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.

Tip: I have a different Blending Brush for each of the main colors (red, pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black and brown) so I do not have to wash them in between projects.

  3. Finally blend the Moody Mauve Ink on the top of the Basic White cardstock.

  3. Now adhere this card piece to the front of the Very Vanilla cardstock card base.
  4. Lay the tree branch on the card front and trim. Then adhere the tree branch to the card front with the Liquid Glue.
