STAMPlorations-Hashtag Authentic stamps & Leaf Prints stencilI love the design on the Leaf Print stencil. I had some fun mixing my white embossing paste with Distress inks.

To finish it off I added some loose silver thread and glossy accent dots.

  1. Wow, gorgeous cards. I love how you use color. I am also enjoying your craftsy class on using color and picking up some great tips there too….

  2. GOR. GEE. US. That ombre looks good enough to eat. And the stitched hearts on your second card remind me of a beaut you created a couple years ago. A Laura classic.

  3. I am going to try coloring the paste because this is a gorgeous card. I love the soft colors and the texture. Also love that stitching on the second card. I’ll check that out at SSS.

  4. Each time I see you doing this multi color embossing I think why haven’t I tried it in LOVE with your cards..each time you do this…must def…try it!!

  5. You do that gorgeous paste ombre effect so well…it really is “AMAZING”. Love those liitle stitched hearts on your second card…great pp choices.

  6. Gorgeous cards! I absolutely love the way the colored embossing paste looks.. I’m definitely going to have to give this technique a try! TFS!

  7. Love the ombre! I have been wanting to try doing that since you did the video with the tiny hearts. And your cards for Simon Says are so beautifully clean and fun! And thanks for the good laugh too.

  8. Your ombre stenciled card is: #beautiful#authentic#creative#amazing! I feel a ‘shopping’ coming on after seeing your gorgeous showcase! *grin*

  9. I is taking everything I have not to jump on the Embossing paste photo–YUM! Now when you scraped off the paste with your palette knife did you do it on an angle or straight down and it looks fairly thin?

  10. Oooh, love the colours with the distress. Must try that. And the multiple colours of paste. What fun. The black on white and white on black sentiment is fab. And while I’m gushing, the glossy accent dots are super. I liked all your stitched hearts over at Simon Says Stamp as well. HUGZ

    And I am still laughing about “my hair looks like Tina Turner…” That would be me too!!

  14. I love these beautiful stitched heart cards, they look simply wonderful! and the texture and colours of the stencilled leaves card is very effective.
