Happy STAMPtember, crafty friends!!
I think I am gonna be talking about “Happy STAMPtember” all month, haha! :D
Today I want to share with you a couple of my leafy “Thinking of You” cards using the Eucalyptus Leaves dies along with other STAMPtember products.
For my first card, I used the Eucalyptus Leaves dies and the Tumbling Leaves stencil.
I die cut several Eucalyptus Leaves from watercolour paper first, and then inked on them using green coloured dye inks & Picket Fence Studios blender brush. I used (light to dark) SSS Green Apple, Green Leaf and Evergreen dye inks.
For the background panel, I die cut Wonky Rectangle Panel from Cream card stock first, and then made leafy background using the Tumbling Leaves stencil. For the sentiment, I used the Sending Sympathy stamp set.
For the shadow effect, I cut the centre of the panel using the Eucalyptus Leaves die. I tied all eucalyptus leaves up with natural twine.
Waterdrops on eucalyptus leaves, I used Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops. :)
For my second card, I used the Thinking of You Heart die along with the Eucalyptus Leaves dies.
I die cut several eucalyptus leaves from watercolour paper first, and then also Wonky Rectangle Panel from watercolour paper. I then adhered eucalyptus leaves die cuts on the wonky rectangle panel using ZIG fine tip glue pen. Next, I ink blended on the leafy background panel with some Distress inks: Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn, Evergreen Bough, Tea Dye and Rusty Hinge.
After ink blending, I added fresh water all over the inked panel using a wet paint brush – it looks like watercoloured panel.
For the sentiment, I die cut the Thinking of You Heart from white card stock, heart shaped shadow from vellum paper, then glued them together using fine tip glue pen. The dot above ‘i’, I used clear jewel instead of paper.
I decorated the sentiment panel with lightly watercoloured eucalyptus leaves.
