Two Cool Autumn Leaves Cards

FREE Gold Faceted Gems With August Host Code: F2K2F6NT


Hi Stamping Friends!

We're enjoying a cooler day in Fort Wayne, Indiana, today.  It's reminding me that cool, crisp days—and those falling leaves—are right around the corner!  Fall is my favorite season and one of my favorite card themes!

Today, I've got a couple of lovely autumn leaves cards created by my Too Cool Team members for a recent fall-themed swap.  Enjoy!

Designed by Karen Ellert-Flory.

Vintage Layering Leaves Thanks Card

Karen Ellert-Flory brought together the beautiful images from the classic Vintage Leaves stamp set with the terrific texture from the Layering Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder.  What an awesome combination!

Background Basics—The 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White background was spritzed lightly with water and embossed with the Layering Leaves Dynamic folder for a deep foliage texture.  It's adhered to a Whisper white card base.  Karen also added a 1-1/2" x 4" Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper banner, punched at the bottom with the Banner Triple Punch for a contrasting anchor element.

Fall Focal Point—The small Vintage Leaves image was stamped in Pear Pizzazz randomly over a 2-1/2" square piece of Whisper White.  The All Things Thanks sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink.  The layer is matted onto a 2-3/4" square of Old Olive, then adhered to the card front with SNAIL.
Falling Leaves—The same Vintage Leaves image was stamped three times in Chocolate Chip ink onto Whisper White scrap, then die-cut with the Layered Leaves Framelits and popped up with Dimensionals.

Finishing Touch—Karen added a 1/8" Old Olive Sheer Ribbon bow to the center leaf with a Glue Dot to finish the card.  So pretty!

Janet - colorful seasons fresh fig

Designed by Janet Shinn.

Colorful Seasons Copper & Fresh Fig Card

Janet Shinn created a delightful card also featuring leaves and a beautiful embossed background!

Background Basics—Janet adhered a 5-3/8" x 4-1/8" piece of Fresh Fig card stock onto a Whisper White card base.  The 5-1/4" x 4" Whisper White layer was first die-cut with the Lots of Labels Framelits to cut out a window, then the outer portion was embossed with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder.  Janet tied some Fresh Fig Woven Ribbon around the embossed layer, then popped it up with lots of Dimensionals to create a recessed window for the sentiment.
Sweet Sentiment—The Colorful Seasons greeting is stamped in Fresh Fig ink onto the Lots of Label die-cut, then it was adhered through the recessed window, directly onto the Fresh Fig background with SNAIL.

Copper Leaves—Janet stamped the Colorful Seasons leaf skeleton image in VersaMark onto Whisper White card stock.  It was sprinkled with Copper Embossing Powder and heat-setting it with Heat Tool until glossing and smooth.  She die-cut that image, as well as a Copper Foil shape, using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits dies.  They are attached under the ribbon with Dimensionals.  She finished the card with a single Rhinestone Jewel.  Clean and elegant!
