Spellbinders Die Templates and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist

I had such a great time making this project to share with you today.

Spellbinders S4-228 Nested Maple Leaves
Spellbinders S4-121 Doodle Parts
Spellbinders S4-227 Pumpkins Nestabilities®
Spellbinders S7-017 On The Vine Border Grand
Tattered Angels - Glimmer Mists: Gold, Coffee Shop, Forest Green, Sunflower.
Hero Arts Stamps: Happy Thanksgiving
Copic Sketch Markers: YG63, YR04 Copic Airbrush System
(2) 5 1/2" tags
(2) Vanilla cardstock (5 1/2 X 4 1/4)
Organdy Ribbon: Brown and Gold (approx. 12" of each 3/4" wide ribbon) and 1 piece of 1/4" gold ribbon (Approx. 10 inches)
Memento Ink: Rich Cocoa
Clear Embossing Powder
Heat Gun

The base of the card is a 5 1/2" tag. Using scrap paper, cut the largest Spellbinders Nested Maple Leaf die template. Use that as a stencil, laying it across your large tag and spraying with one color of Glimmer Mist, moving the stencil and spraying with another color until the tag is covered as desired. Let dry, or if you are impatient (as I am) use a heat gun to dry it. Isn't it beautiful?

Using the other tag, spray all the colors across the surface. Dry, and then cut/emboss On The Vine Border Grand, twice, using all the prepared tag. Set aside. Cut/emboss the largest Pumpkins Nestabilities ® from one of the pieces of vanilla cardstock. Using the Copic Airbrush System and Sketch Markers, color the pumpkin, masking the stem. Color the stem green.

Color the other piece of the vanilla cardstock using a base of Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist, then airbrush with the Orange Copic Marker. Glue them to the pumpkin as shown, then cut again with the Pumpkins Nestabilities ® die template. Trim ends of the Doodle Parts which are beyond the edge of the pumpkin.

Stamp sentiment on the top right corner of the tag and clear emboss.

Layer two 3D Foam Squares on the back of the pumpkin and adhere it to the large tag. Cut pieces of the vine and adhere to the card with some leaves over the pumpkin and some behind. Use 3D Foam Squares behind some of the leaves. Thread the two wider ribbons through the hole in the tag. Use the narrow gold ribbon to tie them together. Carefully heat with heat gun to curl the ribbons.

Thanks for stopping by, and come back soon!
