Meet the Design Team from all over the world:

This is a monthly tutorial and this month, we are highlighting any product in the Mini Catalogue that isn't Christmas themed. I have used the Gorgeous Leaves Bundle. You can see the products on page 47 of the August-December Mini Catalogue.

I started off with the dark Blackberry Bliss card stock and thought the copper foil would look great against it. As always, I stamp on basic white and used the woodgrain image vertically about 4 times along the center with Blackberry Bliss ink. I then started on the leaves .

Gorgeous Leaves - AC pg 47

Intricate Leaves Dies - AC pg 47

I made my leaf bouquet (as I like to call it) with the stamps and coordinating dies. Using Cinnamon Cider ink, I stamped one each of the leaf images onto Basic White card stock and die cut them out. I then grabbed the leaf dies and cut them out in Copper Foil and Blackberry Bliss. To make the bouquet, I placed all the pieces down until I was happy with how it looked. As you can see, I started with two of the stamped images. Then, you can build from there. All the leaves are adhered with liquid glue underneath the sentiment or hidden for extra strength.

There are no sentiments in this set but I am sure you will have plenty of them in your stash. The one I have used is from Tasteful Touches from the Annual Catalogue. As I have used copper foil, I thought to emboss the sentiment in copper emboss powder and doesn't it look great! I added a small piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock as well as a piece of copper foil that I have used my favourite punch on - Banners Pick A Punch.
