Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing a card I created for the Tim Holtz Sizzix Halloween YouTube Live launch.  I decided to give this Colorize Candlelight Thinlits set more of an autumn look, mostly because I couldn’t resist making fall leaves!

Love these new sets!

Oak Leaf Impresslits 665374
Candlelight Colorize 665552 

I used Distress Mixed Media Heavystock papers coloured with various fall colour combinations.  These were created with Distress sprays, Distress Oxide sprays and Distress Halloween Mica Stains.

My candles were die-cut with coloured Mixed Media Heavystock and the lantern from Distress Metallic Kraftstock. Sizzix has great videos to assist you with constructing all the Colorize die sets. 

For my lantern, I cut out a piece of acrylic, tinted it with alcohol ink, and adhered it behind the die-cut. I then applied a small amount of the new Halloween Distress Crypt Grit Paste. 

I’ve also used this new 3D Foliage Embossing Folder.  Mixed Media Heavystock was used to emboss a piece, then trimmed slightly small than the Lace Baseboard Frame TH93786. This was coloured very lightly with Antique Linen Distress Oxide Spray. I just wanted a light touch of color.

Foliage 3D Embossing Folder 665252

Brown Distress Crayon was used on my Lace Baseboard Frame TH93786 in all the grooves to highlight the lace texture.  The leaves were cut out with the Oak leaf Impresslit.  Love the way this die embosses and die-cuts the leaf!  I know you are wondering what size my card is... I thought I had written it down somewhere, but in all my scrappy mess, I can't seem to find it.  It's a large one!  I don't really make specific sizes of cards, I just cut the card base to fit my design.  I also like to layer with a few mats of cardstock to give dimension to my cards. The background paper is from the Tim Holtz Abandoned paper pack, machine stitched around the edge.  I've also added in some tinted Mummy Cloth and a Quote Chip TH94045.

Here's another look at my finished card!  Love the Candlestick and Lantern set, I can see this as a Christmas card too, just change the leaves to winter foliage.

Thanks so much for visiting, I have more to share. 
 I will be taking a short break, a very long wait to finally see our granddaughter (and of course her mom and dad) on Vancouver Island.  It's been over a year, she went from a tiny baby to a walking, talking, toddler!  If only we could see our older son and daughter soon also, I would be a happy momma. One is in New York and the other in Australia.  Unfortunately it could be awhile.

Until next time.

Another beautiful project! Autumn is my favorite time of year, so this one had my heart as soon as I saw it. I just spent the nicest Sunday afternoon making one for myself. Thanks for the lovely inspiration and tutorial.
