Vintage Birthday Leaves

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend.  It was stamp-a-palooza here!  I spent all day Saturday in my studio designing Christmas cards for my events this Fall.  So much fun playing with new Holiday Catalogue goodies!  Speaking of which, tomorrow is THE day! The 2015 Holiday Catalogue goes live tomorrow morning, so get your Wish List ready :)

Today I have a project that uses products from the Annual and the Holiday catalgoues...

Fall-themed Birthday card featuring the Vintage Leaves and Tag Talk stamp sets
I'm kind of on a gold kick lately.  Many of the cards I designed on the weekend feature touches of gold and this one is no exception.  Good thing it's trendy right now!  On this one I stamped the leaves from the Vintage Leaves stamp set in the new Basic Black Archival ink and then die cut them using the Leaflets Framelits. The I took my Versamark pad directly to the leaves, applying it sparingly to the edges.  I sprinkled on some gold embossing powder and heated.  I love the result...

The striped gold foil DSP I used is from the Winter Wonderland pack in the Holiday catty.  I SO love that paper!!  The Whisper White background panel is embossed using the new Softly Falling TIEF.  The sentiment label is from the Tag Talk stamp set and is punched with the coordinating Bracket Label punch.  I layerd the punched label on a 1-3/4" gold foil circle, which is then layered on a 2" Basic Black circle.  The only embellishment I added was a little bow of gold Cording Trim.

On the inside I simply stamped more leaves, leaving plenty of space for happy birthday wishes.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow.  I'll be showcasing more Holiday Catalogue products AND have a new technique video to share with you!

In the meantime, here are the products I used to create this project:

    1. Thanks so much :) I was surprised how much I like those leaves in black and white. I always think fall colour when I see leaf images, but the black and white with gold really work :)
