Vintage Leaves

Vintage Leaves is a gorgeous Stamp Set that I am so pleased is carrying through to the next catalogue.  I find it particularly useful for backgrounds and the two cards I share today demonstrate this. 

I have also seen some amazing watercoloured leaves that have been die cut out using the matching Leaflets Framelits.  They look almost real and are perfect for an Autumn card (Fall for those in the US). 

The background was created using one of the stamps in the set and stamped with Dapper Denim, Marina Mist and Crumb Cake inks.  Variously placed they make a gorgeous background.  The sentiment is from the One Big Meaning Stamp Set and the background leaf has been stamped off (onto scrap paper first) to give it the faded texture look.  The Thank You is stamped in Chocolate Chip Ink.  The Stitched Circle is a sneak peak and will be available in the new 2017 - 2018 Annual Catalogue launching on June 1st 2017.  It was available for a short time as a pre-release late last year.  The Stitched Framelits contain a selection of Circles, Ovals and Squares and are sensational.  I have used them a whole bunch already - they just add that last hurrah to the project. 

The background is matted onto a small piece of Dapper Denim and bordered with a strip of Crumb Cake Washi Tape.  The circle sentiment raised with Dimensionals and this card is perfect for both male and female. 

This second card used a few more stamp sets and also one on the retirement list.  I chose some Autumn colours in Cajun Craze, Delightful Dijon and Early Espresso to create this card.

Again, creating the background using different leaves from the Vintage Leaves Stamp set.  The smaller leaves used as a filler are actually from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp Set.  The cute little acorn and the Sentiment are from the Acorny Thankyou Stamp Set (Retiring) and punched out with the Acorn Builder Punch (also retiring).  The banner is created using the Triple Banner Punch.  A little bit of twine and a leaf cut out from a scrap piece of Pear Pizzazz and this card was finished.
