CTMH Lovely Leaves and Gold Embossing

CTMH Lovely Leaves are gold embossed and then loosely watercolored for this dramatic look! CAS cards - watercolouring

It’s inevitable that some stamps must retire from a catalog to make way for new goodies, but I am sad to see this Lovely Leaves stamp set from CTMH retire at the end of this month.  It’s such an easy card and I was totally inspired (think “Copy And Stole Everything” – CASE) from Mischelle Smith’s work here in the Take Ten Stamper’s Sampler.  

I love Mischelle’s loose, flowy style of watercolouring paired with the pop of gold embossing.  I can’t wait to try this on more cards!

What rubber stamping supplies do I need to make this card?

I happened to use a thick, cold press watercolor paper which I cut to 8 1/2 x 11.  I like to run the cardstock folded to an A2 card size through my Big Shot to flatten it a bit.  Makes it easier to watercolor and emboss!  Other than the watercolor paper and “With Sympathy” sentiment, all supplies are from Close To My Heart.

Don’t forget – Lovely Leaves is one of the many stamps sets and products – CTMH will be retiring at the end of this month!  I’ve also posted some upcoming price increases on my Stamped Blessings FB page so if you haven’t already – please hop over and Like and then click Follow to make sure you stay in the loop!
