Brutus Monroe Blog Hop | Fall / Autumn Inspiration

Hey everyone! Today I'm sharing my card for the Brutus Monroe blog hop. We are challenged to make Fall projects. I've been wanting to use this Jeepers designer toner sheet, which even though Halloween is over with it still works for the current season.
                                                            
While I waited for my laminator to warm up, I started trimming my foils into strips that would work on my Jeepers designer toner sheet panel. Also a great way to use up some scraps! It was a little tricky to get the foils to stay put but the parchment paper folder helps to hold everything together. I use the parchment paper to protect the paper and foil from the heated rollers and so that it doesn't roll up in the laminator. There are some spots that didn't get foiled on the designer toner sheet. Honestly, I think that is because my laminator is old and not the best, so I usually get spotty coverage. I do wait for the foil and paper to cool before pulling the foil.
I used some Distress Oxide inks that coordinate well with my red, gold and orange foils to create a more obvious ombre. The ink does sit on top of the foils. I use a micro fiber cloth to buff the ink off so that the foils shine again. 
Moving on to the rest of the card I stamped a whole bunch (16 in total.. I lost one somewhere) of the oak leaves that are part of the Fall Essentials stamp set, on to Alabaster 100lb card stock with Raven Detail ink. Then used Copic markers in shades of green to color them in. Can you guess what I did next? Yep.... I fussy cut them... luckily they are easy but there was a lot! 

I used the sentiment from the Fall Ya'll stamp set. Stamping it with Brutus Monroe clear embossing ink and heat embossing using the Wicked embossing powder. The perfect shade to match all those green leaves.
