Fall Fest! CCMC330

Hello!  Today we have a very colorful combination for our Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  The In Colors of Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist and Blackberry Bliss make for a delicious creative combo!  Yum!


I love these pumpkins from the Fall Fest set and the Fun Fall Framelits to die cut them in a snap!  I thought I might be about to put them away to work on Christmas but they were just too perfect for these colors.  I made a card that could be used for a personal thank you note or for a Thanksgiving card to let someone know how grateful you are for them.


The pumpkins were inked with Hello Honey then the edge sponged with Tangelo Twist before stamping.  The "thanks" stamp was sponged in the center with Tangelo Twist then the edges with Blackberry Bliss; where the colors overlapped gave a lovely bronze-like color and when the pumpkins were added, you really don't even see the pure Tangelo Twist. Hmm.  This layer was added to layers of Tangelo Twist and Hello Honey.


The "Thankful for" was diecut with the Bitty Banners and backed with a Blackberry Bliss diecut banner which was cut in half and added to the back. Some Blendability-colored Rhinestones add the final touch.

Stamps:  Fall Fest (pumpkins), Seasonally Scattered (background), Truly Grateful (sentiment)
Inks:  Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, Blackberry Twist. 
Papers:  Moonlight DSP Stack; Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, Blackberry Twist, Whisper White cardstocks
Accessories:  Rhinestones, Fun Fall Framelits, Bitty Banner Framelits, Stampin' Sponges, Blackberry Bliss Ribbon
