New crafty stuff

Hi! I just love it when I get new crafty stuff, so I was really happy to get the package from Simon Says Stamp yesterday. I had ordered two embossing folders of leaves and one of pumpkins...a Diamond circle stencil and some white stencil cream( mine had all dried up!). The first thing I opened up was the Leaves embossing folder and I had fun playing with it all afternoon. Of all the things I created this is my favorite:

Here's how it came about...for my first project  I embossed the leaves on white card stock then gave it a light rub  with copper pigment ink. I backed the embossed panel on copper glitter paper and also used the glitter paper to die cut the sentiment

 Here's a closer look :                                                                                                                              

 Nice card ...but then I thought wonder what those leaves would look like colored...

Yep...they look good colored! I love my Copics! Granted it took awhile to color , but that is my idea of a good time!, end of the story is I love this embossing folder. :)
