PPA11 and LSC241
Good afternoon! My card for today is the result of 2 challenges. This week's Pals Paper Arts challenge and SCS's weekly Limited Supply challenge. The PPA challenge #11 was a color challenge and we were to incorporate Perfect Plum, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie into our card design. I loved all the the design team's samples and just had to contribute myself. This is my first time actually uploading a card for PPA and I hope it is a worthy entry. For this week's Limited supply challenge we were to get back to basics and create a fall themed card using only paper, stamps and ink. (NO embellishments like ribbon, buttons or brads-yikes!) So, I went to work with both challenges in mind and I am pleased with my result.
Here is the recipe:
Stamps: Autumn Harvest, Sweet Centers (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: Perfect Plum, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Confetti White, Basic Black, Cast-a-Spell DSP (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Basic Black, Markers (Stampin' Up!)
Tools: circle, scallop circle punches (Stampin' Up!), Top Note Die (Stampin' Up!), Big Shot ( Stampin' Up!/Sizzix), Cuttle Bug Folder (Provo Craft)
The pumpkin and leave images were stamped onto the dsp and then cut out using paper snips. I also used dimensionals to give my card a little depth. Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by!
