Embossing Paste Fall Leaf Cards

 

As we are officially heading into Fall now, I thought I'd share these Seasonal Layers fall leaf cards that I made many months ago, but saved for the fall.  These cards feature Stampin' Up! embossing paste colored with reinkers, and die cut with the Seasonal Layers leaf thinlit dies on my Big Shot.

I die cut my own mask with a Window Sheet, Seasonal Layers leaves and the Big Shot.

I used that mask to create beautiful embossing paste leaves in fall colors!

The colors of Stampin' UP! reinkers I used with the embossing paste are:  Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Old Olive.
 

The Brick Backgrounds were created with embossing paste and the Pattern Party Decorative masks.

After I created the leaves on the pieces of Color Theory paper, I decided to die cut them and use some of them on these cards.

The Crisp and Cool circle was punched out of one of the Color Theory Memories & More cards, found on page 193 in the Stampin' Up! catalog.  I used the Starburst punch, then added some 1/4" copper trim behind it.

A great card for GUYS & Burlap stamp tip!

 

Need a fun card for a special man in your life?  The Pocketful of Sunshine bundle is perfect for making that special card for hubby, son, boyfriend, nephew, dad, coworker, etc.!! 

I combined the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set/framelit bundle and the Burlap background stamp to create this Father's Day card, but you can switch up the greeting to create this for any occasion!

 

Great Guy Card featuring Pocketful of Sunshine stamp and framelit bundle from Stampin' Up!, and Burlap background stamp, by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

I stamped the Burlap Background stamp in Dapper Denim ink on Dapper Denim cardstock for the background of this card, and without reinking, I stamped it a 2nd time onto another piece of Dapper Denim cardstock, and used that piece for the pocket.  I stamped the pocket image in Archival Black ink, die cut it and added it to the card.

 My personal preference is the wood background stamps, so I bought the wood mount Burlap stamp, but it's also available in clear mount and you can use your own Clear Block F #118483, pg 217.

 

Great Guy Card featuring Pocketful of Sunshine stamp and framelit bundle from Stampin' Up!, and Burlap background stamp, by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

For the little "tag" at the side of the pocket like Levi's jeans, I used one of the fun new Corrugated Elements pieces (#144158, pg 31 and 196).  I also added gold "studs" to the pocket, using the Metallic Enamel Shapes (#141678, pg 196).

Greeting Card Ideas featuring Memories & More cards

 

Have you noticed the Memories & More section in the new 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! catalog?

You'll find these new products on pgs 190 through 193 or HERE online. The Memories & More product line is perfect for card making, memory keeping, 3-D projects, mini albums, and so many more DIY crafting projects!

Today I'm sharing 2 card projects I created using both the Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack (pg 193, #144210, $10.00), combined with the Seasonal Layers thinlits dies (pg 216, #143751, $33.00).

 

Memories & More Stampin' Up! card pack cherry blossom card with adirondack chair from Seasonal Layers thinlit set, by Patty Bennett

 

Just by adding a few simple die cut images from the Seasonal Layers thinlit set to the pre-printed Memories & More card above, you can see that I created a lovely 3-D effect with the flowers and added interest and a pop of dramatic color with the die cut adirondack chair!

 I layered the printed Color Theory Memories & More card onto a folded Crushed Curry card base, and then die cut the 2 flowers and the chair using the Seasonal Layers thinlits.  I added glitter dots to the flower centers for added dimension and pizzazz.
