Wednesday Wow!

Today's creation comes from Gretchen Barron, and it is most definitely a WOW! project!  Of course, all of her creations are fabulous!  :)

Here is what she had to say about it...

This project I'm really excited about! Aren't those leaves just gorgeous? The stamp set is Autumn Splendor from the new Holiday Mini Catalog. I stamped the leaves with Versamark Ink on Very vanilla Cardstock, and then heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I sponged on some ink -- Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede and just a little Dusty Durango, and then cut them out. I gave them a little shape with my fingers and mounted them with Stampin' Dimensionals, trying to maintain their curvy, flowing shapes. The little scrapbook is made using Small On Board Book Basics, Thoroughly Modern and Rich Razzleberry Patterns Designer Series Papers, and 5/8" Rich Razzleberry Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon. The tag is created using the Holiday Best Stamp Set (a Level 1 Hostess set) and the Wide Oval Punch. The inside sheets are cut from Very Vanilla Cardstock, with a 1" strip of DSP on the end of each page and the corners rounded with the Corner Rounder Punch. I used my Bind-it-All to put it all together. I'm so thrilled about the way these leaves turned out! You can find more photos and details on my blog post at

Thanks so much for sharing with us, Gretchen!

Until next week...
Happy Stampin'!
