Autumn Harvest


Wow, I'm a late stamper this summer. When the kids are in school, I stamp in the morning. Now with them home, I can barely get any stamping in during the morning. That's ok though. You need to cherish each moment. Stamping can always happen later. :)
This is for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS. I thought it was a really pretty sketch perfect for smaller images. And I just LOVE these colors together. This Soft Suede is a really great neutral. And it goes so well with this Confetti cream. I love the tone on tone in the colors.

It's actually pretty Clean and Simple for me. Parts of each of the squares are cut out and popped up in the design. But otherwise quite easy. Even without the popping up, it would make a good workshop card hey? I added texture to the main Soft Suede panel and the framing of the squares, it adds to the horizontal feel of the card.

Back tomorrow with the Dare to Get Dirty Challenge!

Recipe: Stamps: Autumn Days, Cute Converse; Ink: Soft Suede; Paper: Soft Suede, Confetti Cream; Accessories: Big Shot, Texturz Plate, Scalloped Edge Punch, Vintage Brads, Kraft Taffeta Ribbon, Piercer, Dimensionals

You are a wise mom, Christine. My family is all long ago grown and I'm enjoying every possible moment with grandchildren now. And I love your posts and art, early OR late!

This is wonderful, Christine! I love the monochromatic look of it! Soft Suede is definitely my new favorite! Your neat little bow is just perfect and I love how you popped up just a piece of each image! Beautiful!
