Creating With Kindness Embossing with a Twist – Love of Leaves. Welcome to the October Creating With Kindness Blog Hop, if you are following along, you will probably have come here from the amazing Lou Kitzelman in Australia. This month our theme is Embossing with a Twist.
As Autumn is now officially here in the UK, we are beginning to see the leaves on trees round us turning to whose amazing golden colours. Sometimes this time of year can be amazing, especially if the weather is kind. Seeing the sun catch all those wonderful colours, especially if there has been a mist in the morning, so the leaves shimmer. Today’s card is inspired by those misty and sunny days.
I spotted a card similar to this on Pinterest. It was one of those cards you see just as you log in on your phone and before you can save it Pinterest has loaded some more. There is not much I hate about Pinterest, but that is one of them.
I have used the Love of Leaves Bundle for today’s card. The die cutting took a little bit of working out, but once I got my head around it, it was pretty simple to do. I love that there are dies that do the embossing at the same time as the die cutting (if you want that). To get the effect of the mist in the sunshine, I spritzed the leaves with some Frost White Shimmer Paint in Rubbing Alcohol. The Stampin’ Up! Spritzers are such a great little tool and I think people miss them in the catalogue.
The finishing touch for this card are the Gilded Gems. I keep forgetting to look at the Annual Catalogue for things like Embellishments, but every now and again I remember and then find something that I then end up using for a few projects. Just to say, you may see these may make an appearance again soon!
