International Highlights Winners Blog Hop-Layering Leaves

Spread the love

I’m very excited to be participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Highlights Top 10 Winners Blog Hop this month! Thanks so much to everyone that voted for my card in the International Blog Highlights. It is an honor to be included in this group of talented designers from around the world! This Cheerful Daisies card won me a spot in this Blog Hop. Click here to see full directions on how to make the card.

Today’s card features the Layering Leaves stamp set. It is one of the first sets I purchased from the new annual catalog because of its versatility and the fabulous greetings and font. The color palette was inspired by one of my favorite Talbots spring sweaters! The pink flowers were calling out Bubble Bath and I also selected Blueberry Bushel, Boho Blue and Orchid Oasis.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut piece of Blueberry Bushel cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut piece of Bubble Bath cardstock at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and adhere to card front.
  • Stamp seven large leaves as follows: two Boho Blue tone on tone; two Orchid Oasis tone on tone, two Boho Blue stamped with Boho Blue ink on Basic White cardstock; one Orchid Oasis stamped with Orchid Oasis ink on Basic White cardstock. Punch out with the Boughs Punch.
  • Stamp five of the smaller leaves with Bubble Bath tone on tone and punch them out.
  • Punch out three large vellum leaves and three small vellum leaves.
  • Punch Blueberry Bushel circle with the Decorative Circle punch. Stamp greeting with Versamark ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder. The embossing powder is one in a set of three basic Stampin’ Emboss Powders.
  • Arrange the leaves on a piece of Basic White cardstock cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Adhere the vellum leaves first with either a few dots of liquid glue or glue dots. I placed two large leaves at the top and one at the bottom, two small leaves at the middle left side and one at the middle right side. Adhere four large stamped leaves at the top and three at the bottom. Adhere two pink leaves at the top and three at the bottom.
  • Using the speckles stamp, fill in some of the white space around the leaves by lightly stamping with Bubble Bath ink . Adhere piece to the card front.
  • Adhere the embossed greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals in the middle of the leaf arrangement. Embellish with a few Blueberry Bushel gems from the Tinsel Gem Four-Pack.
