ColourQ 50 & Mojo Monday 156


Hi there!  I hope you're having a relaxing Saturday.  I'm just popping in while my son is napping, and then we're going to go pick some apples.  What do you have planned?

I didn't want this week's ColourQ challenge to pass me by, so I paired it up with the Mojo Monday sketch to make this fall inspired card.


I couldn't wait to try out my new Fall Fest stamps from Practicing Creativity.  This set has some fabulous, graphic leaf images that are great for focal points or background stamping.  I chose my favorite image for the main panel, and a second image to stamp in white onto the Peach Parfait strip.  The sentiment is also from the Fall Fest set, and it has a fun, quirky font.

The finishing touches include polka dots and woodgrain from PTI impression plates, Versamark stamped polka dots, and stitching (of course!).  I love the end result!

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz), Papertrey Ink (white)
Stamps:  Practicing Creativity (Fall Fest), Papertrey Ink (Polka Dot Basics)
Ink:  Martha Stewart (Butternut Squash), Jo-Ann (white), Versamark, Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Polka Dot and Woodgrain impression plates), EK Success (border punch)
Accessories:  Michaels (ribbon, pearls), Papertrey Ink (jute twine), thread

Thanks so much for stopping by, friends!  Have a great day!
