Hello! Back with another set of cards!
I never realized until now how versatile leaf stamps can be – until I made these two cards, that is –
The inspiration for this card is the image from the latest Pinterest Inspired Challenge.
For making the card, I selected the leaf stamps from Avery Elle Laurels to make a vine-like look, with the grey colored leaves forming the backdrop for the blue ones. So, I first make an outline for stamping (that would mark the height/base of each vine) and started stamping. For the greys, I chose Memento London Fog and Memento Grey Flannel and for the blues, I chose Tumbled Glass and Broken China distress inks and Memento Danube Blue. I misted them quite before stamping. After everything was dry, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then trimmed the panel using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles die, but I didn’t like the white behind it, so I ended up stamping the background the same way. 😛 But in the end, I love how it looks! 😀
For my second card, I wanted to try making something with leaves and the color pink –
This time, I first stamped the sentiment from Paper Smooches Bold Buzzwords in Memento Tuxedo Black and then stamped the leaves – I picked the largest leaf from Avery Elle Petals & Stems. I stamped the leaf using Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet and Picked Raspberry distress inks. I also stamped the same with and off-set and heat embossed it with some clear sparkling embossing powder. That’s it! Clean and simple. I just didn’t want to add anything more to it! 😀
