Before I share today’s project, I want to thank Deanne Kuntz, a Design Team member at the Paper Players, for selecting my card from last week’s Autumn Floral theme challenge as her “A Cut Above” selection. Deanne (obviously) has great taste! 🙂 If you missed that sweet-and-simple card, you can check it out here. I love playing along with online challenges for the inspiration they provide. It’s always wonderful to be recognized by the challenge team members. Thank you!
Today’s card is inspired by this week’s Color Challenge from the Paper Players (Early Espresso, Crushed Curry and Peekaboo Peach) from my talented friend Joanne James and by the FabFriday sketch challenge that kicks off today! What fun to combine the two! Here’s my card:
And here’s the banner for the challenge that inspired the layout of my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Bright Idea! My card features the super-fun combination of this lantern (from Seasonal Lantern in Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Holiday Catalog) and this sentiment (from the High Tide stamp set in Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Annual Catalog). What a great way to let someone know that they are important to you – isn’t that what this hobby is all about? I feel particularly thankful for the people in my life this time of year – this combination of stamps really helps to create a wonderful sentiment. Here’s a look at the Seasonal Lantern Bundle:
And here’s a look at the gorgeous and inspiring High Tide stamp set:
- Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. Like the lantern and sentiment on this card, the background paper also evokes the feeling of light. The mix of Peekaboo Peach and Tangerine Tango feels like a warm fire or sunset, and the spots feel like fireflies in the dawn sky. It really adds a lovely feel to this card. If you like this pattern, then you’ll LOVE the other pages in this wonderful pack of papers. Here’s a look at the other pages and colors in Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper:
- All the Things. There are few elements on this card, so each element plays an important role. Here’s a look at the key products used to make this sweet-and-simple card:
Stamp Sets: Seasonal Lantern, High Tide Papers: Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Thick Very Vanilla Inks: Early Espresso, Crushed Curry, Peekaboo Peach Accessories: Lantern Builder Dies, Stampin’ Dimensionals
