This week at Sugar Creek Hollow for our #32 challenge we are Giving Thanks for Autumn!
Your shabby chic/vintage themed card or project needs to use Autumn colors and if you so desire, it can be a Thanksgiving one. I decided to use both for my card and altered canister.
I love all...well, most of my creations, but once in a great while one comes along that I just love beyond reason and this is one of those.
I am such a huge fan of Autumn and the rich, beautiful colors associated
with this season that I think this challenge just called to me.
I will warn you that I took several pictures!
These papers from Prima's Reflections pad are so beautiful.
I added some additional stamping with a retired Stampin' Up set Country Blessings and flourishes from a Studio 112 set with distress inks in Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain.
After cutting a window in the design paper, I took another piece of the rust textured card stock that I used as my card base and cut a scalloped oval to place behind my opening. The sentiment was stamped in Walnut Stain on the original piece cut out of the design paper. I layered these and used foam dots to make my frame. The leaves were cut with a Martha Stewart punch and Spellbinders dies. Love the way they look out of that book print paper from the pad.
While making this card the other day and enjoying the cool Fall air, I happened to use the
last of a canister of cocoa......so my thoughts turned to altering it.
I used some of the same papers from Prima to cover the can and decorate the top.
I plan to use this as decoration in my own home.
Hope you have enjoyed my Autumn projects and it has inspired you to join
us this week at Sugar Creek Hollow.
We would love to see you and your cards.
