Stampin’ Up! Wood Words & Painted Autumn DSP Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, well my title for this blog is a mouth full, LOL.  I let the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper do most of the work on my card today. I added one stamp from Wood Words to get at least a little stamping in for my card.  Today was a color challenge using Black, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie.  With those colors I had to do a fall card and the paper worked beautifully with the color challenge.

When I have an idea for a card, I never know what I am going to end up with.  Here is another version of the same design using more stamps from Wood Words and the Wood Plank Embossing folder instead of the Designer Series Paper that I used in the first card.  Which one do you like best?  I made a third card too.  It did not match the colors for this challenge so I will be posting that card on another day.  Don’t you just love it when yo get so many different looks from the same design and stamp set!

Stampin’ Up! Merry Cafe and Coffee Cafe Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Well September is here and we are all very ready for some rain here in the Pacific NW.  We are having horrible fires just east of us in the Columbia River Gorge. We need rain to help put out the horrible fires that are burning.  We are under a air quality alert with thick smoke and now ash from the fires is falling in the area too.  The news advised us all to stay inside, so today I played in my stamping room and created this fall card for you.  Today was a color challenge, Crushed Curry, Garden Green and Early Espresso. These colors are perfect for my fall gift card holder for the  share today.
