Today Gina K. Designs is sharing samples made with Melanie’s new set A Year of Leaves. I have stamped one sheet of cardstock that I turned into 6 cards for some Fall card giving. Here is the photo of all of them. In addition to the one sheet, I only used 2 sheets of Green Apple cardstock, 1 sheet of pumpkin spice and some scraps of pumpkin spice and chocolate kiss. Embellishments are 14 copper brads & 6 bling & dazzle ivory sateen flowers from the Signs of Autumn stamp tv kit to complete the cards.
Here is the sheet of Ivory layering weight cardstock I stamped randomly with all the leaves in the set in 4 different fall colors. I also used my color spritzer & marker for splatter and sponged on the edges of my main image once I cut all the sheets.
On design #3 I used the remaining stamped layer and trimmed it slightly to 2 1/4” by 4 1/4” an the chocolate layer 2 1/2” x 4 1/4” – one of my ‘go to’ layouts. I left my sentiments off so I can make this any occasion I need. If you have not tried this type of stamping, I encourage you to. You will be amazed at how quickly you can stamp 6 cards to have on hand!
Lastly, I have a few bookmarks I made also using the set. I wanted to send one to Cat along with a book for her to read while she recuperates from being in the hospital during our last release. I couldn’t resist making myself one too! I love the addition of the white accents from a prismacolor pencil. They are just scored & folded pumpkin spice cardstock pieces with basic grey magnetic snaps on the inside to fold over your place in the book.
