Vintage Autumn for As You See It Challenges

I'm so happy that it is Friday again! This has been a crazy week! Actually, it's going to be a crazy autumn, because I am travelling every 2 weeks, visiting kids and grandkids, short vacations with friends, crops and other things. I am also taking up the reins of the Drama Ministry at our church so that means writing, directing, and organizing skits and plays for many different occasions at church. This is all wonderful and I'm not complaining, let me just say, but it means that my business is compressed into intense intervals when I'm home!

For today's project, I wanted to go for a fall theme so I got out my Vintage Leaves stamp set and I wanted to use the sentiment you see in this card from the Trust God stamp set as a reminder to keep it simple when I can! There are so many good reminders in this sentiment!

This is my take on As You See It Challenges #105:

Great sketch by Amanda! Get on over to As You See It Challenges this week and check out the other Design Team samples. We've added 4 new DT members and you're going to love their work!

While the sketch took care of the layout of this card, I still needed a colour palette and I found a nice autumn-themed combo on Pinterest:

Put it all together and this is what you get:

I hope you'll give this challenge a try this weekend and have some fun with it. I'm going to a Crop for the Cure on Sunday, so I will hopefully have gobs of samples and projects to share with you next week!
And speaking of Crop for the Cure, don't forget that Stampin' Up! is contributing to the fight to Stamp Out Breast Cancer with Paper Pumpkin. 

It is contributing a dollar for every current subscriber and an extra dollar for every new subscriber who signs up by Oct. 10, 2015!  Pop on over to Paper Pumpkin to get yourself a Creative Escape in a Box once a month, a great deal at only $24.95 which includes shipping, worth every penny and you can help Stampin' Up! stamp out Breast Cancer!

Product List


  1. Good pick on the colour palette - it's lovely. I don't have this stamp set because I have French Foliage, and it seemed a waste to get a set similar, but it looks so good in this card that I might have to think again!

  2. The stamping is lovely! Such rich, pretty colors and details.


I love to read your comments and get to know you better! Thanks for adding one!
