Well with my wish for cooler temps . . . Fall was the inspiration for this card with my never before inked Harvest Bear from T.A.C. and the little pumpkins are from my Happy Fall Y'all SU set. The colors are old olive, pumpkin pie and really rust with some BasicGrey DP thrown in. All of the sketches in this post are from the Anni-Verve-sary week from http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ this past week. They were lots of fun! :) Julee from Verve gave away a ton of goodies. I was a little jealous that I didn't win a set, but . . . ahh well, I still had a good time playing along.
This card also was created with a stamp that hasn't seen ink before. It is from the JustRite monogram set. I believe it is considered the 1 3/8 inch set. It was one of their early sets that I just had to snatch up before they were all sold out and the new ones in stock. I hadn't used it for months and months, but now I would love to add more to my collection. If you haven't seen them before, you gotta check them out. The dp is the pretty Bella Rose from Stampin Up and a little extra scrap of a darker red in the front that matched so well I couldn't resist.
Lastly, this set was made with the discontinued groovy guava and purely pomegranate papers and Riveting stamp set from Stampin Up. I was going to place an image in the center rectangle, but I just couldn't bring myself to cover up that pretty patterned paper. I also moved the ribbon up in the sketch challenge instead of leaving it at the bottom to cover my edge of the scalloped layer. It also has tiny half pearls on every other scallop, but later after the picture I decided to use them on each little scallop.
I hope you enjoyed all the photos, and I hope wherever you are, you are staying cool and comfy! :) If you would like to see what I created for the other 2 sketches, they will be showcased on the KL Stampin N Scrappin DT blog on Tuesday, August 18th, because they use Magnolia stamps! I hope to see you there!!
