Fall Fest

IC456I haven’t done an inspiration challenge for a couple weeks over on SCS but when I saw this inspiration piece…well..quick frankly…I was INSPIRED!

What I loved about the inspiration piece I just love the simple colors (black, white, tangerine) and since I’ve been LOVIN’ the Fall Fest set … it was ‘match made in heaven!  LOL!!!

I thought the Back to Black dsp would provide the ‘pattern’ seen in the vases and then the tangerine perfect for the pop of color!

Here’s the details -

  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 11 folded
  • Basic Black – 3 1/2 x 4, add to card front
  • Tangerine Tango – 1 1/2 x 3 1/3, punch with scallop edge punch and add to card front
  • Stamp greeting using Basic Black
  • White print – 2 3/4 x 4 and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Black print (backside of white print) – 5/8 x 4 1/4.  Cut into banner and add to card front
  • Stamp large pumpkin in Tangerine Tango and Basic Black – add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp small pumpkin in Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black – add to card front using double stack of dimensionals
