Welcome to another beautiful trio of colors from Pals Paper Arts and For All Things Fall. Just right to usher in the change of colors. I can’t believe it’s been over a week since updating the blog. Whew, what a week of creating. Look for few of the projects in the next few days. For now, let’s focus on the colors of PPA218, Blackberry Bliss, Crumb Cake and Hello Honey.
If you’ve followed Wild West Paper Arts for the last couple of years you probably know that I love the leaves of autumn. When these colors came up, there was no question what would be created.
Here’s how this cute little tag is created.
Next, use your Big Shot to add texture by embossing with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
Now the fun begins. Use a Stampin’ Sponge to distress the edges of the leaf with Hello Honey and Crumb Cake. Finishing off the tips with Blackberry Bliss. Use the sponge again with Crumb Cake to lightly distress the raised edges of the embossed woodgrain. Then, use your Adhesive Remover as a stamp to add a little Blackberry Bliss to the embossed leaf.

While the base is drying, create the focal pieces using the new For All Things Stamp Set featured in the 2014 Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up!
Apply a little glitter to the leaves with 2-Way Glue, add some ribbon and you’ll have cute tags for the season.
Now hurry and enter Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge PPA218 before the deadline, Tuesday, September 9, 2014 at noon eastern. A new challenge is published this Thursday.
