The Little Red Farmhouse with Plaid - Try Stampin' on Tuesday #423

Labour Day weekend, an indication that summer is winding down. My thoughts drift more and more to preparation for fall related activities and Christmas.  I love this time of year, I just don't like the snow that is sure to come.

This week, the challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday #423 is a sketch challenge, with an optional   theme  to add "plaids or checks".

The base card of Shaded Spruce card stock is layered with Whisper White embossed with the Stylish Scrolls embossing folder.  A strip of Wrapped in Plaid DSP is adhered to the embossed layer on the left side.  The reverse pattern of this DSP is placed across the top.

The focal image is the farm house from the Scenic Season stamp set.  The image is coloured with Stampin' Blends and Dazzling diamonds were added over areas with snow.  The image was then die cut with the Stitched Square die and matted with a slightly larger Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Dimensionals adhered this focal image to the card front.

The sentiment, from the same card set, was embossed with gold embossing powder on Whisper White , and matted with Cherry Cobbler card stock before adhering it to the card front below the focal image.

Three glitter enamel dots added to the upper card completed the card

Stamps:  Scenic Scenes
Inks:  Black Memento, Stampin' Blends (Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede, Shaded Spruce) Early Espresso marker, Versa Mark
Papers:  Shaded Spruce.Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Wrapped in Plaid DSP
