HSS Fall Theme Challenge #84


Can you believe the first week of Fall is almost over? Here in So. Cal we did get a break from the heat, in fact we had brief showers on Saturday, but now it's back to the heat. Well in hopes of some cooler weather, the challenge this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments is to create something with a Fall theme.


I started with a More Mustard base and ran it through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. Next I added a distressed piece of Spice Cake Designer Series Paper (I am LOVING this paper!) Soft Suede was scallop edge punched and layered on top with a piece of Very Vanilla added to the top. The leaves were stamped in Pool Party, More Mustard and Soft Suede onto their coordinating card stock color and cut out. These were adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals for added depth.


The saying (and leaf images) are from the Falling Leaves set. Isn't it perfect for the Fall holidays? The sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede. And to finish it off a piece of Baja Breeze seam binding was tied in a bow around the bottom.

*By the way, Falling Leaves also comes digitally {127403} as does the Spice Cake Paper Collection {125610}

I love this! I love how the texture from the folder mimics the design in the DSP! The torn edge is perfect too and that is one of my all time favorite sets!
