Stamping Inkspirations October Blog Hop Sketch Challenge

Today we are hopping along with the Stamping Inkspirations October Blog Hop. This month we have a Sketch Challenge and our wonderful Design Team will be sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you to create your own projects with today's sketch. There are so many different ways to interpret sketches using the products that you have in your own crafting stash.
For my interpretation of this card sketch, I chose to create a Fall themed card design using the Autumn Leaves Bundle and coordinating All About Autumn 6"x6" Designer Series Paper. I chose to use the Fall Leaves design from the designer series paper to create the strips for my background. I love how it adds texture and dimension to the card design. This sketch is a wonderful way to showcase the beautiful designs in this pretty pack of paper.

This beautiful card has all the elements for a perfect Fall themed design. For my color palette, I chose to use Copper Clay and Early Espresso to compliment the designer series paper and I added Gold accents to step up the design. To create the card front, I embossed the Early Espresso card front with the Distressed Tile 3D Embossing Folder to add some texture. I attached the three strips of designer series paper to the card front, leaving a small space between each strip to create a thin border. For the focal image, I die cut the large leaf from Copper Clay cardstock using the Autumn Leaves Dies and then I heat embossed the sentiment from the Autumn Leaves stamp set using Versamark and Early Espresso ink combined with Clear embossing powder. I sponged the edges of the leaf die cut with Copper Clay Classic ink using a Sponge Dauber. I attached the leaf to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals, towards the center. For the small sentiment, I heat embossed the image with Gold embossing powder onto Early Espresso cardstock and used a die from the Autumn Leaves Dies to die cut it out. I attached it to the Copper Clay leaf below the large sentiment. To finish off the design, I added several Gold pearls from the Festive Pearls to the sentiment and the top right side of the embossed card front.
