Combined Color Lab/Stamping 411 Challenges

One of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is that I get to order from their catalogs a full month before they go live.  As soon as I saw the Gently Falling stamp set, I knew I had to add it to my stamp collection.  Then after I saw the Color Lab Challenge I knew the Gently Falling set would be perfect with the colors Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede and a touch of More Mustard!  I checked out the  Saturday Sketch Challenge from Stamping 411 to put my creation together.  Here it is:

Hmm, wonder if the Color Lab challenge design team had the Spice Cake designer paper in mind when they chose those colors. 

I stamped so many of these gentle leaves that I decided to make another more simplified card:

Stamps: Gently Falling (upcoming Holiday Mini!)
Paper: Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede More Mustard, Spice Cake dsp
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, More Mustard, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories: Stampin' dimensionals

My youngest daughter Clarice has had a fever for the last two days.  She's getting better now, but had a LONG three hour nap this afternoon.  I'll probably be up late with her tonight.  And now my six year-old says she doesn't feel well.  I'm sure they'll be feeling better soon!

Happy Stamping!

This is absolutely beautiful! I love the DSP and how you used it on your vertical strip. It almost looks like ribbon! Very pretty

I knew when I saw this stamp set, that I needed to have it, and now that I've seen this gorgeous card, I know I'm right! I love how you've inked up the leaf.
