The current ABC Challenge is our very first color challenge and the colors are: Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Chocolate Chip. I decided to ink up my new leaf stamps and I have to tell you that this is an awesome stamp set and I'm so glad I ordered it. These leaves are perfect for fall cards, thank you cards, and I can even picture myself using these for some scrapbooking.
If you are using the die with this stamp set, I found that it really helps to die cut your card stock first. Then I inked my stamps and turned them upside down with the rubber image facing up. Then I placed my die cut on top of the inked image and I pressed lightly to get the ink on the card stock. Trust me, it's so much easier this way!
I scored my background using my simply score tool and I was trying to mimic the design in the smaller pumpkin pie leaf image. I scored my card stock using three lines and skipping two and once I had the one direction finished I turned the card stock around and did the same thing doing in the other direction. I think my background turned out pretty neat!
The rest of my card is fairly simple. I added some pumpkin pie and old olive dsp and then I tied some crochet ribbon and I added a button with some twine tied in the center. One thing I wanted to mention is that when I add a button on top of my ribbon I use a glue gun to hold on the button. It's what seems to work the best for me.

The poinsettia flower was stamped, colored using my SU markers, and then cut out. I added three gold brads in the center of the flower and my flower has dimensionals stacked (two layers) underneath it. I stacked the dimensionals to raise it up a bit since my sentiment panel also has dimensionals under that.
I used my scallop trim border punch to punch along the bottom of my cherry cobbler card stock.
I made this card for a few challenges. I'm surprised that I was able to combine a few challenges because I'm rarely ever able to do that. I made this card for:
SUO blog challenge - create a clean & simple Christmas card
52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge - create cards using scripture. I'm late posting my card for this challenge since I wasn't feeling well so I apologize.
Queen for the Day challenge- on Splitcoast stampers and I decided to case this card made by Gabby's. I kept the same layout and I changed the images, papers, and I decided to make a Christmas card. Congratulations Gabby for being chosen Queen of the Day!
