Change is in the Air in so many ways especially seasonally. The Stamping Sunday have a theme this month that represents such changes. Here in the UK and throughout the Commonwealth there are many changes in the air with the sad passing of our Monarch, which is why you’ll see a slightly more muted appearance to my posts.
My focus for this hop was for the changing of the season and my hand turned to a Fond Autumn. Immediately I considered burnt oranges and hues of ochre, but considering change, I chose to use a less bold palette.
Starting with a card base of Soft Sea Foam, I added a matting layer of basic white die cut with the Aspen Trees Die.
This beautiful die gives a wonderful backdrop and sets the scene. The large leaf and acorn image from Fond of Autumn was stamped in Black Memento onto Basic White card stock. Coloured using our Alcohol Blends Pens, I decided to stick to a more muted green and beige palette.
The Die for this image, singles out this section that I decided to adhere over a swish of pale ribbon. Coordinating the ribbon with the colour of the card base, helped pull things together and the gold trim, add a touch of elegance.
Heat Embossing a sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder again brings a touch of elegance that was finished with a scattering of sequins.
Tailor Made Gift Tag
To coordinate further with this card, I created a Gift Tag using the Tailor Made Tags Dies.
Layering two together, allowed me to show a hint of Soft Sea Foam behind the basic white tag in the foreground. Using the same image and colouring methods I added the focal point right across the tag. Leaving it sentiment free, allows freedom of use.
A soft muted colour palette for the somber mood that’s in the air. I hope you like the coordination I have created here with card and tag.
Thank you for hopping by today, I hope you’ll take a moment to hop by the others within the Team.
