Thinking Of You- Fun Leaves with a Sketch and Color Challenge :-)

Hi Again Stampers!

Here is another card that I created last night using some of my retired stamps along with Gorgeous Grunge for the Pals Paper Arts PPA219 Color Challenge as well as the Friday Mashup! FM177 Special Guest Challenge.

Again, if you have not had a chance to check out both sites yet, I would encourage you to do so- great inspiration from all (including Heidi’s 7 year old daughter at The Friday Mashup! created the sketch- love it so I just had to "Mash It Up" this week :-))!!

To create this card:

Using the Embossing Buddy®, de-static a piece of Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Whisper White cardstock.

Ink the Magnificent Maple leaf using Versamark™ ink and stamp onto the Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Always Artichoke cardstock.  Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.  

Ink the Off the Grid stamp along with the sentiment using Versamark™ ink and stamp onto the Whisper White cardstock.   Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.  

Stamp the Gorgeous Grunge images using Classic Ink- Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry.  Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Always Artichoke card base.

Carefully “fussy cut” each leaf out around the embossed image- mount onto the card front to finish off the card.

Another quick and simple project!

Stamp Sets: Gorgeous Grunge (current), Magnificent Maple, Off the Grid, All Year Cheer I (all retired)

Ink: Versamark™, Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry

This is just beautiful, Julie! Love the gold embossing on your leaves and all the background stamping you've done too. Thanks for mashing it up with us this week at the Friday Mashup.

Julie, your card is simply beautiful. The gold embossing on the three different coloured cardstocks gives a subtle difference to each leaf. I didn't buy the Magnificent Maple Leaf stamp when it was available and now I regret it. The detail is spectacular. I wish that SU! hadn't retired that Grid stamp. It certainly makes a statement and is handy for the background.
