Lighthearted Leaves again

Oh, the more I use this Lighthearted Leaves set, the more I really like it!  For my Create with Connie and Mary October Mini Session 3D project, I used Vintage Leaves and the Leaflet Framelits…but it would look equally as fun with the Lighthearted Leaves and Leaflet Framelits!  I love that the Framelits fit BOTH sets!  Now, remember, you need to be a subscriber to see my Create project…and we release the October Mini Session on October 11th…so don’t miss out!  You can see a snippet of my project here, along with the others for this month.  It really is fun to make!

Sign up today over on Create with Connie and Mary!


I also used Lighthearted Leaves again for today’s blog card!  I just couldn’t resist!  We have LOTS of October birthdays in our family, so this one is for my mom who turns 80 this coming weekend!


Lighthearted Leaves


Here are the details!

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Old Olive.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White, the Lighthearted Leaves were stamped with Old Olive and Hello Honey Inks and the greeting from Watercolor Wishes with Chocolate Chip Ink.
  • A 3/4 x 4 band of Tangelo Twist cardstock is added across the front…with a 1/4″ x 4″ strip of Metallic Gold Cardstock in the center.
  • The small leaf was stamped with Tangelo Twist Ink on Crumb Cake, then cut with the Leaflet Framelits.  Some of the fun details were “painted” with White Craft Ink and a Blender Pen…gives you lots of control on where it is painted.  The leaf is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Gold Cording is tied in a bow and added to the stem with a Mini Glue Dot.
  • For a little extra bling, some Gold Sequins were glued to the front of the card.

I know she’ll really like it…hope she doesn’t peek at my blog before her birthday!
