Happy Sunday, peeps! Time for another Paper Players challenge, and Ann has a wonderful seasonal color palette for us featuring three of SU’s newest In Colors:
Aren’t they wonderfully fallish!? I pulled out my favorite (sadly retired) fall set, French Foliage for my card today, and I CASEd a style I saw on Pinterest lately; you can see Lyssa’s card here. Normally I try not to CASE something here when I do my challenge card, but it was so striking, I couldn’t wait to try it! Here you go:
Lyssa stamped her flowers on a sheet of Typeset DSP but I had an old botanical book I picked up at a thrift shop, so I tore out a piece of that and began stamping my leaves on it. Actually, I’ve used a bunch of sets on this card!!! (I’ll list them all at the end)! My diecut is from Papertrey, and I cut it from a piece of Mossy Meadow to which I adhered a piece of adhesive sheet; then when I pulled the diecut out, I just peeled off the adhesive and the whole thing was very easy to attach! Everything else except the twine is SU. I used my Envelope Punch Board to create the tab for the top and I added some stitching around the sides, as well as a little diagonal embossing on the corner:
Despite a few little issues going on in our household, this pretty well sums up how I am feeling these days….blessed! And this also qualifies for the Shopping Our Stash challenge, which is fall colors, and the As You See It challenge, which is also fall!
Now, when I pulled out the sentiment, I was left with this negative piece; blessedly, I had centered it pretty well on a little strip that already had a little scallop popped out of it, so I went to work again, loosely using the CAS(E) This Sketch sketch for this week:
My sentiment is not in quite the right spot, but I just love how this turned out:
I used the gingham from Six-Sided Sampler to make the center of my flower, and a little retired die called Merry Details for my bird! Isn’t he cute?!
I sure hope you have as much fun with these colors as I did…can’t wait to see what you come up with! Be sure to check out all the samples from the DT as well:
A couple weeks ago I came into my craft room to find this little scene: a piece of ribbon, a pin cushion and several pins!
Cassidy told me she was making a dress for Cinderella…if you remember the Disney movie, the mice decorate a dress for Cinderella with pins, ribbons and bows! Hmmmm….maybe sewing lessons are next? Enjoy your day!
