This is all Angies fault. She sent me the most gorgeous birthday card and I wanted to CASE it. The starting point was creating the die cut on the Silhouette. I layered 3 of the same maple leaf that I have a stamp for and welded them together then added the sentiment. Once cut on white cs twice I clear heat embossed the stamp and then water colored the leaves and letters. The leaves got attached to the white cs base and the letters got put in the holes where the white letters had been on the top layer. Used a copic to add in the dots.
Challenge was to use a stencil on patterned paper. I used glitter paste in black and love how this turned out. The sentiment strip was cut on Silhouette, each letter removed and heat embossed in black then placed back in and the tag attached.
What a combination of things to get on this one. Then I even added kraft cs for layer that has been dry embossed. Leaf is sticker paper cut with Silhouette then gilding flakes are rubbed on sticky side and then glued on card. Sentiment and die frame were also cut on Silhouette. Tag is die cut and twine is from stash.
Global Design Project had a color challenge with some interesting colors. The blue and green made me happy but the red had me stumped. I had made the background with color burst in the two colors and smooching. Earlier I had been playing on the Silhouette with some new fonts for sentiments and had cut this one out. Once I heat embossed it three times in red it made the this cad come together.
I had made this scene for an other challenge that wanted orange and white. I thought I was finished and ready to post till I read the actual challenge and it was orange & white ONLY. So when I saw a stamp buddy enter Mod Squad with her gorgeous butterfly cut from a rose petal, the idea came that I could get some dried leaves to add to my fall scene. The tree that the twig and leaves are from is called Honey Locust and is in my front yard.
