Welcome to a fun, monthly blog hop by Stampin' Up! demonstrators training with Janet Wakeland of Remarkably Created Training Center. We are all aiming for the Stampin' Up! Incentive trip #Alaska2016 , and our aim with the blog hop is to inspire YOU as we set goals and reach them! Our theme this month is fall…
My share is a fall card that is super fun and easy to make with the Big Shot and just a tiny bit of stamping. I chose a color scheme I've been using for quite a few projects: Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum, and Tangerine Tango. Those two bright colors, Rich Razzleberry and Tangerine Tango are the perfect complement to the soft sweetness of Sweet Sugarplum, one of the 2016-2018 Stampin' Up! In Colors. Together, they make for a bright, modern take on fall.
This is sometimes known as a peekaboo technique–or effect–as you create an opening and then fill it so that it peeks out. In this case, I ran my Rich Razzleberry card stock through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Folder and then used the Leaflets Dies to create my window. Then I "filled" my space with the gorgeous Blooms & Bliss DSP. I like the effect of the flowers filling in the leaf open space. It brings a ittle bit of the unexpected. In addition, I have a bright color scheme, and the soft flower images and soft colors in Blooms & Bliss DSP give a nice contrast.
I would like to bring your attention to one more thing and that is the Halloween Night Enamel Dots. I think they are very fun little pops of color that go well beyond Halloween, and they are so easy to use as they are self-adhesive. They brought the perfect final touch to my fall card. The greeting is from Christmas Banners, but I made this same card with a Happy Birthday sentiment in the same spot. So you can easily change this up a bit to suit your needs.
Thanks so much for stopping by. As always, everything I used to create this card is listed and linked below for your convenience. Now it's time to hop on over to the next stop on the #Alaska2016 blog hop!
