Sending You Hugs, Flowers, and some Foliage...

Another card with the ghosting technique?? Hope your are not getting tired of it... This is the last one for now but some day I do want to try this technique using a stamp. I made this background at Stamp Camp (see last post) but finished the card at home.  

Stamps: Hero Arts (sentiment)
Die: Winnie & Walter
Other: Stencil (Memory Box), Distress Inks, Glitterpaper (Recollection)

Challenges (click on the links for more information and lots of inspiration):

CAS Mix Up October Challenge "Ghosting"
This card might not be CAS enough since it has very little white space and even some sequins. Dear DT feel free to delete it...

Also at Stamp Camp we made this kind of fancy fold card (don't know the exact name) that was pretty easy to do. If you want instructions or a link, let me know, I'll try to find out.
We all used the same flower die cuts in white but look how different our cards came out. And not just because we all used different colored cardstock.

This is my card:

Stamps: Stampin' Up (foliage)
Dies: Stampin' Up (flowers and leaves)

Sending this to a new challenge in town - check it out:

The Flower Challenge #1 "Anything Goes"

We would love you to display our banner !

and to

Happy Little Stampers "Anything Goes with Dies"

As a thank you for scrolling down this far I'll show you some of the foliage in our neighborhood:

It's rare to see bright green with blood red together!

You made it to the end of this post! Congratulations and thank you! Have a wonderful day!

Be well,

Sehr schön, deine Umarmungskarte :))) Die Blumenkarte natürlich auf ;). Ich finde es auch immer wieder erstaunlich, was für unterschiedliche Werke aus den gleichen Materialien entstehen können!
Liebe Grüße
P.S.: Die Laubfärbung ist ein Traum!

I think you will find the card shape is a tri fold. Your colours look pretty together. I heard that there was a new flower challenge starting up so must investigate.Thanks for the link. Hugs Mrs A.

What a pretty ghosted design, Susanne! Love the blue and the sparkly strip! The fancy folded card is so pretty! I'm folding challenged so I can really appreciate multiple folds! Gorgeous foliage too! Our colors aren't very bright this year so I really enjoyed seeing your pretty colors! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

Gorgeous ghosted card Susanne. Love that bright blue background. Great design with the silver glitter diagonal stripe. The folded flower cards are so pretty! Isn't it interesting to see how each crafter adds their own style??!! Wow ... the fall colours in your neighbourhood are really striking. Thanks for sharing ... and thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up! xx

Haha, should I be congratulating people who make it to the end of my mammoth posts? I guess so, huh?! Your ghosting card is so pretty and, no, I'm not tired of them. You've used my fave colors on this beauty! Thank you for sharing the gorgeous fancy-fold cards from Stamp Camp, too! It's amazing how differently they all turned out! Absolutely phenomenal fall color this year ~ thank you for sharing, Susanne! Enjoy your week!! Hugs, Darnell

You can keep posting your ghosted cards, Susanne ... they're fabulous! This is especially lovely ... gorgeous blue hues, that touch of splendid silver shimmer, and the bold die cut all come together to create a real beauty! Your folded card is so fresh and crisp ... and so pretty! Amazing autumn colours in your photo's ... what a wonderful sight! Hugs, Anita :)

I love your beautiful card Susanne. Orange white and green are such a great combination of colours, and I love how bright the white flowers are against the green card - really super pretty card. Thank you so much for joining us at The Flower Challenge, Lisa DT

Very gorgeous cards Susanne ! I had forgotten this technique, thanks for reminding me ! I love this blue tone, when I look your card, I feel like above a swimming pool of a luxurious hotel (that's how I imagine them !). And I love the contrast with this bold black sentiment ! Just amazing ! I also love your Stamp Camp card, it is so fresh and joyful, spring is back ! Your pictures are spectacular with those autumn trees ! Lucky you are to see such a wonder !
Thanks so much for sharing !

You just carry on with the ghosted cards, Susanne; always amazed by the results you achieve! The blues and silver pairing of this one: gorgeous!

Your ghosting creations are so lovely, Susanne. And the foliage is spectacular. Nothing beats a sunny, fall day, eh? And you sure don't find those colors in Germany!
