Paper Smooches Sparks | Anything Goes Challenge

Good morning! Welcome to this week's Paper Smooches Sparks Anything Goes challenge

Fall is my favorite season and I love creating fall themed cards. For my card, I pulled out two die sets from Paper Smooches: Large Leaves Dies and Thanks

I die cut the leaves from white cardstock, then used my Copic and Spectrum Noir markers to color them in, blending several colors together until I liked the look. To create the multi-colored Thanks inlay, I die cut Thanks from a white cardstock panel. Then I cut three strips of yellow and orange cardstock, and lined them up on the back of a large sticky note, making sure all three strips were temporarily adhered to the sticky note. I placed my die over the strips and ran the whole thing through my die cut machine. I popped the die cut from the die, and carefully adhered the pieces to the white cardstock underneath the die cut white piece.

I wrapped some white thread around before adhering it to my card. After I adhered the leaves I added a wooden button that I've had in my stash forever... maybe 7 years? A few enamel dots finish it off.

I hope you can play along with us this week! Make sure to check out of the awesome creations by the rest of the design team:

Have a great week. :)
