Stampin Up “Vintage Leaves” Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Welcome to another Happy Stampers Bog Hop.  Todays card was a sketch challenge.  I used the vintage leaves stamp set and matching framelits for my card today.  Fall is in the air and this set is perfect for making so many different fall cards.11960226_1268896359803603_8583437756952711798_n[1]

Vintage Leaves Fall card:

Here is my interpretation of the sketch challenge.  I used several different fall colors on my art piece to mimic all the glorious shades from the maple trees in my yard this time of year. Stampin Up Vintage Leaves fall card by Kristi @

Here is the recipe:

Card base:  Very Vanilla, 5-1/2 by 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

Mat: Very Vanilla, 5-3/8 by 4-1/8 embossed with the woodgrain embossing folder

Mat: Old Olive, 5-3/8 by 2-1/4

Art Piece: Very Vanilla, 5-3/8 by 2

Sentiment Banner: Very Vanilla, 1/2 by 2-3/4

Large Banner: DSP from Into the Woods, 2 x 3

The Art Piece:

The art piece was inked and stamped using the Vintage Leaves Stampin Up stamp set.

Maple leaf: old olive

oak leaf: tangelo twist

long leaf: garden green

short pointy leaf: crushed curry

small round leaf: old olive

tiny round leaf: mossy meadow and crushed curry.

Adding Details:

I added some die cut leaves to coordinate with the art piece and add depth to the card. Green leaf: old olive sponged with old olive, Orange leaf: Tangelo Twist sponged with tangelo twist, Yellow leaf: crushed curry sponged with crushed curry.   I repeated the same process for the leaves in the upper left corner to accent the sentiment.

Finishing Touches:

The finishing touch was the gold metallic bakers twine that was wrapped around the banner and a double bow added for more details.  I could not stop at the bow, I needed to add some gold sequins with touches of pearls for the last element.  The gold sequins tie the color of  gold from the bow for that repetition of color and design.

    Kristi, your leaves are beautiful, and I especially love the elements of wood with the DSP banner and the Wood-grain TIEF. The Gold Baker’s Twine gives it just the right pop, too! Very nice!!
