Autumn Thanks Fall

Good afternoon, and welcome. Here's the 2nd card created with the Echo Park Autumn Thanks die. The inlay part comes from this card;


- Background sponged with DI Peacock feathers, then die cut with Echo Park die. Adhered this to a white card base, then using some liquid glue on the die letters, inlaid the positive letters back into the negative openings. The tiny bits in the top of the 't' got lost and so added some marker in the white space. Don't think it is too obvious.

- Oak leaves were made using soda can metal, alcohol inks in fall shades, and die cut with the Sizzix Thinlets 660955 die. This die has 2 sizes of various leaf shapes, and I found mine at our local Hobby Lobby on sale (30% off...rats! I couldn't use my 40% off coupon then!!)

Other than losing the tiny bits of the inner t, this was a fast card. Another one for the stash. Now just need to make some inserts, get these in the mail!

Thanks for stopping by. Hugs & come again when you can.

The bits you lost absolutely don't show Mary, good thinking to fill in the blanks with a marker. Love the peacock feathers color. Hugs Veerle x

I love the browns and oranges which go beautifully with the Peacock Feathers ink Mary and more of those soda can leaves and that lovely large sentiment. A really bright and pretty card. x

Hello Mary Lovely back ground Don't have that one in my DI's must put it on my wish list and good idea using the Soda can. I am all for reusing anything I can. Sorry I haven't been in touch finding it hard to cope at the moment.
Hugs and look after yourself.

Beautiful card!!

Shona Erlenborn said...

Great card Mary! What a great way to use the negative pieces of the other card. No-one would know that anything were missing from the "t". Really liking the soda can leaves too. Great job.

Hi Mary,
I love this wonderful card and the colours and design are awesome.
Those colours look so very wonderful together, and I do very much like your design.
I see you have done your usual super soda can leaves, and their colour is superb also.
Love and big hugs from my house to yours.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

I love these colors, Mary! And I always lose those bits of letters. I can't tell it on your card though! Love the leaves and the added texture of the metal! Beautifully colored!

Donna said...

This is a beautiful far card Momma Mary! I am so loving that background inking you did-so vivid and pretty. Your inlayed sentiment looks great! If you hadn't said anything about losing a piece of the "t", we would have never know it, so nice save with the marker!! Love the leaves done out of a soda can and alcohol inks, they look fabulous. Hugs, Brenda

Nancy Stislow said...

How beautiful! This is one of those cards that I'd describe as a happy card! The colors are so cheerful and LOVE the gold sentiment, Mary! It just pops from your gorgeous background!

Bold and beautiful, Mary ... those AI soda can leaves are so striking against the delicious peacock feather background! Hugs, Anita :)

Loll said...

Great two-fer card (as Darnell would say). Great idea to use the die-cut sentiment from your first card to be the focal point of this lovely fall card. The soda can leaves are really pretty and look amazing on that gorgeous blue background. xx

Carol L said...

This turned out to be a pretty card! I love that color blue, and those coppery leaves look so pretty against the background. Good for you using soda can metal - I tried that one time and remember a nasty cut on one of my fingers! Well done.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Love those metal leaves. They really pop against that awesome blue background.
