Fancy Friday – Color Me Autumn

I am so excited to be able to share with you this month’s project with for our Fancy Friday monthly hop!  If you just came over from the amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop.  My friends and I want to be able to share with you our ideas in a monthly format.  We will use different themes each month – sometimes colors, sometimes a sketch, sometimes a stamp set focus.  The one thing you can count on is that it will be fancy!  Over the last year “fancy” became our word to describe the best projects, the best new clothes, even the best pedicure colors.  Now we want to share with you our take on “fancy” each month.  This month we are focusing our creative energy on Designer Series Paper.  You know them, you love them….how could we create without them??!!

FF Oct - Give Thanks

I continue to be completely in love with this Color Me Autumn DSP so I thought I should share a card that lets the paper do most of the work!  In fact the paper is used for almost everything.  I started with this pretty diamond pattern as a background and cut it to cover the whole cad front.  Then I wrapped a Tea Lace Doily around the edge before adhering it to the base.  I cut a strip of this Blackberry Bliss striped paper to about 2″ wide and punched it with my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and rounded the corners with my Corner Rounder Punch.  The leaves were cut from the DSP print.  I took a Basic Wooden Element banner and stamped it with the sentiment from And Many More with Soft Suede ink.  The little clothespin is one I have left from a kit (unnamed because I had it in with other stuff….sorry).  I sponged all the edges with Crumb Cake ink and then tied on a piece of Daffodil Delight Seam Binding that had been spritzed with water and dried with the low setting of my Heat Tool.

So I thought it would be fun to give out a little blog candy.
