Around the World On Wednesday Blog Hop-November 2023- Fall Color Challenge with Aspen Trees

Hello and welcome! I am Theresa McEntee, creator of Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. Today I have the pleasure of participating in the Blog Hop with Around the World on Wednesday (AWOW) organized by Angie McKenzie. On the second Wednesday of each month, the AWOW team put together a thematic hop to give you some inspiration for your own crafting. “Fall colors in Paris” is a Color Challenge for this month’s theme.

My Project for today

I was creating this card in my head over several days. I really love this particular design in the All About Autumn 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper pack. I wanted to used the Aspen Trees Dies too.

I do look at a lot of projects that other talented crafters make. Some of those projects inspire me and help me to create my own project. I hope my project will inspire you!

Project Details

This card was made using a variety of stamps and dies. The Autumn Leaves stamp and Dies come as a bundle (#162186). I have really liked the Aspen Dies that go with the Perched in a Tree stamp set. The Layering Leaves stamp set is great for sentiments.

  1. Stamp the sentiment from the Perched in a Tree stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink onto the Basic White cardstock. Use the the Daffodil Delight Ink to Stamp Off once then stamp the image of the leaves from the Autumn Leaves stamp set around the sentiment.
  2. Adhere the Basic White cardstock to the inside back panel of the Pecan Pie cardstock card base.
  1. Stamp the sentiment ” Thinking of You” from the Layering Leaves stamp set onto the smaller piece of Basic White cardstock. Diecut with the label from the Autumn Leaves Dies.
  2. Use the Daffodil Delight Ink and a Blending Brush to color the small leaves diecut from the white/copper foil design of the All About Autumn DSP.
  1. Place the Silicon mat between the front panel of the card base and the All About Autum DSP layer to avoid getting glue on the inside layer.

  2. Start to adhere the diecut leaves. Remember that they will show through on the inside.
  1. Adhere the Pecan Pie cardstock for the inside to cover where the sentiment shows through. Then position the leaves on the inside to hide the backside of the leaves from the frontside.
  1. Add a few more leaves to the cardfront taking care that they do not show through to the inside.
  2. Tie a bow with the Copper Ribbon and adhere with a Mini Glue Dot.

Voila! That is it!

Hello, my name is Theresa. I have 4 children and a wonderful husband of 30 years. I am a retired Family Physician. I love having time now to create and craft, so much so that I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I have been a demonstrator more than 5 years and am having a blast! Not only do I get to craft, I meet new friends from all over the world! Crafting gives me something positive to do and to share with others. I love to have my monthly Zoom Card Making Classes so others can craft with me. I have so much fun creating the cards for others to make! My blog was initially geared toward the beginner stamper in order to help others get started stamping on their own at home. If you need information to get started, look for my first blogs. My more recent posts have been cards and projects for Blog Hops and challenges. Stop by to see my projects and those of folks from around the world! Add more creativity to your life today!

  1. The double layer format is really effective and I think it’s a great use of the gorgeous DSP. It’s a lovely card, Theresa. 🙂
