Lighthearted Leaves


Coloring and the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set go together perfectly!  Just add a dash of glitter to make a beautiful card for the Thanksgiving Day Holiday.

Color Combo 9

To make the card, start with a pumpkin pie card base of 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″.  Cut a piece of very vanilla cardstock to 5 1/4″ x 4″ and rough the edges up with a sanding block or edge distresser tool.  Stamp all the leave images from the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set on to the very vanilla cardstock using early espresso ink.  Color the leaves in fun patterns using the Stampin’ UP! markers in real red, pumpkin pie, early espresso and garden green.

Attach the very vanilla layer to the card front using snail adhesive.  On a scrap of very vanilla, stamp the Thankful greeting from the Six Sayings stamp set in Versamark ink.  Sprinkle heat and stick powder on the versa mark image and melt with your heat gun.  Sprinkle the  gold glitter over the melted sentiment and heat set again.  Fussy cut the thankful sentiment out with paper snips and adhere to card with dimensionals. Using the fine tip glue pen, make small dots of glue randomly around card front and sprinkle with gold glitter.

leaves1For the inside of the card, cut a piece of very vanilla to 5 1/4″ x 4″.  Stamp the Emily Bronte quote from the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set in early espresso ink.  Stamp the small tree image in the lower corner using early espresso ink and color with the Stampin’ UP! marker colors used on the front of the card. Adhere to the inside of the card with snail adhesive.

Hope you enjoy making the card! Thanks for visiting today.
