Hello Memory Box friends....Penny here today and I was shooting for a Fall creation, but my leaves came out on the Pastel side. So I am calling this a pre-Fall card. :)

If you are loving the pale colors, then go with it, otherwise adjust your inks, gelatos for a darker shade of leaves.

Here we go:


As always...start with a White cardstock base trimmed to 4.25 x 11 inches, fold in half.


Die cut Leaf Collage two times from a piece of acetate (we are making a stencil that you can keep).


Cut White cardstock 4.25 x 5.50 inches. Using your new stencil, apply gelatos mixed with Modeling Paste. In my example I used Metallic Mint, Raspberry and Orange Soda Gelatos.

While that is drying, die cut the Leaf Collage again from Watercolor paper. Choose a few of the largest leaves and watercolor them with your favorite paints, pencils or markers.




Wrap your stenciled panel with Purple ribbon, stamp the sentiment from the Each Day is a Blessing stamp set using VersaFine Onyx Black ink.

Add a sheer bow and a few of the watercolor leaves.

I love how versatile the Leaf Collage is for using on a card, scrapbook or making a stencil.  L O V E !!!


Happy Crafting,
