Colorful Copper Leaves 

Colorful Seasons copper 1

I am so happy that it is finally starting to feel like fall here in Texas!  I wanted to create some cards to celebrate the season!  One of the bundles that I will treasure for a long time is the Colorful Seasons bundle!  It is a must have for a new stamper too! It covers all the seasons and has such beautiful dies to coordinate with the images!  Not to mention the paper, color combos, and accessories to boot!

Part of my monthly stamp club includes a technique.  The members get a sample of the technique and a small blurb that explains how to create it again.  When they first join, they receive a journal to put these in so they have it to look back on for a handy (and pretty) reference!

This card plays up the Emboss Resist technique.  I just switched the embossing powder to Copper!  I then used Sponge Daubers to rub Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Cherry Cobbler.  (in that order)  I started with the middle of the leaf towards the stem.  I only used the Cherry Cobbler on the tips of the leaves.  I then cut them out as well as one Copper Foil leaf.

I just love how the Copper Foil, Copper Embossing Folder, and Copper Thread make this card pop!

Delicate Faux Linen

final-10

This was one of the techniques that came to mind when I first saw the Colorful Seasons bundle!  Faux Linen was one of the very first cards I made over 9 years ago!  I am surprised that it’s taken me this long to do that technique again!  We made this card for our stamp club this month!  Super simple!!

  1. Use a neutral or light color card stock for your base.  I used Soft Sky in this photo.
  2. Take a piece of tissue that you use for gift wrapping.  Stamp desired images on it. Then wad it up one to two times and flatten it out. I chose not to stamp on the tissue here.
  3. Use your Tombo Multi Purpose glue and apply to the whole card base using a sponge piece.  (I store mine in a baggie to keep it moist).
  4. Gently use your fingers to lay your tissue down and smooth out most of the wrinkles.  You want some.  (Elmer’s glue works too, but it tears the tissue easily).
  5. Let dry and attach to your card!

I was able to stamp the sentiment directly on it when it was dry.  I also used the Fine Tip Glue pen to attach the branch.  Then I used Glue Dots to adhere the flowers together.  There is a whole piece and a detailed piece to make 3 different flowers.  cherry blossom

I then used a blender pen with Berry Burst to color the centers.  A pearl added the finishing touch!

Hope you enjoued this card as much as I did making it!  LOVE cherry blossoms!  You can order this and other items at my website! Remember to get your loyalty rewards too!  Any order of $150 or more is eligible for host benefits!
