SHOPPING OUR STASH #172: It's The Most Colorful Time Of The Year!

Good morning and welcome to a new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH! It's officially Autumn, and with the leaves starting to turn, we want you to create a card or project using fall colors: red, orange, rust, yellow, brown, gold, etc. Here's my take on this challenge:

(Oops, forgot to take a pic of the inside. It says Happy Thanksgiving.)

I was lucky enough to win this entire collection a couple years ago, and I still think it's one of my favorites to date. (because I hoard it, and rarely use it!) I used just a bit of dp, and some of the dimensional stickers. So quick and easy to do! My card is based off of CTS#95.

 Now it's your turn! Just link your card or project up at Shopping Our Stash! Don't forget to check out what my teammies created for your viewing pleasure, and leave them some bloggy love! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that you have a great day!


Stamps: Hero Arts - Celebrate Everyday
Ink: Staz On - Jet Black
DP & stickers:  American Crafts - Night Fall collection
CS: Recollections (kraft); Bazzill (orange)
Accessories: Fiskars - corner rounder
Adhesives: SA by eL - MyStik permanent, 3D foam squares

What a cutie patootie this is, Chris! That little scarecrow makes me smile, and I love the leaf print paper, too. The kraft base with the rounded corners looks fabulous with the warm yellow. So perfect for fall!
