Vintage Leaves by Stampin’ Up!

Vintage Leaves by Stampin’ Up! 

This week’s colour challenge over at the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge blog had me a little stumped at first I must say! The first card I made was ok – but it didn’t really appeal to me that much to be honest! Then I thought about the colours a bit more. They feel a bit autumnal to me, which is why I think I found them hard. I am trying to get into spring even though the weather in the UK has admittedly been very autumnal feeling so far. But hopefully warmer weather is just around the corner!

In the end on I settled on using Vintage Leaves by Stampin’ Up! And I actually really like the way this card turned out in the end. What do you think?

Vintage Leaves by Stampin' Up! Tracy May

I started by stamping the grid from Timeless Textures twice in Tip Top Taupe along the centre right of a Whisper White card front. Then I added some Mint Macaron splats also from Timeless Textures. I added a twirl of Old Olive Baker’s twine under a leaf from Vintage Leaves stamped in Old Olive.

The card base is Mint Macaron and the sentiment, from Thoughtful Banners, is stamped in Tip Top Taupe on Tip Top Taupe card stock.

To add some extra interest, I added some Rhinestones. Overall I like how it’s turned out. I will miss Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe when they retire at the end of May. They are great colours that have worked well for the last two years!

I hope you also like my creation for this week’s challenge. Please do pop over and see what the rest of the lovely design team have come up with to inspire you. Please do join in too – it’s great fun.
