TGIF! It’s time for a color challenge!
Today, the TGIF Challenges Design Team is showcasing projects using the following color inspiration:
Cherry Cobbler, Cinnamon Cider, and Mossy Meadow.
These colors inspired me to create a fall-themed card using one of my FÅV bundles from the Stampin’ Up! 2021 Holiday Mini Catalog: Gorgeous Leaves Bundle.
The Gorgeous Leaves Bundle includes the Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set and the Intricate Leaves Dies.
GORGEOUS LEAVES CLING STAMP SET
Add a touch of nature to your handmade cards and scrapbook pages using the Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set. Layer the leaves over the background images for a dimensional look, or use the background images alone to add visual texture. You can easily create a border by stamping the trio of small leaves in groups.
INTRICATE LEAVES DIES
You can cut out a treeful of leaves in no time when you use the Intricate Leaves Dies. Use the open dies to cut out stamped images, or use the detailed dies to create quick accents. You’ll use these dies all year long—just change the color of cardstock to reflect the changing seasons. You can also layer the detailed dies over cardstock or patterned paper so the bottom layer peeks through.

Crumb Cake is one of my favorite neutral colors. It gives it such an earthy, organic feel. What is your favorite neutral color?
Merry Merlot, Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Gray Granite, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Mossy Meadow, or Night of Navy?
