Lighthearted Leaves- Happy Birthday with a Color, Sketch and Theme Challenge :-)

Hello Friends!

This card was created using the brand new stamp set, Lighthearted Leaves for the Create with Connie and Mary CCMC370 Color Challenge along with the Seize the Birthday 082715 Challenge and the Splitcoaststampers’ SC518 Sketch Challenge.

If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites yet, again, I would encourage you to do so- wonderful Design Team samples and inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Use the Embossing Buddy® to de-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock, ink the Lighthearted Leaves image using Versamark™ Ink and stamp onto the prepared piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder and use the Heat Tool to heat set the powder.

Color the image using Pool Party and Watermelon Wonder Stampin’ Write Markers. Once the coloring is finished, use a Sponge Dauber to apply Pool Party and Watermelon Wonder Classic Ink around the edges of the leaf and add a few white highlights using the Chalk Marker.

Ink the smaller leaf image using Watermelon Wonder Classic Ink and stamp around the edges.

Trim the panel, mount onto Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto Basic Black cardstock.

Stamp the sentiment from Butterfly Basics using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto the Watermelon  Wonder card base.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Pool Party cardstock, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.

Mount the embossed Pool Party panel to the card front and add the looped Silver Cord.
Add the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add a few Rhinestones to finish off the card.
