FALL LEAVES



Posted by Picasa
What Inspires You?    Take a Look around You...I found inspiration in the leaves in my yard on this beautiful Japanese Maple.
Look at the range of colors filtering through the sunlight.

To make this card start with your leaves.

I cut several leaves with my BIG SHOT sizzix  die cutting machine and the sizzix originals die cut LEAVES #2   #113459.
I used card stock colors  Rich Razzleberry  #115316 More Mustard  #100946 , Always Artichoke  #105119Dusty Durango  #115321  and Pumpkin Pie  # 105117  .

To make the leaves have a realistic look....

1. Start with a dense foam pad (paper piercing pad)....I used the one in my 
     MAT PACK # 105826
2. Place your leaves right side down on the mat.
3. I  used my BONE FOLDER # 102300 to create leaf veins.
4. Using your bone folder tip, crease or draw lines/veins in the leafs. 
          TIP:Use a real leaf to see where veins actually start and finish
5. Turn your leaves over.
6. Time to sponge the Rich Razzleberry Ink pad # 115658 on leaf edges 
     and across your veins.
7. Finally, give your leaves an added touch of richness by sponging on some 
    GOLD METALLIC ENCORE ink pad # 101017 on the leaf edges.

Create your card base using card stock AlwaysArtichoke  #105119 
Make your next layer using the TOP NOTE # 113463 die cut and LAVENDER LACE # 101614 card stock
The stitching on your TOP NOTE Layer magically appears when you sponge Rich Razzleberry Ink pad # 115658 on the edges.

Arrange your leaves behind and in front of your top note layer.
Before adhering to your base, wrap the solid side of RICH RAZZLEBERRY  GROSGRAIN RIBBON # 115613 around your top note layer.
