Hello Fall x 2

It is beginning to feel like Fall on the island with the days getting shorter and the nights getting cooler.  This inspired me to create a Fall card.  I ended up creating one card for two challenges!  The two challenges are: Create with Connie & Mary CCMC318 – a color challenge – and Pals Paper Arts PPA217 – a sketch challenge.

Here’s the card:

CCMC318 & PPA217

  • The color combination of Hello Honey, Pool Party, and Basic Gray are perfect for a Fall card.
  • A layer of Very Vanilla was stamped with the Hardwood stamp using Basic Gray to provide the perfect background and reinforce the theme.
  • The fussy-cut wheat image was mounted on top of a Pool Party circle to become the focal point of the card.

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy, and happy stamping!

Hello Again

Hello.  With the remodel almost finished, I’m finally getting a chance to get back to my blog. My card was inspired by this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge CCMC301. Everything about this card was accidental – most of the stamped pieces where ones I had lying around on the desk and the framelit pieces originally were cut too big so I had to “recut” them, which gave me the wonderful window effect. I love when creativity “just happens”.  Here’s how the card came together:

  • Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, and Smokey Slate combine for a fresh spring feel.
  • You can never go wrong with layered flowers popped up with a dimensional.
  • A gray candy dot accents the flower center.
