Hive Creative Challenge: Happy Birthday - Fall Theme


I love Fall colors and was excited to finally pull out my Autumn Abundance patterned papers from Papertrey Ink!

I started by stitching papers together over a Kraft mat, adding a stitched border as well. The sentiment (Vintage Picnic) was stamped with Dark Chocolate ink on Rustic Cream cardstock that had been die cut using Fillable Frames 2. The frame was stamped using Terracotta Tile ink. The sentiment piece was popped up over some Terracotta Tile saddle stitch ribbon. I was DYING for Dark Chocolate saddle stitch ribbon, but it's not offered by PTI due to some sort of manufacturer error...


The image adhered next to the sentiment is from the Autumn Abundance stamp set. I stamped it on Rustic Cream cardstock, colored it with the Dark Chocolate, Orange Zest and Summer Sunrise Copic trios (I don't have any Terracotta Tile Copics!) and then carefully cut it out!


I lined the Kraft envelope with more paper from the Autumn Abundance patterned paper set. Very festively fall, n'est-ce pas!?

This piece goes along nicely with the first official Hive creative challenge here. If you decide to join the Hive, remember to "Like" my post! ;)
