Love of Leaves Glad You're In My Life Cards
I enjoy adding a variety of blues to my fall leaf combinations, so I experimented with two fresh color palettes on these cards. Did you know that Stampin' Up! selected these leaf shapes to represent leaves from places around the world where they sell their products. Too Cool!
Here's a list of the different leaves:
• Horse Chestnut (Europe & Japan)
• Hawthorne (Europe & New England)
• Woolly Rambuton (Australia)
• Red Carabeen (Australia) / Beech (Europe & Japan)
• Poplar (United States)
I used most of the leaf shapes on these cards!.
Background Basics—I started with a 4-1/4" x 1-1/2" strip of decorative paper from the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper. It's mounted onto a Gray Granite card base.
Lovely Leaves—Next, I stamped the leaves onto a 2-3/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Whisper White. I began with the largest leaf stamped twice in Mint Macaron. Then, the next largest leaf stamped twice in Misty Moonlight. I finished by filling the in the blank spaces with a smaller leaf in Bermuda Bay and the smallest leaf in Gray Granite.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Love of Leaves sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink onto a Whisper White Ornate Frames die-cut. It's popped up with Dimensionals.
Finishing Touches—I die-cut two matching leaves with the coordinating Stitched Leaves dies. These dies are so fun! You can cut the leaf outlines for any of the leaf styles with one of the dies. For even more detail, you can add the second die that fits inside the outline shape and embosses the vein detail on the leaf. It looks so fantastic! I die-cut one leaf in Gold Foil and one in Gray Granite and adhere them with a Dimensionals and some SEAL adhesive. I finished with a Misty Moonlight In Color Enamel Dot. Pretty, pretty!
Two Cool—My second version begins with a strip of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP on a Crumb Cake card base.
Lovely Leaves—My leaves are, from largest to smallest leaves, Just Jade, Cinnamon Cider, Pretty Peacock and Crumb Cake.
Finishing Touches—I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock, then added die-cut leaves in Copper Foil and Just Jade. I finished with a single Champagne Rhinestone Jewel.
