A Triple Mashup!!


It's looking like Fall Y'all!!! Well here in the North east it is anyways. The leaves are starting to change and it's so pretty! This week at the Friday Mashup Lisa is our hostess and she is bringing us a Fall Foods themed challenge with some paper piecing.


Around here we are up to our ears in Sweet Corn it's everywhere!!! So when I think of fall / end of Summer I think about Corn. Pumpkins are just starting to show up around here.

I also used the Sketch from Create with Connie & Mary and the Fall Create with Connie & Mary Color Challenge.. It's a Triple Mashup!!



I started with a Chocolate Chip card base and then I stamped the Woodgrain Background stamp in Chocolate Chip onto the front. The Soft Sky panel needed some texture so I ran it through the Big Shot with the Houndstooth Embossing folder. Then I stamped the faux washi tape in the challenge colors using the Tape it Set. I know, I know someone is going to have to take this set away from me soon..lol But I LOVE it! 


The corn & Thank You come from the retired Perfectly Preserved set.. This is going to be a popular set for this challenge I have a feeling. For my Paper Piecing I stamped the corn image onto some Gingham Garden DSP and cut it out and added it for the Husk.. There's no green in the color challenge but my husk needed to be green.. lol and it looks so stink'in cute! 


I stamped the Thank You in Chocolate Chip and punched it out with the small oval. The corn and faux washi tape images have a ton of dimensionals on them. This card has some height. When I was done I felt it needed something on the right side and I didn't have any brads that would work so I used some of the wood buttons.. with some twine threaded through them. It was the perfect balance the card needed. 

Be sure to head over to the Friday Mashup blog and check out what the rest of the Design Team created.. The challenge is open until Wednesday at 6pm EST. The sketch Challenge at Create with Connie and Mary is open until Wed. at 12pm EST. 

Have a great weekend.. I'm off to a Wedding on Saturday, hopefully the weather stays a bit warm because it's outside. I leave you with a pix of my photography assistant this morning. 


Thanks for stopping by!

  6. YUM! Love those little corn stalks with the Tape It strips in the back - what a great alternative to banners (which I can't seem to stop using). Those buttons are perfect!
