Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler + Awesomely Artistic = FALL
So long summer.
Boo hoo. With the passing of Labor Day, summer is unofficially over. True, it’s a couple more weeks on the calendar before fall, but the crisp mornings and slightly cooler temperatures mean fall to me. Although I hate to say good-bye to summer, fall is my favorite season.
I love the colors. Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler. The colors are one of the most amazing parts of fall. Picture falling leaves and a changing landscape.
For today’s birthday card, I combined the fall palette, the eclectic art of Awesomely Artistic and the Global Design Project layout. The result is a design that would suit birthday greetings, a thank you note, a thinking of you or sympathy card.
Just Stamp Tips
Designer Series Paper Stacks offer versatile prints that don’t overpower stamp art. I chose the Regals stack with a sheet of Crushed Curry script. Specifically, it measures 5 1/4 x 4″.
Fall colors were borrowed from both the Brights and Regals collections. The Old Olive layer measures 4 x 3 1/2″.
Baker’s Twine is sweetly understated. A slight hint of Crushed Curry with a twist of neutral white forms a simple bow.
A floral spray was inked in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a 4 x 3″ layer of Very Vanilla.
Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits snipped the ornate border created with a simple sentiment borrowed from Thoughtful Banners, a collection which includes 47 words to create a ton of sentiments. The transparent photopolymer stamps make spot-on placement easy every time.
Blender Pens unleash the artist in everyone. Press the ink pad when closed to create a color palette and dip the pen a little, or a lot.
