Lighthearted Leaves

CCMC371What a fun sketch challenge we have this week for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

I was looking through my stamp sets to go with the sketch and my first thought…oh…I’ll use acorn set.  NOPE…another team member used it.  Next up…donuts…I’ll use the donut set…right?  NOPE…another team member used it (I try, if I can to use something different).  So I’ve been playing with this set and thought…okay…I can do this!  It could be EITHER leaves or trees!  LOL!!!

Here’s the details…

  • Mint Macaron – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, layer onto Night of Navy 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.
  • Add Silver Cording Trim through a large Basic Silver Button and add to layer.  Add layer to card front using dimensionals.
  • Stamp the leaf image on Night of Navy, Perfect Plum, and Mint Macaron using Versamark and white emboss., cut out (or use framelits) and add to card front.
  • Perfect Plum – 3/8 x 2 3/4, stamp greeting using Versamark and white emboss, cut into a banner and add using dimensionals.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team!

  1. I love this card (I too almost went with this set – there must be something about this week’s sketch!!) Great choice of colours too; I love how you embossed in white onto coloured cardstock, it really makes your leaves stand out against the white background. nice addition of the button and cord too!

  2. LOVE! The color combo is super…I’ll defiantly be using that one in the future after seeing your card!

  3. I never thought of the leaves as trees. Great idea! The white embossing is so elegant – especially with the touches of silver. Beautiful!

  4. OOPS, this is the card I meant to “love”!

  5. I guess we are just anxious to use our new fall stamps! This is a cool color palette for the leaves – very pretty!

  6. Those leaves are perfect for this sketch Mary. I actually see them as trees when I look at them. Love the colour choice and the Silver Cording Trim on the top. TFS>
