Welcome back to SUO! Challenge 160 featuring Vintage Leaves with Copper Thanks for a Fall Theme challenge. I’m thrilled to be back after missing the last SUO! Challenge because of Hurricane Matthew. Life is finally starting to return back to normalcy. So, lets celebrate the change of seasons with a Fall Challenge. You are invited to come play along as this challenge starts today and ends on Friday, November 4th @ 6 AM EST.
Vintage Leaves with Copper Thanks
SUO! Challenge #160 – Fall Theme
I love the Hardwood background stamp! When I was thinking of what to make for a Fall card for this challenge, I knew I wanted to use the Vintage Leaves. As I fell asleep Sunday night, inspiration struck me! The Hardwood Background Stamp is the perfect backdrop for the Vintage Leaves. A bit of Linen Thread continues the fall theme by adding a rustic touch to the card. Next, I finished the card with a touch of copper with the embossed Thanks from the Hello You Thinlits.
It isn’t often that I use a card base other than Whisper White but today’s Fall Themed card just begged to have a Soft Suede card base with a layer of Delightful Dijon. The Hardwood background is stamped using Crumb Cake with the leaves featuring Cherry Cobbler, Tangerine Tango and Delightful Dijon.
Tips, Tricks and Reminders from SunnyGirlScraps:
- Background Stamps. Background stamps are a great way to set a tone and are very economical. The Hardwood background stamp is so versatile and great for layering!
- Vintage Leaves Stamp Set. The Vintage Leaves Stamp Set is absolutely gorgeous and is the perfect stamp set for fall but can also work for all seasons.
- Embossed Thanks. Are you wondering how I created the “copper thanks” for the card? To create the sentiment, I cut three of the thanks out then glued them together to set a thick base. Next, I took versamark and stamped the Thanks, sprinkled the embossing powder over the thanks then heat embossed. The embossing step is actually done twice.
