Crafty Challenge September Blog Hop Color Inspiration

Welcome to the Crafty Challenge Blog Hop as we explore this month's wonderful color challenge using Bermuda Bay, Merry Merlot and Cajun Craze. With today being the first day of Fall, I think these colors are perfect for creating a Fall themed card design. 
For my card design today, I decided to pair the Textures & Frames stamp set with the In Your Words stamp set to create a warm Fall themed card design. Both of these stamp sets are exclusive during Sale-a-bration and can be earned as a free reward. I love the abstract designs in the Textures & Frames stamp set and chose several of the images to create the designs for this card. I also added Copper, Gold and Silver to help step up the design.

This card design was so much fun to create and I love the way these colors work together. I love how the metallic embossing powders helped step up the background design for the focal layer and the Copper detailed leaf adds a wonderful finishing touch to the card design. The Textures & Frames stamp set has so many amazing images that are perfect for creating fun background designs. I used the splotch image to create a tone on tone look for the Cajun Craze cardstock layer. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the Bermuda Bay cardstock layer and the sentiment label to add dimension to the design. The Linen Thread bow is the only embellishment that I added to the design as I felt that the embossing and the Copper foil added enough bling without overwhelming the card. 
This wonderful Fall themed card design would work well for a variety of occasions and would make a great masculine card design. I had so much fun creating with this beautiful color combination and can't wait to try creating more card designs with them. There are so many wonderful possibilities to explore.
