I Am Thankful For You! Paper Players Challenge PP 562

 October 10, 2021

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

The amazing Anne Marie is our hostess this week and she has a fun "Fall" color challenge for all of us!  We can't wait to see what you create!  

My card is created on a white card base.  I used a die to cut the Early Expresso background.  I embossed this panel with a wood grained embossing folder.  I cut a Pumpkin Pie panel using a die and then I stamped the leaves on Pale Papaya using Early Expresso ink.  The stamp set is an an SU set that is retired now.  I love these leaves, so I will never get rid of this set.  I seem to pull it out every year.  The sentiment is stamped on Pale Papaya. I added twine on the top of the leaves.

  1. All the great details really make for a lovely nature inspired autumn card. The deckled edges and woodgrain embossing are especially nice! I love this set too and whenever I see it being used I regret passing it along when it retired! I look forward to seeing it again next year when you use it! :) Have an awesome week!

  2. Love that embossed perfect for your fall leaves and sentiment. Beautiful!!!

  3. Great texture with that embossed background and such pretty pattern on your leaves!

  4. The die cut, embossed Early Espresso panel is the perfect backdrop for the leaves and sentiment, Claire! Such a warm card with so much texture! Have a wonderful week!

  5. I love this....those leaves are ones I wish I had gotten myself! Perfect in these lovely fall colors!

  6. Love the embossed panel paired with the fall leaves! Great card, Claire! Have a great day!

  7. A beautiful simple design and amazing use of the colors, Claire! Just right for this time of year. Hope you're enjoying your week.

  8. Love the detail on those leaves Claire and the rustic wood embossed background - a fabulous fall-inspired card!

  9. Claire, I love that you focused on the Espresso! It's such a rich and sumptuous color and deserves to be center stage. I also love how you used it for your leaves and how the color ties the base of the card to the focal element. Fabulous card, my friend

  10. What a beautiful fall card, Claire! I just love the detail in the leaves and the texture in the background. The colors really pop!
