Hello, Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. I am excited to share today's projects with you. With my projects, I hope that you will try out some unique and creative takes with Grape Leaves Stamp & Die Bundle from the Beauty of the Season Release Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Decals/Embossing Folders. This set of stamps has 3-step stamping with stunning leaf details and is unbe-LEAF-ably fun to create!
This one-layer card is 100% stamped. The size of these grape leaves are perfect for a card front. Here, I only used two parts of the grape leaf stamps as I left out the outline stamping. To me, the colors and intricate details truly speak volumes!
Before stamping, I lined up String Art Rectangles Die for the frame. From the Grape Leaves Stamp Set, I used the smallest stamp (a line) and inked up all 4 sides! I love the look of Faux Stitching!
With Altenew's amazing choices of inks, I inked up the leaves in yellow (Citrus Burst, Sunray & Chamomile), pink/yellow (Coral Berry, Baby Pink/Citrus Burst), and green (Lime, Shadow Creek, Firefly from Green Valley Oval Set). I love the ease of using a MISTI because you can add and blend colors as you stamp. I popped up the Hello die and added gold thread underneath it. If you love using stencils, the Stencil Mask is also perfect for inking up the leaves.
My next card is a clean and simple one with a shaker card element. I started out by stamping the large leaf with Mixed Media Pigment Ink. I then die cut the leaf on another piece of cardstock (measured 4″ x 5 1/4″).
To make the design cohesive, I stamped the leaves and sentiment on a strip of paper on top. I love that this card is still mail-friendly!
I dry embossed (with Grape Leaves Dies) and inked up the surface of the leaves with double-up foam. Thanks to the Coordinating Grape Leaves Die, I was able to cut out 3 leaves. As you can see, one of the leaves was stamped in Solid Stamp (with no details or outline). It is so realistic , isn't it?
The fun doesn't stop there… I added Enamel Dots, and this card was complete!
I actually created a few more since this post, and here is the overview of my projects with this set. Don't you think it's time to turn a new LEAF and get creative? I hope that you had fun leafing through today's post. Thank you for stopping by!
