Love of Leaves
Welcome back, my friends! I had to laugh when I saw my friend Jackie’s post the other day. It was so very like a card I designed for my November classes. I hadn’t seen Jackie’s card when I designed mine, and I know she didn’t see mine, because I hadn’t posted it yet. Great minds, right? She and Susan are forever using the same stamp set or idea for our challenges, so it was fun to be on the same wave length for once!
Here’s the card I designed for classes. Actually, it’s two cards.
Jackie and I used the same Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the same dies for our cards. You can see her card here.
For my first card, I die-cut the leaf from Poppy Parade Carstock using the Stitched Leaves Dies. I cut three 1-1/4″ x 5″ strips of the Pattern Party DSP (FREE with a $150 order/party) and added them to a Basic White Thick Cardstock card base. I stamped the sentiment from the coordinating Love of Leaves Stamp Set using Misty Moonlight Classic Ink on the bottom piece of DSP, then added the negative die-cut to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels for a little bling. Easy!
The second card is exactly like the first, except I used the actual die-cut instead of the negative. I left a space between the three pieces of DSP on the first card, but I really like the second, where there is no space between the DSP pieces.
Except for the use of dies, this is a very simple stamping card, and it’s great for beginners. It’s also a nice quick card for more advanced stampers too.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
