Gathering Leaves - Stampin' Up! Gather Together

   I got a bit of stamping time in the last 2 days and was able to finish 2 cards one of which I started back in August that I just couldn't find the time to finish between vacation, out of town visitors,  August stamp club and back to school.

  The card I'm sharing today is one for a challenge that has a great group of autumn colors. The Paper Players group has this rich color palette to work with. Cajun Craze, Merry Merlot, Pretty Peacock and a neutral.  Perfect for fall leaves I thought so I got to work with the new Gather Together bundle.

 The card base is Very Vanilla thick with a layer of Cajun Craze topped with an embossed piece of Pretty Peacock.  I thought the Tin Tile embossing folder would be a good compliment for my fall theme.  I lightly brushed the embossed panel with gold ink for a little bit of shimmer.

 The Gathered Leaves dies not only cut out the leaf shape they also emboss the texture on the leaves so I wanted to show that off with a few leaves in Merry Merlot and Cajun Craze.  They also got a bit of the gold ink treatment.

  The label Very Vanilla cardstock cut with the Stitched Labels dies.  I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink and then threaded the label with Braided Linen trim.  I added a little Braided Linen trim knot to each leaf stem as well and then popped them up with dimensionals.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
