I made a card today for a Use Your Stash challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. The theme is leaves. I see that the Shopping Our Stash Weekly Challenge is also leaves. I will add it to that challenge as well.
The leaves and swirls are from a stamp set from Gina K Designs called Stitched Leaves. The cardstock I used is called Blue Lagoon, also GKD. The greeting is from a Paper Pumpkin kit. I had several sheets of backgrounds I created a few months ago using the Polished Stone technique. I stamped the leaves and cut them from two of those pieces.
I love challenges that enable me to use my stash. It has been a long time since these images have seen ink and I enjoyed creating with this set.

Beautiful card. The leaves are gorgeous.
Oh how that polished stone shines. You are such a mixed media diva!
Thanks! I have several leaves cut. I should make something else.
I’ve always liked this stamp set and still use mine quite a bit. I love what you did here. It is really pretty.
Beautiful leaves and am going to check out your polished stone technique.
Thanks! I think the embossing hides a lot of the colors, but I find using embossing ink works better than other ink I have tried to stamp on this background. Stazon ink would work as it is glossy paper, but I do not like the smell of that ink, so do not use it. I have tried it before.
Your “polished stone” leaves are gorgeous, and I love them on the blue card stock! So pretty!!
Thank you! I laid the leaves on all sorts of cardstock before settling on this color.
Gorgeous!!! Love those beautiful leaves.

Thank you! I need to shop my stash a lot more than I do. Thanks for the challenge to help me do that!
I love the shine on your leaves, gold embossing is always special and it really works with the blue. Thanks for Shopping your Stash with us this time.
