Last month at our Red Hot Stampers' meeting we were challenged by our upline Glenda to make a card using a couple of different techniques that she showed us. I don't remember what they all were, but I do remember the one I used to make this card. It was to take the brown packing paper that comes with your Stampin' Up! order and cut out the leaves using the Bigz Autumn Accents Die. Next scrunch it up, slap it with the ink pad (only the old pads, doesn't work with the new ones) and there you have it...some pretty cool looking leaves with color. Oh, I ended up spritzing them with shimmer paint too. I also sponged mine a little because I must not have whacked it hard enough with the ink pad. lol My friend and fellow demonstrator Christi also made some cards using the same or similar technique. She made a bunch of cards and a tag. Wow did she ever go over the top with her cards! You can check them out on her blog here.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
