First Frost Floral

It's time for another color challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches!  This week Patricia has chosen Blushing Bride, Berry Burst and Soft Suede. A beautiful combination so I thought I'd use a beautiful new Stampin' Up! stamp and die set from the Holiday Catalog.
This was a simple card to make.  I stamped all the flowers using my Stamparatus in two steps.  First I stamped them in Blushing Bride, and then with the Berry Burst.  Because of the nature of these stamps - they are meant to give a very soft and detailed shaded look - I used a sponge dauber to ink up the stamps.  When I used my pad directly on the stamp, I did not get the subtlety of shading that you see here.  For the Berry Burst, I just lightly touched the Center of each flower with the dauber.

I used one of the Petal Pair embossing folders that I think coordinates beautifully with the die cut foliage and a stitched circle that I popped up on foam dots for the sentiment.
This card was very easy to make and would also look lovely in holiday colors.
