Washi+Autumn Colors=Fall Fun

Today's festive card is Stuffed with Autumn Color and Fun Washi Designs!

Is the air getting cooler where you are? 
Well Despite the warmer weather we are STILL having, I did see a
Liquid Amber showing it's blushing arms today. I can't wait for the
colors to SHout out in the days to come.

But for now I'll just have to settle for the colorful leaves in the Color Me Autumn DSP. This DSP has been like the Energizer Bunny for me...it just keeps  going and going. In fact there was plenty for my card class last week and I still have plenty to go....love it!

Looking for more Autumn Color Inspiration and a feeling of fall?

Come play the Autumn Color Challenge HERE

One of the things I like to do is take advantage of the coordinating products Stampin'Up pairs together. I'm talking about the Color Me Autumn Washi Tape.
Is yours sitting on the shelf waiting to be used? Don't OVER think this stuff because it really is so easy just to add a quick strip or two over a small panel. INSTANT color and pattern and re-positional if you don't get it straight the first time.
Color Me Autumn Designer Washi Tape

1.   Make a Crushed Curry card base or use one of the CUT AND READY card
      bases ( 20 prescored and precut) #136657
2.   Cut a Soft Suede panel 4" x 2". 
      FYI, The Neutrals Collection has 20 sheets, 2 each in 10 colors, perfect 
      for when you need small panels of the Neutral colors #131191
Neutrals 8-1/2" x 11" Card Stock
3.   Cut a DSP layer 3 3/4" x 1 3/4".
4.   Cut a Canjun Craze piece 4 1/4" x 2", punch one end using the 
        Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  Pop up using Dimensionals
5.   Cut a Mossy Meadow panel 3" x 2 1/4".
6.   Cut a Very Vanilla layer 2" x 1 1/2".
7.   Using Canjun Craze ink stamp the sentiment from 
      the MINGLE ALL THE WAY on the vanilla layer.
8.   Wrap Washi Tape around the bottom of the Mossy Meadow panel.
9.   Wrap Crushed Curry Baker's Twine around the washi layer, 
      knot it and tie a bow.
10.  Punch some fun Crushed Curry leaves using the Bird Builder Punch.
11.  Pop up the Mossy Meadow layer with Dimensionals.
12.  Want even more detail? Regal Candy Dots to the rescue, just 
      peel and self sticky...how easy is that!
