Hi there,

Today I'd like to share with you another of the October Reveal Sets over at Sparkle N Sprinkle: Autumn Girlfriends Set 810.  These two girls are having a blast in their pile of leaves! Isn't it fun when you have a friend that you can just do silly things with? I've got a girlfriend coming this afternoon, who is just like that! We share the same birthday, she was a neighbor, then she moved first to Connecticut and now is in New York. We see each other maybe three times a year, and each time we do, it's like she never left! There are lots of leaves in my yard this morning, maybe you'll catch us out there this afternoon!!!

I began by stamping the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored with Copics. The sky and the grass were sponged with Memento Bamboo Leaves and Summer Sky inks.

The leaves were then applied with glue from the Fine Tip Nuvo Glue Pen and Sparkling Snow was sprinkled on top, to give the pile of leaves lots of sparkle!

The image was cut with Memory box Cross Stitched Frame Border. These girls love to sew together too!

My background was a piece of white cardstock which I misted with water using the Mini Mister and then tapped on some yellow, orange, red and green Nuance powders. I dried it with my heat tool, to quicken up the process! I then made another piece with the same colors and cut my leaves from that using the Sizzix Tattered Leaves die.

My leaves were applied with Moonstone Glimmer Paste, I applied the paste with a spatula on top of a piece of protective backing sheet from the Adhesive Sheets. It was important here, as some of the colors ran into the paste, so I reused it on the leaves, rather than putting it back in the jar, contaminated. Nothing was wasted!

I cut out the little die from the middle of the background sheet.

The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Black Detail. The little leaves were colored with Orange Copic and then I attached it to the bottom of the image. These were then attached to the Nuance background with Foam Squares. The background was layered to a black card base.

The leaves were attached to the card using 1/4" Tear-ific Tape and Foam Squares. Some were placed on top of the image and some tucked under - like a pile of leaves. Those hanging over the edges were cut off with my scissors. 

That brings us to my finished card for today:

Hope you've enjoyed your stay and that I've inspired you to get some of the gorgeous Moonstone Glimmer Paste!
