FALL IS IN THE AIR  with Fun Stampers Journey die cuts, inks, cardstocks. …..and, another Can You Case It? challenge.  We have a color challenge this week but for me, it was not an easy one.  The challenge is for a rainbow of colors, although Eva said “no rainbows”  🙂 .  I thought about the whole spectrum of color for a while and then realized I did not have to use every color.  Whew!  That made it easier.  So with fall in the air…I used fall colors.cyci-139

This is a great way to use up small scraps of card stock.  I cut scraps into 1/2″ strips and adhered them to a piece of paper. I used my Journey Circle dies to cut a circle out of the center.  Do you ever have happy accidents when stamping.  That is what happened.  The two dies shifted when I went to cut them out so that the circle was wider on one side and skinnier on the other.  I liked it!!! This wonky circle is where my rainbow of colors come in.

If you follow my blog you know I use the SnapShot Frames Die A LOT!!!!!   For this card I used the leaves and the Fall sentiment from this set.  I die cut leaves out of Buttercream CS and sponged colors on them.  I always begin with the lightest color first, and then layer darker colors. You can see the order of colors I used on the leaves below. The first leaf just has Pineapple Smoothie ink in the center.  Orange Creamsicle ink was added to the 2nd leaf, then Rasberry Berry, still on outer edges of the leaf, and then on the 4th leaf, Cocoa Powder ink was added to outside edges.




For the Fall sentiment  I used the same colors and layered from top to bottom, light to dark,  but left off the Coco Powder ink.fall-rain-leaves-close

I sponged around the edges of the Pineapple Smoothie rectangle with Tangerine Fusion Ink.  As Richard always says…”When in doubt, POP it out”.  I popped the fall sentiment and the leaves out with Journey foam squares.  For the embellishment, I colored the edges of the wooden button with Tangerine Fusion Ink and tied a bow with our journey Twine.
