Muse Challenge #241 - Leafy Thank You

Good afternoon

It's the first Monday of the month and therefore, once again it's my turn to be your designer over at Muse.

The idea at Muse is to take inspiration from any element(s) of the designer's card, i.e. colours, layout, theme, technique, etc.  And what makes Muse pretty unique is that the winners each week are voted for by your fellow participants, and as part of the rules we ask that you visit at least three other entrants to show some support.

For my design this week I've chosen to make another card appropriate for the season, certainly here in the UK the trees are become bare and the ground is covered with colourful leaves.  And hopefully the different elements will inspire you to play along...

I used an embossing folder to emboss the leaf pattern on a panel of white cardstock and adhered this to a green card base.  I then die cut a stitched sentiment strip from the same green cardstock and embossed the sentiment in white which I adhered to the centre.  Using my MISTI, I then inked up the leaves, overstamping multiple times to achieve the blend of autumnal colours.  This was then die cut with the co-ordinating die and popped up on 3D foam squares.

Materials used:
  • Embossing folder: Darice  - Leaves Assorted Pattern
  • Dies: MFT Die-namics - Stitched Sentiment Strips, Clearly Besotted - Little Things
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Sweet Little Sentiments, Little Things
  • Ink: VersaMark; Altenew - Mocha, Moss, Autumn Blaze, Grapevine
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Opaque Bright White
