Autumn paint sample

My sister tossed out a family challenge, this one is to use paint samples on our cards. I have a nice little stack of these, most are thin with letting on them but I have a few that are large square. They happen to be nice fall colours so I thought they would be perfect for an Autumn card.

I used the mini Chicken Wire die cut and pieced together a mosaic of sorts using a deep read, burnt orange, yellow, sage green and deep green. I added in some twine and a heat embossed sentiment that I popped up.

The paint samples reflect the light oddly so the picture did not turn out as I expected.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Heart Art Studios – Autumn Quote, MFT – Mini Chicken Wire , twine, paint samples.

Take a look at Barb and Judy’s blogs to see what they have come up with.

Thank you for stopping by,


  1. Wow Nina,

    I can see the beauty of die-cuts, this is fabulous. I can tell the colors would be ideal for an Autumn themed card. What a great amount of work, but so worth it. Wonderful!
