SU Lighthearted Leaves

SU Vintage Leaves with Lighthearted Leaves

August 28, 2015

Hello long lost friends…I am still here…busy, busy, busy but I do have a fall card to post today! I have been playing around with some sponging techniques and had a piece leftover that fit wonderfully into the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #201 this week.

FMS Final 201-001

I used the SU Vintage Leaves along with a sentiment from the new SU Lighthearted Leaves stamp set. I forgot how gold can just add that special touch to a card. I also added a some Crystal Effects to the  outline and the veining on the leaves to add a little something.
Definitely a difficult card to photograph to capture the embossing but I think it shows up.

Why don’t I wet emboss more often? It looks so cool. I still get all giddy when I see the powder change before my eyes! Do you emboss a lot or tend to forget like me?

Just a super quick card with another sneak peek of a new SU stamp set called Lighthearted Leaves coming out in the Holiday Catalog on September 1st. Garden Green, Crushed Curry, and Cajun Craze worked together nicely to celebrate the colors of the autumn season.

The  SU Vintage Leaves stamp set (above) found in the Annual catalog stamps a natural realistic image of leaves while this new SU Lighthearted Leaves set (below)  is whimsical and folksy.

It has a lovely Thanksgiving sentiment, a verse by Emily Bronte,
So Grateful for You, and the word BELIEVE.
