Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #394 – Thanks/Thanksgiving

Hey lovelies, I hope you are well 🙂
It is time for a new challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
This week the challenge is


This week we are showcasing Tim Holtz  You don’t have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


And here is my card for the challenge. 
As soon as I saw we was using Tim Holtz products I had to get out my Distress Inks and for this card I have used- Bundled Sage, Ripe Persimmon & Barn Door (all are linked below), along with The Autumn Greetings Stamp Set from Simon. 
For the gold spalts I used my Spectrum Noir gold sparkle pen and squeezed some out onto an acrylic block and then flicked across the card. 
I finished the card off by heat embossing the sentiment onto some vellum and adhering to the card. 

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Spectrum Noir September challenge- Kraft

Hey lovelies, I hope you are all well ? 
Today I am sharing my DT card  for the Spectrum Noir September Challenge. The theme is Kraft, you can using it anywhere, colour on it, die cut it, use kraft card just as long as Kraft is featured somewhere on your project and if you win you will get $30/£30 worth of Spectrum Noir Goodies !
I went for a thankful card using my Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils on some Kraft card. 
If you have never coloured on Kraft card then I highly recommend it, especially with pencils. 
 I have used Lawn Fawn Happy Harvest Stamp set (all supplies are listed and linked below) and I have stamped the wagon with pumpkins and some of the pumpkins using Archival Potting Soil as I thought black with be too harsh. I then coloured them using my Colourblend pencils and cut out using the co ordinating dies. 
The paper has been in my stash for ages and was a loose sheet that someone gifted me so I have no idea where it is from sorry, but I die cut the window using some rectangle dies and then created a Kraft card base and i marked out where the window will be. 
I then put the paper to one side and stamped up the corn and leaves using Archival – Dandelion, LEaf Green & Orange Blossom. 
I then heat embossed the sentiment with Gold Embossing powder. 
I die cut the frame die from the same Kraft card and started to adhere everything to the base. 
I foam mounted the main part, the wagon and one of the pumpkins to give some dimension. 
The twine is a thicker twine I had and i preferred it on this card to the thinner twine I normally use. 
And that was the card done.
