Happy Everything Leaves

For this leafy designs I ink blended Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with Distress Oxide Inks. Thoroughly dried the ink with my heat gun and then stamped the leaves from Gina K. Designs Stitched Leaves with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder.

For the background panel I used the Sizzix 3D Lumber Texture Embossing Folder. Added a message bundles of gold thread and placed the leaves, pine cone, and acorn on top. The sentiment is from Penny Black and for dimension and to add to the fall theme I used red peel and stick foam.

Birthday Leaves with Birch Trees

I saw this embossing folder by Stampin’ Up called Woodland, which makes a beautiful background for leaves and other nature based cards. I stamped the Gina K. Designs Stitched Leaves first in Ink On 3 Fade Out Ink using my MISTI. I then colored them with Copic Markers and then restamped them with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder. I didn’t have a large acorn stamp, so I found a digital image and used my VersaMark Pen to add the gold embossing powder. Really like the looks of this fall based birthday card.
