Wednesday, November 21, 2012



     I got the idea for this card from Paper Crafts Magazine, November/December 2012 issue.  The tutorial used a different company's stamps, but I knew Stampin' Up!'s set, Gently Falling, would be perfect, and it is!


  • Stamp the solid background leaves on a Post-It note or copy paper and cut out.  Do this all the leaves you want on your card.
  • Use temporary adhesive and cover the edges of the backs of your cut out leaves and adhere the leaves where you want them on your card.
  • Using rubbing alcohol (91% works best - dries quicker, but regular rubbing alcohol works fine), re-inkers, and a Stampin' Up! spray bottle, mix up your own color mists.  I used 5 colors on my card.
  • Place the front of your card into an empty box and spray the front of your card with the color misters you made.
  • You can use the Stampin' Up! heat tool, on low, to speed up the drying time.
  • Once dry, remove the paper leaves you had adhered to your card.
  • Using the line art stamps to match the leaves on your card, stamp on the white leaf spots.
So simple, and such a beautiful result!  It's so pretty in person!
