October Color Play

Good morning, friends, and welcome to the October Papertrey Ink Color Play feature! This month we're playing along with this photo:


Isn't that lovely? The colors in this month’s scheme are perfect for autumn crafting. I love creating for this season and the chilly fall days are sure to feel a little warmer with this palette. I was inspired by the leaves falling outside my studio window and thought they might look nice on a Thanksgiving-y card. Lucky for me, that worked wonderfully with this month's combo!

Giving Thanks Card

I began by die cutting several leaves from the Leave It Be collection. I used some rock 'n roll inking to stamp the leaves with the colors in the palette and set them aside. Next, I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of Rustic White cardstock using Dark Chocolate ink.

Giving Thanks Close Up

I stamped a few leaves onto a Rustic White card base and layered the die cut leaves in for a bit of dimension. I curled the leaves up a smidge and added the sentiment strip with foam tape. I love the simplicity of this card. It might not be terribly technical, but it more than makes up for that in the texture department.

That's all for me today. Thank you so much for joining me for this month's Color Play post. I'll see you again soon!
