October Studio Stampers Blog Hop

Welcome to the Studio Sampers October Blog Hop, if you are joining us in the hop you should have come here from Angela's  blog, if not why not start at the beginning with Karen and hop on down until you get back to me.

Here's another Fall card for your viewing pleasure.  I don't think I can get enough of these colors and leaves.  I started out with a Pebble card base and then decided to go with a Cranberry, Pumpkin, Wasabi, and Vanilla Scheme.  I took a piece of Vanilla cardstock and stamped it with the Woodgrain background stamp in Pebble before I stamped the leaves and outlines from Fresh Foliage in Cranberry and Pumpkin and then the smaller leaf from the same set in Wasabi.  I wrapped a couple of pieces of Holiday Washi tape around this piece before  I mounted it on a piece of Cranberry cardstock.  This is popped up on the cardbase with 3d dimensional adhesive.  I die cut a label is cut from Vanilla cardstock with the Labels die before I  stamped it with a Vintage Labels matching outline in Pebble. I stamped off a leaf from Fresh Foliage in Wasabi ink on some scrap paper before I stamped it onto the die cut.  Finally,  I stamped the  sentiment from Contemporary Greetings in French Roast on this die cut before it was mounted on the card front with 3 d foam adhesive.  It probably took me longer to type up this post than it did to actually do the stamping but it's another card that I love that has major "wow" going on without taking hours to complete.
Thanks for visiting and next on the hop is Lisa Chapman, if you get lost, or there is a problem with the link here is the complete list.

A Muse|Studio WCMD Challenge: Buttons

I love Fall!  We have Indian Summers here in the Bay Area and generally have our best weather in September and October.  Plus, it's football season and one of my favorite things to do is to hang out and tailgate with family and friends.  There's nothing better on a gorgeous Fall Day.

Besides tailgating and football, I also love the gorgeous colors of Fall.  Yellow and Orange have always been my favorite colors and I love when the leaves turn colors.  This card is my entry into a muse|studio's WCMD Challenge to use buttons on your card.  All supplies are from a muse|studio and can be purchased 24/7 from my webstore.  

Here's the details on the card.  I started out with a Pebble card base and added a piece of Vanilla cardstock which I'd stamped with leaves from Fresh Foliage in Wasabi, Pumpkin, and Currant.  The leaf outlines were stamped after inking the stamped and the solid inner portion was stamped after stamping off on scratch paper once.   I added a strip of Slate Woodgrain cardstock across the center in lieu of ribbon and then topped it off with 3 pumpkin buttons.  The sentiment from Fresh Foliage is stamped on the Pebble portion of the card in Slate ink.  Easy peesy lemon squeezey!  I hear this card--Pebble is such a great neutral color and the autumn leaves make me happy when I look at them.  Thanks for visiting and be sure to come back again real soon.

Paper:  Pebble, Vanilla, Slate Woodgrain
Stamps:  Fresh Foliage
