Hello, It’s the first of November and I am going to tell you that I am in denial, how about you? Do you think if we stomp our feet and do not budge that Christmas won’t come? Me either! Why are things so much harder than they used to be and why are we or should I say me, not anxious about the Holiday Season? Inquiring minds want to know!
Okay, I got a bit sidetracked. Today over at Color Hues, Hannelie is our wonderful hostess and she picked a pretty color pairing that I totally was enamored with.
Here is a close-up of my card. I just love doing this technique with the leaves every year. I love the look of it.
Card Details: The first thing I did was make a stencil using the die that goes with these awesome leaves. Next, I sponged them one at a time in Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers – Oxide Ink. I did this as carefully as I could in hopes to not turn them a shade of green. Then I came back with the matching stamp in black to give them their definition. Finally, I decided to do the inlay technique with the friend die and later bordered it with teal paper. The hi there was added last using a tag die that has been layered 3 times for depth.
Supplies: Retired SU leaves from the Colorful Seasons set. The friend die is from Honey Bee Stamps, and the hi there is from Ellen Hutson and die cut with Pink and Main tags.
Take care, Nanc’
