Autumn Home

Have the cooler temperatures reached your area if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere?  We’ve had some beautiful days but I can sense that more crisp air is coming.  We have the perfect challenge this week at The Cat’s Pajamas and it’s all about using fall colours.  

I pulled out TCP’s set Home for All Seasons for the pretty house with the front porch (still a dream of mine!) and stamped it in a pretty burgundy shade (Memento Rhubarb Stalk) and then coloured in the house with some E43, E44, E47 markers.  I added the pretty autumn tree from the set, stamping the foliage in Cantaloupe ink and then adding in the other colours for the leaves with dots of Copic markers.  Next I added some of the cute little pumpkins around the tree, a bit of grassy wisps and then framed it out with one of our TCP Dies Stitched Fly, just cutting out the inside parts of the die cut so it makes a frame. 

 Next I stamped the pretty background leaves from the Wreath Building Kit set,  accenting the design with some TCP die cut leaves, and Bitty Banners, and some twine and a veneer heart.  

The background is a nice herringbone design that adds texture but still gives you that cozy fall feel.  

Here’s the inside of the card with the sentiment from TCP’s Besties set.  I thought it fit perfectly!  

Here’s how you can jump in on the Fall Colors Challenge:  

  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat’s Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
  2. If you want to play along you just upload your design to The Cat’s Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button by the Monday, 11:55 EDT before the next challenge.
  3. You are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp or die but if you have them we would love to see them.
  4. On the following TCP Tuesday, the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $10 or $15 if a TCP product is used.  
Now here’s The Cat Pack in action....
