Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #472

Good Morning!  Our Thursday challenge this week is a sketch.


This was a fun sketch.  It was a little different for me.  I decided to use some of the new product from the upcoming Holiday catalog.  So it's a sneak peek if you will.  The new catalog goes live on September 1st.  That's about a week away!

CCMC #472

The card base is the new Thick Very Vanilla measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4.  

The patterned paper is the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.  It's gorgeous!  The Early Espresso herringbone paper is 2 inches wide.  Adhere to the base and trim to fit. The leaf paper measures 2 1/2 x 3.

Wrap the Linen Thread around the card 4 times.  I usually tape this so that it's behind where the label will be.

And speaking of the label, that's new, too.  The Everyday Label Punch can be bundled with the stamp set Merry Little Labels for 10% off.  I used another coordinating stamp set called Labels to Love.  The outline was stamped in Early Espresso.  The sentiment had leaves over the top and bottom.  I used tape over that so that it would not print. Punch it out and use dimensionals for a little pop.

The leaves are from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.  Stamp the outline stamp in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla paper.  Ink up the solid leaf stamp in Lemon Lime Twist.  Add some Peekaboo Peach and some Cajun Craze ink with a sponge dauber in several places.  Do not completely cover up the green.  Using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, cut out the leaves.  Use dimensionals to adhere the leaves, too.  By the way, the Colorful Seasons stamp set and the Seasonal Layers Thinlits can be purchased together in a bundle with 10% savings!

Finish off with a bow of Linen Thread.  I wrapped the thread around four fingers several times.  Slid it off the fingers and tied it in the middle.  Use a glue dot to stick this down.

That's it.  The inside uses the stamp set Count My Blessings.  It's also in the Holiday catalog.

I just love this saying and the font.  The leaves are made the same as for the front.  To be honest, I have a smear I needed to cover.  I had planned on only one leaf.

That's my first fall card of the season.  I like it a lot.  We will be making this card at my September classes.
