Scrapping for Less ~ September 2020 Fall Color Challenge ~ Let's Bundle Up and Get Cozy!

 Hello there crafty friend!

Today I'm sharing the new challenge cue over at Scrapping for Less: Show & Share Facebook group. I don't know about you all but I absolutely LOVE Fall colors... the rich combinations of earth tones along with the regal tones... it makes my heart so happy to play with these colors!! I thought it was time to switch things up and do a color challenge!

Before we get to the color challenge... a little business... the key to playing along with the challenges in the Scrapping for Less: Show & Share Facebook group is being a member of the group so if you aren't already a member please join us here!! We'd love to have you come join us! Also, please note that you don't need a blog to enter the challenge as you're adding a photo of your creation directly into the challenge album in the group. You are welcome, however, to add a link to your blog in the description of your creations if you'd like.

Let's check out the Fall Color Challenge cue...

Stunning color combo, am I right? I love it!

We have a dark green, light olive, deep yellow, yummy orange, rich cranberry & luscious eggplant.
Of course, if you don't have these exact colors it's ok... just try to use similar ones. And you can incorporate any neutrals that you need for your design.

Here is my card... using the gorgeous Cozy Fall papers from Scrapping for Less along with the adorable Bundle Up stamp set from Hero Arts. Both of these products are available in the SFL shop!!

If you've been playing along with our sketch challenges in the Facebook group, you may recognize the sketch I used for my card design. This is one of my favorites for featuring pretty papers... so I just had to use it. I stamped the cabin with Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, and Hickory Smoke distress ink cubes carefully inking it up in sections. I then colored it just a little for highlights with my Copic markers. I stamped a few leaves, acorns and pine cones on a scrap of white card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored those in with Copics, as well. 

Here's a list of the Copic markers I used:

Cabin ~ N0, N2, E23, E25, E55, E57
Pine Cones ~ E51, E55, E57
Acorns ~ E21, E23, E25
Leaves ~ Y11, Y15, Y35, YR15, YR21, YR68, R000, R05, R14, R27, R39, R46, R56
Sky ~ Y000, Y11, YR15, YR21, YR23, YR27

I also die cut the Autumn Blessings die twice from the dark green paper in the Cozy Fall paper pad. I adhered those together and then adhered them to a piece of the cream sweater paper. I trimmed that down and mat it with the dark green paper. I adhered the sentiment to the focal image and then popped it up on the card front. So... what do you think? I think it turned out pretty cute and it's definitely got me excited for Fall!

I hope you'll come by the Scrapping for Less: Show & Share Facebook group and play along with the September challenge. It starts today and will end September 30th at 11:59pm EDT. The winner will be announced on October 1st in the challenge album. Please use hashtag #sflcolorchallenge5 in any social media posts when playing along with the challenge. Can't wait to see what you create with this gorgeous Fall inspired color palette!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
See ya next time.

Inky Hugs,
