For my card today, I wanted to focus on the leafs of this stamp set. By now, everyone recognizes the flowers from this set, but have you given much attention to the leafs? Leafs dominate this stamp set and they are actually quite beautiful. I love the shape of them and the layered detail stamp that coordinates with each one.
The colours I used for this card are Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, and Whisper White.
The detailed leaf of my card is the large, bold leaf from the set. I stamped it onto Whisper White cardstock with Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz, and Old Olive Ink. I applied each ink colour onto the actually stamp itself, with sponge daubers. First: Mint Macaron to the edges of the leaf. Second: Pear Pizzazz to the center, making sure to over lap the edges of the Mint Macaron ink. Third and Last: Old Olive to the center, making sure to blend it out into the Pear Pizzazz ink. Then I stamped it. Once it was dry, I stamped the detail lines in Old Olive.
I used the coordinating Botanical Building Framelits to cut the large leaf out of Crumb Cake cardstock. To add a little dimension to my card, I popped it up with some stampin' dimensionals and layered it on top of my stamped image.
On my Mint Macaron card base, I stamped the medium leaf in Mint Macaron ink, 2nd generation, (I stamped off first, before stamping it onto the base) and added a strip of washi tape from the Affectionately Yours Washi Tape Pack. My greeting was created with the Sunshine Sayings Bundle.
Thanks for hopping in, I hope you enjoyed my sample with the Botanical Blooms stamp set. Up Next, is the Talented Mike Funke's Blog. Enjoy the rest of the hop and happy creating!
