The Paper Players Autumn Floral Challenge


Hi everyone!

Sandy has a theme challenge for us at The Paper Players:




Such a pretty badge!
I pulled the autumn colors from it and cut a bunch of Cheery Lynn leaves and pumpkins out of shimmer paper. I'm really into shimmer paper lately and bought several colors. I love the texture and shine.

 I just got the new Lawn Fawn set,"Pumpkin Spice" and wanted to get it inked up to use for my sentiment. I cut out a coffee cup from Cheery Lynn and arranged my fall florals around it.

 I see pumpkin spice stuff EVERYWHERE! 
Even my cheerios are! There are cookies, crackers, beverages of course, candy...you name it. All up and down the isles, and even in the stamp section...LOL! So I bought a few stamps, and even some cookies:)




Be sure to check out the rest of the Paper Players Design Team!



I hope you will join us!

Laurie, I am all about "pumpkin spice" everything! I wish I could have a latte every day, but way to many calories. LOL! All your dies are amazing and those leaves are gorgeous! Have a great week, My Friend! XX

This card has such a festive Fall flair to it.... so pretty with the leaves sticking out behind the cup and the green circle in the back really sets things off. Great design Laurie.

WOW What a fun & fabulous fall card! (love the new header!)

This is a beautiful design and has a lot of the aspects of Fall in it including the coffee for the season.

Your card conjures up the feeling of autumn perfectly. I can almost hear the crackle of a log fire and feel a warm cup of something nice in my hands! The colours and textures of your leaves are gorgeous.

We have pumpkin spice Cheerios in our pantry too--yum! Love your autumnal leaf bouquet and those fabulous glimmer papers. The green circle is the perfect element to ground the design and coordinate with the pumpkin stem. Great card, my friend!

Your post made me smile Laurie - I have a friend who has just moved to the USA from the UK and she says she sees pumpkin spice everywhere too! Love those rich colours and wonderful autumn leaves - the perfect setting for your favourite blend!

Oooh, what a nice challenge! That shimmer paper sure is pretty. Gosh, you need look no further than your Cheery Lynn dies... Always so fantastically cute and/or pretty! Mmmmm.... pumpkin raisin bars...

LeAnne said...

What a wonderful collection of die cuts, and I love how your coffee cut is the focal point in your arrangement, Laurie! I also love pumpkin spice, and even have some pumpkin spice hand wash. Smells great, zero calories!

A beautiful cluster of yummy fall goodness on this card! I love that shimmery cardstock too! Wonderful card, Laurie!

Laurie, you really are the queen of die-cuts and you use them to create such wonderful cards and this one is no exception. I also LOVE the sentiment. Perfect fall arrangement.
