Stampin Up “Acorny Thank You” Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Welcome Stampers to The Happy Stampers weekly blog hop.  Each Thursday our group will be sharing a project with you. Some hops are sketch challenges and some are color challenges.  This week was a color challenge. We used Old Olive, Rich Razzelberry and Soft Suede.  I hope you enjoy the cards today. It will be fun to see how each person used the color combination.  Enjoy each blog as you hop to each post.


Acorny Thank You Fall Card:

Today I received my inspiration for the color challenge using the beautiful DSP from Stampin Up called ” Into The Woods”  It was perfect because it fit right into the color pallet of our challenge using, Old Olive, Rich Razzelberry and Soft Suede.

The leaves are Old Olive stamped with Mossy Meadow and Rich Razzelberry stamped in Blackberry bliss.  I added a white bakers twine bow for added dimension.

After I  stamped the banner with the ink to rubber technique using my ink pens in Old Olive and Rich Razzelberry, I added a gold button  and more white bakers twine.  Notice the touch of gold on the leaves, a bit of Dazzling Details finished the detail on the leaves and ties the gold to the rest of the card.

Inside the card and the envelope:

I have to add a touch to the inside of the card, it is such a surprise when you open a card and the design is carried throughout the project.

Stamping the envelope is so fun too.  It gives the person getting the card a sneak peek as to what might be inside.  I love that element of surprise.

    Love it, Kristi! The Woodland background really adds the perfect touch of texture without taking away from the oh-so-cute focal artwork. Great job! 🙂
