I love this yummy combination of Rich Razzleberry, Blackberry Bliss and Tangelo Twist for today’s autumn card.

I took a few liberties with today’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO416) but I think you can see how it inspired the design of my autumn card.


  • A soft touch of White Stampin’ Chalk Marker really adds a whole new “cool” to the leaf.  I’ll share a 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial tomorrow to show you how easy it is.

  • The coordinating Leaflets Framelits Dies make the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set even more delightful.

  • A single Candy Dot in Pumpkin Pie (Brights Candy Dots) gives the sentiment just a touch of oomph and it’s close enough in color to the Tangelo Twist card stock.

  • I layered the “Believe” sentiment from Lighthearted Leaves over a strip of Blackberry Bliss washi tape (2014-2016 In Color Designer Washi Tape).  Check out this idea I shared for washi tape storage.

  • For the perfect polish, I cropped a coordinating pattern from Into the Woods Designer Series Paper as an envelope liner.  See the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog designer series paper in an easy to view format here.

  2. These are such awesome colors together! Who’d have thunk it?!!!

    • Well the Blackberry Bliss was an accident. I added the Washi thinking it was Rich Razzleberry and liked the depth it added. That’s when I decided to add the rectangle of Blackberry Bliss.
