Simple Thanks

I think this is the first year I have ordered Stamptember products from Simon Says Stamp and had the time to use them in the month of September! And it's only the 16th of the month! A new record for me...usually I order late and when it arrives I put it aside until I get to it...which is weeks later. Yay for actually using new product!! 

Stand-alone dies are my favourite right now and the Leafy Square from the Stamptember release was a stand-alone die that called to me.  I thought it would be perfect to use for CAS(E) this Sketch challenge #339 this week. 

On an A2 white card base I used the Leafy Square to create an embossed impression right into the card, then cut it again and snipped off the leaves. I coloured the leaves in using Copic markers and adhered it over top of the impressed piece. The sentiment was cut using the thanks die from Simon Says Stamp, and heat embossed with Liquid Platinum powder. 

Here's the sketch I used:  

Thanks so much for stopping in and have a great day!

  1. Such a beautiful take on this sketch, Marcie! I love the color you added to the leaves and how you embossed the sentiment! And BRAVO for using new products right away!!! I tend to let my new stuff accumulate in a basket for quite a while before I bust into it---and then I find myself ordering more stuff before I've even used the stuff from the previous releases---ugh. It's a problem. I'll try to do better :)
