A Leafy Affair 

I love participating in the Altenew Educators Hop. It’s one of the things I missed the most while I was on hiatus from blogging! This is my first hop since returning to the world wide web! It’s also and IG Reels Hop too! All the details are at the bottom of this post!

∼Zero Waste∼

Thats just a great name for a stamp set, and another Craft Your Life monthly offering.

For my card today I stamped, and heat embossed the image in full onto 2 pieces of

51/2 by 5 1/2 sheet of card stock. 

I then die cut the image and separated out all the leaves from one. I colored them with both crisp dye ink as well as markers from the Tahitian Terrace markers.

Some Details

After coloring and adhering the leaves to the other stamped piece, I ink blended the edge of my 6 x 6 card base to create a frame around my image. Lastly, I added a pretty ribbon, and sentiment and glued my card panel to the base with liquid adhesive.

IG Reel

You can find my reel on my Instagram and see it in motion! I hope you’ll leave some comments for the participating educators and show us some !
