TSOT 523 - Two Leaf Cards

Welcome to Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch Challenge 523!

The optional theme this week (in addition to the sketch) is falling leaves.

I decided to combine both the sketch and the theme for both cards. I stayed true to the sketch as well. 

On the first card (slimline), the leaves were stamped and coloured and a top piece was cut using stitched square dies. That all fit together as a shaker with gold sequins and stars plus some iridescent flower confetti as the shaker pieces. The background was inked using several Distress Oxide colours and then I dropped some water on top to soften the appearance. The shaker was adhered to the background and a piece of coral shimmer trim was added underneath. I stamped a sentiment and added it to the front of the card along with some gold sequins. 

For the second card, stitched squares were die cut and I stamped three leaf combinations, one in each. The leaves were coloured and then added to a grey background. The papers are all from the Falling for You paper collection from CTMH. I added some gold embellishing thread and gold glitter gems but kept this card pretty simple.

  1. Your Slimline fall card is so serene, Alyson! I especially love the blended colors. Your second card is lovely as well. The trio of squares is perfect against the patterned paper.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment - it truly makes me smile :)
