Good morning! Today is the 9th of the month, which means the beginning of a new challenge over at Where Creativity Meets C9. (And it also means the new Concord and 9th September Release is now live. SO MANY adorable new holiday stamps!!! I’m going to be so poor after today!) For this month’s challenge, we are providing a color palette for you to draw inspiration:

Now, we know I don’t like orange all that much. So I kinda cheated and used just two of the colors: Aqua and Charcoal. I am loving how aqua is finding it’s way into autumnal color schemes! Cool colors are my favorite!
I began by heat embossing the new Thankful Leaves turnabout stamp, with all four rotations, using White Pearl embossing powder onto some aqua card stock. I absolutely adore the subtle pattern this creates on a colored card stock background. I blended some darker aqua ink around the edges to help further highlight the beautiful detail in the background stamp.
Next, I die cut a vellum leaf using the coordinating Thankful Leaves dies and a greeting using the Grateful for Everything coordinating die set (the stamp that coordinates with this die is probably one of my most favorite stamps ever….) I adhered both die cuts to the card front with liquid adhesive, leaving the edges of the leaves without adhesive so that they popped up a bit.
The final step was to add a few jewels from Pretty Pink Posh to add some sparkle.
Well, that’s all for me today! I hope you are inspired to bring out your Concord and 9th products to create a project inspired by the color inspiration photo! Simply create a project, link it up to the Where Creativity Meets C9 blog post by September 29, and you could have a chance to win a $25 shopping spree to the Concord and 9th store! One winner will also be chosen to be a guest on an upcoming challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a marvelous Sunday. 🙂
