Distress Ink Smooshed Maple Leaf Slimline Card | Tim Holtz Autumn Blueprints Stamp Set


Hello everyone thank you so much for stopping by, I had a lot of fun making this card and I cannot wait to share it with you so let's jump right in!!


As always I like to cut down my cardstock to start, for my slimline base I like to cut my cardstock to 7 inches by 8.5 inches and score at the 3.5 inch mark making my base 3.5 by 8.5 inches. I also cut down a piece of Neenah Desert storm cardstock with my Deckled Edge trimmer to be 1/4 of inch smaller than my base. I then stamped out the maple leaf from the Autumn Blueprint stamp set five times, 3 times on Distress watercolour cardstock in versafine onyx black ink and 2 times on heavy weight vellum with versamark ink and heat embossing with white embossing powder.


I used three colours of Distress Oxide ink in Salvaged Patina, Kitsch Flamingo and Speckleg Egg and smooched my watercolour panels into the colours, drying in between each layer until I was happy with how they turned out. I then fussy cut out all 5 of the Maple leavesand layed them across my panel trying to decide what layout I wanted. I then adhered the four outter leaves onto the kraft panel with some liquid glue and propped up the centre leave with some thin 3d foam squares.


I wanted to add a bit more to my card so I splashed on some gold watercolour across the whole panel and then added it to the edges of the Desert storm panel as well. I used an acrylic block to stamp down my sentiment and added some Gold Sparkle Crystals to the panel and called this card done. If you would like a more in-depth look at how this card came together please check out the video down below, I also have a full supplies list under the video in case you would like to know exactly what I used.


Thank you so much for stopping by I cannot wait to see you again soon!!
