Colorful Seasons & Heat Embossed Acetate

Its a clean and simple card from me today.

I love the Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Bundle of stamps and dies - and being a huge fan of Jennifer McGuire, I came across a technique she used that I just had to try.  So thank you Jennifer McGuire for being a constant source of inspiration to me.

You do need heat resistant acetate sheets for this.  I purchased mine from Crafters Companion, but I am sure there are many other brands who carry heat resistant acetate out there.

First I die cut the leaf on the top layer.   I then cut a piece of acetate and a piece of Whisper White card stock to the same size.

I placed the plain layer of Whisper White in my MISTI (you will definitely need a stamp positioner of some kind for this technique).   Then I placed the die cut layer over the top.  I placed the large plain leaf from the stamp set over the die cut area and picked it up with the MISTI.

I then removed the die cut layer and stamped the leaf in So Saffron onto the bottom layer of card.  I used my daubers to rub in some Pear Pizzazz and Calypso Coral around the edges of the leaf stamp and stamped several times, building up some colours around the edges and removed from the MISTI when I was happy with the image.

Next, I placed the layer of acetate in my MISTI and again lay the die cut layer over the top.  I placed the more detailed of the large leaf stamps over the die cut area and picked it up with my MISTI.  I removed the die cut layer and stamped the detailed leaf in clear Versamark onto the acetate.

I then applied Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set the detailed gold leaf.

Then it was simply a case of assembling the layers and adding the sentiment which was also heat embossed in Gold.

It love the clean look of the card.  It's a case of less definitely being more for me.

Hope you like it.

  1. Stunning beautiful, simple but elegant love and huggles xx

  2. The card may be simple, but the colours of the leaf are spectacular. I can see the tops of the trees from my bedroom window and the leaves are just at that stage of changing. You have represented the Autumnal colours exactly!

  3. Beautiful card Linda, (I watched Jennifer's video when it came out... I really enjoyed it!!) I'm now wondering which die set I can use now to recreate this card... you've inspired me!! Lol x
