Autumn Waterfall


Watch out! Long post........

This was my first time to make a waterfall card. I must say it was fun and I took the opportunity to make it a Fall card which can be used either for Thanksgiving or Halloween. A sentiment can be put inside when I decide which I want.  The challenge I'm doing is for CCEE Stampers, given by Sabrina Friel to make either a waterfall card or a free standing pop-up card. The tutorial for both of these can be found in the tutorial section on Splitcoaststampers.

If you pull the tab at the bottom of the card, it begins to unfold each of the stamped squares. Just push the tab back up to close it. The SCS tutorial shows better how this works.


I've stamped images used on the squares on the Crumb Cake cardstock. I colored images on my squares with Copics.

Shown below are the last two images still unfolding.


We hope you'll go over to the challenge 1237 and join us in making these fun cards. We would love to see what you make.

Recipe:
Stamps-Inkadinkado/Scarecrow Mini, Bo Bunny Stamps-Apple Cider clear stamps ( set includes the flourish, acorn), Stampabilities/Fall Leaf, Stampabilities/Pumpkin
Paper-Mark's Finest Papers/Late Afternoon Sun and Orangie Sunset, Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, and Crumb Cake, PTI White cardstock
Ink-Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories-Lemondrop twine from The Twinery, yellow eyelets, eyelet setter, Copics

Oh Brenda, I love the pop of those fun autumnal images against the neutral background with the same images - and the extra pop of colour from the two different eyelets is fun. I am being blown away with everybody's creativity this week.
