Vintage Leaves

Vintage Leaves with DoilyHappy Wednesday!  Today I’m sharing another card made with the beautiful Vintage Leaves stamp set and coordinating Leaflets Framelits.  My inspiration for this card came from a card presented at the Stampin’ Up! convention this summer which used the Lighthearted Leaves in the 2015 Holiday Catalog.  Did you know that both the traditional Vintage Leaves & the whimsical Lighthearted Leaves stamp sets coordinate with the Leaflets Framelits?

For this card, I started with a Very Vanilla card base and added a small border from a piece of Happy Haunting DSP.  I used Crushed Curry, Tangelo Twist, and Mossy Meadow for the leaves and the sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede.  SInce I love gold accents with the leaves, I added a small strip of Gold Glimmer Paper, a Gold Metallic Foil Doily, a few Gold Sequins, and a bow made from the Metallic Gold Baker’s Twine.

You Made My Day

March CC CardThis is one of the cards made in my Coffee & Cards group this month.  It demonstrates a couple of techniques that add  “Wow!” factor.

The first technique is another use of an embossing folder.  By inking the raised side of the Honeycomb Embossing Folder in Sahara Sand, placing a piece of Whisper White cardstock over the inked surface and lightly rubbing around the cardstock, a subtle honeycomb background is created.

To create the layered sun image, position the oval with the sentiment onto the background and secure with a post-it note.  Then stamp the sun image from Kinda Eclectic onto both layers.  Remove the oval, adhere it to a larger Rose Red oval and pop up the sentiment layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
