The second challenge is for Stampin Up Only (SUO) Challenge #1 - FALL. Now you can see why this card will work for both. ..and here's my card.
I started with Cajun Craze CS for the card base, then matted a piece of Elegant Soiree DSP to Early Espresso CS. I punch a scrap of More Mustard CS with the Photo Corners XL punch and added an old olive brad, then glued to the card front. I stamped the design using one of my favorite sets, Autumn Harvest in Cajun Craze and Early Expresso. I colored the pumpkins using a blender pen and inks, starting with More Mustard and blending in Cajun Craze, then adding Old Olive to the stems. The leaves used the same colors, blending as I colored. I colored the acorns with Write Markers, then a touch of shadowing on the ground also with markers. I then finished it off by highlighting the veins in the leaves and pumpkin stems with a gel pen. I stamped the "Give Thanks" sentiment in Early Expresso right over the finished pumpkins. I distressed the edges; first with old olive and repeated with early expresso. I matted the same way as the DSP piece, photo corner & brad in the upper corner this time.
I used the Tiny Tags stamp set and punch to add three small tags to the Expresso 1/8" ribbon; tied on with Linen Thread. I used dimensionals to add this mat to the card front.
Well that's it! Done... and I like it! If only I had better lighting for the photos.. Hmmmmm. I really have to work on that.
Now it's your turn to join the fun!
