Just Breathe Leaf Ribbon Card

I just love this beautiful Leaf Ribbon and decided to use it with the Just Breathe sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.  Enjoy making your own card with this easy to use Leaf Ribbon.
Just Breathe Leaf Ribbon CardSUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Colorful Seasons Photopolymer #143726
Ink:  VersaMark
Stampin’ Write Marker: Call Me Clover
Cardstock:  Mango Melody
Heat Embossing:  White embossing powder #109132
Embossing Buddy #103083
Heat Tool #129053
Ribbon:  Leaf Ribbon #146905
Adhesives:  SNAIL
Glue Dots

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Mango Melody card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your Mango Melody card front at 3-3/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Color the edge with your Call Me Clover Marker.
3.  Rub your card front with your Embossing Buddy.  Stamp your sentiment in VersaMark ink.  Cover completely with your White embossing powder.  Pour the excess back into the container.  Flick the back a couple of times to remove the excess embossing powder from your cardstock.  Use the High Speed on your Heat Tool to melt the embossing powder until it is shiny.
4.  String your Leaf Ribbon above and below your sentiment.  Use Glue Dots on the back of 4 leaves (or so) to hold each length of the Leaf Ribbon in place.  If desired, add a couple of Leaves to two of the corners.  Put a Glue Dot under each of these leaves.  Trim the ribbon along the edge of the cardstock.  Attach this layer to your card base.
Your Card is finished.

Life is Beautiful Copper Leaf Fall Card

Life is Beautiful Copper LeavesSUPPLIES:

Ink: Cajun Craze
Cardstock:  Whisper White
Cajun Craze
Copper Foil Sheets #142020
Printer paper
Big Shot:  Seasonal Layers Thinlits #143751

Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets OR Tombow Glue OR SNAIL

2.  Stamp your sentiment on Whisper White cardstock.  Punch out with Starburst Punch.  Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back.
Leaves.
Adhesive NOTE:
~The easiest way to attach the leaves is to put a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet cut to the same size as your cardstock on the back of the cardstock.  I usually forget, but really enjoy just peeling off the adhesive backing to attach the die cut.
~You can also put small amounts of Tombow Glue on the back of your die cut to attach it.
~If you are feeling really lazy, you can cover the back of your die cut with SNAIL.  I will have to let you know later about how long things stay stuck on the cards.
3.  Die-Cut your Leaves.  Cut three detailed large leaves and two small solid leaves from your Copper Foil Sheet.  Put a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet on the back if desired.
~Here is the Sandwich to use:  Big Shot Platform with Thin Die Adapter (OR Multipurpose Platform with all tabs closed.), FLAT Bottom cutting plate, Printer Paper folded in half on the cutting plate, Copper Foil Sheet with shiny side touching the Printer Paper, Die with cutting edge on back of Foil Sheet, Top cutting plate.  The Printer Paper helps keep the Foil Sheet shiny and smooth.  Without the Printer Paper, your Foil Sheet picks up all the marks on your cutting plate.
4. Finish Your Card.  Lay out the leaves and the sentiment on your card front.  Attach them.
5.  Optional:  Add a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock on the inside of the card to write on.  Stamp a Cajun Craze Leaf in the lower corner if desired.
