Ombre Vintage Leaves

Today I want to show you one of the projects I made this weekend whilst playing with some new products.  I was inspired by this week's challenge over at the Friday Mash-up, which was to use an ombre effect and/or an embellishment cluster.

I did both!  Check it out:

Thank you card featuring the Vintage Leaves stamp set with sentiment from Happy Notes.
I SO love the leaf images in the Vintage Leaves set!  So detailed and intricate!  I can't wait to make fabulous Fall projects this year!  To achieve this look, I began with an Early Espresso card base and adhered 1-1/4" x 4" strips of (from bottom to top): Delightful Dijon, Hello Honey, Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight.  Then I stamped the leaf images randomly using Early Espresso ink.  So easy and so cool!

To create my embellishment cluster I first stamped the sentiment label from the Happy Notes stamp set on Very Vanilla card stock using Early Espresso ink.  I die cut it using the Lots of Labels Framelits (which can be purchased in a bundle with the Happy Notes set for 15% off!).  I stamped three leaf images on three different shades of yellow card stock and die cut them using the Leaflets Framits (also available in a 15% off bundle!).  I adhered them to the back of the sentiment label and added a bit of Burlap trim.  The finishing touch was some new gold metallic thread...oh, how I love this stuff!  It takes some patience to get it to cooperate, but it is so worth the effort!

On the inside I adhered a piece of Very Vanilla card stock on which I had stamped more leaves in Early Espresso ink.

This ombre look is so easy to achieve...just choose different shades of the same colour and you're good to go!  So many more ideas floating around in this little brain of mine...and so little time to stamp!
