Dynamic Duos #8 - Falling Leaves

Happy Saturday Everyone,
Today's post is for the Dynamic Duos Challenge this week to use Always Artichoke, River Rock plus Neutrals. I stamped the Wonderfully Worn Background stamp on the base card with Always Artichoke.  Rocked and rolled some of the leaves from French Foliage and stamped off the words and splotches once in Crumb Cake.  The seam binding ribbon was dyed with Always Artichoke and after I attached the ribbon. I frayed the ends and added the corduroy button.

Stamps: S/U's French Foliage, Wonderfully Worn BG, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card: Always Artichoke, River Rock, Very Vanilla
Ink: Always Artichoke, River Rock,
Finishing Touches: Kraft Corduroy Button, Dyed Seam Binding Ribbon, Linen Thread
Tools: Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Dimensionals, Dble Sided Tape, Sticky Strip, Fiskars Trimmer and Scoring Tool, Sponge
Thanks' for taking the time to stop by and take a peek.
Happy Stamping!

  2. Susan this is such a lovely and peaceful sympathy card and perfect for this weeks colours!

  3. Fantastic card Susan, great use of the colours in the challenge this week. I am still pondering on my card at the moment, hopefully inspiration will come tomorrow.

  4. This has such a calming look to it! Love all the leaves and the way you did your ribbon!!!

  5. Perfect colours for an Autumn scene. I love the coloured seam binding (must remember to do that more often)and the Wonderfully Worn background.

  6. Sue, this is absolutely stunning! I just love the rock and rolled leaves and the corduroy button is a great pop of texture. You always add the best details to your project. Have a great day! Hugs! :)

  7. Gorgeous stamping Sue, the collage style is always pretty but looks wonderful in the two colours. The ribbon and the button accent are lovely touches too.

  10. I just love this one Susan! French Foliage is my all-time favourite stamp set and you've showcased it beautifully!

  11. Susan, you have used lots of my favourites on this one - colour combination and French Foliage. I love the way the Wonderfully Worn background stamp bring it all together. This bg stamp is now on my wish list.
