Autumn in a Jar

Hello Everyone

It's been a while since I posted something, but hopefully I'll be able to share more from now on.

I've made a card for two challenges, ColourQ and Less is More. Below are the colours for the ColourQ challenge, and Less is More's theme is Autumn. As it's the first time I've posted anyting I hope the card meets the criteria set.

ColourQ's challenge was to include these colours:

Here is my card, made using Whisper White cardstock as the base:

I love the  jar from the Perfectly Preserved stamp set, from Stampin' Up! The leaves are from the Confetti stamp set, and have been inked up using Write Markers. As I don't have Pear Pizazz or Old Orange, I've used Lucky Limeade and Pumpkin Pie instead. The sentiment is from the same set, but I've cut it out using the Bitty Banners Framelits. Here is a close up of it:
To make this card you will need:

Stamps: Stampin' Up! Perfectly Preserved, Confetti
Cardstock/Paper: Whisper White
Inks: Basic Black (for the Jar)
Other: Stampin' Write Markers in Lucky Limeade, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango and Bitty Banners Framelits.

  2. Welcome to "Less is More" Angela.
    This is lovely card... beautifully clean and simple.
    If you could link directly to your posting rather than your entire blog and also remove the word verification that would be really helpful.
    Thanks so much

    1. Hi Loli

      Thank you for your lovely comments. It's quite daunting posting one of your own creations. Much easier to admire others! :-)

      Hope you are having better weather than us!

      Hugs Angela
