This was my first time to use the new Mica Flakes offered in the Holiday Catalog.
Leaves are stamped with Crushed Curry ink then smeared a bit with Multipurpose Glue. Tex's Tip: Remember ... the Multipurpose Glue has a broad 'smearing' tip on the bottom that also dispenses the glue. You'll want to allow a wee bit of drying time before handling the mica-flaked leaves.
If you had to have the Vintage Leaves stamps and coordinating Leaflets Framelits last year as I did, this is a brand new idea for "falling" for them all over again. So glad these classics are still in my collection this year!
For added texture, I chose Vellum card stock - that look of white is a natural for "frosty" appearance! The Petal Burst embossing folder created the leafy look. Then, I used the oak leaf die to make a leafy cut along the right edge of the vellum layer for added interest. I really like how that turned out .. so much more cool than just a straight cut, IMO.
Now to get back to my studio de-stash! Not completely overhauling as in clear it out + start over as we've seen trending in this stampy world ... but a quasi-clean-out of sorts. A vintage crafty store in a nearby town is offering booth/table space on Saturday. Crafters will be 'de-stashing' unloved, not-needed items that have been taking up precious space. Not a retail sales venue at all ... so not a "crafters fair" for selling hand-made wares or retail items. I've got so much stuff to price-label by then!
