Lighthearted Leaves meets our Many Marvelous Markers!

Here is a great fall card using the large leaf in the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set.  This set coordinates with the Leaflets Framelits. 

Lighthearted_leaves_ampcThe set of Many Marvelous Markers was used to color in the leaf.  I love having our core colors at my fingertips, all 38 colors in our four color collections (except Whisper White and Very Vanilla) in one sturdy case. Bonus, there's extra space in the case for both sets of our In Color markers.

Measurements:
Crumb Cake: 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”
Early Espresso: 3” x 4-1/2”
Very Vanilla: 2-3/4” x 4”, 3-1/4" x 3-1/4"

Instructions:
1. Fold 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” piece of Crumb Cake cardstock in half to form card base. Create a crisp fold with the Bone Folder.
2. Stamp leaf image in Crumb Cake Ink around outer edges of the card base and attach the Early Espresso layer.
3. Clean the stamp and stamp the same leaf image in Early Espresso onto large Very Vanilla piece. Color with Cajun Craze; Crumb Cake; Perfect Plum & Crushed Curry Markers. Crop with the coordinating Framelit from the Leaflets Dies.
4. Stamp greeting in the lower right hand corner of the large Very Vanilla layer with the Early Espresso and attach to card.
5. Add die cut leaf image to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
6. Tie a small bow with the Gold cording Trim and attach to leaf stem with a Glue Dot.

*Die cut a quarter sheet of Mossy Meadow card stock with the Hexagon Hive Thinlit.  Save a few of the hexagons.
*Adhere the hive to a Mossy Meadow card base.
*Add a few of the hexagon pieces to it with Stampin' Dimensionals. (These pieces are the leftovers from the die cut hive)

Hexagon_card_dimension*Cut the large tag image from the Chalk Talk Framelits out of Crumb Cake.
*Stamp your images on the Chalk Talk Tag in Soft Suede ink, my greeting came from the Petite Pairs stamp set.
*Fold the ribbon up through the top of the tag and tie in place with the Linen Thread and attach the tag to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Here is an alternate project for you.  There are extra tags in this kit so I used four of them attached to a piece of Perfect Plum cardstock to create the background for my main image.  I took the little swirly stamp and stamped in numerous times around the edge of a 2" circle and stamped the small piece of candy in the center.   Added some snippets of Silver Cording Trim and sequins to finish it off.

LIghthearted Leaves and bleach

I received a card like this in a swap on my recent Founder's Circle Trip and thought it was so cool, I had to use it in my clubs last month.

Lighthearted_leaves_indigo_bleach

The card uses the NEW Lighthearted Leaves stamp set shown in the Holiday Catalog on page 44.  It coordinates with the Leaflets Framelits in the Annual Catalog on page 172.

I started by embossing my images with Black Embossing Powder.  Then I poured a bit of bleach in a glass jar and used an old Aqua Painter to apply the bleach where I wanted the card stock to lighten.  Super easy!!!

My wood Celebrate element was added to a strip of Corrugated Paper and I added some of the Gold Cord Trim to the back of the strip for some added interest.
