Home to Roost

Hey all, Happy Saturday! I've been working on this card off and on for the last few days. Finally done!

Inspired once again by the Color Challenge at Color Throwdown #CTD529. My first thought was Painted Harvest, but I've already done that in these colors. Next thought, Home to Roost-one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration sets. Here is my card...

based on this challenge of Yellow, Orange and Red.

My Stampin' Up! Colors are Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight. Card base is Real Red, with a Pumpkin Pie accent layer, and a background stamped with the Buffalo Check background in Daffodil Delight on Very Vanilla. The roster was stamped on Thick Very Vanilla in Memento Black and colored with Stampin' Blends in Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake. Light and Dark of each. He is layered onto Pumpkin Pie and Real Red and attached over the Burlap ribbon with dimensionals. The "just a note" is also from the Home to Roost set and was punched with the Classic Label punch. Red accents are a second punch in Real Red, cut in half and trimmed to accent the end. Attached with mini dimensionals. 

Here is a hint for the Buffalo Check stamp too. First one I did, I just stamped taking the stamp to the paper that was cut to size. That gave me no room for correction though if it wasn't straight or centered, and it wasn't! This one isn't perfectly centered either, but it is better than the first. So, leave your layer bigger than you need so you have room to trim down. AND, lay the stamp on it's back, ink and lay the cardstock down on the stamp. You can see better the placement that way!

Thanks all for stopping by today! Product details and shopping links below!
