This week’s CanYouCaseIt.com challenge is a designer’s choice in the theme of Fall.
While I adore the rich Autumnal colors so prevelant this time of year, I decided to try something a little different for this card. Instead of the deeper yellows, green, and reds, I used much softer colors: So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, and Blushing Bride.
The Lovely As a Tree stamp set is perfect for this card. I inked the foliage part of the tree with the So Saffron Classic Stampin’ Pad; then I used a Sponge Dauber to apply Blushing Bride, then Pear Pizzazz. I colored in the tree trunk with a Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker. Then I huffed and I puffed, and stamped the image on Very Vanilla card stock.
I stamped the Early Espresso sentiment, from the Tin of Cards stamp set, overlapping the tree.
I stamped the arrows, from the Chalk Lines stamp set, twice in Pear Pizzazz – once above the sentiment and once below – to create the illusion of long continuous lines that are simply broken up by the sentiment.
And finally, I matted the stamped piece with Soft Suede, then adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the Pear Pizzazz card base.
Here’s what I used today. Click on the images to buy these products so you can make your own version of this softly Autumnal card!
