Intricate Leaves Dies

Hello again my friends,

I have been playing with the Gorgeous Leaves Bundle (#158609) again so this is my latest card.




The detailed dies from the Intricate Leaves Dies (#153566) and Basic White card (#159228) which was backed with an Adhesive Sheet (#152334), were used to cut the leaves for the background. I adhered these to the card front and the edges were daubered with Pumpkin Pie ink (#147086) and attached to the Basic White base card.

The sentiment from Very Versailles stamp set (#149275) was stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink and cut with a Tasteful Labels die (#152886). Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach this to the card.

The leaves from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set (#153365) were stamped with Crushed Curry ink (#147087), Old Olive ink (#147090) and Cajun Craze ink (#147085). These were also cut with the Intricate leaves Dies.

The bird is from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set (#156342) and stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink, then fussy cut. The branch was cut from Gold Foil (#132622) backed with Adhesive Sheet, with an Intricate Leaves Die and attached to the card. The bird was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Clear Wink Of Stella (#141897) was used on the bird and the stamped leaves.

Slimline card

Hello my friends,

I have made a slimline card using the Dragonfly Garden Bundle (#156224). I cut the base card 21cm x 21cm and scored at 10.5cm







I stamped the floral image and dragonfly from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set (#154411) with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708) on Basic White card (#159228). I coloured the flowers & leaves with Real Red Stampin’ Blends (#154899), Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends (#154885) and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends (#154883).

The dragonfly was punched with the Dragonfly Punch (#154240) and I added some glimmer to it using the Clear Wink Of Stella Brush (#141897).

“Happy Birthday” from the (retired) Many Mates stamp set was stamped with Real Red ink (#147084) and cut with the Messages die (#154422).

I matted the floral image with Real Red card (#106578), then this was attached to the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper (#155426). I wrapped the Metallic Mesh Ribbon (#153550) around the card front, then attached this to the Basic White base card. 

The dragonfly & sentiment were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and the Silver embellishments are from the Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials (#155567).

Gorgeous Leaves stamp set

Hi everyone,

These leaves are from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set (#153365) and stamped using the “hinged method” with the Stamparatus (#148187).




I stamped the leaves with Crushed Curry ink (#147087), then inked the edges of the leaves with different inks using a dauber and re-stamped. From left to right the inks used were Cajun Craze (#147085), Soft Suede (#119982), Cherry Cobbler (#147083), Pumpkin Pie (#147086) and Old Olive (#147090). I did one leaf at a time before moving the plate one “hinge” each time.

The Crushed Curry card (#131288) was dry embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder (#156505) and attached to the Very Vanilla card front (#106550). I also attached a small strip of the Gold from the Gold & Rose Gold 6”x6” Metallic Specialty Paper (#156844) to the card front.

The sentiment is from the Biggest Wish stamp set (#155052). “Birthday” was stamped with Crushed Curry ink and “happy” with Cherry Cobbler ink. This was then cut with a Stitched Rectangles Die (#151820) and attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

Gorgeous Leaves Bundle

Hello & welcome,

The Gorgeous Leaves Bundle (#158609) consists of the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set (#153365) and the Intricate Leaves Dies (#153566).




I cut the 3 detailed leaves from Mossy Meadow card (#133683), Merry Merlot card (#147005) and Early Espresso card (#121686). All these were backed with Adhesive Sheets (#152334) before cutting with the Intricate Leaves dies.

The other leaves were stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and heat embossed. For the 2 small leaves I used Gold Emboss Powder and for the larger leaf on the right I used Copper Emboss Powder. For the other 2 leaves I mixed the Gold, Copper and Silver Emboss Powders together and was happy with the results. These Gold, Silver & Copper powders are all included in the Metallics pack (#155555). After setting these leaves with the Heat Tool (#129056) they were cut with the Intricate Leaves Dies.

“Happy Birthday” is from the Artistically Inked stamp set (#154542), stamped with Merry Merlot ink (#147112) and cut with the Messages Die (#154422).

The base card is Very Vanilla (#106550). The 2 pieces of DSP are from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (#152494) and Merry Merlot card was used to matt the smaller piece.

The stamped leaves were taped to the card except one small gold leaf which was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The sentiment was also attached with Dimensionals.
