Another Fall Color Challenge – PPA 175

It's Thursday so it must be a Pals Paper Arts Challenge!  This week is another color challenge using some less familiar colors.  Check it out… 


Sure I could have used Wonderfall leaves or perhaps the Truly Grateful stamp set (one of my favorites in the holiday catalog) yet I wanted to stretch myself and do something different.  These colors are very masculine to me so I reached for my World Map stamp.  


The result is a clean and simple masculine card.  Here are the details:

  • Card base – So Saffron, standard A2 card
  • Cajun Craze layer is 4" x 5 1/4"
  • Very Vanilla layer is 3 3/4" x 5" and the World Stamp is created with Always Artichoke ink and adhered to the Cajun Craze layer
  • Adhere the Cajun Craze layer with Stampin Dimensionals to the card base
  • Sentiment is from the Chalk Talk Stamp set* also created with Always Artichoke ink  and punched out with the Extra Large Oval Punch.  Then adhere to Chalk Talk framelit* cutout from Regals Designer Series Paper in Always Artichoke.  Attach the frame to the map with Stampin' Dimensionals for more visual interest
  • Finishing touch – Cajun Craze candy dots from the Regals Candy Dots

*Purchase the Chalk Talk stamp set and matching framelits as a bundle set and save 15% 


A close up of the sentiment:

  1. Michelle,
    This card is beautiful! I’ve have always shied away from these large stamps, but seeing your card makes me want this stamp. You’ve also given me a great idea for a masculine card, something I’m always short on.

  2. Michelle, You always do such wonderful work. I love this card – the sentiment, the map, the layers all work together nicely. Thanks for playing along with The Pals Paper Arts this week.

  3. Michelle, you are so right, these work so well as masculine colors and your card beautifully demonstrates that. Just Gorgeous! Thanks for playing this week at Pals Paper Arts.

  4. Luv your take on this colour challenge Michelle. Such a great masculine card and I love the matching envelope. TFS.

  5. Fabulous, Michelle! I love this sentiment with the map image…PERFECT!!! Thanks for playing with the Pals, Pal!
