Happy Fall !


I LOVE fall ! Cool, crisp days with no humidity; opening the house to let in fresh air; colorful leaves on the trees against the bright blue skies; apple picking and apple pie making; attending car cruises and festivals  =)



I imagine someone has made a card like this already..... It is inspired by the numerous crafts projects I've seen (and some that I've completed) over the years. I entered it into the soshelli.com Fabulous Fall challenge.
Happy Fall !



SUPPLIES:


Background stamps, retired, from Stampin' Up!:

Paisley

Crackling

Just Jeans

Flannel Plaid



Various card stocks, some retired, from Stampin' Up!:

Naturals Ivory for the face

Barely Banana for the hat

Cajun Craze for the nose

Whisper White and Basic Black for the eyes

Crumb Cake for the shirt

Whisper White for the overall straps

White copy paper for the bandana

Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip textured and True Thyme for the sunflower



Classic inks, some retired, from Stampin' Up!:

Creamy Caramel and Crumb Cake for the hat

More Mustard for the sunflower

True Thyme for the shirt

Cherry Cobbler for the bandana

Buckaroo Blue for the overall straps

Cajun Craze and an aquapainter to add the dark edge to the nose



White gel pen - eyes and nose highlights

Basic Black marker - stitching on nose and mouth

Stampin' Pastels - for the cheeks

circle punches for the eyes

large heart punch, top double humps trimmed off, for the nose

Boho Blossoms punch for the sunflower and leaves

Stampin' sponge - for sponging the hat, sunflower

raffia

dimensionals - under hat

sticky strip - to hold on the raffia

I'm sorry, but I do not have a pattern. This is a standard sized 4.25" x 5.5" card.


 
Thanks for looking =)

  4. I've never seen a card like this one before. I really like his paisley kerchief. I can't get enough of seeing the retired stamps still getting used! Love it.

  9. OMGosh! I can't believe this was made with mostly background stamps! When I first saw it, I thought....ohhhh, it's so cute, but I don't want to have to paint on a card (crackling) or to get special fabric (bandana), then I read the products used! Amazing!!!! I love it! He's so cute!
