Vintage Leaves by Stamping’ Up! #CCMC448

So what do you think of today’s colour challenge over at Create with Connie & Mary? As soon as I saw these colours, I knew I wanted to use the Vintage Leaves by Stamping’ Up! stamp set and create today’s card. I don’t know why though. Perhaps I have seen these colours on Pinterest or similar for a leafy card? Who knows? Anyway this is what I came up with (whilst hoping I haven’t inadvertently copied someone else!)

I still need to sort out the software that I use to add my watermarks. For some reason it is compressing the image and making it look grainy! But hopefully it’s clear enough to see the layers I have created?

  • I started by stamping the leaves in Pool Party and then stamping over them with a splatter from Gorgeous Grunge in Smoky Slate and Chocolate Chip;
  • I then stamped off the leaves in Chocolate Chip and before stamping over the Pool Party leaves;
  • I stamped the large leaf in Chocolate Chip on a separate piece of Whisper White and then cut it out using the co-ordinatelu framelits dies;
  • I wrapped Linen thread around the card front and attached it to the leaf before tying in a bow;
  • The sentiment is from Thankful Thoughts and is also in Chocolate Chip’
  • I adhered the card front to a Smoky Slate card base!

So what do you think? I hope you like it! All in all it came together pretty easily.

Thanks for stopping by. Please do pop over and see what the rest of the lovely design team have come up with for you this week!

Vintage Leaves by Stampin’ Up! #CCMC432

Yay it’s Thursday again and time for another challenge over at Create with Connie & Mary. This week it’s a colour challenge! I just love the colours this week and I thought I would try something different this week by using a lot of one colour. Vintage Leaves by Stampin’ Up! was my choice of stamp set. I’ve wanted to use it with the copper embossing powder since I first got it a few months ago.

My project for this week’s challenge is not my usual style and I almost broke out in hives I tell you! Lol!  I decided upon Night of Navy as the focal colour and worked around it from there!

I randomly stamped the lovely leaves from Vintage Leaves by Stampin’ Up! in Versamark ink onto a Night of Navy card front and then covered them using Copper embossing powder and heat set. Them. I added a strip of Mint Macaron and Copper Foil paper across the middle and placed some Mint Macaron leaves also heat embossed with copper embossing powder over the top. I decided not to put a sentiment on this card yet as I’m not sure whether it will be a Thank You card or birthday card. What do you think it should be?

Well that’s it from me. Please do pop across to the Create with Connie & Mary challenge blog and see what the very talented design team have come up with. You won’t be disappointed. And why don’t you join us this week? We’d love to see what you come up with for the challenge so please do give it a go.!

Vintage Leaves from Stampin’ Up! – CASology Cue Card Challenge

An autumnal greetings card using Vintage Leaves from Stampin’ Up! for the CASology Cue Card Challenge – YOU (week 168).

I finally gave in and ordered Vintage Leaves from Stampin’ Up! It’s one of the stamp sets I’ve loved and looked at a lot, and then moved on without ever ordering, but when I was ordering the Lighthearted Leaves set from the Autumn/Winter catalogue I decided it would be a good idea to get the Leaflets Framelits to cut them out. Well as the framelits come in a bundle with Vintage Leaves at a 15% discount, well you know how it goes …..Crafters Anonymous here I come! 🙂

I started by sponging a background from Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze, before over stamping the leaves randomly in Cajun Craze. The sentiment is from You’ve Got This, which I chose so I could enter the card in to the CASology Challenge Week 168 –  Cue Card You. It’s been a couple of months since I played along, due to a lack of organisation on my part. I actually made cards to enter but then missed the deadline a few times duh!

So what do you think? Still clean and simple right?
