Paisleys & Posies

paisleyleavesI LOVE leaves…no…really I do!  It is right up there with trees.  I LOVE trees.  Okay the fact the trees have leaves, well, that probably have something to do with it!

I was looking for a challenge to join in and saw the challenge on The Paper Players was leaf and what can I say…I just HAD to join in the fun!

Well…then to figure out what leaf to use….hmmm…my new favorite set (Paisleys & Posies) had TWO leaves in it…JACKPOT!!! So I got to work and this is what I came up with!

Here’s the details

  • Mint Macaron – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Mint Macaron print – 1 1/2 x 4 1/4, add to bottom of card front, wrap piece of Delight Dijon 3/8″ grosgrain ribbon around the card front (ends are under the panel on the front).
  • Very Vanilla – 3 1/4 x 4 1/2, stamp dotted paisley using Versamark and gold emboss, layer on Rich Razzleberry – 3 3/8 x 4 5/8 and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Sweet Sugarplum – 3/8 x 1 3/4, stamp greeting using Basic Black, cut into a banner and add to card front
  • Stamp large leaf 3 times using Momento Black, color using Rich Razzleberry, Delightful Dijon and Mint Macaron markers, cut out (sorry…no framelit for this one, have to cut out!), layer and add over end of banner
  • Add some Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes to finish off

  • Whisper White – 2 x 3 3/4, punch out top using scallop tag topper, add 1 3/8 Crushed Curry Circle, Basic Black Tree and Kraft fence.

Paisleys & Posies

img_3391Yep..it is still another Paisleys & Posies card.  I am sooooo lovin’ this set and matching framelit.

For this card I wanted to use a blue color combo along with the copper and decided that Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay and Very Vanilla would work great with it.  I also wanted to use my new stencils from the Holiday Min.  I think it turned out pretty cool and love the touches of copper on there.  I do find though that I have a tough time getting a good picture of it!

Here’s the details…

  • Bermuda Bay – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Copper Foil – 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, cut out center of panel leaving a 1/2″ frame all around, add to front
  • Very Vanilla – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, use stencil and Pool Party ink to add background
  • Night of Navy – 1/4 x 4 1/4, add to panel
  • Copper foil – cut out the biggest paisley then cut out the inside paisley, stamp with dotted paisley using Versamark and Copper Emboss, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Bermuda Bay, stamp large flower using Versamark, copper emboss, cut out and add to card front
  • Night of Navy, stamp flower/stem using Versamark, copper emboss, cut out, Very Vanilla, stamp scallop swirl using Versamark copper emboss, cut out, layer with Night of Navy flower and add to card front
  • Stamp greeting using Night of Navy, add panel to card front.
