October Elemental Inspiration

Hello and welcome to another weekly challenge from Daring Cardmakers.

Its my turn to host the challenge this week.  As its the first Friday of the month its time for an Elemental Inspiration Challenge.

I found this lovely picture while searching on Pinterest.

To join in the challenge you need to pick 3 elements from the above image to include on your card.

I picked the colours, wood grain and leaves/foliage. 

To make the card I started with a piece of grey card stock and stamp the flowers and stars all over using the Wood Words Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!  Next I used the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder and placed the stamped piece of card stock through my die cutting machine.

I then layered this onto some blue card stock and glued this to a kraft card base.
Next I cut out all the elements for the jar and foliage using the Jar Of Love Stamp Set also from Stampin' Up!

I then stamped a little sentiment flag using the Wood Words Stamp Set.

A lovely card to match the season to give to a dear friend. 

Thanks for stopping by today and please check out the Daring Cardmakers Blog for more lovely inspiration from the Design Team.

Have a great weekend.


  1. Lovely mood bosrd, thanks Dawn! Love the way yours turned out, the neutral base with the little pops of orange and turquoise looks really effective!

  2. Thank you so much for the lovely inspirational pics! Fab card, too - those jars are really useful, so many things you can stick in there :-) and the woodgrain is also perfect for a fall themed card.
