Sleepy Thankful | Video

Hello!  I've been so excited to pull my Copic markers out again.  It's been a long time since I used them regularly, and boy do I feel rusty with them!  Coloring has always been a good stress relief for me, and I love spending some time coloring an adorable stamped image like the little sleepy fox on today's card.

Today's card features a stamp set from Photo Play Paper's Fall Breeze collection, along with the Changing Seasons Embossing Folder from FSJ.  (affiliate links - please see disclosure, and full product list below).


I started my card with a piece of Whip Cream card stock cut to 5.25" x 4".  I stamped the little fox, and then masked his head off to stamp the pumpkin.  Then I went to work coloring him with my Copic markers (colors listed below, for techniques, please see the video above).

Once my image was colored in, I heat embossed my sentiment onto a strip of Tangerine Fusion card stock that was 1.5" wide.  I cut a slit in the center, and then trimmed from the corners up to create the fishtail for the banner.  Before adhering, I decided that my panel needed a bit more texture, so I partially embossed it with the embossing folder.  I put the card front into the embossing folder, and then ran it through a few different directions to emboss the top and right side of the card front.  Then, I used the blunt end of my bone folder to smooth the embossing as it approached the image.  The result is embossing that "fades" into the card stock.

I attached my sentiment panel to the card front with foam squares, and then attached the card front to a Cocoa Powder card base.  A few scattered pearls added some dimension and shine.
