Fall Leaves

Good morning friends! Happy Tuesday to you! I'm excited to share some fun new products with you today! I think you know how I love nestabilites? Well, today I'm going to show a couple of cards that I made with my new Leaves Nestabilites! They are a bundle of fun!

This first card was a very simple quick card. I cut the leaves out of Chocolate Chip, Really Rust and Very Vanilla cardstock with my nestabilities and my Spellbinders Wizard. Next I ran the leaves through my Big Shot with my Swiss Dots Embossing folder. I mounted the leaves on my Very Vanilla card and then stamped my sentiment. This sweet sentiment is from the October Monthly Mix from Lizzie Anne Designs. I tied a bow with my Chocolate Chip ribbon, then tied a button to it and mounted it on a Really Rust circle and then I mounted it on my card.
This second card is also featuring my new nestabilites...and a few more new products too!! I just a big box from the UPS man today...a new PTI order...YUM-O! I have had a great time working today!
I started my card with a Spring Moss card base. I used some Chocolate Chip paper and my apron lace fiskars border punch to make my lovely chocoalte chip lace. I added some Raspberry Fizz patterned paper over top of the chocolate chip cardstock and then tied it up with some 5/8" chocolate chip ribbon. I used the tequnique found here on the JUGS challenge blog. I made both the flowers and a layered leaf, I'll show you my flower cards tomorrow! To make the leaves, I used my brayer and chocolate chip ink and covered some tissue paper with ink. Then I cut the tissue into squares and layered about 10 layers and cut my leaves out of that...a trip through the Big Shot with Leaf nestabilites. I love the look of the tissue paper leaf!!

Next, I stamped my sentiment which is from the Everyday Button Bits stamp set, with Chocolte Chip ink onto Spring Moss cardstock. I used my large oval punch to punch it out, then layered it on a Chocolate Chip scalloped oval, and then mounted those onto a wide Raspberry Fizz oval. I used some more Raspberry Fizz patterned paper and my smallest leaf nestie to create a perfect little leaf embellishment!

I'm excited to show you the other projects I finished up today, I comepleted some challenges and had a great relaxing day, so be sure to come back tomorrow! Thanks so much for stopping by and make it a great one!!
