Welcome to the Stamp to Share Blog Hop for October.  We are so excited to bring you ideas and inspiration using the First Frost bundle of products.

I find myself gravitating more toward floral images these days, not sure why as I am not exactly a keen gardener, and this bundle of products stole my heart as soon as I saw them.  I have a wedding to attend soon and I knew this set would be perfect for such an occasion.  I don't know the wedding parties colours, so I went for an elegant black and white theme instead.

For some reason, I like making cards at the moment that are really hard to photograph!  Didn't think that through too carefully, did I?!  Can you see that very subtle shimmer on some of the background plants?  It looks stunning in real like and to achieve that look, I simply stamped in Versamark, heat set with clear embossing powder, sprinkled over Dazzling Diamonds and then heat set again.

I hope the happy couple like that card I made for them.  For more inspiration, click on the next button below to visit with my friend Rochelle Blok in Australia!
