Simon Says Stamp – Real Leaves

Hello Friends!

I was on the Simon Says Stamp Blog yesterday sharing some multicolored stamping using the Real Leaves stamp set from the Handmade Holiday release!  I love me some stamping and the ability to add colors and depth using a combination of ink colors.

I created a slimline card today to share a few color variations and to show off the realism and details of these gorgeous Real Leaves!  I started with a slimline panel and centered the oak leaf first and then worked my way out from the center to ensure proper spacing.

Be sure to check out the video for this card!

I used sponge daubers to apply the ink in sections, overlapping them just a tad to get a nice blend between the colors.  When I was done stamping all the variations (2-3 colors per leaf), I quickly splattered the panels with some red ink and white paint for texture.

Simon Says Stamp Dye Ink colors used:  Merlot, Schoolhouse Red, Clementine, Goldenlocks, Fern, Evergreen

For more interest, I wrapped some twine around the bottom of my card to help ground the left images.  I used the Thankful For You die and layered it over the twine in the center of the card.  I die cut the bottom layer using Matte Gold Cardstock and the thankful word using a simple black cardstock.

To finish today’s card, I embellished the leaves with a few sequins from the new Glimmering Pines Sequin Mix.   I hope you like it!  Thanks so much for visiting and spending some time with me today!
