All Things Leaves

An Abundance of Thankfulness 

While this collection of cards came from a creative time last fall, it is the right season to share.

I probably do not fall into a new crafter category, it has only been a few years since I got the papercrafting bug and I am constantly learning something new.

I can thank Jennifer McGuire for this Perfect Pearl Technique

The base is Stampin' Up! Thick Whisper White Cardstock (140272) and layered with Old Olive (100702) and Whisper White Cardstocks (100730)

The White Embossed (109132) (102283) sentiment came from a past Paper Pumpkin Kit. 

The following cards are die cuts from a couple of similar panels that created the previous two cards.

A retired bundle was also used above and to cut out the images below.

A simple rock-n-roll technique created the colorful leaves from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set (146482) using an assortment of Classic Stampin' Pads: Black Berry Bliss (147092)Cajun Craze (147085)Crushed Curry (147087), and Night of Navy (147110). I love this color combo!

The top layers of cardstock are in a Black Berry Bliss Cardstock (133675) and Crumb Cake (120953). The Corrugated Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder (148026) was also used in a couple of the samples. 

To accompany the metallic look of the Perfect Pearls, Copper and Gold Foil Sheets (142020) (132622) offered a coordinating accent to the sentiment. 

The same color combinations with the addition of the Handwritten Background Stamp (146524) highlight the focal images below.

Again, Old Olive Classic Pad (147090) and Cardstock (120953), Crumb Cake Classic Pad (147116) and Cardstock (120953), Blackberry Bliss Classic Pad (147092) and Cardstock (133675), and a small debut of Pumpkin Pie Cardstock (105117) were combined in the cards above and below. 

The sentiments come from the retired Chase Your Dreams Framelits (146826).
