TGIFC 186 - Fall Country Cottage Inspiration

Hello and welcome back! It's time for this week's TGIF Challenge. This week is an inspiration photo with a fall country cottage theme. I love these colors together! Some of the team will also be featuring a new stamp set that we received at the recent Stampin' Up On Stage Live convention.


I was inspired by the colors aqua, green, orange, white and the leaves and weather wood. I pulled out a set from the main catalog called Painted Harvest and the coordinating Leaf Punch. I started by making the background on the Pool Party card base. I stamped the fern detail stamp in Pool Party ink, after stamping off, all over the card, rotating the stamp as I went. I also used a piece of the Wood Textures patterned paper, and after tracing a large circle I fussy cut it out. For the next circle layer, I stamped Whisper White Craft ink for the petals and Pumpkin Pie ink for the flower centers onto Crumb Cake Cardstock. This was die cut with the next to the largest circle die from the Layering Circle Die set. I stamped the leaves in Pool Party ink onto Old Olive Cardstock, and then over-stamped the detail leaf with Old Olive Ink. These were punched, layered and adhered to the bottom of the Crumb Cake circle. The whole thing was adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.


To finish the card, I stamped the greeting from the same set in Old Olive ink onto the same Wood Textures patterned paper, and die cut it with a label from the Farmhouse Framelits Dies. I adhered Linen Thread behind the greeting, and then adhered it to the card with more Stampin' Dimensionals. I also curled up the ends of the leaves for some extra dimension.


Well, that is all for today. Please check out the TGIF Challenges blog this week for more inspiration!
