overwhelmed...

Hello friends!!! On Monday I had a short post about the new challenge going on over at the Penny Black blog.  Each day this week a new color combo has been revealed on the blog.  The final color combo was revealed today and I have made a card using that combo. 


Even though the Penny Black challenge is all about Christmas I decided to make a fall card as the combo just said "fall" to me.  The layout for the card is based on the current sketch from Sketchbook Saturday.  I started with a kraft card stock base and added a layer of mustard yellow card stock (Stampin Up! More Mustard) that had the edges distressed.  I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Crate Paper Farmhouse 6x6 pad, distressed the edges and layered it on top of the mustard card stock.  A piece of kraft card stock was cut and stamped with one of the leaf images from the Penny Black set Foliage Fancy using VersaMark Champagne Dazzle ink.  Some cream twine was added to the piece and it was adhered to the card stock piece as shown.  The Foliage Fancy set has three different leaf images.  Each image comes in a solid and outline form.  The solid images were stamped first using different combinations of the following inks, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Real Rust, Real Red and Chocolate (all Stampin Up!) and the rock and roll technique.  Once all the solid images were stamped I overstamped each image with the corresponding outline image.  All three were trimmed out and some Old Paper Distress ink was applied.  I layered the images using various heights of foam dimensionals.  The sentiment (also from Foliage Fancy) was stamped on a banner cut with one of the banner die from the Penny Black Tagged die set, inked with Old Paper distress ink and added to the card. 

If you made it this far I have one more thing to share.   Today I have a blog post over on the CardMaker blog.  I'm sharing one of my favorite paper crafting tips.  I hope you will check it out and
