Falling Leaves

Hi everyone! I have been one busy girl. Have been spending a good bit of time crafting and working ahead on various design team projects. And this temps here in north Florida has been glorious... definitely 'open-window' weather! It's time for another fun challenge over at Crafty Friends and I'm really excited to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #42 - Autumn Colors! Come on over and play for a chance to win some awesome prizes! As always, we have some really amazing sponsors:

I chose 'Image 757' from Sherri Baldy "Besties" Digi Stamps which is two super cute sweeties playing a large pumpkin. It doesn't get any cuter than this, lol! I paired this adorable image with some fun Fall-themed papers and ephemera. I layered all the elements on brown cardstock and used a large resin bow instead of a ribbon bow this time. Something a little different.

I thoroughly enjoyed coloring this image and cut it with a new double-stitched die. All the little candy pieces have clear Wink of Stella for a little shimmer, and the tiny pink flowers and her hair bow have Glossy Accents on them. :)

For the inside, I used a couple strips of leftover paper from the front, stamped a sentiment and layered the panel on the brown cardstock.

I'm happy to enter this Autumn/Fall themed card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock, Stampin' Up! Whisper White and Chocolate Chip cardstock, papers and Fall ephemera from Polly's Paper Studio Fall Harvest Creativity Kit
  • Stamps: Sherri Baldy "Besties" Digi Stamps 'Image 757', Stampin' Up! 'A Happy Thing' stamp set
  • Ink: Spectrum Noir- FS2, FS3, FS6, OR1, OR2, CT4, EB3, PP2, IB2, DG2, DG3, IG1, CR11; Spectrum Noir Aqua- Rose Pink, Blossom, Begonia, Bud Green, Marigold and Jasmine
  • Dies/Punches: 
  • Accessories: Clear Wink of Stella, Gold Wink of Stella, Freckled Fawn Large Resin Bow, GKD Fresh Asparagus Stitched Ribbon, Stampin' Up! Pearls
