Give Thanks- Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge

Hi Stampers! 

I wanted to play some more with some of my newly acquired stamps and decided to create a card for the HandStamped Sentiments HSSIC90 Theme Challenge- Giving Thanks. 

Again, their Design Team has created so many different projects- if you have a minute, check them out!

To create this card:

Ink your brayer with More Mustard and apply the ink lightly to a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Use the brayer to apply Cajun Craze and Riding Hood Red to the same cardstock as well.

Use the Embossing Buddy® to de-static the brayered cardstock and stamp the leaf images with Versamark™ ink.   Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.  Once the embossing powder has cooled, sponge Early Espresso ink over the leaf images and gently wipe off the ink from the leaves. 

With the Big Shot™ and the Top Note Bigz™ Die, cut a two die cuts- one from Early Espresso and the other from embossed leaf panel.  Cut the leaf panel Top Note shape in half and trim the serrated edge off the piece that will be used for this card (save the other half for another project). 

With the Big Shot™ and the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder emboss a piece of the More Mustard cardstock- adhere this embossed panel to an Early Espresso cardstock layer.

Emboss the lower half of the Top Note Die with the Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and mount the Top Note shape onto the More Mustard layer. 

Stamp the sentiment with Early Espresso Classic Ink onto Very Vanilla­ cardstock and add a few leaves stamped with Riding Hood Red (stamp off before stamping onto the sentiment).  Punch out with the Decorative Label Punch and layer onto a piece of embossed More Mustard (punched with the same punch from the Square Lattice embossed panel- I punched this one from behind the Top Note area where you would never see :-)).

Spray the entire card front with Champagne Shimmer Paint (mixed with 70% alcohol) and add the 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon.  Mount onto a layer of Riding Hood Red to finish off the card.
