SIP Challenge #121 with Stampin' Up! Vintage Leaves

Hello and Happy Tuesday again!  I had a wonderful weekend and have survived Monday again so all is good, right??  lol  As usual Tuesday means another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge and this time is another Tic-Tac-Toe with lots of options!

My Card qualifies to go in many directions with this Tic-Tac-Toe.  It could go down the first column, Leaf, Orange, and Twine, or straight across the middle with Orange, Wood and Embossing, or Diagonal with Die Cut, Wood and Twine.  How's that for coloring within the lines this time?  lol
I decided to pull out my favorite fall stamp set by Stampin' Up! Vintage Leaves and the Leaflet Framelits.  I also revisited a fun technique called Joseph Coat.   

I started out by sponging Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, and Wild Wasabi onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock.   I stamped the leaves onto the ink blended cardstock with Versamark and then clear embossed them.  Once embossed I used a brayer to bray Early Espresso Ink over the embossed leaves.  Once the ink dried, I used the coordinating Leaflet Framelits Dies to cut the leaves out.  I did the same type of ink blending onto another Bristol Smooth Cardstock for the background on this card.   The ink blended layer was cut into a panel with Avery Elle Wonky Stitches Dies.  I double matted it with Early Espresso Cardstock and then Pumpkin Pie Cardstock and then attached it to an Early Espresso A2 Card Base.  I used the smaller rectangle from the Avery Elle Wonky set to cut out a piece of the Wood Textures DSP.  I matted it with Early Espresso and then added it to the center of the card.  I stamped the sentiment (from the September Paper Pumpkin kit) using my Misti in Versamark first and then Early Espresso Ink and then clear embossed it.  The leaves were arranged in a bundle of sorts and then used Natural Twine to tie a bow in it.  The leaves were attached with dimensionals.  The smaller ones were adhered to the front with Tombow liquid adhesive. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings!  Tina
