For All Things Card

This Sunday was my Holiday Catalog Open House, and it was a fun time of chatting and stamping with the friends who were able to come!  The make and take was this card, which I CASED from Stampin' Success, our demonstrator magazine:

The card is relatively straightforward to create, using the For All Things stamp set and the Color Me Autumn Washi Tape.    The card base is Very Vanilla, leaves are stamped in Blackberry Bliss, "hello" in Crushed Curry, and one change I made is that the watercolor background image is stamped in Crumb Cake (didn't have the Sahara Sand ink pad -- may have to fix that during the Stamp, Stock & Save promotion, which starts tomorrow!!!  Stay tuned for more details!)   Another change is that I used a Regals Button (rather than a Gold Button), with the Linen Thread bow.  Probably my favorite part of this card is the Blackberry Bliss spatters, which we made by loading the tip of an Aqua Painter with Blackberry Bliss ink, then tapping the Aqua Painter against a finger while holding it over the card.  The splash zone for this technique was surprisingly large!  :)  Anyway, here's a close up so you can see some of the splatters a little better:

In addition to the make and take, we had refreshments and displays.  Here are some photos of those:
