Falling Leaves TSSC91

Ahh, I'm back with my Technostamper Monday Sketch Challenge! I've missed a few days with other issues so I'm glad to be back today with my challenge card! Today's sketch is pretty simple with three circles and three stripes to consider.

And here's my card. I used the wonderful Falling Leaves set (#115368, set of 9, $21.95, p. 27) that is new in the 2009-2010 Idea Book and Catalog; there are some great words in this set too!

I chose the Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper (#115668, p. 160) for it's beautiful fall images and color scheme. Rich Ruby Red cardstock is the card base, and I ran the card front through the Big Shot with the Squares Texturz Plate to give it some texture. I then added a Soft Suede cardstock layer at the top to which I added strips of three patterns of the DSP after I distressed the bottom edge with the Distresser Tool from the Cutter Kit. What a handy tool!

Note: Ruby Red cardstock size: 6" x 6-3/4" before folding to 6" x 3-3/8"; Soft Suede cardstock size: 2-3/8" x 5-3/4". This will fit into a standard 6-3/8" x 3-5/8" envelope.

For the circles I stamped one leaf in Elegant Eggplant, one in Always Artichoke and the circle image which says "Happy Thanksgiving" in More Mustard with the acorn in the center being colored in with the Soft Suede Marker before stamping. These were all layered on coordinating circles punched from card stock. The acorn in the center image was covered with Crystal Effects to make it stand out.

Stamps: Falling Leaves, Itty Bitty Backgrounds (#114996, set of 4, $14.95, pg. 132)
Inks: Elegant Eggplant, More Mustard, Always Artichoke; Soft Suede Stampin' Write Marker
Paper: Ruby Red, Whisper White, Soft Suede, Elegant Eggplant, Always Artichoke
Accessories: 1 3/8", 1 1/4", 1" Circle Punches, Cutter Kit, Big Shot, Squares Texturz Plate, Crystal Effects, Dimensionals.
