October Color Play

Good morning, Papertrey Ink friends! Welcome to this month's Color Play feature! This month we're playing along with this photo of an apple picking party styled by Jessica of Oh So Printable via the Hostess With The Mostess Blog:

Isn't that an adorable idea? As cute as it is, I thought the colors in this month’s inspiration photo would be perfect for making a card for my husband. We recently moved and I wanted to give him something special to let him know how important he is to our home.

I stamped the house from Gingerbread Lane using Ocean Tides and Classic Kraft inks. I added the little heart from the same set in Pure Poppy and embellished it with Christmas Red Stickles. I created the background with the clouds from Up, Up, & Away by rolling their edges in Ocean Tides ink and stamping them off a couple of times to get a softened look. Then I stamped the sentiment from Tick Tock in Smokey Shadow. I die cut the In The Meadow shapes from New Leaf patterned papers and nestled my little house between the hills (the top hill was added with foam tape). A little baker's twine finished the whole thing off nicely. I'll have to sneak this into his lunch back in the next couple of days to give him a little extra love.

Thank you so much for joining me today! I'll see you all again soon!
