Hello friends!  I'm sharing a card today created for the Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 4 Facebook Reveal.

I used the new Sizzix Leaf Print Thinlits set and a Stamper's Anonymous Gingham Stencil.


Love the different ways you can use this leaf set, can never have enough leaves!


I started by cutting out the negative leaf dies with black Kraftstock and matted a piece of Metallic Kraftstock(I think it's the Champagne TH94021) underneath (mat this after the stencilling!  I decided to stencil after I matted and had to redo!).  I machine stitched around my black rectangle before adhering the mat.

For the stencilling, apply Ranger's Distress Crackle Texture Paste TDA71303 on your black kraftstock.  I didn't use the whole stencil, just a portion of the centre and the edges weren't even. While this was still wet, apply Fossilized Amber Embossing Glaze.  I just used my fingers to apply, as I just wanted it the central area, tap off the excess, and apply a small amount with the Crackling Campfire Embossing glaze on the edges.  You will have the two colours mix a bit, that's why I didn't want to use a lot, because it won't go back in your jar.  You can always save the extra in a little bag for future use. Set this aside to air dry, and then once dry, heat with your heat tool. You can apply a small amount of Distress Crayon in the cracks to accent them.

Next, I die-cut the solid Leaf Framelits from Tim Holtz Ephemera pieces.  Some were labels, others, small journalling tags, but they all had a beige tone.  I like that the printing is quite small on the ephemera, so it shows underneath the small leaves.  You can always use patterned cardstock too. The coordinating Thinlits were die-cut with Metallic Kraftstock which I had applied adhesive sheets(Sizzix Adhesive Sheets) behind, before cutting out.  I also cut out a leaf framelit (this will be solid) in metallic kraftstock, this goes behind the word, 'True'.

I added a bit of colour to my die-cut printed pieces with Distress ink( it was Crackling Campfire) before adhering the Metallic Kraftstock.  I also die-cut a few pieces of the Holiday Brushstroke Thinlits 664736 in metallic for extra foliage.  

My words were die-cut used Tim Holtz Alphanumeric Tiny Type Upper Thinlits set and the Metallic Kraftstock.  'True' was die-cut from my first reject of stencilled cardstock.  Never throw out the rejects!
I also applied adhesive sheets to the backs before die-cutting.  The solid leaf was distressed before adhering the word 'true'.  Adhere all your letters, leaves and foliage.  To finish off my card, I dyed a piece of seam binding with Crackling Campfire distress spray, made a bow and a small baseboard piece from
Junk Drawer Baseboards TH94044 was also adhered. This was adhered to my kraft card base.

Thanks so much for visiting, I will be back with more of my holiday makes!

Until next time,
