SIP #75 - Color Challenge!

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  I cannot believe that it is almost Thanksgiving!  This month has just flown by!  This year is not going to involve a lot of cooking for me.  Jeff and I will be meeting the kids and grand kids at Cracker Barrel on Wednesday night and will enjoy a low key Thanksgiving at home with the dogs this year!  Everyone has so many places to go and it just seems a bit easier this way!  I will cook a little Thursday but not the big feast that we usually have.  I envision a lot of relaxing and maybe I'll let Jeff beat me in a few games of Sorry!  lol

This week over at Stamp, Ink, Paper we have a color challenge!  I hope you'll head over and check it out!  It a great idea to take a little break from your festivities to make a card!  (I'm sure I'll do some of that too!)  Ok, so the colors are Pool, Copper, and White.. nice combo, right??

I hope you don't mind one more fall card.. I couldn't help it!  You see I just had to have the awesome Pumpkin Spice Stamp Set from Unity!  It was a stamp of the week a few weeks ago and I thought that since I wasn't a stamp of the week member that I couldn't order it.. well I was incorrect.  My friend, Ginger, told me she thought I could and she was right!  I was so super duper excited!!!
You see I am one of the crazies that just HAS to have a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks the moment I see the sign saying PSL's are back!  So how could I possibly resist this awesome stamp????

I received the stamp set a few days ago and couldn't possibly just put it up until next fall.. it was calling my name!  lol  I stamped the image with Memento Black Ink onto Whipped Cream FSJ Cardstock that I friend Eva sent me to try out.  I used Copics to color it in and then fussy cut it.  I used a 11" x 4 1/4" Heavy Base Weight White Cardstock as my base and scored it at 5 1/2".  I added a piece of DCWV Winter in the Woods Cardstock that was cut 5 1/4" x 4" and ran a piece of White Seam Binding around it before adhering it to the cardbase.  I folded one of my White Doodlebug Mini Doilies and glued it over the seam binding on the right side of the card.  I used a Unity Stamp Co. bow maker to tie my little seam binding bow that I glued to the left side.  For the life of me I can't seem to make a bow without this little thing!  I used Versamark Ink to stamp the sentiment in the upper left side and used some SU Copper Embossing Powder to emboss my sentiment.  I used Foam Tape to Adhere The Fussy Cut image onto the front and called it a day!  I hope you love it as much as I do!  Sometimes the simplest cards turn out to be my favorites!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina


  1. So the background paper is winter in the woods? I am so loving the bar siding with the blue milk paint look!

    1. Yes it is! I love that blue milk paint look too! I bought that pack on clearance last year at Joann's on line. I wish I had purchased more of it!
