Chevron Fall Card

Standard

While perusing Pinterest (one of my guilty pleasures!) I came across the coolest technique–how to fold strips of DSP into chevrons–and I couldn’t wait to try it out!  It’s no secret that this is my favorite time of year, and the cooler temperatures are making me reach for the fall themed stamps and papers!

I had a discussion on Facebook about the new Tangelo Twist ink, since that was what was included in last month’s Paper Pumpkin kit.  I had not used the ink before, and one of my customers was not happy about how “muddy” it looked.  I was curious, so I tried it out–here it is compared to our other orange inks–it is definitely different!

Happy Fall!

Standard

I LOVE this time of year!  It hasn’t started to cool off much here in the south, but there are a few leaves turning colors, and I am planning to pull out my Fall/Halloween decorations this weekend, so naturally when I sat down to make a card this evening, I used some of my new goodies!  I was about halfway into making the card when I realized that the base was upside down!  Aargh!  I hate it when that happens!  Fortunately it was pretty easy to pull it apart and put it on a new base.

I stuck with just two colors for this one.  I had planned to do a monochromatic card, but I like this combo!  This is not a card that I would want to mass produce because of the fussy cutting of the leaves!  I really wanted to incorporate those cute acorns, but there was just no room.  I stamped off the background, and freehand cut the banner!
