Beautiful Vintage Leaves and Clear Embossed Hello You Die Cuts

Something very different from me today !

I must confess that I have had the beautiful stamp set Vintage Leaves sitting collecting dust on my shelf, which made me feel very guilty.

Autumn is here so I thought it very appropriate to give the set an outing.

I have to say I am really thrilled with how this card turned out.   It has a contemporary feel which is what I was trying hard to achieve.  I used a 5.5 inch Whisper White card base and added further layers of Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White.

I chose one specific leaf from the set and randomly stamped in shades of Tempting Turquoise and Bermuda Bay along the bottom half of the card.

I decided to die cut the word "Happy" from my Hello You Thinlits Dies in Tempting Turquoise cardstock. Then I covered it in Tempting Turquoise co-ordinating ink.   This made the shade ever so slightly darker as I was after a bit of a contrast in colour between the word and the card stock.  When it was dry I covered it in clear Versamark, added clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool to achieve a nice bold shiny sentiment.  It was applied to my card and then I sourced the word Birthday from my Crazy About You stamp set.

Hope you like it as much as I do.  Its a technique I shall be using again.

As always, thank you for taking the time to stop by today.

Have a great day.

Bye for now.
