ODBDSLC #175 - Fall

Happy Tuesday everyone!! The Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge is to create a fall card, please join us here for all of the details.

I wanted to make something today that wasn't my traditional fall orange, so I went to my designer paper scrap box, it's full of great ideas. I found this muted yellow dp and pulled out the Stampin Up Summer Starfruit cs for the base. I have to admit that I've been a little bit obsessed with reverse embossing lately, and for today's card I inked up my embossing folder with white pigment ink and embossed black card stock to make a strip across the middle, keeping my leaf bouquet small to show it off. I'm loving this sweet ODBD squirrel image and watercolored him in warm rust after heat embossing and framing him and the sentiment with Spellbinder dies. Under the seam binding bow I used a couple of the leaves from the ODBD Custom Fall Leaves and Acorn set and also a small leaf from the SB mini leaves set.

Our Daily Bread Designs supplies: Thankful Song stamp set, Custom Fall Leaves and Acorn die set.

Other Supplies: Spellbinder dies, seam binding ribbon, button, twine, heat embossing, reinkers, waterpen, foam tape.

Check out the blogs of my talented designer friends for more inspiration.
