The At Home with You and Colorful Seasons Bundles were shouting my name as the morning air is crisp and and the fall colors are beginning to show earlier than normal this year. I felt these bundles were perfect for this month’s SBTD Blog Hop Theme, Leaves and Trees. We are 12 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world bringing you assorted projects each month. Be sure to read all the way to the bottom of this post to watch a video about the At Home With You Bundle!
My card base is Very Vanilla cut to 5 1/4″ x 8″ and then scored at 4″. I used the leaves from the Colorful Seasons stamp set to create a background paper for the 1 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ paper strip. The colors I used for the leaves are Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Crushed Curry and Early Espresso for the veins. I backed this strip with a piece of 2″ x 5 1/4″ Early Espresso cardstock.
I felt the card needed more texture so I added the splatter image from Swirly Bird in Crushed Curry along the tip edge of the card and opposite corners of the image mat. The bouquet of sunflowers in the bucket from the At Home with You Bundle was my inspiration for my card and make the perfect focal point. Sunflowers are my favorite fall flower and I continued the color theme when water coloring them. The bucket is colored using Crumb Cake for the bucket and Smokey Slate for the metal rings. I added a bit of sparkle by adding Clear Wink of Stella to the rings. I then cut the image out using the Seasonal Layer Thinlit Dies, gotta love thilits! I then popped the image up with our new Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I felt the image needed grounding so I cut a branch from Early Espresso by using the die from the Colorful Seasons Bundle. The Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive 1/4″ Stitch Ribbon are a perfect touch.
The verse I chose is also one from the Colorful Seasons stamp set however, the At Home with You set also has verses that could be used for this card that can be used for an assortment of fall occasions.
