The Card Concept Challenge - Colourful Autumn/Fall

Welcome to my very first challenge as a designer for The Card Concept! We're a fortnightly (bi-weekly) challenge blog that publishes a photo as an inspiration starter for your creativity.

Here's the photo for challenge #159, the theme for which is Colourful Fall/Autumn.

Everyone is welcome to play along, we simply ask that you state in your blog post which element/s of the photo inspired you and which design style you chose to use (you can combine more than one and don't worry, the different styles are explained on our website).

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned many times before that autumn is my favourite time of year as I love the colours of the leaves as they turn, so it will be no surprise that they were the inspiration for my clean and layered card. I also used three of the colours plus a couple more to give a warm, rich palette. Here's my offering:

Materials used:
  • stamps - Mocha Fall Girl (Stamping Bella)
  • card - basic white, early espresso, Autumn Spice papers (Your Paper Stash)
  • other - stitched rectangle die, Big Shot, small banner punch, button die, thread, Copic markers, craft foam, MISTI

My image was stamped on white card and coloured with Copic markers, and I stamped a second image to cut out a few more leaves as extras. Designer paper layers are matted and raised and I punched a small banner accent to tie it all together. The button is a die too, two layers cut from white and coloured with markers to match, then threaded with twine. 

Do follow this link to The Card Concept blog to see what gorgeous cards my fellow team members have created for you, and of course we'd love it if you play along!

Thanks for stopping by.
