Autumn Fall Wreath for The Paper Players

by Joanne James14. September 2014 08:00

Today I'm sharing my Design Team card for The Paper Players, where this week Anne Marie has chosen this beautiful Autumnal colour palette for us to work with:

  

I also used the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week for my layout. As soon as I saw this week's colours, I knew it was time to make an Autumn wreath card using my 'Wondrous Wreath' stamp set, as I've been wanting to do one of these for ages. Here's my card:

I used Baked Brown Sugar and Cajun Craze for the leaves on my wreath and stamped the berries in Blackberry Bliss. I cut it out using my Big Shot and the co-ordinating framelits and looped some linen thread behind it before adhering it with dimensionals to my Hardwood background, stamped in Always Artichoke (this panel reminds my of a mossy whitewashed shed!). I finished my wreath with a bow in the gorgeous Blackberry Bliss satin ribbon and a sentiment panel stamped with a simple 'thanks' and decorated with a few leaves from my 'Gratitude For Days' stamp set and a couple of candy dots. I love the rustic feel of this card - so fitting for this time of year.

Do pop by the challenge blog and see how the other Paper Players designers have used this week's colour combination - there are some fabulous cards from this talented bunch of designers.

I'm still playing catch up so am looking forward to a reasonably restful day today before the onslaught of another new and action-packed week. Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

I'm inclined to agree Nance - I've seen so many wreaths in fall colours and they look just beautiful.

Love all the fall wreaths I've been seeing with this set, and this is no exception!  I love the Hardwood background, but those little leaves you've stamped add a little sweet surprise!

Thanks LeAnne - I've been wanting to make a fall wreath with this set and these colours were perfect. As for the leaves - I bought Gratitude For Days as something of an afterthought, yet it is my most used stamp set so far this catalogue - go figure?!

Thanks Cindy! Not as 'clean' as I would have liked for FMS, but the sketch was too good to pass up!

Love that you used the green for the background and not the wreath!  Beautifully done, I must say!

Your autumn colored wreath is lovely! When I first saw this set using it for fall never even crossed my mind. The more I see it used for fall, the more I want to add it to my collection. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration.

Thanks Andrea - I think this set is more versatile than even I first thought and the co-ordinating framelits are a definite bonus!

Thank you Claire - I'm not a big fan of Always Artichoke and don't use it often, but I like the look of it here with the other colours.
