Sweater Weather

Good morning, and happy Saturday!  August's sketches are by Elizabeth Harris, and I am actually back on track.  Yippee Skippie!  Here is the Utah Diva's sketch for August 24, UDISC255.  You can find all of the cards and designers here.

I had this stamp set and paper on my desk from a card I worked on earlier this week, so I used them as my inspiration.

Details ~
  • Paper ~ Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Sweater Weather DSP
  • Ink ~Black Staz-On, Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand, Tangerine Tango and Soft Sky ink pads with a blender pen
  • Stamps ~ Truly Grateful
  • Accessories ~ Blender pen, neutrals Candy Dots, 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon, 7/16" Trim
Truly Grateful is my favorite of the fall sets in the new holiday catalog.  I just love fall weather and the colors of the trees, pumpkins, cornstalks, the crisp, cool nights... I think you get the idea!  I love the different patterns here as well as the added texture from the ribbons.  After I took the photo above, I decided to add some interest to the main image using Gorgeous Grunge with Soft Sky.  Here is the new photo.

What do you think?  I know it is a subtle difference.  Which one do you prefer?  I'd love to hear from you!

Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for stopping by.



  1. Very nicely done, Barbara! I like the grunge added, but both are beautiful. The striped paper behind your wheat looks like a cord sticking out. Love it!

  2. Love your ribbon banners, Barbara!

  3. Hard to choose! I love them both! Beautiful as always!

  4. Love all the colors and ribbons, trimms... beautiful job!!

  5. Very all the ribbons and trims; classy!!
