Hello, and welcome back! So, I decided to take a small break from the scrapbooking posts for some challenges and fall colors. I spent some time crafting over the Labor Day weekend with two of my crafting besties Janie and Tiffany. I opened my pack of Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper, and went to town. I made four different cards that I'll be sharing over the next couple of days. Then I'll go back to two more scrapbooking posts.
So, here is my first card. In addition to the Sweather Weather paper, I used Sahara Sand for the card base and Whisper White for the greeting flag. I die cut the leaf with my Silhouette e-cutter from Whisper White Textured Cardstock (retired, but the new Core-dinations Cardstock is very similar). I smushed the leaf into the Crushed Curry inkpad first, concentrating on the middle of the leaf. Then, I smushed it into the Tangerine Tango inkpad concentrating on the outer edges of the leaf. Then, I sprayed it with water so the colors would blend a bit.
I used this awesome sketch from Retro Sketches #79 to start with.
Here is a close-up of the card. I added in some Natural Trim Ribbon folded together over sticky strip. I stamped the greeting from the Lots of Thanks stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink on Whisper White, and cut it into a flag shape. Then I layered a few loops of Linen Thread, and a copper safety pin from the Vintage Trinkets Accents & Elements.
That's all for today! I have another fall card for a different challenge to share tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!
