This month we are hopping with a Back to School or Fall Theme! I kind of rode the middle of the line! However, I used the color challenge from The Paper Players this week as inspiration!
Last week on my posts I was on a bit of a shaker craze! This week Ive tried to ween myself from doing so many! Fall cards are so hard for me sometimes. It isn't necessarily the colors or even the papers... They are just HARD! Justin had told me about the color combo on The Paper Players and it tripped a trigger! Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Pear Pizzazz! What can be more fall like than that?!
My card is a rich base of Cajun Craze with a great contrasting matte of Pear Pizzazz. The Regal Collection DSP in Crushed Curry worked just right with the feel of this card! I took the apple pattern from the Fruit Stand DSP and adhered it to a Pear Pizzazz matte on top of the Crushed Curry and then tied a nice knot with 5/8 inch Burlap Ribbon on the left. The Banners for You set save my butt!!!! I wasn't sure how I was going to pull the three colors together. I stamped the three layer banner using Crushed Curry ink. The sentiment also from the Banners for You in the top and very bottom were stamped in Cajun Craze ink. The nice little decorate center of the banner was stamped using Pear Pizzazz. That one stamp set made it easy to tie all three of my colors together!!
Last fall I made this cute little pumpkin.This year it is suppose to be an apple! Isn't this darling?? I stumbled on the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and figured it was cute enough to do again!
