Friday Mashup: Indian Summer

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a "Indian Summer" themed project.
  2. Or Make a project with any three colors from "Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Raspberry Ripple, Lucky Limeade & Early Espresso".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Indian Summer Themed project with the color combo". 
Now that we are starting to get a hint of fall, Heidi presented this great challenge to see out the summer days.   Be sure to drop by the Friday Mashup and see all the other lovely creations from the team. 

This was actually one of my cards for stamp club this month.  After I made it for the challenge I just knew it would be a fun one to do with my ladies.   I just love the Perfectly Preserved set!  It has so many possibilities and can work for a lot of holidays and occasions.  It's a pretty simple card, but I thought it was cute.  

Stamps:  Perfectly Preserved
Ink:  Cajun Crazy, Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade
Paper:  Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade, Cajun Crazy, Whisper White, Orchard Harvest DSP
Tools/Accessories:  Big Shot, Window Frames and Cannery framelits, Festive Paper Piercing pack, Early Espresso baker's twine, Linen Thread

Last week we got all dressed up to go to Target but after some fussing in the car and the threat of rain, we ended up coming back home.  Good thing as it came a total downpour about 2 minutes after we got back in the house!  


  1. I love this set like crazy... can't stop using it!

  2. Your card is awesome, Rita! I love the layers of DSP, so subtle but such a nice detail. Your daughter is too cute for words!
