throwback thursday - turning a new leaf stamp set


It's Throwback Thursday at Papertrey Ink and today we are visiting the Turning a New Leaf stamp set.

Turning a New Leaf is a set that is an absolute classic design. Even though it debuted years ago, the leaf designs are not dated and look fresh and new on a project created today. Leaf designs are also ones that work well for a sympathy card like the one that I created to share today.


I used the emboss resist technique to stamp the layered leaves on this card. The very first thing I did was stamp the sentiment from the Penned Elegance stamp set with a waterproof black ink. That way the sentiment shows through everything and doesn't smear through all of the inking and stamping.

Next, I embossed several of the leaf branches with clear embossing powder. I inked around the embossed leaves with an ink blending tool and Honey Nut Ink. After I was happy with how the inking looked, I added some spats and spatters with water, Honey Nut ink, and Cocoa Bean ink.


Then I stamped leaf branches with Honey Nut ink around the whole background. Wherever there was embossing it resisted any of the dye inks from inking and stamping. I added some splatters of gold color spray.

To ground the sentiment a bit, I impressed a circle around it using one of the Shape Shifters: Circle 2 dies and then added a few pieces of clear confetti for a final touch.
