Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters,, Falling Leaves, Detailed Leaves Thinlits

Falling for Leaves is the best set from the Holiday catalog to celebrate everything fall!   I LOVE fall and the colors that go with it!  I can’t wait for the fall colors to emerge. . . there is just a little tease of those colors starting here in northern Minnesota.  I was excited to pull out the Falling For Leaves bundle for my upcoming card buffet.  The bundle includes the Falling for Leaves stamp set and the Detailed Leaves thinlits dies.  You can purchase the bundle at a 10% savings from purchasing the items separately.

Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters,, Falling Leaves, Detailed Leaves Thinlits

Check out the patina like background created by using the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured embossing folder that has been coated with Coastal Cabana ink.  The ink just adds so much depth and dimension for such a simple technique.  By the way, I tried using Bermuda Bay ink with the Bermuda Bay cardstock but it just seemed too dark.  I like this look a lot better.

The leaf is from the Copper Foil cardstock.  Don’t you love the detailed look of the maple leaf from the Detailed Leaves Thinlits dies?

Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters,, Falling Leaves, Seasonal Wreath

I LOVE sharing ideas where I find more uses for something different than the original intent.  This Seasonal Wreath embossing folder is a perfect example of that.  Here I have embossed the wreath then I used a sponge dauber with one of my favorite returning products – Shimmer Paint!  For the base of the wreath, I used the Vegas Gold color of Shimmer paint.  Then I used a blender pen to apply the Bright Copper Shimmer paint to the twigs interspersed in the ribbon.
