Fall Acorns at Sami Stamps



Good morning dear friends in blogland!
I have a card from you with one of the new Fall Acorn images from Sami Stamps. Sami released these images last Friday and we also begun with a new monthly challenge: CAS with Sami Stamps image. There's really cute DT cards with these Fall Acorn images in the challenge post here -do check them out and join us in the CAS fun! One of my favorite images from this release, Little Acorn Bird, is a current freebie at Stamp Shop, don't miss it!

The main inspiration for my card came from Casology cue word "Brown". I think keeping coloring quite monochrome using shades from same color group helps keeping the look more CAS. I chose warm browns which suited this little Indian girl perfectly! I used kraft card as my background and stamped some leaves from Fresh Squeezed Stamps to embellish. I'm unsure of the layout of the card, what do you guys think? I've been discussing CAS design and "trapped white space" with my blogging buddy Sandie lately and this card is maybe on the edge of looking a bit cramped! :)

All the challenges I'd like to enter:

  2. Aivan ihana, väritys on ihan loistava ja värit passaa täydellisesti keskenään. Ihania Sami on taas loihtinut, NIIN harmittaa ettei ole tuota PayPallia, että voisi siellä shopata...

  3. I think it is perfect! I am blown away by this colouring. I love the way you have coloured her dress, the blending is perfect. Also, the feathers over the top of the kraft really makes them pop x (and thanks for the shout)
