Autumn Leaves

It's Friday! That means it's time for a Friday Mashup card! This one I'm actually posting on time! 

  • Stamps: Gently Falling, Chalk Talk
  • Card Stock: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Very Vanilla
  • Ink: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Baked Brown Sugar
  • Accessories: XL Oval Punch, Burlap Ribbon, Paper Snips, Stampin' Dimensinoals, Rhinestones, Early Espresso 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain ribbon, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project with a  "Tree or Leaves."
  2. Create a project using the "Color Orange."
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "Project with Leaves/ Tree & the Color Orange."
For this lovely I started off with a piece of Bermuda Bay card stock cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4". Next I cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock 3-5/8" x 4-7/8". I stamped the leaves from Gently falling all over the top end of the card stock using the Rock-N-Roll technique with Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, and Cajun Craze inks. I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to stamp the leaf outlines in Baked Brown Sugar ink. This was adhered onto a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Crushed Curry card stock.

Next I cut a piece of Burlap Ribbon 5-1/2" long, used Paper Snips to trim one end into a dove-tail shape, and used some Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to adhere it onto the panel and around to the backside. I wrapped a piece of Early Espresso Stitched Grosgrain ribbon around the panel and tied it into a bow. This panel was adhered onto the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

For the greeting from Chalk Talk I simply stamped it onto a scrap of Bermuda Bay card stock in Bermuda Bay ink, punched it out with the XL Oval punch, added a couple Rhinestones, and adhered it onto the card front with a few Stampin' Dimensionals. 

On the inside I just stamped a few of the leaf outlines onto the card stock in Bermuda Bay ink. So much fun! 

If you have a chance head on over to the Friday Mashup to see what the rest of the design team has created!
