The Fall colors are pure joy to craft and create with.
These leaves are die cuts using Sizzix Thinlit Die set, Leaf Fragments, by Tim Holtz.
I started with a scrapbook paper that was mostly yellow for the orange leaves and a green for the green leaves. I used the dipping method to add more color to the paper using stamp pads and spritzing with water.
After cutting the leaves, I embossed them to give them veins. I then used Distress Crayons to give them more color and depth.
I then used the leaves to make cards.
With two different sets of leaf dies I made the following card.
For this last card I used Distress Mica Stains on black cardstock. The Mica Stains create a shiny or glittery appearance. What fun they are to create with! They are a limited supply item. It is my hope that someday they will be reproduced as a regularly available item.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING to everyone!
And to catch up with my calendar journal....
