Scrapping Recipe Challenge #19

Happy Friday!! I can't believe it's Friday already!Wohooo!
It's time for another one of Scrapping Recipe Challenge from Sketches! {by tamara}. Here is the card that I submitted for this week's.

The recipe called for the use of felt, stickles and office supply or a library pocket.

I combined images and sentiment from two different sets, "Fall Season" and "Autumn Foliage" from Inkadinkado for my Fall card. Of course, I used my favorite Nestabilities: Classic Ovals and rectangles:-))) The orange background panel is embossed using one of my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folders. And , I stamped sentiment onto Vellum paper. I used my Oval Nestabilities to create the various layers. The leaves are stamped onto cream c.s. with Gingerbread (VersaMagic ink) and then I sponge (colored) with Adirodack inks. The final elements I added some felt leaves, Round Clip and Stickles.

Stamps: Inkadinkado
Papers: Brown, Orange, Cream c.s., Clear Vellum paper

Time for sketches! #65

Happy Tuesday to you all!!! Hope everyone is having a fabulous day!!! It's time for a new weeks Sketch from Sketches! {by tamara}. This sketch was so much fun. The sample was intended for a 3x3 but we could do any size we wanted. I made mine a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.
Here is my card for her sketch:

For this sketch, I used stamps set from Inque Boutique. It is so beautiful "Leaves" set. I stamped leaves onto patterned paper, cut out, gently gammed and sponget the edges. Then, I added some Cinnamon Stickles to the leaves. The sentiment is from "Fall in Love" set (Autumn Leaves). I added some piercings, ribbon, silver oval bookplate.

Stamps: Leaves (Inque Boutique) and sentiment (Autumn Leaves) Papers: Green, med.Green c.s., Patterned paper from Inque Boutique and Deja Views
Inks: Bamboo (VersaColor), Caramel Delight and Whisper Sage (Inque Boutique), Coffee Beans (Brilliance)
Accessories: Ribbon, Stickles, Silver Oval Bookplate
Tools: Paper Piercer.

I did use the same stamp set for another project - "Wine testing party". You can find this project in my Inque Boutique Gallery.

In this project I used several bottles of wine, which I wrapped in a dark paper (stamped leaves and swirls) than pattern paper from Inque Boutique and numbered for a vote for the Best wine in the Party.

On the wineglass I hung a tag, which looked like grape leaf, with the name of a person. I used wire to make it look like a grape vine. I used paper coasters to put under the wineglasses.

I make a grading sheet, where the guests are going to score the bottles of wine. I wrapped the pencils in dark red paper and adhered a grape leaf with some wire swirls.

For invitations, I used dark red paper and pattern paper. I stamped leaves leaves and swirls, note for comments and a title of “Wine Tasting” and put together with the use of brads from Inque Boutique.
