With Gratitude



Hi Friends!!

Happy Monday! I had a chance to create a Clean and Simple Mixed Media card last night using the retired stamp set, With Gratitude from Stampin’ Up!  It has been years since I had a chance to ink up this set and with the leaves starting to change here on the East Coast, I was in the mood for an Autumn/Fall card :-)


If you have not had a chance to drop by the above challenge sites yet, I hope you do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!

Ink the leaf image from With Gratitude using Versafine™ Onyx Black onto white cardstock and heat set with a heat tool.  Watercolor the image with water-based markers and use the heat tool in between layers.  Once you are satisfied with the coloring, add shimmer with a clear glitter pen and copper shimmer paint.

Watercolor the background with distress ink and use the same distress ink with the “smooching” technique- pressing the ink onto a piece of acetate, smoosh with a bit of water and press onto the background.  Heat with a heat tool and die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die.

Emboss the card front with a woodgrain embossing folder, mount the watercolor die cut image with dimensional foam (or chipboard).

Emboss the sentiment with gold embossing powder, trim and mount onto the card front with dimensional foam (or chipboard).

Use a paintbrush with water to splatter a bit of white shimmer paint over the background to finish off the card.

Your coppery leaf is perfect for the autumn season Julie and pops against the soft blue background. Love the peek of white bark embossing too. Thanks for playing along with my gratitude challenge over at The Paper Players this week!

Absolutely beautiful, as always, Julie! I love the color of the leaf against the blue background. This sentiment, with its pretty cursive font, has always been one of my favorites! Thank you for sharing with The Paper Players this week!
