Another Leaf Card

Here is another card using my leaf stamp. This stamp seems to be my favourite at the moment. I have used it on a few different cards, particularly those with an autumn/fall theme, even thought here in New Zealand it is the beginning of spring!

Single Leaf Card

I stamped the Hero Arts Old French Writing stamp in chocolate impress ink onto the cream card.

I stamped two small leaf stamps in Versamark onto nutmeg card for a background effect and mounted this onto the mulled wine card.
The larger leaf stamp was stamped onto white card that I had coloured with distress inks. I stamped walnut stain and wild honey onto an acrylic block, spritzed it and then stamped onto the white card and left to dry. Once dry, I stamped the leaf stamp, cut out it out and I added glossy accents once it was mounted on the card with mounting tape.

For the sentiment, I used a Spellbinders circle and a scalloped circle with Birthday Wishes stamped in chocolate impress ink.

Stamps used:
Hero Arts Old French Writing
Large leaf stamp - Stamp Oasis
Small leaf stamps – sorry no idea of the brand
Sentiment - Hot of the Press - Tiny words & images (HOTP 1020)
Cardstock – cream, mulled wine, nutmeg
