It's Time for "Leafing" the Summer Shadows Dies

Well, It's Time for "Leafing" the Summer Shadows Dies. We've created some lovely cards using these free dies and this will be our last in the series. So since we are saying good bye and "leafing" this set I thought we'd use the "Leaf" dies  for a nice simple and quick card...

Shaded summer cinnammon

And a bit closer to our die cuts...

We're using the warm copper to coordinate with the lovely Cinnamon Cider in the Harvest Meadows Designer Series Paper...and topping it off with the new Brushed Metallic self-adhesive dots. We used the Stazon Saddle Brown ink (one of my favorites during the autumn designs because of it's rich soft brown color). This is such a simple design and yet very striking in the autumn tones. 

We hope you have enjoyed discovering several beautiful ways to use your new FREE Summer Shadows dies. Tune in next week for something new!

Shaded summer pink row

And a little closer look at those half flowers and leaves...

Shaded Summer - pink row cuThese layering dies give you depth and beautiful highlighting that is so easy and makes you look like a pro.  You can do a contrast in colors as we've done here--using the black to give that sharp crisp overlay. Or you can use two shades of a color--for example two shades of blue as we did for these flowers in  one of our earlier creations..this give less contrast but still a good depth of the image ....

There's another way to break up a home...want to see?

Feels like home 4

Yes, same home but we broke the panels horizontally this time...pretty awesome, right?  In this card we've brightened the background by using the Beautifully Penned designer paper with the white predominating and just small black dots to carry out our black and white color scheme. And instead of coloring the door we just added a hit of red with the narrow  background peeping at the top and bottom of the image.

This is our last in the Feels Like Home Series...I hope you've enjoyed the multiple designs that are possible with this wonderful stamp set as well as some fun with the play on words as we progressed with our designs.
