Colorful Seasons for the Retro #192 Challenge & #PP611

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card was inspired by the Tic Tac Toe Challenge @ Retro Rubber .  I chose Die Cut, One Word & Patterned Paper. & The 'Changing Seasons' theme challenge over @The Paper Players.  Please click on the hyperlinks and visit the challenge blogs.  

Colorful Seasons Stamp Set, #143726 is a retired photopolymer stamp set with coordinating dies called Seasonal Layers Thinlits™ Dies, #143751.  I don't know the age of these products, but they were available when the dies were called Thinlits and we had the Big Shot, so pre 2020 I guess  :)

Assembly & Trix,

*  Emboss a Kraft Note Card, #159247 with the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder, #159847, then ***Trix, use a tiny paintbrush to lightly touch the raised sections with VersaMark Ink, and heat emboss with Gold Embossing Powder, #155555.  

*  Die cut the 'Muskoka Chair' with Pretty Prints DSP, #159245, then adhere to the card base with Glue Dots.  ***Trix, roll the glue dots to fit into the slats of the chair.

*  Stamp the 'smile' sentiment on Kraft paper, #156325 with VersaMark ink and heat emboss before fussy cutting.  Adhere with mini dimensionals.

*  Adhere a gold bow with Simply Elegant Trim, #156325 with a glue dot.

  1. Wow, Lesley, I love the gold effects over the embossing of the background - stunning! Great choice for a pretty Fall card!

    1. Thx so very much Heather! Love the Tic Tac Toe challenge so hard to chose which line to play :)

  2. Love the gold detailing on the embossed leaves Lesley - I feel like I could sit in that chair with a blanket on my knees feeling properly cosy amidst the falling leaves! Thanks for playing my theme challenge over at the Paper Players this week!
