Dynamic Duos #69!

It's "Bold & Sassy" week at Dynamic Duos this week! Although the colors are "Old Olive" and "Pacific Point" and we are into the month of September, I still wanted to create something fallish. Here are this week's colors:

And this is my "fallish" card for this week:

I decided to use "Crumb Cake Cardstock" for my neutral instead of white or vanilla. My two leaves are embossed and although we at Stampin' Up! do not have pacific point embossing powder, I made my own version. I first inked my leaf stamp in "VersaMark Ink" and the again in "Pacific Point Ink" and stamped my image. I then sprinkled with "Clear Embossing Powder" and heat set with my "Heat Tool". The versamark keeps the ink wet long enough so embossing powder adheres to it! You'll notice how shiny my leaves are by looking at the photo below:

Here are the Stampin' Up! supplies I used:
  • Stamps: Magnificent Maple, Truly Grateful
  • Inks: VersaMark, Pacific Point, Old Olive
  • Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Pacific Point, Old Olive
  • Accessories: Glimmer Brads, Pacific Point 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon
  • Tools: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, Paper Piercer, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots
