TCC159 Upon Every Remembrance of You


Hi Friends!

I am sharing a quick card designed using stamps, dies and designer paper from Stamp Simply. 

I wanted to create another card for The Card Concept #159 Colorful Fall Challenge (love this inspiration photo).  I was inspired by the leaves as well as the purple for the Clean and Simple card.

I am also participating in the CASOLOGY #395 “One” Challenge along with the Word Art Wednesday #509-#510 “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- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Using the Sizzix Thinlit Dies by Tim Holtz -Skeleton Leaves,  die cut the medium leaf from pearlescent gold metallic cardstock.

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

De-static the lower right hand corner with an embossing powder tool, ink the sentiment from Give Thanks , apply gold embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Mount the panel onto a piece of 4 ¼” x 5 ½” lilac cardstock and adhere to a white card base.

Trim a strip of the Craft Consortium Ink Drops 6x6- Vivid, trim to 4”, mount onto a piece of lilac cardstock and adhere to the card front.  I love this paper pad- the "faux" alcohol drops look so real, don't they?  Plus, no mess :-)

Adhere the pearlescent gold die cut leaf to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Give Thanks (Stamp Simply)

Ink/Mediums: Versamark

Cardstock/Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Lovely Lilac; Craft Consortium Ink Drops 6x6- Vivid, Luxury Pearlescent Metallic Cardstock #105- Gold 15 ct

Accessories/Tools: Gemini, Jr., Sizzix Thinlit Dies by Tim Holtz Skeleton Leaves, Embossing Powder Tool, Extra Fine Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Tool
