Happy Thanksgiving- Three in One!


Hi Stampers! 

Another week and finally a chance to stamp and catch up on a few of my favorite weekly challenges! 


I wanted to create a card using the beautiful colors from this week’s ColourQ CQC111 Challenge along with the FMS11 Sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.   I also decided to add a Rosette (had so much fun making these for the Friday Mashup! FM33 Challenge)….again, if you have not already checked out these sites, take a few moments to visit- the Design Team samples as well as all of the other entries are just fabulous! 

To create this card:

Use the Big Shot™, emboss a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and the Square Lattice Embossing Folder with a piece of Pear Pizzazz. 

Using Versamark™ ink, stamp the leaf images onto Whisper White cardstock and heat emboss with Stampin;’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder.  Once the embossing has cooled, randomly apply Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink using the Aqua Painter (push the lid of the inkpad to the pad to lift the ink with the Aqua Painter).  Lightly wipe the excess ink from the embossed areas and heat with the Heat Tool to dry the watercolor.  Stamp the background stamp with Crumb Cake Classic Ink and finish the focal image with the seal using Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink.

Mount the focal image onto Whisper White, stamp the sentiment with Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink and layer the pieces onto the Whisper White card base.

Cut three pieces of Pumpkin Pie Designer Series Paper into 6” x ½” strips.  Use the Simply Scored™ tool to score every ¼”, fold and adhere together at the ends.  Draw up the circle into the rosette, use a Pop-Up Glue® Dot to hold the rosette and press an Antique Brad into the center to hide the glue (I removed the prongs on the back of the brad).  Use another Glue® Dot to adhere the rosette to the card. 

 Stamp Sets:  French Foliage, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink: Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Versamark™

Cardstock: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie DSP

 Accessories:  Big Shot™, Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders- Vintage Wallpaper, Square Lattice, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder, Aqua Painter, Simply Scored™. Antique Brad

Thanks again for stopping by!- I hope all of you have a wonderful day and if you have time to play with paper, try a rosette and join us at the Friday Mashup!

I'm quickly becoming a big fan of your creations! I love the idea of using watercoloring (instead of the usual sponging) for the emboss resist technique. Your colors are wonderful on this card ... and I also like how you balanced your rosette with your sentiment placement.
