Addicted to Stamps and More #166

Hi there

There's a new weekly challenge just starting over at Addicted to Stamps and More and this week we're back with our easiest theme of all...

Anything Goes

So, whether you are creating cards for Halloween, perhaps an autumn birthday or generally just getting your stash of Christmas cards together, it can be linked up here.

Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Sweet Pea Stamps and the prize up for grabs is 4 digis from the store.

There is lots of fabulous inspiration over at ATSM created by my Design Teamies this week, and all very different.  As I still had some autumn theme stash on my table (yes, I haven't cleaned up again!) I decided to make another seasonal card to share with you...

This was super simple to make with just two stamps.  I stamped the leaf in five different autumn colours along the edge of the white cardstock panel and then stamped the sentiment in a darker ink.  The panel was then adhered to the base on 3D foam strips and I finally added some smooth gemstones to add a little bit of interest.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Stylish Flowers; MFT - Brushstroke Birthday
  • Ink: Versa Color - Bark, Bamboo, Paprika. Umber, Khaki, Pinecone
  • Gems from stash

I am also going to link this card up at the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly Challenge - Two by Two (two different stamps)
CASology - Week 168 - 'You'
My Time to Craft - Challenge #306 - Autumnal Colours
Stamping Sensations - October Challenge - Colours of Autumn
Time Out Challenges - Challenge #41 - 'Autumn...the year's last, loveliest smile'

Yesterday I picked up a horrible bug but hopefully, by the time this post goes live, I will be asleep.  If not, I'm armed with tissues, honey and lemon and plenty to dose me up to get me through the night.  Urghh, I hate it, I think Rudolph will be making an early appearance with all this nose blowing, my poor snout is sore already! 

I hope to see you in the gallery this week as it's an easy peasy challenge.

Bye for now x
