SCS Creative Crew October 2017 Project #2


For this card we had a picture we had to look at to get inspiration for our project.  I will be honest, this one took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do.  I would look at the picture, go look at my paper, go back to the picture and again go back to my paper.  Then one night after one of my classes my best friend, Robin, and I were talking and I had the Painted Autumn DSP laying on the table.  We both looked at each other and thought I wonder if this paper would work.  I looked on the back of the package and it didn't say it coordinated with any of the grays that Stampin' Up! has.  The dark color is Early Espresso in the paper.  

So, I got out a piece of the Basic Gray (which I used) and the Smoky Slate and laid them on top of the designer series paper.  Oh my goodness, the Basic Gray was perfect!  It was like a light bulb went off and I started getting ideas.  The theme this month was comfy and cozy and to me that describes fall.  You will notice that all of my projects this month have a fall theme to them.  

Here is the picture that we used for inspiration.

Did you notice the green plant on the top right corner?  That is where I pulled in the green along with the Cajun Craze, Basic Gray and Very Vanilla.  When I was looking at the picture on my phone, the browns looked like gray, but looking at it bigger here, there is definitely brown in the flooring and the table.  The walls though and some of the pillows look a little gray to me.  How about you?

To make this project you will need the following:

Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock #144237

  • cut at 5 /12" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 1 1/2" x 2 1/2"  for the sentiment
  • cut at 1 1/2" x 2 3/4" for the lids of the cups
  • cut at 2" x 2" for the leaf

Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
  • cut at 3" x 4 3/4" for the two cups
  • cut at 2" x 2" for the leaf

Garden Green Cardstock #102584

  • cut at 2" x 2" for the leaf
  • scraps for the hearts

Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper #144613

  • cut at 2" x 3 3/4"

Did you notice the stamping on the Basic Gray piece of paper?  I did that with a stamp from the Jar of Love using the Smoky Slate ink, but I stamped it off first.  I wanted a real light image since it was for a background.

The only thing that is popped on this card is the sentiment.  I used the 1/2" Gingham Ribbon in Smoky Slate to wrap around the card to give a finished look.

Cute card--warm and cozy like the picture! I have trouble with sketches so would've been lost with that picture! You nailed it though! Way to go!

Thank you so much Susan. It definitely took me out of my comfort zone on this one.
