Hi there, stamping friend!
Welcome back to another weekly challenge with the Paper Craft Crew!
This week we have a colour challenge for you – have a look:
These are the perfect fall colours, don’t you think? My initial instinct was to go with leaves for my card, but a quick look at what the rest of the design team had done (I was running behind, so I could see what some of the others had already created) made me re-think; they’re cards are fabulous of course, but there were a lot of leaf themed cards already! So here’s what I came up with;
Yes, still leaves, but in a different format! 😉
I like to hang a wreath on my front door, and sometimes on the inside of the kitchen door, so that’s how I thought of this.
I created the ‘door’ by stamping a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ Crumb Cake cardstock with the Hardwood background stamp, in Crumb Cake ink. I then stamped another piece the same, then used my Stampin’ Trimmer to cut the ‘panels’; the 2 top sections are each 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″, and the 2 bottom panels are each 1 1/2″ x 2 1/2″. I used a Sponge Dauber and Crumb Cake ink to sponge around the edges of all of the panels, as well as the ‘door’.
I used the Wondrous Wreath stamp set, and stamped the bottom leaves in Pumpkin Pie ink. The next layer of leaves are in Cajun Craze ink. I then stamped the ribbon and bow in both Daffodil Delight and Cajun Craze, then die cut all the pieces using the Big Shot and the Wonderful Wreath Framelits dies. I also used this die set to cut out the ‘Joy’ in both Cajun Craze and Daffodil Delight cardstock.
I then layered all of the pieces on top of the door; for effect, I offset the 2 colours of the ‘joy’ and the ribbon/bow, using the new Thin Tipped Glue Pen. The door was then layered onto the card base of Very Vanilla cardstock.
That was it – a nice, quick card that has a bit of ‘punch’ with the extra layers and dimensions.
Now I hope you’ll head over to the Paper Craft Crew page, and see what the rest of the design team has created for your inspiration! Then I hope you’ll be inspired to join us in this challenge – you just may be one of the next design team top picks!
Until next time – happy stamping!
