Hello everyone! Popping in with a couple of cards that feature... yes... leaves, lol! I recently got my Spellbinders small die kit for October and I just had to make something with it. I went with the colors from Color Throwdown and I will be adding it to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of layering. I did a lot of layering with this one! I die cut the main layer pieces from black cardstock and all the little leaves from kraft and a cranberry red cardstock. I then layered on all the little leaves. That was quite the task! I then linked up all the pieces on a cream colored cardstock panel. The sentiment is from a Spellbinders Glimmer plate set and I foiled it in red on to kraft cardstock. The sentiment has a matching die so I used that to trim it out and popped it up in the center. I added the panel to a kraft cardstock base to finish things off.
This next cards also features leaves and I will be sending it off to CAS(E) this Sketch (thanks for the Honorable Mention!), the Card Concept and the Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash challenge. Whenever I can (which isn't often!) I tried to pick up something from Reverse Confetti when they have a new release. I was able to get the new In All Things stamp and die set so I used that for my card. I stamped the wreath using VersaFine Acorn ink and then watercolored very simply using the Altenew 12 pan watercolor set. Once I had enough layers of color and it was dry I die cut it with the matching die. For the vertical element in the CTS layout I used dark green and gold twine. I created a little bow for the wreath out of the same twine and attached it at the top. I stamped the sentiment from the RC Fall Foliage set (I only used part of the sentiment) in Acorn ink and then adhered the wreath using foam dimensionals. I guess my card would fall into a clean and layered category for the Card Concept. I pulled different colors from the inspiration photo.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
