Off the Wall Craftiness

Hi Friends

It’s time for our weekly Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge, and, as usual, Kim has a great color combo. Unfortunately, I do not have the photos because I accidentally deleted from my email. The colors are Orange, lime green and chocolate brown. (Go to her blog to see the inspirational photo, so pretty!)

Here’s what I came up with:


The stamps I used are by Denami, who is sponsoring this week’s challenge!! Denami stamps are so adorable, I was thrilled that we got to do a challenge with them.

For my card, I clear embossed the images to create the background. I stamped the pumpkins on a strip of Neenah cardstock, colored with my Copics. Then I put a strip of scalloped green paper behind my pumpkin strip, tied some twine (from the twinery---fabulous) around the strip. I mounted my pumpkin strip with foam tape to give it some pop! I distressed the edges of my card base and the pumpkin strip just to add some depth to the card.

This is my last challenge on the Off the Wall Craftiness Design team, so I want to express my gratitude to Kim for including me on her team. It’s been so much fun and a privilege to get to know her better and be part of her fun color challenges. I will definitely be playing along in the future!

Have a blessed day

What a pretty and thankful card, love the colors. Always liked seeing what you had in store for the challenge, glad to hear that you will still play along. I'm always so inspired by your use of bright colors, perhaps some day that talent could make its way towards me? Can you share a little? Please?
