Summer Silhouettes in Fall

Hello, Stampers! Life is good – my kids are home for the weekend! I wanted to do this post last night but having my family together again was just too fun and I didn’t get this post done. I had a couple of challenges that inspired this card. Summer Silhouettes is a beautiful stamp set that doesn’t get the recognition that it truly deserves.

Summer Silhouettes, Tin of Cards

It’s All in the Details

  • This card started by choosing the Bohemian DSP that works with the challenge colors: Blackberry Bliss, Always Artichoke, and Sahara Sand
  • Using my trusty Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, I stamped the pretty background onto Very Vanilla CS
  • The panel was stamped, layered onto Sahara Sand and the corners were rounded
  • Using the Bird Builder Punch, 4 branches were punched in Always Artichoke then a Basic Metal Button, threaded with Blackberry Bliss Baker’s Twine (SAB) was placed on top
  • The finishing touch was pearls placed on the flowers’ centers

I love a good color challenge and wanted to play along with the Pals Paper Arts this week. I saw the same colors in the color inspiration photo at Fusion Card Challenge and their card sketch was great! Fusion PPA270 (1)
