Autumn theme challenge

Card: early expresso, old olive, crumb cake, very vanilla, autumn spice DSP

Stamp: so many thanks, lovely as a tree

Ink: early expresso, crumb cake marker

Other: early expresso 1-1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon, sponge, 2-step bird extra-large punch

I had the chance to enjoy some creative time with another demonstrator over the weekend, and we had fun using each other's products - that's the beauty of being in a team; if you don't have something, you can ask around and you can get to play with things you haven't got!

Anyway, I pulled this card together for the challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments, using some of the product that my fellow-demonstrator had. The bird punch is very cool, and the Lovely as a tree stamp set is gorgeous! The challenge was to create a project that was inspired by autumn, or fall. I love autunm and the amazing colours of the season, so this challenge was a no-brainer to enter.


  1. Very well co-ordinated card, Anna. Another great colour combo! Your card looks even better in real life!

  2. Thanks for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments! I love your card! All the layers are great and I love the way you used the ribbon, it's a bit chunky but it can add so much to a card! Love it!

  3. Love all the greens on this card. That stamp is perfect. Thanks for reminding me that I have it. Thanks for joining us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments!

  6. Great Card Anna- you've done well to create the autumn feel when we've got spring on the way ;-) Debi x

  7. Anna, love the branches from the 2 step bird punch and the Lovely As A Tree images. That striped grosgrain ribbon is the perfect border accent. Thank you for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
