Today we want to share some projects with you using the Leaves stamp set!
This set has been on my 'wish-list' for a very long time, but for various reasons we weren't able to release it until now. I'd been collecting leaves from my garden and our neighbourhood to create this stamp set, so there's lots of different varieties in there! I've also made little versions of some of them too - great for inchies, tags and ATC's!
Godelieve is our main feature artist today, she has created fabulous projects with this stamp set!
Details from Godelieve:
All stamping was done with Archival Ink #Coffee. I colored the Tree Line image with Distress Ink and pencils. The bird is from the Love Birds set.
Background is sponged with Distress Ink, I added more color to the leaves with pencils.
Twine, mini staples and a sentiment from the Simply Circles set are the finishing touches.
Isn't it fantastic! Godelieve has created two cards using similar colouring techniques. Here's the first one:
Details from Godelieve:
Double stamping of the leaves, over stamped with Background stamps Criss Cross and Weathered Stripes using Distress Inks.
The quotes are from Wilderness Vol 1 and Full Bloom Vol 2, stamped with Archival Ink #Coffee.
Here's the second one:
It's autumn right now here in the southern hemisphere, so these leaves are falling everywhere right now! Beautiful colours!!
Godelieve's also created a gift tag:
Isn't that clever!! Here's some info from Godelieve:
A stamped leaf, cut out, used as a gift label to attach to a wine bottle.
Celebrate from the All Occasions set was stamped with Archival Ink #Coffee.
What a great idea!
I've also had fun with this set... here's a card I created by embossing the leaves then going over the top with Distress Stains.
The sentiment is from the Simply Circles stamp set, adhered with foam adhesive.
So there you go - a few idea on how to use the Leaves in your cards and other projects!!
