Inspired by Fall Foliage: Celebrate

I just recently purchased a couple of the Concord & 9th Turnabout sets.  I hadn't sat down and figured out how to use them, but when I saw the challenge at Inspired by... I knew it was time to try the wreath.

Inspired by Celebrate

I am IN LOVE with the Turnabouts.  They are amazingly easy to use and create that riot of color.   (I have the snowflakes too and clearly am going to have to bring the others into my stash.  They are so fun and give results that might make people think you slaved over their card!)

Here's my inspiration:

I didn't get a good shot of my card.  I moved early in the summer and my new craft area has wonderful natural light for photos.  Or should I say "had" wonderful natural light.  The days are shorter now plus I work days so I'm going to have to deal with the lack of natural light (or plan my crafting life so all cards are ready to photo on the weekends and fingers-crossed that the weather's good!)  Here's a close-up that's a bit better and shows the sparkle on the sentiment.  (The gray in the image was supposed to be the same gray as the sentiment, but I didn't wipe the stamp well enough so it picked up some of the other colors - lesson learned.)

This was put together for a friend whose birthday is in a couple of weeks.  I shouldn't post it yet, but I really wanted to be part of the Inspired by... challenge since they were entirely responsible for me trying out these stamps!!

  1. Those turnabout stamps are a little challenging at first, but what amazing results! Your festive fall card is a feast for the eyes! Thanks for sharing it with us!

  2. Gorgeous wreath, Kim! Looks like you have the Turnabouts mastered. I have a couple sets and they really are fabulous. One remains to be inked - the Christmas one from last year! Need to set it someplace prominent so I remember to use it...
