Colorblock Autumn — FMS458

We have another new sketch for you over at Freshly Made Sketches. And this week our hostess is our crazy talented friend from Colorado, Kim Singdahlsen. Take a look at this fun layered card:

When I first saw this sketch I immediately thought of paint chips. Maybe that’s because we are preparing to have our house painted and I’ve been looking at paint chips a lot lately. I pulled out some favorite Fall colors of inks and sponged some of those colors on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.

I used a color scheme of Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze, Terracotta Tile, Pumpkin Pie, and Crushed Curry and masked off a 3/4″ block before applying each color. Stampin’ Up’s grid paper really made this easy.

The leaves and acorn are from the Gilded Autumn dsp and the Beautiful Autumn stamp set and coordinating dies. The sentiment was embossed with some old Early Espresso embossing powder. In my excitement of knowing exactly what I wanted to make with this sketch as soon as I saw it, I didn’t look at the sketch closely enough. I didn’t notice that the sentiment is supposed to go below the focal panel until I was tying up this post. Oops!

The focal panel was placed on a card base which was embossed with the Subtle embossing folder.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch! We love to see what you make as we browse the gallery each week. Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
