Falling Leaves

How has your weekend been going so far?  Today is the Super Bowl here in the states and that means I will have my crafting space entirely to myself since all the men folk in my house will be watching the game.  I treasure the time I am allowed in here alone since I share the space with my husband who is an avid computer gamer and my youngest fur baby who is a dog but gets in the window like a cat.

Yesterday on SCS the inspiration challenge was to review a Pintrest board and design a card inspired by it.  This board had some amazing items pinned on it and this is the one I chose:
and here is the card that resulted:

It is a very clean and simple one.  In fact it is too clean for my husband who does not care for all of the white space.  I found a scrap piece of #80 Neenah Solar White and placed some double sided adhesive on the back, swiped it with the three ink colors, and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Once the piece cooled I cut the sentiment out, peeled the backing off to reveal the adhesive and then placed it on my panel.

Supplies used:
Paper: #110 Neenah Solar White for base, #80 Neenah Solar White for focal panel;
Stamps: Penny Black Fancy Foliage;
Dies: Penny Black Wishes
Inks:  Mama Elephant Lollipop, Lemongrass, and Orangeade;


  1. I like the CAS look with these bright colors! Great job using the inspiration pic to guide your creativity.

  2. Very pretty- love your colors. That die is such an awesome touch too!

  3. I am DEFINITELY not afraid of a little white space - and this card is gorgeous! The colors and layout are beautiful, and I love that it is clearly inspired by that Pin, too!

    oxo your SCS groupie!

  4. I'm a huge fan of CAS, so I love it!! Tell hubby I said booo to him, LOL. White space has the ability to invoke serenity, which is particularly great with a sentiment like the one you chose. Well done! :)

  5. love the bright colors...makes me think of spring!

    1. Mission accomplished then because I definitely had spring on the mind when I was creating it. Thanks for stopping by.

  6. That candle is pretty!! I love what you did with it as inspiration for your card.. :)


Thank you so much for stopping by and sitting a spell with me.
