VCMP Challenge #2: Celebrating Nature!

Time for challenge two in our VCMP! This one is Celebrating Nature...or Au Natural depending on where you look.

My first thought was to use flowers. I have several of those, not just stamps but paper and embellies as well. But, no, it's the end of summer and time to think fall. It's hard since today it's supposed to be over 80 here. Yet I was determined!

Here is my first card:

I have a set of four leaf stamps from Hero Arts that I've never used. I didn't feel any mojo to use them separately, so I used them together, several times. Yes, that's right, I made my own paper. It was fun and fairly quick. I didn't realize how many fall type colors of ink I had. This is from OWH Sketch #69. The brown paper is from my stash, naturally, and the ribbon is American Crafts.

And I made a second card:

On this one, I inked the edges of the white paper so they blended a little better with the brown paper. As you can see, my bow is all over the place, but I like the look. This ribbon is from Ribbon Trends.

I hope you're enjoying the VCMP!



  1. What beautiful result on your paper! I love the bold, bright mix of colors against the rich brown.

  2. So pretty!!
