Different Fall Colors

I used the colors that are in the Secret Garden scrapbooking kit for this different fall color combo. We did this card at my last class, except I switched out the coral for pumpkin and the olive for chocolate. I got the idea for the medallion from my friend Krystie. It is just popped up with a dimensional and nestled up under the ribbon so it looks like it's tied on the ribbon, but it's not! Yet another shortcut to make your stamping easier. I'm pretty proud of this knot too, sometimes they turn out and sometimes they don't. Here are
ribbon/knot-tying tutorials from Valerie and Kristina. They are fantastic!
stamps - Autumn Fest, It's Your Birthday, Everyday Flexible Phrases
paper - cameo coral, always artichoke, old olive, whisper white
ink - cameo coral, always artichoke, old olive
acc - river rock double-stitched ribbon, vintage brad, 1-3/8" & 1-1/4" circle punches, dimensionals

So here is what the card looks like with "real" fall colors, teehee!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!

I love the colors in both of your cards. I guess I better break out my Autumn Fest stamp set and get to work. Thanks for sharing.

Becky - What beautiful cards. I live the overlapping stamping and the use of the circle punches for the tags. TFS!

Beautiful cards, Becky. I love the tip with the circle punch looking like it is attatched with the ribbon!!
