Guest Designing with Dare 2 B Artzy Week 2

I have had a lot of fun creating with the new Harmony Stamp Set from Dare 2B Artzy the last couple of weeks. Today I am sharing a card made with the jewel tones of fall. My little town is supposed to get 4 inches of snow tomorrow, and no matter the date, that signifies winter for me. So today are the colors of mums, leaves, and.... togetherness!

I started by cutting a fish tail banner out of the beautiful aqua floral from the All the Buzz Collection of 12 x 12 papers. Next is a colorful contrast (and my favorite color of fall mums) in a circle cut with the Double Dot Circle Framelit Die. I used VersaMark ink and stamped the hand with the heart, following the circle patterns.  I adhered this to my banner, and tied some twine around both.

Next I stamped my sentiment on Kraft cardstock, and rounded the corners using some VERY old scissors (before we had punches and dies!). I still have all my original patterned scissors. I popped this up with foam tape onto the circle at a slight angle, and added two kinds of metallic sequins for bling. A bright corrugated background brings in the gold of fall. I had some lovely purchased vellum leaves, and added those to pull all the colors together. 

I almost added my "tag" to a little kraft gift bag, which would also look super cute for a friend, but in the end, kept it a card. I may make my tagged bag yet, though!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. It means a lot to connect and I appreciate you!
