CAS Gratitude for The Paper Players

Hi Stampers!!

I wanted to create a CAS card for this week’s PP172 CAS with Leaves from ThePaper Players (Nance’s Challenge).   I hope you have had a chance to check out all of the Design Team samples as well as the wonderful entries- they are all fabulous!!

I recently purchased a small leaf die cut that has an embossed image insert to complement the SU! Leaves Original Die and decided to use it for this card along with some retired rub-ons, current stamp sets and a quick, easy layout.

To create this card:

Use the Big Shot™ to cut the leaf die from a piece of Early Espresso cardstock and another cut with the insert on a piece of Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper (DSP) and using Sponge Daubers, lightly sponge Tangerine Tango and Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink around the edges and the veins of the leaves.

Punch out one more 2 ½” circle from Early Espresso cardstock to use a base and glue the Early Espresso circle with the die cut leaf onto the base circle.  Glue the embossed and sponged leaf into the center.

Stamp the sentiment from Fabulous Phrases using Early Espresso Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, punch out using the 1 ¼” Circle Punch.

On a piece of Soft Sky cardstock, rub-on the wheat spray from the retired Autumn Traditions rub-ons.  Using Early Espresso Classic Ink, stamp the script stamp from Background Builders and the small dot splatter type stamp from Gorgeous Grunge to add a bit of "texture" :-). 

Adhere two scrap strips of Early Espresso cardstock to the top and bottom of the panel and adhere the sentiment to the bottom of the panel.  Mount the panel onto a piece of Whisper White and stamp a few more images from Gorgeous Grunge at the upper top and bottom lower edge of the card front.

Adhere to another piece of Early Espresso cardstock, trim and add to the Soft Sky card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the die cut leaf circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals® as well to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Background Builders, Fabulous Phrases, Gorgeous Grunge

Ink: Early Espresso, Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry

Paper: Whisper White, Soft Sky, Sweater Weather DSP

Accessories: Big Shot™, retired Autumn Traditions rub-ons, Punches—2 ½” XL Circle, 1 ¼” Circle, non SU! Leaf Die with Embossing Insert

Thanks again for stopping by- have a wonderful Tuesday!

This is so very pretty, Julie! I love that you're resurrecting those rubons...they are scattered somewhere in a folder in my craft room! The colors you've chosen really make this beautiful leaf stand out! Thanks for playing with the Players this week!
