A big Congrats to Cathie, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS561)! She has a beautiful, growing little gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the Thanksgiving theme & used similar colors, but I used a different layout, different images & used embossing resist as my technique.

My card is pretty quick & easy.  I started by stamping & embossing the two leaves in white across mostly the top & left side. I had to do just a little masking. Then I sponged on Distress oxide & regular inks & blended them toward the bottom. After die cutting, I turned the thin layer upside down & put it back then stamped the greeting w/ the Versafine. A single embossed, sponged & fussy cut leaf was added on top.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge (FS560)! A big congrats to Jennie, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a big, beautiful gallery & after much browsing, I settled on THIS to case. I kept the pumpkin & Thanksgiving theme but used different images, a little different layout & only a strip of dry embossing instead of a full bg.
For my gold pumpkin card today, I gold embossed this lovely Filigree Pumpkin onto ivory c/s then die cut it & added a gold pierced circle layer behind it. The square panel behind them is a small bg I made w/ Distress oxide inks & stamped over it w/ gold ink using the Splatter Bg.  The larger ivory layer has the greeting gold embossed & I also added a little gold embossing all around the edges. The long rust color strip was a leftover that I dry embossed w/ an embossing folder.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For my autumn card, I colored the lovely image w/ Copics, then die cut the Leaves Reverse across the corner & inserted leaves I die cut out of patterned paper. I didn’t care for the blank spots the leaves left at the edges so I die cut a narrow frame out of another pattern in the paper collection & attached it on top & added a rust layer underneath. The greeting was die cut out of the rust & I used a couple of dk brown Copics to shade the bottom part of it. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
