Welcome to the Orange Blog Hop courtesy of Fiskateers worldwide!!! You should have just arrived from CraftySuz 6135 http://craftysuz.com. If you just happened to stumble upon my blog and want to join the Blog Hop, head on over to the Fiskateer Blog first to start going through the list.
Today I am sharing this easy little card made form scraps. I keep bags of scraps by color and cards are a great way to use them up.
I used a Fiskars Stamp Set (Farmhouse) and a corner punch (with guides removed) to make the scalloped border.
Inked up this big background stamp from the Farmhouse set with Chalk ink–it is less opaque (dark) than regular ink with a softer look. I stamped the entire card front with the stamp–background stamps are awesome for cards because they usually are slightly bigger than a regular A2 card front. And stamps can give plain cardstock new life!
After stamping I sprayed my entire card with Smooch Spritz in Gold Glow.
Then I set about adding details and decorating. Easy peasy!
I really appreciate you coming by my blog so I am giving away a RAK! You can win a set of Candy Corn Custom Colored Stick Pins from my etsy shop :)
Just leave a comment below about what projects you're working on for Fall and I'll choose one random winner on Sunday.

Just hopping thru all the blogs to say hello to fellow blog hop participants. Your frames are wonderful. doverdi #1329
I worked on Mini books for Nanci….LOL
Love the pins! Hoping to clean my space to be even able to scrap! *sigh*
Fascinating stuff all over your blog. New fiskateer #7351
Great job Jen
Great blog! Thanks for the inspiration.
Oh, I adore that card !
What an absolutley lovely card!
I’ve got lots of sewing projects slated for fall.
Thanks for the fun stop on the hop!
LOVE that flower and it looks so easy to make, yet it really makes a statement.
Candy corn stick pins huh? very cool. now I want some dang candy corn. thanks. :)
I don’t really have any fall projects, just gotta get my Christmas gifts started. I’ll be doing the glass blocks this year. Probably gonna do the frost look on some, add the lights, cut out either Merry Christmas or the family name with my cricut and some vinyl… not entirely sure yet. guess I better get started though.
Farmhouse is one of my favorite Fiskars Stamp sets. You did an incredible job with your card. I’m inspired. My next fall project is to work on my State Fair entries for scrapbooking and punch work. Of course it will be a Fiskars punch. LOL
I’m going back to Claudine Hellmuth’s online class and try to finish up – been so busy with work, garden, mom-keeping, etc.! donna m. #7352
I need to start making a magnetic organizer…yeah…I have the paper…just not the board!
ok, I had seen that Farmhouse stamp before and thought it was oK, but I must say you have me sold on it now! Beautiful work! I’m working on some Halloween ATC’s right now and haven’t decided what’s next (painting some rooms of my house may take precedence over scrapping—eek!).
Beautiful card! No fall projects for me but I am in the middle of a few sewing things.
Right now I’m working on a birthday banner for my son’s first birthday!
very cute card. Loved the flower. I’m working an ABC’ album for my grandson.
Farmhouse Stamp set would be a nice addition to my collection! : ) I am working on mini albums as gifts and I have twin granddaughters so I am always working on something for them . At the present time I am sewing their Halloween costumes. They are only 4 years old, so I am hoping that they fit them!!
What a cool rak! Something made by you I love it. Thanks for a chance to win and a great blog stop.

Great card. Never thought of taking off the guards on a corner punch. I’ll have to try that.
I’m working on a travel project.
great project. and those pins are adorable.
Great work. The project that I am working on for fall is to get caught up in my photo albums for the year 2009!! – Marla#3291
Love the card.
Great card! Love those candy corn stick pins too!
Adorable card, thanks for sharing.
Christine C #2264
Fantastic detail in your beautiful card.
What a cool card! Love the accordian fold flower – I have tried and tried and can’t get mine to lay flat. My fall project is to scrapbook Halloweens past. Great art!
Love that card! I am going to work on pages from this summer. Need to get caught up.
New to many of these blogs and am having fun hopping.
mmm i love candy corn….love the way you set up the pins….
Great card. Did someone say candy corn. It must be getting close to halloween. My favorite candy
Beautiful card Jennifer – LOVE the layers and dimension of your flower!!!
Definitely got to try making one of those folded ones :o)
Thank you but no RAK for me – I’m international.
I am working on table favors for my niece’s wedding, very fun to be crafty for someone else!
Beautiful card…love the flowers. What a wonderfully, crafty, Fiskateer project. Thanks for sharing your creativity. #6243
This is indeed gorgeous but you’re not getting off this easy. How in the world do you use a corner bunch to make the scalloped border. Senior inquiring minds need to know!
Fabulous project. And thank you so much for sharing the talent and the goodies. Donna 6036
Very pretty! I too keep plastic bags full of scraps. I never reach for new paper, until I’ve exhausted my stash first. I keep the pretty new, full sheets for a specific project. Thanks for sharing, I love the little pins. I’ve never used them. Thanks for sharing!
Such a pretty card! TFS
Cool project . ..
oh cool! i love all the layers on that flower — especially the fan-type circle. very neat!
Your card is gorgeous (I expect nothing less from you, of course ;) but those little stick pins? CAH-UTE!!!
Thanks for sharing,
cool project, love the colors used. Your stick pins are so darling. Love them.
Your photography skills are amazin
thanks for sharing your pretty projects.
Very nice card! The flower is so pretty and looks like something even I could do!
LOVE your card! Sooooo cute! I keep my scraps organized the same way! I bought 3 sets of the the 12 x 12 3 drawer cubes from Target to keep them straight! I may have to scraplift your gorgeous card :)
Very fabuloius card…now I mst find that stamp set! Thanks for enabling, lol!
Hmm what am I working on for Fall? 6 circle journals are the forefront of my mind :)
Hope you have been doing well!
I just started scrapping again after a year of getting nothing done – thanks for inspiring me!
I just love that Fiskars stamp set. It’s so cute.
Great job Jen! Your blog is wonderful
Everyone else has said it all. You are fantastically crafty and I loved it.
love the cards…fabulous!
O How Pretty I wish I could Feel them they look like leather Thank UUUU
Pretty cards. You are so crafty. I am working on getting ready for my first crop on September 25 and on a couple of craft shows in October and November.
These are so pretty! I thought you had designer paper and then found out it was a background stamp, so cool. I am working on scrapbook pages for fall.
Cool lookin Cards. Love the “using ur scraps” idea, just what I need, lol.
I’m busy workin on a scrapbook for my son born Aug 31, 2010. I want to get a head start so that I’m not swamped later on.
Hugs, Rosalee #5977
Love your cards. I’ve done a couple fall layouts for LSS I design for
