Creating Pretty Cards – Monthly Card Challenge #14!

Hello Stampers,
I saw this sketch and all of a sudden I had all these ideas for cards, so although the challenge was to create one card using the sketch, I created three. Yea, I know I got a little carried away. LOL

Here's the sketch for CPC14
And here is one of my inspired cards (CPC14) 01

When I saw the sketch, I immediately thought of a leaf falling so this is what I came up with.
I used the Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP (126906) that I got at convention. I don't think I would have ever bought this DSP because I don't do a lot of Halloween cards, but now I really like this paper and plan on getting more.
I also use More Mustard, Tangerine Tango, Basic Gray and Very Vanilla. I use the leaf from Betsy's Blossoms (126006) and the sentiment from Loving Thoughts  (125845). I also use Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon (120999). I used the Finishing Touches Edgelits (127010) and Adorning Accents Edgelits (125595). I embossed with the Square Lattice folder (119976) and used the new Apothecary Accents Framelits (127003) to layer the DSP. This card has a lot of layering but I don't think it looks too busy.

Here is my second inspired card (CPC14) 02
I just love the colors in the Floral District DSP (126919). On this card I used the Sweets for the Sweet (122512) stamp set as well as Teeny Tiny Wishes (115370) stamp set. I used a little bit of Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon (125583) in the bottom corner. I used the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch (119854) and the 1 3/8" Circle punch (119860). For the sentiment, I used the Word Window punch (119857) and the Modern Label punch (119849).

Well, I just couldn't make these cards without making a Christmas card, so here is what I came up with (CPC14) 03
This one was pretty fun to make and I just love the colors, Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla. On this card I used the Be of Good Cheer DSP (126896) and Gumball Green card stock (126840), Cherry Cobbler card stock (119685) and Very Vanilla card stock (101650). I added a little piece of Cherry Cobbler Scallop Dots Ribbon (124138) in the lower right corner. I used the new Apothecary Accents Framelits (127003) for the sentiments and the Ornament punch (119847) as well as the 1" (119868) and 3/4" (119873) Circle punches. I used the new Merry Minis stamp set (127919) with the coordinating Punch Pak (126882). Then I used the Chock-Full of Cheer stamp set for the Merry Christmas sentiment.

You are ready for a stamp a stack! Thanks for showing an alternative use for the Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP. I didn't buy that paper yet, but I love your card. The colors are so Fall! I really like the More Mustard and Tangerine Tango combination. All three cards are beautiful. Thanks so much for playing along with the Creating Pretty Cards Sketch Challenge over at Craft project Central. Please play along next month too. I think you will like the sketch that I have in the works for September.
