#plunge1 – Hello Fall

By | October 1, 2014

Happy Wednesday, almost halfway through the week. Tonight is a big night here in Pittsburgh, the Pirates are playing a wild card baseball game – if they win they start the climb to the World Series, I wish them luck! The team has asked for a ‘black out’ (wear black shirts to the game),  I will be wearing by black polka dot jammies as I watch the game tonight. LOL.

Now on to todays card,  I came across a new blog, The Paper Plunge and thought I would give it a try. This is their very first challenge. Fall is in the air, and the rich colors of autumn are on our minds!  They asked that you create a fall project – card, scrapbook page or 3D item to play!  The card I came up we made this past Sunday with my Sunday Stampers Class where each person was able to use the stamp set to create their own stamped image from the For All Things stamp set.

For the card, I decided I wanted to highlight the Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper and use some cool accents.  The card base is Soft Suede and the layers of designer series paper are matted on Cajun Craze and popped up with Stampin Dimensionals.  In between the layers is a piece of Burlap Ribbon frayed at the ends for texture. The focal image is stamped on Very Vanilla in Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow using the For All Things stamp set.  There is a gold metal button in the corner tied with a piece of linen thread. All supplies are from Stampin’ Up!
