The Card Concept Challenge is back again after a summer break and they have a gorgeous, colorful fall inspiration photo to get our mojo going! I love stamping leaves so knew I wanted to play along! I went with a clean and layered style which is what I generally gravitate toward.
I'll admit this card was quite an ordeal to put together! I couldn't find the stamp set to add the "veins" to the leaves until AFTER I had colored them all by ink smooshing with distress inks. My original sentiment gave me fits (I'll spare you the agonizing details - lol!) and I finally went to this favorite sentiment set which worked with the first try.
STAMPS: Perfect Pairs Essentials (Papertrey Ink).
PAPER: Sage Shadow (retired from Stampin' Up), Rustic Cream (Papertrey Ink).
INK: Bundled Sage, Shabby Shutters, Milled Lavender, Seedless Preserves, Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber, Spieced Marmalade, Barn Door distress inks by Ranger; True Black (PTI).
DIES: Lovely Leaves, Border Bling: Tin Stitch, Perfect Pairs Esentials (Papertrey Ink); Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-Namics (My Favorite Things).
I've been in fall mode with more than just my cards and have started with some interior decorating. Here's a peek at several vignettes in my dining room, kitchen and family room.
Happy fall y'all! ~Wanda
