Labor Day Weekend VCMP!

 
Hello and welcome to my blog.  It's an honor to be a hostess for one of the VCMP challenges.  I hope you have been enjoying being creative, and just maybe you have learned something new along the way.  Since I live in Fort Worth, Texas, I always look forward to Fall.  It comes a little later here then when I lived in Wisconsin and Minnesota.  So my challenge for you is to create a card with a Fall theme, but not a Thanksgiving card.  Use a leaf motif with fall colors - rusts, yellows, golds, red, dark greens, etc.  As you can see below, Sketch #64 is what I chose.  Your card can be an I Love You or I Miss You card, or even a Thinking About You or Thank You.  Can't wait to see what you create!  Have Fun!


My card is created with the Emboss Resist technique.  The leaves were embossed with Pewter embossing powder first onto Vanilla cardstock.  Then the colors are sponged in a random pattern.  The 3.5 x 4.75 panel was put on a Cajun Craze panel and then mounted on a Midnight Muse card.  All products are from Stampin' Up. 

Don't forget to link up your beautiful card with the inlinkz thingy
down below.  And keep on stamping!

  2. Very pretty sample! The emboss, resist technique is one I don't do often but it really is a stunning effect. Perfect for fall with the rich colors and the bit of shin that the embossing adds. Thanks for hosting a challenge on the VCMP this weekend!

  13. What a lovely card! Great challenge too as autumn is my favorite time of year. Too bad spring doesn't immediately follow it though!
