Happy Monday everyone!  I thought I’d share another card that has my very favorite color combo…okay a slight variation but still the same overall look!

I saw this card on Pinterest (how many stories start like that!) and just fell in love with the look.  It used the Playful Background set (TOTALLY CASEd that look on this) and just had to do my own version of the card.  I changed the colors, words and used leaves instead of colors.  What a fun and happy card!

Here’s the details…

  • Soft Sky – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/8 x 5, stamp lines using Soft Sky, open circles using Cajun Craze and greeting using Early Espresso
  • Early Espresso – 3 1/3 x 4 3/4, add behind whit panel and add to card front
  • Peek-a-boo Peach and Tangerine Tango – cut out solid leaf, add to card front
  • Early Espresso – cut out detail leaf, add to card front
  • Tie piece of jute into a bow, add to card front

This was such a great use of the Playful Background!

Patterned Pumpkins

Tonight was my fun craft group night.  Several of the ladies talked about how they like getting just the thinlits and not necessarily the entire bundle so I decided for my cards, I would pretty much just use the thinlits and add a greeting.  This is one of the cards we did as I also wanted everyone to have the chance to use the fun embossing paste!

The colors don’t show up as good as they really all – the open pumpkin and accents are in Copper Foil…looks REALLY cool!

Here’s the details…

  • Crumb Cake – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Crumb Cake – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, stamp greeting using Early Espresso then use the diamond stencil and embossing paste to add background, layer onto Night of Navy 3 5/8 x 4 7/8
  • Painted Autumn dsp – 1/2 x 3 3/8, add to card front
  • Copper Foil – cut out open pumpkin but save the extra pieces – one will be the accent on the Tangerine Tango Tall pumpkin and the stem on the small Cajun Craze pumpkin
  • Tangerine Tango – tall pumpkin – color stamp using Chocolate Chip marker, add to card front
  • Cajun Craze – small pumpkin, add copper stem over Cajun Craze one, add to card front
  • Add Copper pumpkin
  • Night of Navy, cut out the two stem/leaves, small leaf and curly-q, add to card front
  • Tie bow from the Peek-a-boo Peach Crinkled Seam Binding and add to card front to finish off.
