{Playing With Color}



Good Morning Friends! Today I am finishing off my World Card Making Day Celebration by posting a colorful card I created to celebrate the much anticipated arrival of Fall. This time of year is my very favorite time of year, and soon Christmas card making will in full swing. I can't wait! To create my car I used a brand new set I just received (yesterday) from Hot Off The Press called "Bold Patterns". I bought it from HSN and it was on sale so I suggest going there to check out some of the clearance because they have some really good prices on some nice stuff! I stamped my border stamp in 4 different color of A Muse Studio ink, Orange, Grass, Papaya, and French Roast. They stamp beautifully with clear stamps and I was extremely pleased with the end result. I added twine, and rosette and leaf I created using a metal die set from Marianne Design, and a button from A|S. Today I am playing along with this weeks Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge - Thick Chipboard Accents. I only have a set of Christmas PTI's dies and truthfully I'm just not ready to start posting Christmas cards yet so I used my Marianne Design dies that seemed to do the trick. It is difficult to see from the picture but the leaf has several layers that I glued together with Tombo Multi glue. I used my sanding block to rough up the edges a bit. I must say that I love the way it turned out and have many more ideas on creating thick chipboard accents! I hope that you enjoyed the cards I posted for WCMD, and just in-case you missed it I am giving away some A Muse Studio goodies and more info can be found by visiting this post:
