Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Leaves Card - Blog Hop


   Thank you for joining us for our Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop!  We are so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop for ideas and creative inspiration.  We are a group of Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin' Up!® business and reach some goals we have set.  We really appreciate your support.

You may be starting here or have come from another blog - either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today.

This is my favorite Monday of the month on my blog since it's the Monday that I share my Customer Thank You Card of the month for Kylie's & Bruno's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop.  Monday's are also the day I typically share a masculine card, so my Thank You Cards are either something that can be given to anyone, or I create one more masculine and one more feminine.  I think this one is beautiful and great for anybody.  

Very Vanilla Thick Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Soft Succulent Cardstock ~ 3-1/2" x 5", 2-1/4" x 3-1/4" (*4)
Very Vanilla Cardstock (thick, or not) ~ 4-1/4" x 1"

  • Use So Saffron ink to stamp the large 'splatter' stamp all over the front of the card base.
  • Use Bumblebee ink to stamp the smaller 'splatter' stamp randomly on the front of the card base. 
  • Cut out four Soft Succulent leaves using the largest leaf from Intricate Leaves Dies.  It helps to put Adhesive Sheets on the back of the cardstock before cutting.  
  • Cut out a frame using two of the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  (The finished frame measures approx. 3-3/8" x 4-3/4"outside and 4" x 2-5/8" inside
  • Glue the frame centered on the front of the card
  • Using a Sponge Dauber, dab a light layer of Pumpkin Pie ink around the edges of one of the leaves.
  • Attach the leaves together, making sure to keep the one with added color on the top of the stack.  If you didn't use Adhesive Sheets when die cutting, use a small amount of Liquid Glue 
  • Once the four leaves are attached to each other, attach them to the center of the card. 
  • Stamp the sentiment on Very Vanilla CS with Pumpkin Pie ink.  Fussy cut, then attach it to the front of the card with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, as shown. 

For the inside of the card, use So Saffron to stamp the large 'splatter' in the bottom right corner.
Use one of the smaller dies to cut out a leaf (your choice), then add a touch Pumpkin Pie ink.
Attach the leaf to the inside of the card, over the splatter. 

Happy Stamping!

  1. This card is great for men and women and it's beautiful! Love the splatters. Thank you Judith for taking part in our Demonstrator Training Blog Hop this month!

  2. I love the use of a single focal leaf. Great job on the splattering technique, too. A stunning card.

  3. Pretty card Judith, love the textured stamping in the background x

  4. Pretty card, I love how the sentiment floats across the bottom - very effective!
