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,





Loving the look of the leaves on this beautiful card - TFS

The colors make this card really special!

Very pretty Penny. You have so much talent!

Beautiful card Penny! The pastel colours suit this time of year perfectly. I make stencils with my dies, I find it challenging to get plastic that is thin enough for the thin dies to cut. I use project covers from the office supply section of the dollar store, or scrapbook page protectors, they work very well. Thank you for sharing this inspiring, beautiful card today.

Fall cards are always my very favorite to make. I'm loving this leaf collage die!! It may even become one of my all time favorites!! (And that's saying a lot since I own a ton of your dies!! :)) Lovely card!! Thanks for reminding me about Gelatos! :) I have some that I need to dig out and use!!

And did I miss the announcement of winners for the last blog blitz??? Yesterday or maybe the day before I scrolled through all the posts since the last day of the blitz and didn't see any announcement.

Such pretty colours and so different too love it thanks for sharing.
