Stampin Celebration Grateful Sketch

Welcome to the November Stampin' Celebration sketch challenge!  I love sketch challenges!  Having a suggestion helps jump start the creativity and yet leaves enough room for the imagination to run wild.  What fun!

For my project I decided to use go with an autumn theme given the time of year.  I hope you aren't too tired of seeing autumn themed cards.  

I wanted to use the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set from the Stampin' Up 2015 Holiday Catalog.  I love the fun images.  The Into the Woods designer series paper from the same catalog helped to inspire the colors.  

I decided to make the focal point a banner and filled it in with a few different elements,  The greeting is from For All Things wood mount stamp set (2015-2016 Stampin' Up Catalog).

Hope you are inspired to play along with us!

Stampin' Celebration Inspiration!

I was so excited to have the new Stampin' Celebration to help inspire me today!  I have not been in my craft room for over a month!  It was nice to clean it up and start fresh.  An inspiration also helped as my creativity is not flowing so well these days.  Probably been confined for too long. 

Anyway, nothing like a deadline and pretty pictures to get one moving again!

For this challenge I decided to use Tip Top Taupe and Delightful Dijon as my color scheme.  A beautiful combination of colors!  I also loved the rosette with the bird so I decided to use that as my focal point.

I layered a few elements such as the white jute ribbon that I sponged with Top Top Taupe ink and the scalloped Delightful Dijon cardstock.  

The card went together pretty quickly once I started putting it all together.  Maybe taking a month off actually helps clear the mind enough that I don't over think the design...

Can't wait to see what you create with the inspiration provided by Stampin' Celebration!
