Stampin' Up! French Foliage & Curly Cute
It's time for the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge. This week it's Pumpkin Pie, Lucky Limeade, and Elegant Eggplant. What a wonderful fall palette! But this wasn't the ONLY fall project I've taken on. I decided to change rooms and revamp my crafting space. I have been told by some people that they feel I enjoy organzing my craft supplies more than actually using them. While that may be true, I am surely looking forward to completing this project so I can get back to creating on a regular basis. Look for some progress pictures in the days to come!

Putting It Together Tips:
- Creating your own designer series paper is as easy as having the correct tools!
- To create the background for this autumn card, start by stamping each leaf style in its own color. Be sure to stamp images off the edge of the paper to give the illuision that the pattern continues.
- Start with the largest leaf and finish with the smallest leaf.
- Next, using the Color Spritzer, apply the two lightest colors to fill in the open Very Vanilla card stock space.
- Finish off your masterpiece by applying the warm color, Pumpkin Pie, to the edges using a Sponge Dauber. Using a circular motion, start off the Very Vanilla card stock and color the edge. Starting off the edge eliminates the danger of a blotch of intense color.
- To accent the Happy Birthday, I used Confetti leaves across the entire sentiment. This reduced the starkness of the contrast. I also edged the Framelit die cut using a Sponge Dauber and the technique described above. Finally I used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack to create a border around the die cut.
- The Framelit mat was created by cutting a rectangle 1 3/4'' x 3 1/4'' out of Elegant Eggplant. Then I trimmed one of the other Framelit die cuts from the same set to accent the tabs on the end.
- While I certainly like polka dots on ribbon, the dots on THIS ribbon were just too much. So I flipped it over for a more subtle look.
