IO Challenge- Autumn Colors

Greetings friends.  Today's challenge is all about Autumn Colors, but that doesn't mean you have to choose Fall images!  I decided to go with red, orange, yellow and brown and then use those colors to make a card that was inspirational instead of autumnal. 

To make the card, I started with a piece of cream cardstock and sponged some Pan Pastels onto the cardstock to make it look like a sunset.  I then stamped the elephant design onto the card with brown Versafine ink and colored underneath the wildlife scene using some brown Pan Pastel chalk.

To create the background, I used the Map Cover a Card background and stamped it onto kraft cardstock using the same brown Versafine ink.

Super easy!  If you wanted to make an actual fall card, why not choose a different cover a card pattern and stamp a bunch of leaves on top of the Pan Pastel background instead?  So many choices...

Impression Obsession items used on the card:
Elephant Scene F7920
Cover a Card Map CC063
Unfortunately, I didn't realize the sentiment has been discontinued.  May offer a replacement suggestion?  How about this one-
Great Adventure C14157

IO Challenge- So Very Thankful (Thanksgiving/Thank You)

Greetings friends.  The challenge today is all about making Thanksgiving or Thank You cards.  For my card, I wanted to share a card using one of my newer Cover a Card Backgrounds.  The Leaf Ledger Cover a Card is great for making autumnal-themed cards. I used it with bright fall colors, but it also looks great in greys and blacks for Halloween.

To make the background, I sponged yellow, red, and orange PanPastels onto cream cardstock, stamped the background on top with Versamark and then sponged more of the same PanPastels on top.

For the top piece, I added the Sunflower Pumpkins and Happy Thanksgiving sentiment before coloring the pumpkin with Zig Clean Color Brush markers.

On the topic of giving thanks, I appreciate you all stopping by today!
