Creation Station Blog Hop - Black and White Plus One

What's that you say? October is here? The changing colors, the chilly weather, the smell of pumpkin spice...oh, I could go on and on. October is absolutely my favorite month of the year! I am absolutely giddy this time of year! *big grins* And with the start of a new month, starts a new blog hop. This month it's all about black and white plus one more color. Do you know hard it is to choose only one of Stampin' Up's fabulous colors to showcase? Gulp! I'm hoping I did this month justice by in the end, going old school classic with Real Red. 

October is time for apple picking so I inked up the Harvest Hellos stamp set and highlighted this delicious fall fruit. I used both light and dark Real Red Stampin' Blends to color it and then popped it up on dimensionals and adhered it to a stitched circle I die cut, which is also popped up on dimensionals. I wanted to get a little creative so I stamped the leaf repeatedly to create my own black and white dsp. Three small white die cut stitched circles help to border the leaves and and ground the apple. For a fun twist I inked up three of the leaves in Real Red ink, punched them out with the coordinating punch and added them randomly as well. In the end, this card and idea of using black, white and one other color made me smile, so I couldn't help but stamp that on the card! What a fun theme this month!  To see other AMAZING creations, please continue on through the blog hop starting with the sweet and talented Sara! Happy stamping my friends!
