Hi! I’m here with a card inspired by several fun Fall Challenges.
I created the plaid leaf by first sponging an ombre background (red to yellow from the stem to the leaf tip). Then I repeatedly masked off portions of the leaf and sponged on ink. I love using this technique.
I used a “Thankful” die from CUTplorations.
I sponged on a red band and attached the white panel to the orange cardstock.
I attached the leaf and the die cut with foam tape.
I really like this card. A plaid leaf!? Sponging, ink blending, lots of red (my favorite color to use when making cards), ombre Autumn colors? I don’t normally make the same card twice, but I may have to repeat this one. 🙂
Hello & welcome. I have 4 leaf print cards to share with you today.I have been enjoying using REAL LEAVES to stamp with recently. There is so much beauty in creation and I find it fun & challenging to try and capture a little bit of it on paper.
So, yesterday I inked up some leaves from my yard with some Craft/white ink and/or with red & yellow re-inkers and 3 different Stickles colors (which added some texture to this first card) and then stamped with them. I’m very happy with how these cards turned out.
I made a birthday card for my husband. His birthday is on the 28th. Here it is:
I inked up a leaf from my yard with some Craft/white ink along with red & yellow re-inker inks and 3 different Stickles colors and then stamped with it. I used Happy Little Stampers’ Everyday Sentiments on this card too. I’m very happy with how this turned out. I’m also going to play this at Word Art Wednesday’s Challenge #210: Anything Goes. I stamped a bunch of different leaves today, but I’ve put those away for another time. I have an unexpected date to go on!
My husband is coming home early so we can go out for a walk. We have not had any alone time for a long while, so I’ll hide this card and go get my sneakers on. After the month we’ve had it’s going to be good to hold his hand and walk in the woods. Well, that’s it for me for now.
Thanks for stopping by!
Updated Wednesday Nov 18: I made some more leaf cards today. You can see them over here:
