Winter Leaves of a Tree

Right now my studio looks like a explosion went off in there!  It is a MESS!  My preorder is still waiting to be unpacked and I hadn't cleaned up after class last week before starting on another project!  I think every square inch is covered on my tables.  That's #1 on my list today (after I finish my MESSY project!)  lol!


I wanted to share one of the cards I did for a recent class.  We used Leaves of a Tree stamp in the Holiday Mini and I did a theme of four seasons.  I wanted to show my customers that stamp was for more than just Fall.  This card was inspired by Eileen LeFever (I think!) for my WINTER season!



I started with Night of Navy as my base card.  I added a strip of Beau Chateau Designer Paper down the right side.  I stamped on First Edition Specialty Paper with Versamark and embossed with White Embossing Powder.  Then I sponged Marina Mist, Night of Navy and Not Quite Navy inks over the First Edition Paper so the embossing popped!  I added a diagonal strip of Whisper White that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder and roughed up the top edge.  I wrapped Night of Navy 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon around and tied on the 1" Circle Tag of Marina Mist, stamped with Petite Pairs greeting.  A little pearl was added at the bottom of the greeting and a trio of them above the stamped image to balance it out.


I'm off to run a couple errands and then start cleaning my messy studio!  Have a great day!
