If you arrived here from, Giovana's blog, you're in the right place!
If not, you'll want to go back to StampTV so you won't miss a thing! :)

Blog Hop Details:
With fall just around the corner, how about this color combo:
  • Orange (Sweet Mango or Pumpkin Spice)
  • Red (Cranberry Tart, Rocket Red, or Red Hot)
  • Brown (Chocolate, Tan Leather, Kraft, Soft Sand
  • ONE Neutral Color from the following: White or Ivory
I love this color combo so much that I made a bookmark and 2 cards!

When I first bought this stamp set, I had no idea I would be using it with autumn colors. I'm glad I tried it with this challenge because I love the look.

GKD Stamp Set: Botanicals
GKD Cardstock: cranberry tart, sweet mango

SU ink: crumb cake, peach parfait, cherry cobbler, chocolate chip
SU ribbon: riding hood red & kraft taffeta ribbon
Other: eyelet



This is the simpler of the two card designs ~ "Happy for You"

GKD Stamp Set: Autumn Beauty (Illustrator - Theresa Momber)
GKD Stamp Set 4 the sentiment: Botanicals
GKD Cardstock: cranberry tart

SU Cardstock: close to cocoa
SU designer paper: Sweet & Sour Specialty
SU ink: peach parfait, cherry cobbler
Other: circle punches, eyelets, Offray ribbon, Copic markers


I just happened to run across this matching Prima flower by mistake when looking for brads. Why it was with the brads is a mystery to me. LOL! The side of the cart is popped up on a thin dimensional, the bottom left pumpkin is popped up with a thin dimensional, and the bottom center pumpkin is popped up on a thick dimensional.

GKD Stamp Set: Autumn Beauty (Illustrator - Theresa Momber)
GKD Cardstock: cranberry tart, sweet mango

SU: chocolate chip cardstock, creamy caramel ink (for sponging), Lattice embossing folder, word window, modern label, and scallop border punches, whisper white taffeta ribbon
Other: Prima flower, brads, unknown gingham ribbon
