Kre8tors October Blog Hop Fall

Welcome to the Kre8tors October Blog Hop featuring Fall as our theme this month. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world as we showcase wonderful products that will help you create your own fun Fall projects. I hope that you will enjoy what we have to share this month.
 My inspiration for today's Fall themed card comes from the beautiful Come To Gather Designer Series Paper (item #150454) in the 2019 Holiday Catalog. I fell in love with this beautiful pumpkin design and loved the Pretty Peacock accents. I decided to use Crumb Cake cardstock for the card base and used a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock to matte the piece of designer series paper. The combination of Pretty Peacock, Crumb Cake and Copper is not exactly traditional for Fall, but I really love how they go together.
 To add texture to the card base, I embossed it using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder (item #149634) and then gently sponged the background with Crumb Cake Classic ink to bring out the script detail. 
The sentiment I chose is from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set (item #151407), an old favorite of mine, and I heat embossed it using Copper Embossing powder onto Pretty Peacock cardstock. I die cut the sentiment using one of the dies from the Ornate Frames Dies (item #150664) and layered it onto the detailed label die cut from Copper Foil with the coordinating die from the same die set.
To assemble the card, I added a piece of 1/4" Copper Trim (item #144179) across the center of the designer series paper panel, teasing out the trim a little to give a loose weave look. I attached the sentiment over the top of the copper trim with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. For the finishing touch, I added Basic Pearls that I colored with the Light Pretty Peacock Stampin' Blends Marker, to the top and bottom of the card base, above and below the designer series paper panel. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my Fall card design will help you to explore creating projects with non-traditional Fall colors. If you live in the U.S. and do not already have a demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to help you.
