Create in Color Challenge 36 Video: Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Masculine Card

Happy Tuesday, and welcome to Create in Color Challenge #36! This week features some gorgeous fall colors, and I used them with the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set to make a couple of masculine birthday cards!

I love the grunge look in this stamp set – with the splatters around the leaves! The “Happy Birthday” sentiment is from the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set. Check out the video tutorial below:

Here’s the color combo for this week! If you’d like to participate in this week’s challenge, make a project using some (or all!) of the colors listed above (or similar hue if you don’t have the exact color), and share it in my Facebook Group with #CreateinColorChallenge. I’m so excited to see what you create!

Above is a look at the inside of the card, too – with muted colors! I didn’t reink the stamps for the inside, but “huffed” on them to get the ink reactivated. So, the colors on the inside are stamped off two to three times.

Early Espresso Cardstock
  • 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • 4-1/8″ x 3-1/8″
Basic White Cardstock
  • 4″ x 3″
  • 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the Inside
  • Scrap for the Sentiment
Beauty of the Earth DSP
  • 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • 3/4″ x 4″ for the Inside
These cards are so easy to make and duplicate, and I love how well the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set works for cards of all occasions. I hope you’ll play along with this week’s color challenge, too!
