Welcome back to our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenges. We have a beautiful fall cake for our inspiration today!
PICK OF THE PATCH
I love the barrels of leaves and pumpkins in the inspiration cake and wondered how I could recreate that look! I found the fence in the Bag of Bones Dies and used a couple of them on my card!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Crumb Cake cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Early Espresso cardstock was added on top.
- A 3/4 x 3-7/8 piece of All About Autumn DSP was added to the bottom of a 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. The greeting was stamped with Early Espresso Ink.
- Two fences were cut from Crumb Cake cardstock using the Bag of Bones Die. They were adhered together overlapping one of the posts. The SU100 Stampin’ Blends was used to color the banding along the top and bottom of the fence. It was adhered to the Very Vanilla just tucking the bottoms of the posts under the DSP.
- The large pumpkin was stamped with Pumpkin Pie Ink and the smaller pumpkin with Cajun Craze Ink, the leaves with Cajun Craze, Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry Inks, the stems with Garden Green Ink on Very Vanilla cardstock. They were punched with the Pick of the Patch Punch or hand-cut as needed and assembled below the fence with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
So glad this worked out as I pictured in my head! OK…check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
