CCMC476 Colorful Seasons

It’s time for another challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary.  We have a fun sketch for you to try this week!  Our Challenge Team did some FABULOUS things with it!



With the trees starting to change colors and fall in our neighborhood, I was inspired to pull out the Colorful Seasons stamp set and make some of my own leaves!


A while back I had made up a sheet of fall colors by sponging ink on glossy cardstock.  I cut a couple leaves out earlier with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, but still had room to cut a few more.   They were perfect for this sketch!  Here are the details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Cajun Craze cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
  • A 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Early Espresso was decorated with 1-1/2 wide piece of Painted Autumn DSP, then a 1/2 wide strip of the other pattern on top diagonally.
  • A Stitched Layer circle was cut from Very Vanilla, stamped with the greeting from Colorful Seasons and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Two leaves stamped with Basic Black on the inked glossy cardstock and cut with the Thinlits were adhered to the bottom of the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • A piece of the Copper Trim was opened/frayed, tied in a knot, then added to the top of the leaves.


SO simple, but has a lot of impact, I think!  OK…check out the rest of the Challenge Team’s ideas over on Create with Connie and Mary.  Plus check out the September Mini Session details…full of ideas using the Holiday Catalog!
