MSC Feeling Fall

With the current Mod Squad Challenge being pumpkins and the Double D Challenge being wreaths, I decided to combine the two. Using my MISTI made this fit a third challenge at Split Coast Stampers.

I love Susie Moore’s work and found a card she created for a blog hop a few years ago, using the GKD Autumn Wreath Builder stamp and stencil set, so I followed her design. I added acorns to my wreath where she had leaves, but she added shading to her pumpkins with alcohol markers. I have never added marker shading to inked images, so this was fun to try. I used GKD inks and Memento Rich Cocoa for the stamping. The cardstock is GKD Heavy Base White and SU Tangerine Twist. I am pretty low on other orange colored cardstock and there is 2 reams of this retired color, so it is being used heavily. The greeting is from Power Poppy Feeling Fall set which is retired, but you can find several of the images in digital form.

Birthday Wishes Wreath

Flower Power Challenge

This is my second card to post to March ginakdesigns challenge. I used the Wreath Builder for placement of the large flowers, the flourish, and the leaves.

Stamp sets: Frame and Flowers 1 (large flower), Sending Love (flourish bud), Stippled Flowers (leaves), Birthday Blessings (sentiment, cut apart to stack). The Darice Vine embossing folder was used to add texture to the card base. The card base is SU Sky Blue and is a 5 inch square. I rounded one corner to give a bit of interest. This card is very sparkly as I used a sparkle pen to add a bit of shimmer. Here is the link for the challenge:
