Welcome to our FOURTH Fred She Said blog hop!!! If you just happened to drop by my blog and you are not aware of this wonderful event taking place, please go back to the Fred She Said blog and start your hop!
No Special Code words this time...This time, you must comment on everyone's blog in the hop, then follow the instructions at the end of the blog hop, at the Challenge blog, to make your entry and your name will go in for a draw for a $20 Gift Certificate for the Fred She Said Store!
Here are my Fred She Said creations for this Hop. Something "Old" and something "New"
For the "Old", I have used the Fred's Flowersv3 - Blue Blossoms Kit. I used Photoshop to make the outside "frame" really dimensional without having to do any actual physical layering with the paper. The Blue Round Frame is cut with the Nestabilites dies and the "lace" (both green and black) is cut using the Martha Stewart edging punch, trimming it to curve around the outside of the circle for the black and trimming off just the top "rick-rack" for the green. The small white flowers are made with a small punch that I have and small pearls. I added a few bits of "fern" punched with another Martha Stewart punch under the flowers and some 1/2 pearls to the flowers to finish them.
And, for a bit of a "play" on designs here.....For the "New" card, I used an image that is just being released today called The Old Truck. I have used the Rusty Red version. It also comes in a Red, Brown, Blue and Un-colored versions. I cut the image out with the Mega Rectangle Nestabilities Die and then distressed the edge. Layered on Watercolor paper that has been spritzed with Walnut Ink and Salt. Some Buttons, Ribbon a Tatted Flower and a paper flower all work to finish off this card.
Here is a list of the blog hoppers in case you lose your way:
