I love a good challenge. As soon as I saw Linda’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge to make a long, slender card, I knew I wanted to play along. I also knew I wanted to build a long word with my super-cool Playful Alphabet Dies and accent the word with some fun, new products. Here’s my 8-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ card:
- Thankful. I absolutely adore the Playful Alphabet Dies. We’ve has several alphabet dies over the years, but these are the best! They are designed with a great font and the perfect size for cards and scrapbook pages. Some of the letters are even doubled-up to save you a little time. Yay! Here’s a look at the Playful Alphabet Dies: I cropped the letters on my card with Soft Suede cardstock and then again with the Foam Adhesive Sheets. I peeled back the top layer of the cropped Adhesive Sheet and carefully placed the cardstock letter on top. The Foam Adhesive Sheets are amazing!
- Beautiful Autumn. My popped-up sentiment is adorned with leaves and acorns from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set and coordinating Autumn Punch Pack. The leaves and acorns build out from the top, left corner and the bottom, right corner. Here’s a closer look: The three punches that come with the bundle are adorable (they aren’t itty bitty punches – each is a comparable size to the Small Bloom punch from this year’s Sale-a-Bration event). Here’s a look at this bundle from Stampin’ Up!’s August – December 2020 Mini Catalog: I showcased one of the sentiments from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set on the project I shared with you yesterday – I hope you’ll check it out if you missed it yesterday.
- Fall Color Combination. I love Fall colors – and I really enjoyed playing with the colors on my card today. I incorporate d two In Colors and two neutrals that blended together beautifully. If you like this mix of Bumblebee, Terracotta Tile and Soft Suede, I hope you’ll save this off for future reference:
Bundles: Beautiful Autumn Bundle Stamp Sets: Beautiful Autumn Papers: Terracotta Tile, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla Inks: Bumblebee, Terracotta Tile, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede Accessories: Playful Alphabet Dies, Autumn Punch Pack, Foam Adhesive Sheets, Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
