Bellarific Friday: Fall Colours

Hi all,

TGIF!  Welcome to another Friday, and I hope the weekend is gonna be delicious!  Over at Stamping Bella, we love Fridays, because we get to play along with another new challenge, and we get to see all the cards the Sistahood produced for the previous challenge!

This week's theme was fall colours.  This one should be pretty easy, right?  Most people like these colours - the greens, the reds, browns, rusts, oranges...
People love the feeling of fall because everything outside is so beautiful.

Here's my take:

I used the fall colours, but my card is definitely not a fall theme.  My base is Kraft CS, my patterned papers are from SU's Fall Flowers DSP pack, and my mats are all black.  I punched the corners of the base layer with my Ticket Corner punch, and I added some light green Dew Drops to the corners of another panel with Mini Glue Dots.  I tied some Old Olive grosgrain ribbon around that base layer, and that's it!  The papers did all the work, really.

I stamped Gwendolyn Lulu onto Bella's Bestest Paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with Copics.  I added a bit of Liquid Pearls to the centres of her flowers, and some shading with my Prismas.  I cut her out with Square Nesties and added some Wheat Versamagic sponging inside the stencil, and mounted that onto a black square cut with Scallop Square Nesties.

Next week's theme???? Hallowe'en!  Pull out some Hallowe'en images or papers or embellies, and show us what you've got!  Make a Hallowe'en card using any of the images sold at Stamping Bella by Thursday night, and send it to Emily (  You'll be entered to win some Bella Bucks, and your card will be published on the Bloggabella (and we all get to drool over what you made).

Make sure to enjoy your weekend to the fullest!
Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
