CASology - Leaf

It's time for a new challenge at CASology.  Last week the cue word was "zoo"...I was totally stumped so I didn't get to play along.  This week the cue word is "Leaf"...YAY!!  I can do this!



For your viewing pleasure...this week, I've actually made TWO cards for the challenge!  Here's my first one....


I found this huge leaf die (QK) that I've had forever.  I used a scrap of orange paper and ran it through the paper crimper several times in all directions, then cut it out with the leaf die.  I inked it up a bit, and then adhered it to a panel that was embossed with this wood looking imprint.  The sentiment is from PTI and was stamped on white, layered on a piece of the orange like the leaf and then pop dotted on the embossed panel.  


I LOVE the bright colors I used for these leaves!  I used a very old SU stamp and stamped it several times in black on some white card stock.  Then I colored each of the leaves with Copics....making them very bright.  The leaves were adhered to a white panel that is edged with red strips.  Sentiment is stamped in SU not quite navy and is a PTI stamp.

That's all I have right now...maybe I'll make a few more leaf cards before the week is over...I enjoyed this cue word!  Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments are always appreciated!! Until next time...

Hugs!

I love the grungy effect on the first leaf - looks like a real fallen one.

I know I can count on you for stunning cards, Susan! So cool how you made a "granddaddy-been-around-the-tree-a-few-times" leaf for the first card and some out-of-this-world leaves for the second card. Keep 'em coming!

Both are beautiful - although I'm always partial to a good Canadian Maple leaf! lol! Thanks so much for playing along with CASology this week!
