Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 151 - Die Cut Flowers

Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 151 - Die Cut Flowers

 First day of fall and I wanted to do an autumn card for my sister.  I had a lot of fun creating these leaves out of my Cherry Lynn leaf die as well as McGill punch for the maple leaf.  First I cut them out and applied the fall colors to the leaves.  Second, I pressed the leaves on a Versa Mark pad before adding clear embossing powder.  After using the hot embossing gun, I would shape the leaves again.  The leaves on the left top is from Cherry Lynn Flourish Leaf Strip B179.. 

The flowers were made using the Cherry Lynn Shasta Daisy B310.  I used  autumn gold glitter paper to cut out the daisies.  I applied rustic colors to the edge and then pressed the flowers on a Versa mark pad before adding clear embossing powder.  I found out that if I didn't use the embossing powder on this paper, the ink would easy rub off.  I colored the center of the flower using a green Copic Marker.  The center of the flower is the circle from the Cherry Lynn Maron's Wedding Garland DL218.  I cut the centers out and rubbed the center with Versa mark and added a brown and red embossing powder.

The branches in the flower arrangement is the Memory Box Woodland branch die.  

I used the Marianne Design LR0279 for the center frame of the picture from Wee Stamps colored with Copic markers.  The saying "Thinking of You" is  a Marianne Collectable stamp as well as the Marianne Collectable die to cut for the label below. The outer frame is a Spellbinder decorative frame.
