Thinking of you

Finally posting two cards that I made in September. I love leaf stamps and Altenew's Leaf Canopy has a lot of possibilities for spring through fall.  
Card #1

The outline leaf spray was stamped with distress ink on a white PTI Tipped Tops die cut panel. The solid leaf spray was inked with several distress inks, misted with a light water spray before stamping inside the outline image. A Sentiment Suite: Thinking of You (The Greetery) sentiment in the corner was embossed with Lawn Fawn rose gold. The leaf panel was foam mounted on a larger Tipped Tops panel cut from kraft Bitty Big paper. The two panels were glued to a brown card front.

Card #2

Both sizes of the outline stamps were stamped in brown and clear embossed on a white panel. Once again I inked the solid leaf sprays with several distress inks, separately stamping each ink until satisfied with the color combinations. I used a wet brush to soften the edges of the colors. A spattering of the same distress inks adds texture to the panel that was trimmed with a SSS stitched rectangle die. Two washi tapes were laid on a white card stock strip and die cut with the Altenew Fine Alphabet letters, totally inspired by Virginia Lu of Yes, Virginia. The washi hello was stacked with two more layers before it was glued on a dark brown banner. The panel was attached to a kraft card.  Linked to: Yes, Virginia's Show and Share
