And here is my entry!

Colourful Seasons Masculine Card

The Colourful Seasons stamp set has elements for every season of the year. For Autumn, there are leaf stamps and dies, including this wonderful detailed leaf element. I haven’t really gone with a “colourful” look … instead I have used the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack for all the elements, including the leaves.  This paper stack includes just about every wood texture you could imagine and is great for any masculine project.

Embossed and die cut leaves

The smaller leaves have been clear embossed onto various wood texture patterns and then die cut with the co-ordinating leaf shape. The larger leaf is two die cut elements, a solid shape die cut from a wood texture paper and the intricate die cut over the top is from Early Espresso cardstock. I added a touch of Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush over the background leaf.

And that trim?  It is a new Copper Trim, and is sort of like a mesh. It is very different and the colour and subtle shimmer is divine.

You Make Me Smile Greeting

The greeting is also from the Colourful Seasons stamp set and is stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink. I am loving the wide and varied fonts being used in the stamp sets out of the new catalogue.

Speaking of new catalogues, mine have arrived here and those that I have arranged to send out to customers should be starting to arrive now. If you live in Australia, don’t have a demonstrator and would like a catalogue, please let me know your mailing address by email or phone on 0438 464451
