simon says stamp - outline clustered leaves

The latest release over at Simon Says Stamp is called You are Loved and has hearts in every way, shape and form for you. I'm late to the party but I was soooo lucky to get a beautiful die to play with and today I have my first creation for you. Thanks Simon!

Meet Outline Clustered Leaves. (You might remember her sister, Clustered Leaves.)

Meet my card.

distress inks
pearlescent embossing paste

Here's a close-up. Texture. Sparkle. Shimmer. Pretty girly, eh?

It all started with the cheapo makeup brushes I bought at the supermarket. I created this BG using them and Victorian Violet, Milled Lavender and Aged Mahogany DI. Sprinkled with water and perfect pearls mix too.

Then there was this PP pad that fell into my basket at the dollar store (Action, for those of you in Germany). This PP matches this color scheme perfectly so I die cut the outline leaves from it. Before adhering the die cut, I die cut Clustered Leaves to make my own stencil. I applied the embossing paste through it.

When it was dry I adhered the outline branch, a couple of the leaf pieces and the die cut sentiment. It's dark gray actually. Some sequins add to the wispiness (is that a word?) of the design.

Be sure to check out the release if you haven't, and all the makes with it in the gallery at Simon Says Stamp. I'm happy I got to have some "fun" with this new set.

I'm playing at:
Card Concept - Pink Party (I've gone mixed media with the pink tones and a touch of charcoal)
Time Out - Loving
SSS Work it Wednesday - December Try Something New (my die!)
SSS Flickr challenge - Stencil it (yep!)

Such gorgeous colors in your background and that embossing paste stenciling is genius! Gorgeous paper too! Such a beautiful card, Maria!

What a pretty card! I have a stencil similar to this from them and it is really nice as a different focal point on a card. I love that you've cut this from patterned paper. xx

I LOVE everything about this card. Love the colors you chaose for your background, love the patterned paper, and the arrangement of the leaves. The sentiment is fantastic, and the white and gray really make it stand out. We certainly need more kindness in this world. Thanks so much for sharing this beauty with us at Time Out!
