Stampin Up “Vintage Leaves” Holly Leaves Card

Happy Stampers Blog Hop:


Hi Stampers, it is Thursday again, is time going fast or what?  Time for anther blog hop on this December day. Today was a sketch challenge, see the sketch below and then visit our teams blogs to see how we all created a card using the same sketch.


Here is the sketch: 


Stampin Up “Vintage Leaves” turns into holly:


After using the Vintage Leaves stamp set this past fall, I thought to myself, the oak leave could pass as  holly leaves for Christmas.  So, I thought I would give it a try with this card for the blog hop.  If I do say so myself,  I think the oak leaves do a pretty good job of turning into holly.  It makes me happy when we can get more use from our stamps than just one season.  This set is proving to be very versatile.

The Sentiment was inked using the Holly Jolly Greeting stamps set with versa mark ink and then heat set with gold embossing powder.  I added a few gold sequins around the card for the third touch of gold.  I like to repeat color for good balance.

      Hi Mary, what I did on this card was put a glue dot on the last sequin, that hold all the sequins on the strand. Hope that helps

    Such an ingenious idea with the leaves. It is a beautiful card-wow, I love how you added the gold to the leaves and the sequin bling is awesome!
