Colorful Seasons Tin Ceiling Leaf
P retty fall card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and Foil Sheets pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Rich Razzleberry Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Copper Foil Sheets
- 2-3/4" square from Merry Merlot Cardstock
- 2-3/4" square from Very Vanilla Cardstock
- 2-1/2" square from Very Vanilla Cardstock
Insert the Copper Foil Sheets rectangle into the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Use the thin line drawn on the front flap of the folder to help you line up the foil sheet and get it straight. Place the folder with the foil sheet inside directly on your Big Shot Platform at the lowest possible setting. Place a Cutting Pad on top of the folder and run through the Big Shot.
VERY IMPORTANT: You are using only ONE Cutting Pad. If you try to use two, the sandwich will be too thick and you could damage the Big Shot.
Lightly sand the copper surface of the dry embossed foil sheet with a sanding block.
Tip: Sanding the foil sheet makes it easier for the ink to sink into the foil sheet in some areas in the next step.
Rub a Sponge Dauber across the open Merry Merlot Ink Pad to get it inky. Then, rub the inky dauber over the sanded, dry embossed foil sheet. Get more ink on the dauber as needed. Buff off excess ink with a clean tissue or paper towel. Keep adding ink until you get the look you want.
Tip: I just clean my Sponge Daubers when I'm done using them by running them under water until no more color is coming off. Then, I let them air dry. They may be stained, but they are clean enough to use with any color of ink in the future.
Adhere the dry embossed, inked foil sheet to the front of the Rich Razzleberry card.
As you are ready to stamp using the Colorful Seasons Set, place the cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp. Put a piece of paper (Grid Paper works great) on top of the mat to protect it from ink.
Mount the "may all your tomorrows..." sentiment from the Colorful Seasons Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Rich Razzleberry Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the larger (2-3/4") square of vanilla cardstock.
Pick out the square framelit from the Layering Squares Framelits that cuts out a square that is 2-1/4" wide. Place the stamped sentiment square on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the square framelit on top so it is centered over the sentiment (you will cut off the ends of some of the letters). Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Pick out the scalloped square framelit from the Layering Squares Framelits that cuts out a scalloped square that is 2-1/2" wide. Place the Merry Merlot square on the Cutting Pad on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the scalloped square framelit on top. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Adhere the matted sentiment square to the center of the front of the card using Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Mount the solid, large maple leaf image from the Colorful Seasons Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Rich Razzleberry Ink Pad. Stamp onto Grid Paper and then without re-inking in the center of the smaller (2-1/2") square of vanilla cardstock.
Mount the detailed, large maple leaf image on Block C. Ink it up with the Merry Merlot Ink Pad. Stamp it over the top of the previously stamped leaf image.
Pick out the matching, open, large maple leaf framelit from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. Place the stamped leaf image on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the open maple leaf framelit on top so it is centered over the stamped leaf image. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Use Paper Snips to trim the stem of the leaf down a little.
Adhere the leaf cut out to the front of the card so the leaf is pointing into the lower right corner and covers the lower right corner of the sentiment squares.
Pick out a triple copper leaf from the Leaves Trinkets. Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere it to the center of the stamped leaf image on the card front.
Cut a 3" piece of the Very Vanilla/copper 1/8" ribbon from the Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack.
Tie a half knot in the center of the ribbon. Trim the ends. Adhere the ribbon to the stems of the leaves using a Mini Glue Dot.
