Clean & Simple: Bring on Fall!

There's something in a simple hug

That always warms the heart,

It welcomes us back home

And makes it easier to part....

Johnny Ray Ryder, Jr., "A Simple Hug"

Good morning!
Today is the start of a new Clean & Simple Challenge at The Outlawz and it is my turn to post!

Fall officially starts tomorrow kicking off (for me) a mental image of cooler weather and the upcoming holidays! Leaves, scarecrows, pumpkins, fall colors! Bring it on people, we wanna to see it all. Just remember - have fun and keep it CAS

So a while back I bought, on clearance (because I never pay full price for any craft item if I can help it!) I found some Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink Spray which I brought home and promptly forgot about until now.

Now I want more and need to buy some other colors.

I took my embossing folder and spritzed it a couple of times the gold glow & gingersnap mist, placed my paper carefully inside it and then ran through my Big Kick. I then spritz it with the white giving the whole piece a nice shimmer that sadly can not be seen well in the photo :O(

I used a shimmery gold vellum for a back layer and had enough left over for the sentiment that I die cut ... Perfection with the gold shimmer on the card.

Anyway, the card looks fabulous in reality!


Card size is A2
Supplies: Card stock (Stampin Up!), Fall Leaf background EF (Darice), "Hugs" die (Sizzix), Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink Spray (Clearsnap), Ribbon (Stash).

Beautiful card. Love the shade you selected to highlight the pretty embossing on the card - it's so very subtle with the hint of fall color. Especially loved the way you've done die sentiment - which really brings out the colors in the embossed background so well. TFS & Hugs. Saw this at the Snippets Playground.

It looks fabulous here too so I can only imagine how fabulous it looks in real life! I just love the color of the spray you used and no the shimmer doesn't show in the photo but I can just envision how shimmery it must be. It's just beautiful! Hugs, Brenda
