PPA 115 Fashion Inspiration Fall/Thanksgiving

Hello, and Happy Thursday! It's Pals Paper Arts inspiration day! Today, our Fashion Inspiration segment features "Fall/Thanksgiving" themes. I know that green is not usually a traditional fall color, but Stampin' Up's Spice Cake (very FALL!) designer series paper has more to offer than your regular orange and brown! It includes Pool Party, Early Espresso and also Garden Green.

  • My card is made up of a Very Vanilla base, with an Early Espresso matte.
  • Next, I cut two stripsof 3-3/4 x 1-1/2" prints from the Spice Cake designer series paper.
  • Each of the strips were bordered with a Scallop Border punched piece of Garden Green card stock.

  • Centered on top of those strips, I used a Crumb Cake Perfect Pennants circle and slid it behind my Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake Beautiful Wings Embosslit butterflies. The small butterfly received "bling" with some Basic Rhinestones. Behind the large butterfly, I used my Paper Piercing Tool to poke a little design into the Crumb Cake circle on top and bottom.

  • Lastly, I added "gratitude" stamped in Crumb Cake onto Whisper White from Fabulous Phrases. I punched it out with the Word Window Punch and then added an Early Espresso Modern Label punched border. Two Mini Brads in silver flank the sentiment.
  • Both elements in the center are popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals.
