Sunday Morning

Today we have been invited over to a neighbours for something to eat at lunch time and so without Sunday lunch to prepare I have a little time in my craft room.
This card is based on the challenge at TIMEOUT
I love the bold pop of green in the picture and I used a piece of photographic paper which I had sploshed some shades of green alcohol inks onto, for the die cut leaves in my card.  The stripes were from a SU stamp, which I was considering taking off the block in order to get a clean image using my MISTI, but the second stamping, peculiarly, was really pale until I realised I had used Versamark instead of Versafine  (made a mess of the ink pad  too with the black ink from the previous stamping). SO I decided to sprinkle on some black embossing powder and use that instead.
The Hello is triple stacked from a Stamp Market die.

This is another card using the freebie Crafter's Companion stamps and die, from Simply Cards and Papercrafts Magazine.
Once more I cut the sentiment from the wreath to use separately. The only thing I added was a Memory Box die cut of hanging mittens, but I put the stamped and heat embossed mittens from the freebie set on the string instead of the die cut ones.

Here is a simple card using a leaf which I die cut and coloured sometime ago. I used distress inks and a little mica spray.
I heat embossed the Clearly Besotted sentiment and added both it and the leaf to a piece of hessian.
