Gather a variety of foliage dies, punches and stamped images to create embellishments for the Paper Sprouts Technique Challenge.

Paper Sprouts Techniques 
Die Cuts - Julie's Sprouts Card

Select papers from the Sprouts collection and cut with a selection of foliage dies. 

Add the leafy wreath to a yellow panel with Spruce Ink. Color each leaf with green and yellow pencils. Stamp the sentiment onto the center of the image and fussy cut with a craft knife. Adhere the foliage onto an argyle background with Bookbinding Glue dispensed from a Needle-tipped Applicator. Add foam adhesive circles to the back of the wreath and position over the foliage to complete the card. 

Stamped and Fussy Cut - Julie's Sprouts Artist Trading Card

Add Distress and Distress Oxide inks to a watercolor paper panel.

Spritz the inks with water to create a mottled texture.

Stamp the sprigs onto the inked panel with Spruce Ink.

Fussy cut the images with scissors or a craft knife.  

Add the potted sprouts to the front of an Artist Trading Card. 

Paper Punched - Lisa's Card

Cut multiple sprigs with a Martha Stewart paper punch. Adhere the foliage into the shape of a wreath to embellish a card paired with the perfect sentiment from the Orchard collection.
