Welcome to the Color Fusers Blog Hop for October! We have an autumnal set of colors to work with this month and the challenge is that we have to use ALL of these colors on our projects!
I decided to go with a fall sunset theme – we have the most spectacular sunsets here in September/October in Central Texas and these colors reminded me of just that! I decided to stack them up, add a silhouette and love how it turned out…
I used strips of all 3 colors to create my background and the pretty tree is cut from black cardstock using a die from Sweet Silhouettes Dies…
I decided to put the lightest color on the bottom so that I could stamp my sentiment directly onto it – that is a stamp from the set Butterfly Gala – one of my favs!
I tied around a piece of the beautiful Black Scalloped Edge Ribbon from the Holiday Catalog and for the finishing touch, separated some threads from a piece of Terracotta Tile Scalloped Linen Ribbon to tie in (like the pun?!) with the color block immediately above it.
I ALSO MADE AN EXTRA CLEAN & SIMPLE VERSION for my brand new SIMPLY STAMPS AND INK BLOG that went live TODAY – YAY!
Over there I am keeping it simple and will be showcasing clean & simple cards that are easy & quick to make and each will have a FREE PROJECT SHEET – including this card – so go grab yours for this card by clicking HERE!
