Autumn Thanks

Sunday, September 16, 2012

Happy Fall to ALL!  My first post in about four months.  And, it has been an eventful three months for sure, not what I was expecting or planning!  Explanation to come soon, but for now, a card for the Tuesday Morning Sketch and Color Throwdown challenges.

I love the effect I got here with the Autumn Silhouette stamp set.  I had embossed the background DP but you can't really see it but it does add a little texture to the card.  Thanks to the September 2012 issue of CardMaker for the technique I somewhat used to stamp my trees and pop out squares.  Love the fall colors of Color Throwdown.  And the Tuesday Morning sketch was perfect with it.  However, I have to say, the card is very reminiscient of another project I did earlier in the year making a calendar insert.

Stamps:  Autumn Silhouettes (Kanban); Sentiment-So Much Thanks (Fiskars).
Paper:  Buttercream & chocolate cardstock; DP: Farmhouse (Crate Paper).
Ink:  Pistachio (Memento); Scarlet, Sunshine (stash); Orange (Colorbox); Timber Brown (Staz On).
Extras:  Emboss folder (Couture Creations); postal edge (Spellbinders); Red elastic twine; red, yellow, gold gems.

So until next time...
