Leaf Silhouettes- Wishing You a Season of Blessings

Hi Friends!  

I had a chance to relax and stamp a card this past weekend and decided to create a Clean and Layered (CAL) card with Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Leaf Silhouettes Clear Stamp Set (also available as a stamp/die bundle).

I pulled out some of my long neglected colored embossing powders for this fun Mixed Media card and incorporated the Freshly Made Sketches #263 Sketch Challenge as well as the TGIF! Challenges#82 Inspiration Challenge and the Splitcoaststampers’ Clean and Simple CAS403 “x3”Challenge.

Also, in addition to checking out the above challenge sites, if you have not stopped by the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps blog or FB page yet, I hope you will take the time to do so- fabulous inspiration from the SNSS Creative Team as well as daily and weekly specials in celebration of SNSS 9th Birthday!   

To create this card:

Heat emboss the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps (SNSS) Leaf Silhouettes Clear Stamp Set images with espresso, orange, red and curry embossing powders and once cooled, carefully cut out the leaves and set aside.  FYI- there is a SNSS Leaf Silhouettes Stamp/Die Bundle available if you prefer to die cut :-) 

Using a stencil brush with a chevron stencil, apply a light coating of tangerine ink to a piece of white cardstock, trim the panel and heat emboss the sentiment from the (SNSS) Leaf Silhouettes Clear Stamp Set with espresso embossing powder.

Add the hemp twine in the center and mount the panel onto the espresso card front with dimensional foam, trim if necessary and mount onto the white card base.

Adhere the leaves per the sketch and add the hemp twin bow along with a few sequins to finish off this card. 

Thanks again for stopping by to visit-hugs and I hope you have a great week!
