All that glitters here is gold leaf

Here are two uses of gold leaf: the dress stamped on acetate and the page pebbles. I also used black magic Core'dinations card stock and the new Cuttlebug embossing folder Moroccan Screen. The circles are Nesties, but the ovals and photo corner are SU! punches.
On this critter (a small rubber lizard purchased from the dollar store) I used multi-colored leafing flakes. The red card stock is Core'dinations embossed in the new Victoria folder from Cuttlebug.

I have a tutorial on gold leaf over at Cuttlebug Challenge blog. I hope you have time to check it out :)

June, you are my paper crafting idol. You rocked this tutorial. Another use for my acetate! I am going to pick up some gold leaf at Michael’s this weekend and give this a go.

Just returned from vacation and WOW. The little animals are sooo cute! Can't wait to try this. GREAT idea, and I'm going to the $ store ASAP to get these cute animals.

My stash has gold leaf, acetate, and the glue pen. Who knew that I can raid my son's toy box for the animals. You are the cardmaking QUEEN! Fabulous!!!!!

Great tutorial June! I love all your tips for using gold leaf and ideas for things to use it on. I've never used it before and you make it look very easy although I'm sure it isn't :)! I think it's all perfect and your cards are gorgeous. Hugs, Chris

Brilliant June.
I never would have thought of using double sided adhesive for gold leafing. It's brilliant. What did I say about needing more supplies when I see fab cards on other's blogs!!!
Where does it end?
Great cards too!

Wow June I love these:o) I've never worked with Gold Leaf and would love to be able to make gorgeous cards like these.

At first I saw the dress, DIVINE. Then I saw the lizard and I had to squeal -- totally wonderfully awesome and creative!!!!

Jenny said...

WOW June! I love that dress image. Also that lizard looks really. But I do hate lizard, I'm horrified seeing a lizard. That colored leafing flakes looks fun to use. Hopefully I can try to use them someday.
