comment to win. I hope you have enjoyed my image and my card. Happy hopping, and good luck!

Have a great day!

~Autumn

Love the pop-up Autumn!! What a cute image... we took the kids for a drive through the bush (forrest?) and saw heaps of roos last week. Big ones lounging in the sun, small ones trying to commit suicide as they darted in front of the vehicle and even some Mummy's with bubbas in their pouches like this cutie!!
Your scene is fabulous! Love the flowers and the sky is great!! ♥

Deonna said...
