Coppery Thanks

Happy Sunday! As hard as it is to believe, this is the last true weekend of summer. Next weekend is Labour Day, which signals the end to carefree summer days and the beginning of fall. Today also marks the beginning of a new sketch challenge over at Sunday Stamps. Check it out...

Since fall is on my mind, here is what I came up with for the Design Team:

I have to admit, the product I am most excited about in the new Holiday Catalogue is the Copper Foil Sheets. I LOVE them...especially when they're embossed. Here I first die cut one corner of the 4" x 5-1/4" panel using the Botanical Builders Framelits and then I ran it through the Big Shot with the Petal Burst TIEF. SO pretty! I layered the embossed copper sheet on a same-sized-piece of Cajun Craze card stock. The leaves are from the Vintage Leaves stamp set, I stamped one in Early Epresso ink on Cajun Craze card stock and the other I heat embossed in copper on vellum card stock. I die-cut both using the Leaflets framelits.

I added some Delightful Dijon ribbon from the 3/8" Ribbon Trio Pack in the Holiday is so soft and has a lovely sheen...gorgeous ribbon! I needed a sentiment but didn't want to add another layer to take away from that embossed copper, so I pulled out an Expressions Natural Element (retired) from my glad I hoarded held onto some of those!

On the inside I added a Very Vanilla card stock panel on which I stamped more leaves from the Vintage Leaves stamp set in Early Espresso ink.

This sketch has so many possibilities. Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's ideas and then share your own take on it with us over at Sunday Stamps.

Have a super Sunday!
