Autumn Blessings


Hi Friends!

This week Stamp Simply has a sale on all Fall stamps, dies and paper!

For my fall card, I decided to pull out the Autumn Blessings stamp set along with the Sizzix Thinlit Dies by Tim Holtz -Skeleton Leaves, the new Doodlebug Design Pumpkin Spice 6x6 paper pad and other dies/supplies from Stamp Simply.

As many of you who follow my blog know, I enjoy playing along with online challenges and will be linking this card to the 
Addicted to Stamps and More #410 “Die Cuts and/or Stencils” Challenge and the Word Art Wednesday “#501-#502 Anything Goes” Challenge.

If you have not had a chance to visit the Stamp Simply blog or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Using the Sizzix Thinlit Dies by Tim Holtz -Skeleton Leaves, die cut several leaves from the gold, silver and copper metallic sheets in the Luxury Pearlescent Metallic 105# Cardstock pack.

For the background panel, trim a piece of the gold metallic cardstock to 4 ¼” x 5 ½”.

Also, trim a piece of copper metallic cardstock to approx. 4 ⅛” x 5 ¼” and mount onto the gold panel. FYI- I love the Luxury Pearlescent Metallic 105# Cardstock  - it is a solid color cardstock with the colors on both sides.

Emboss a piece of 4” x 4” piece of white cardstock with the Darice Wire Fence Embossing Folder, adhere to the copper panel.

Add a strip of the teal plaid paper from the Doodlebug Design Pumpkin Spice 6x6 Paper Pad, adhere to the card front overlapping the embossed white panel.

Adhere the die cut gold, copper, and silver leaves, keeping the ends toward the area that will be covered with the ribbon and sentiment.

Add a strip of the May Arts ⅜” White Crochet Lace to the front of the card (overlapping the die cut leaves).

Adhere a strip of the May Arts ⅝” Teal Twill Ribbon  wrapping the ends behind the panel and mount the background panel onto a white card base.

Add a few strands of the gold and copper metallic cardstock (these were “trimmings” from the edges of the background panels that I would normally recycle or trash).  FYI- I “curled” the ends around a pencil to help break down the fibers and distress the strands. 

De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the verse sentiment from Autumn Blessings with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto the prepared panel, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Once the embossing has cooled, die cut the sentiment with the Spellbinders Paper Grace- Hemstitch Ovals Die (I used the second largest oval die).  Die cut two additional ovals from white cardstock to layer behind the verse sentiment. 

Mount the sentiment onto the card front using dimensional foam or chipboard.

Finish off the card with bronze rhinestones
