A Walk in the Park in Fall


Hello everyone! Today I got to play with the Sketch Challenge on SCS. It was fun using the Clear Dollar Stamp of the Month set called "A Walk in the Park". You can get this stamp for free from Clear Dollar Stamps. It's a very fun and versatile set with all individual elements so you can stamp the trunk brown, then the leaves whatever colors you want. I had done a spring themed one a few posts back so this time I decided to try a fall look. I used designer paper from Memory Box, the Twiggy Collection. I ran that through the Cuttlebug with the leaves embossing folder. I used Papertrey Dark Chocolate for my base and Old Olive run through the bug with the floral screen folder for my #2 panel. Instead of a third panel, I used Magic Mesh in bronze. I wanted an earthy feel so I added some 10 lb Hemp twine from Naturals, and Punched the fence with a Martha Stewart Edge Punch. The cute little brass corner treatment is also from the Clear Dollar Store. Love this fun set! I really have fun trying different layouts with all these little pieces!
I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! Thanks for taking a peek at my blog, and I hope you enjoyed my card.
