So Very Thankful- A CAS Card for Three Challenges :-)

Hi Stampers!

This card was created for the Pals Paper Arts PPA222 Color Challenge along with the CAS(E) This Sketch CTS95 Challenge and the Our Daily Bread Designs ODBDSLC214 Fall Inspired Challenge (although I am too late to link to the ODBD Challenge, I still want to give them credit for the inspiration :-))

If you have not already visited the challenge sites, I hope you will find the time to do so- there are so many wonderful examples from the Design Teams and the galleries!

To create this card:

On a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the Gorgeous Grunge splatter and line images in Early Espresso, So Saffron and Calypso Coral Classic Ink. 

Using Early Espresso Classic Ink 
stamp the sentiment from Pretty Patches: Apple, trim the panel and mount onto the Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Ink the background stamps using Calypso Coral, Early Espresso and So Saffron Classic Ink and stamp onto Very Vanilla cardstock. 

Use the Big Shot™ with the Maple Leaf Framelit™ to cut out the images from the background stamped panels.  

Use a Sponge Dauber with So Saffron Classic Ink to add a bit of So Saffron to the Calypso Coral leaf as well as the So Saffron leaf and sponge Early Espresso Classic Ink around the edges of all three leaves (adding a bit more Early Espresso to the central leaf toning down the Very Vanilla cardstock).

Mount each of the leaves onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals™ to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Stampin’ Up!- Gorgeous Grunge; Our Daily Bread Designs- Chalkboard Fan Background, Chalkboard Word Collage, Chalkboard Vine Background;  Wplus9 Design Studio, LLC- Pretty Patches: Apple

Ink:  Calypso Coral, Early Espresso, So Saffron

Paper: Very Vanilla    
Accessories: Big Shot™, Maple Leaf Framelit™ (non SU!)

Thanks again for stopping by- I am so very thankful for all of you- have a great Monday!!
