Hi folks! What an exciting start to the month of October! Halloween blog hops (there is another one on Friday, so don’t miss it), TWO Stampin’ Up Specials, a Stamp-a-Stack class for World Card Making Day… and a whole bunch of cards to share in between everything going on!
For this fall themed card I have for you, I used one of the Designer Series Papers included in the Buy 3 Get 1 Free special – Painted Autumn. It’s got a lovely mix of colors, and they fit right on with the colors picked for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #261.
The colors screamed ‘fall’ to me.. and as hard as I tried to make a neon green flower, it didn’t quite turn out. 🙂 So, I made a Coral one instead!
I love all the elements of this one.. It’s got a strip of the DSP with Cajun Craze behind it. The flower from Painted Harvest is stamped with both the Calypso Coral and Cajun Craze. I used both Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide for the middle and the leaves.
The vellum leaves are punched with the coordinating Leaf punch (available in the bundle to save 10%), and all washed over with some Wink of Stella for the sparkle. A little bit of the Tranquil Tide ribbon is peeking out from the bottom. I also used the same Layered Leaves embossing folder as one of my Halloween cards since it fit in nicely with the other leaves.
Such a fun card to make! Don’t forget to check out the DSP special so you can pick up some of the fun papers to make your own creations! 🙂
