My second challenge entry this month is #10. I used the Pop Out Sunburst stamp and Apricot ink for all of the rays except the last 2 I used Clementine ink. I like how using the 2 inks gives the background an organic look. After cutting out the inked panel with the matching die, I added the circle element using the Painted Peony washi tape. The sentiment is taken from the Joyful Bouquet stamp set. Thank you for hosting the monthly challenge. 💖

My first challenge entry this month is #4. I started with an A2 size piece of kraft paper. Using the Diamond Plaid stencil I ink blended the panel with Clementine, such a pretty orange. Next I put the Modern Layered Floral stamp in my Misti and used various ink colors on each layer. I really love the fall look of this card just by incorporating the brown and orange inks. I appreciate these monthly challenges as it is the starting inspiration for lots of fun and pretty projects. Thanks! 💖

For my card today, I used the Pinkfresh Studio Full Bloom Stamp and die colored with Copic markers to use the specific colors in this month’s challenge. The Ornate Oval frame die was cut from Silver metallic cardstock twice. The slimline card was cut from a piece of Neenah Bright White cardstock to 9″ × 8″ and then folded to measure 9″ × 4″. I then blended Distress Oxide in Peacock Feathers to the front. The title was cut from the Pinkfresh Studio Phase Builder: Happy Die Set which really is so helpful for all of my holiday titles. The shadow is cut from orange vellum to stay with the fall theme. I arranged all the pieces to balance the card after cutting the bloom in half. Hope you enjoy it! Thanks for fall inspiration for my card!

I love everything about Autumn, but especially the crisp clean air and bright blue skies. That was the inspiration for my layout. Great challenge, thank you.
