Good morning blog friends....

I thought for today I would show you another way of designing a card using only one of the stamps from yesterday's '6 Cards In 60 Minutes' video (again, apologies for the blur at the end of the video!)

This card measures 6"x4", the same as yesterday's bundle of cards

I stamped and embossed the leaf numerous times across the card.  I used a  Versafine Clear Embossing Ink Pad and Hero Arts White Embossing Powder

Colour was then added using distress oxide inks in; fossilized amber, spiced marmalade and vintage photo.  When the card was fully coloured I used a piece of paper towel to buff the stamped images

I stamped the sentiment, apologies here as this is another 'unknown make', (it is a set of rubber stamps) using StazOn in black, onto white card, die cut it and added the same inks as on the card

The frame was die cut 3 times and I used left over card from my box of mixed brown card stock for this.  The cut out pieces were used on the inside of the card

I used 2 dies from Spellbinders's A2 Matting Basics B die set to create the frame

On the inside of the card I added the 2 brown cards from the frame then a smaller panel of white card

I then used 2 more stamps from the same set mentioned earlier and the inside

I also stamped the leaf onto the corner of the envelope 

And this is the card from yesterday showing the leaf on the right-hand side

Until tomorrow....



  1. Love the colours of this card - this sort of background works for me!

  2. Lovely card, I do like the lay out of it with the gorgeous colours

  3. Ideas for Men's cards are always welcome!! Thank you, June

  4. I do so love the technique of stamping a shape, embossing it and then colouring the background any way, in the knowledge the orig stamped shapes will never be obliterated by a 'mistake' - if you know what i mean.
    The colours are just perfect for this time of year xxx

  5. Hi this is a stunning card I love the design. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  6. A gorgeous card June. Thank you.
