Stampin’ Up! Petals and Paisleys Speciality DSP in Cajun Craze Thankful Card

Another Fall card!  Don’t you love Fall?  My favorite season.  I do not do summer very well, so Fall is a welcome relief and I get to wear turtle necks and wools.  Crisp mornings just somehow inspire energy in me!

So here is another Fall Card.  Cajun Craze Card Stock is the basic card.  I did a little differently with the DSP on this card.  The DSP here is a pattern from the Petals and Paisleys Speciality DSP and I used my sponge to light dip into the Cajun Craze Ink Pad and buff over the pattern to kind of make the background a bit darker.  Using the Banners Framelits Dies I die cut a banner in Crushed Curry to fit the left 1/3 of the card front.  I  then smudged the edge of the Crushed curry Card Stock with a Sponge Dauber and Cajun Craze.


Next I adhered the checkered patterned DSP from Petals and Paisleys Speciality DSP to a piece of Cajun Craze Card Stock.  The sentiment is from the Paisley’s and Posies Stamp Set and is stamped on Very Vanilla Card Stock using Cajun Craze.  Next I smudged the background with Cajun Craze and using a couple of the tiny leave stamps I stamped off twice and ‘shadow’ stamped all over the background in a collage manner.  All layers were adhered using SNAIL adhesive.


The fancy paisley die cut on the upper left was done by using the medallion (I don’t know what else to call it) die from the Paisle Framelits Dies in Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze.  Getting all those little holes poked out was accomlished with the new die brush.  The brush and sponge pad are wonderful getting all those little nooks and crannies cleaned up in a jiffy.  I adhered the medallion to the card front using glue dots.


The inside of the card was competed by layering Crushed Curry Card Stock with Very Vanilla Card Stock and smudging all the edges in Cajun Craze Ink.  The leaves are a repeat from the front and done in the same way stamping off twice.

Here are the products I used on this card:
