Falling for Dazzling Leaves

Hi Everyone!

Welcome!  Today's card is actually a two-fer; it is my card for this week's Add A Little Dazzle Challenge and it is a sneak peek at a new release coming from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps on Friday!  If you joined the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Sweet Perks Club, you may have already seen this great addition to the fall goodies at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. It also is perfect for the challenge at Just Us Girls this week, which is 'Leaves'.

OK, so these leaf dies both cut and emboss; they are my new favorite dies!  Goodness, they are perfect for the Add A Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets and leave a gorgeous embossed impression on the leaf.  This is not the only leaf shape there is; there are several other styles.

The Add A Little Dazzle Challenge this week is to be inspired by this photo~

Leaves, leaves and more leaves, that is what I saw!  Actually, I love walking through the leaves during the fall- love the sound of their wonderful crunch under foot and the crisp fall air! 
I really wanted to change things up a bit and needed a new fall color combo.  So while I kept the leaves, I wanted to find something other than orange and yellow.  I was totally inspired by this photo from the Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge, so I went with it, even though it is too late to link up the card.  :)

Awesome colors, aren't they? 
I am also linking this up to The Mixed Media Card Challenge #3- Autumn Colors.

My card is made in a 'Chupa-esque' style.  I die cut my leaves from Golden Glimmer, Baby Blue and Brushed Bronze (my personal fave) Craft Metal Sheets from Add A Little Dazzle.  I die cut a wreath using a couple of circle dies and then adhered my leaves to the cardstock wreath.  Some were adhered with Crystal Effects and others with SU dimensionals.
I watered down some gold acrylic paint and spattered it on my PTI Rustic Cream cs.  I used my SU Melon Mambo marker and color spritzer to add more spatter to the cs.
The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Leaf Silhouette Stamp Set; I have embossed it in gold on vellum.
If you just have to have some of your own metal to make your fall leaves, 
you can do so HERE.  I thank you in advance as I get credit for your purchase. 
 Thank You! 

Have a blessed day!

Lee Ann  :)
