More Fall Leaves….at The Cheerful Stamp Pad

This is the second week of Challenge #97 Fall Leaves at the Cheerful Stamp Pad there isn’t a sponsor but the prize is a Guest Design Team position for at least two weeks. It is a good way to try out being on a design team if you are wondering how it would be.  Since there isn’t a sponsor I had to come up with my own Fall Leaves after a couple of ideas failed this is what I ended up with……


The stamp set I used is a cling mount from Stampin’up called Gently Falling, it is a two part set, I don’t seem very good at lining up the second step, then again I should use a stamp a ma jig. I embossed the one layer with the pumpkin cuttlebug folder, I used Tim Holtz distress markers on the stamps in several colours, stamped on white then the lined stamps I used versafine moss green. Wasn’t very happy with all the white showing and tried to add more colour, before I scrapped the leaves I tried water and an aquapen to muddle the colours, thought it worked not bad, I had the most beautiful bow to put on it but it was way too thick to mail so made a button with a sizzix button die and covered it with paper glaze (that is another story) put the green and white baker’s twine through all 4 holes and  tied a nice bow.


Close up of the detail on the leaves, oh yes I fussy cut them out too. The inside is not finished yet, I think I might make it into a thank-you card.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you join us in the Fall Leaves challenge.
