Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop for October. Our theme this month is Autumn or Halloween. I have chosen the beautiful Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to showcase autumn today.

My card started off with my concept of wanting to use the curtain fold on my card. Over this past week, I’ve been showcasing a series called Fun Ways with Designer Series Paper on my blog. Throughout this series, I’ve been sharing ideas and tips for making the most of your DSP.

The curtain fold is great because it shows both sides of our beautiful Designer Series Paper. Particularly with specialty paper such as this, it’s a shame not to be able to see both sides.

I folded the paper at 3cm, 4.5cm, 7.5cm, 9cm, 12cm and so on continuing on a length of DSP which was 26cm long. This gave me sufficient to go across my cardstock. I made a mark with a pencil at 4.5cm from the top on the right side and 2.5cm from the bottom left. Then I cut my paper across at these 2 points. Mountain and valley fold your score lines to form the curtain fold.

I added a pumpkin from the Harvest Hellos which I coloured with Stampin’ Blends. This stamp set also has an apple in the set which coordinates with the matching Apple Builder punch. A few extra leaves were added, including some Brushed Metallic leaves.

This beautiful paper is a must have as it’s copper and gold foil accents adds a richness which enhances the autumn colours of this suite.
