Stampin' Up! Gilded Autumn Die Cut Leaf Thanks Card for the Stamper's Showcase September Blog Hop

Welcome to the September 2020 Stamper's Showcase Blog Hop!  This month we have a Fall/Autumn Theme which I love because Fall is my favorite season.  The leaves are quickly changing colors and beginning to fall from the trees here in upstate NY.  
For this card I created a fun faux wooden leaf inlay by die cutting the maple leaf from the the Gathered Leaves Dies out of the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper and placing it over a piece of woodgrain paper from the In Good Taste paper pack.  I then die cut the "thanks" using the Well Written dies and adhered it over the leaf.  I then added a sprinkle of Gilded Gems for a bit of sparkle.
Cajun Craze Card Base:  5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
Woodgrain DSP:  4" x 5 1/4"
Gilded Autum DSP:  3 3/4" x 5"
Cajun Craze "Thanks":  1" x 2"

Stampin' Up! Field Journal Card for the Creative Cardiology Team Color Challenge Blog Hop


Welcome to our Creative Card-iology Team September Blog Hop!  This month we're sharing projects inspired by the Color Challenge photo below.  The original photo was of our team member Kim's fun cardigan sweater, and it had some many fabulous colors in it we decided it would be great to use as creative inspiration.
I pulled out the Field Journal stamp set and decided to feature each of the three critters in an array of scalloped circles of different sizes and colors.  I had a concept in mind to arrange a trio of circles on my cardfront and I was quite please that my card actually came to life just as I had envisioned.  
Between the various colors of cardstock and the fun Holiday Rhinestone Gems sprinkled around the cardfront I think I used just about every color from the Color Challenge image!  I contemplated coloring the stamped images with my Stampin' Blends but then decided against it as I thought it might appear a bit too busy.  I think I like the black and white.  What do you think?  Here's a closer look for you:
