Stampin’ Up! Copper Tile Thanksgiving for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Hop

inkin-krew-blog-hop-banner2

Good Tuesday Everyone! What a weekend we had, rain, rain and more rain. My farm has had more rain in the past 3 weeks than in all of June, July, August and the first 2 weeks of September. I wanted to mow one last time, but that may not happen. Oh, well!

Today several of the talented members on Amy’s Inkin’ Krew are hopping, so let’s get on with it. Our theme is “Give Thanks”, and here is what I created. I just love the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder (DTIEF), and chose to do it in Copper Foil Sheets.

Making the embossed copper was the first step. Next I used Versalmark ink to stamp the three leaf image from the Rooted in Nature bundle all over a panel of Cajun Craze.The Copper panel was adhered to this mat with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out some of the 1/4″ Copper Trim and stretched it wider, then covered the seam with it. I used a strip of Tear and Tape to make sure it stayed put, then wrapped it over the back and secured it with tape. This was adhered onto the Early Espresso card base with Liquid glue.

Now for the fun. I first cut all the pieces I needed for the collage as follows using dies from: Winter Woods Bundle-the bare tree cut from a piece of Nature’s Roots DSP; First Frost Bundle- berry branch (2) one from Wood Textures and one from Country Lane DSP; Rooted in Nature Bundle – triple leaf (embossed and die cut) (2) from Crushed Curry, and a Pumpkin Pie leafy branch; Seasonal Layers – large leaf from a previous endeavor of Grapefruit Grove sponged with Old Olive, and 2 small leaves, one from a previously sponged panel from another project and one from Copper Foil Sheets.

All of this was dry arranged on an oval using the #3 die from layering ovals (numbered from smallest to largest) cut from a scrap of Wood Textures DSP. When I was satisfied with the look, everything was adhered using Liquid Glue. Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back lift it off the front a bit.

To finish this art collage, I fussy cut one of the pumpkins from Toil and Trouble DSP, used Liquid Glue to adhere it to a scrap of Pumpkin Pie and fussy cut again. I didn’t want to use more Stampin’ Dimensionals, but didn’t want it flat either.

The sentiment is from the Pleasant Pheasant stamp set. After rubbing my Embossing Buddy over the pumpkin, it was stamped in Versamark, then heat embossed with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder. To add more dimension though, I used my stylus from the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to enhance the grooves in the pumpkin. Liquid Glue used again here to attach it over the leaves. That finished the front.

On the inside, I stamped the berry branch from Frosted Floral in Crumb Cake, twice, on a panel of Crushed Curry. Over this I rubbed my Embossing Buddy, then stamped the other sentiment from Pleasant Pheasant in Versamark. This was then heat embossed in Copper Embossing Powder. Liquid Glue adhered this panel to a mat of Cajun Craze and into the card base.

Card done!

The envelope front has a pair of the Rooted in Nature triple leaves stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder.2

For the flap, I used the watermark treatment on a panel of Cajun Craze using Versamark ink and the triple leaf stamp from Rooted in Nature. Liquid Glue was used to adhere this to the flap. 3I hope you enjoy this card. I seldom repeat a card, but this one might be the exception.

  1. What a gorgeous card! I love all the details on it–using the stylus to give depth to the pumpkin is genius. I especially love reading all the details on how you did each leaf, twig and tree so a big thank you for not only the time invested in making the card, but for the strong instructions as well. It is a work of art!

    1. Oh, my! Thank you so much Susan, for taking the time to give me the kind of feedback I need to continue doing what I do. I have wondered if the time spent giving instruction is wasted because folks would prefer just the basics. I so appreciate your comments!

    1. Thank you so much, Connie! I have several ‘favorites’, but this tin tile DTIEF is pretty near the top of the list. I wanted to put a ‘tin’ ceiling in my kitchen, but haven’t done it…..yet. Just haven’t found the style I want. I think this embossing folder lends itself well to many styles of cards.
