Top Note and Magnificent Maple Fun Color Combo

If you've been blog hopping or PINning extraordinaire you are well
aware of this versatile MAGNIFICENT MAPLE  stamp.

I always try to challenge myself with new color combinations and I've always loved using the teals colors along with the traditional Fall colors. I think the Island Indigo creates a nice change and works well with the Summer Starfruit. I really had fun throwing in the unexpected Pumpkin Pie for a nice little Bright Spot on the card. Rich Razzleberry ink gave me the perfect dark contrast I was looking for, softer on Very Vanilla card stock than if I were to have used Whisper White.

My sketch was inspired by Connie and Mary's Fall Saturday Challenge HERE.
And I've Designed a Special 3-D Project using the Magnificent Maple stamp that is perfect for your Fall Table. However the only way you can see it is to be a subscriber to the FALL COLLECTION.....you can subscribe at any time! 24 projects for about $1.00 each (step by step downloadable tutorials) INFO HERE
