Falling for Leaves

I intended this post to go out this morning……as you can see it didn’t until late this afternoon. One of those days that things didn’t go as planned.

So now, on to a couple of pretty cards featuring the Fall for Leaves Stamp set & matching Detailed Leaves Thinlits. I have been using these leaves for many projects. I love all the layering and the Bright Copper & Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint I sponged on with a Sponge Dauber.

I started with Whisper White and Embossed the Scalloped going down the left side with the Sweetly Stitched Framelits. All the measurements will be at the end. I did a little stamping in Granny Apple Green, then I started layering all the leaves. I also used the Leaf Punch & the Sprig Punch. Notice that I didn’t take out all the pieces to those intricate leaves. I sponged all the leaves with Bright Copper Shimmer Paint. Tip: Shake the bottle and open, there is a little bit of paint in the lid and the Sponge Daubers fit perfectly. Sponge like you were using our ink. Some I did a lot, some only a little bit. I used a glue dot to add each layer. I added a double Linen Thread bow for the first card, and added it with another Glue Dot. To finish off I added more paint to the lid and used my Aqua Painter to splatter and added a few of the Frosted Epoxy Droplets. I layered the the Whisper White piece onto Blackberry Bliss and then the card base was Mango Melody.

This card was for a friend who lost her daughter last week. I went to the same high school as Robin did.

This card was for a friend, she brought me lunch and flowers a couple weeks ago. So nice of her to think of me.

This one used Very Vanilla, So Saffron & Garden Green for the card base. I added that strip across the top after Embossing the Zigzag on the left, and then some of the Braided Linen Trim with a bow. Again, I did a little stamping and then started layering the leaves with Glue Dots. I used the Vegas Gold to sponge on my leaves. After I did my splattering with Vegas Gold and a Aqua Painter I added a few of the Clear Epoxy Droplets. The sentiment is from Painted Glass Stamp Set in the Annual Catalog.

Here are a couple of close ups. The photo is a bit dark and didn’t notice it until after I had already mailed my cards.

Don’t forget to decorate the inside of your cards, especially if the card base is dark. I used another piece of Very Vanilla for the inside, I punched the little flower petals with the Detailed Trio Punch and stamped the leaves on the bottom corner.

I will say, that you will have to pay extra for postage, but I don’t mind, as these two cards were extra special.
