Fresh Vintage Leaves

Hi there!

I've been busy prepping for an upcoming class featuring the Vintage Leaves stamp set & matching dies from Stampin Up and I decided to combine a couple of challenges to help inspire me. I combined the Freshly Made Sketch with the colours from the Paper Players...

I wanted to try out a background technique idea that I'd had going round in my head and seeing as this sketch showed off quite a bit of the background, I thought it would be perfect...

This focuses on tone-on-tone stamping and is pretty simple in the end, but I rather like the outcome - perfect for a guy (and I'm often asked for thank you cards for men!).

Thanks for stopping by...

  1. Amy what a beautiful card! I love the blocks of colour and the way that you created your background panel with the inset leaves - very creative. Thanks for playing along with my colour challenge over at The Paper Players this week!

  2. Gorgeous card! I love the background! And those beautiful colorful leaves really POP against the tone on tone!

  3. I love these colors together! And I love the background you've created. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  4. Amy, I LOVE your card.....especially the creative background. Would you mind sharing how you did it?
    Thank you.

  5. Very pretty card. Love the colors used.

  6. Amy this is lovely and I had looked at that colour challenge and couldn't imagine myslef being able to make those colours work well together. You have done such a lovely card I think now maybe I should give it another look! thanks for the inspiration.

  7. Amy, your card is gorgeous! I love the tone on tone stamping and the colorful leaves just pop off the card! SO happy you joined us at The Paper Players this week! XX
