Less Is More Challenge no. 41
Hello Stampers...hope your weekend was a good one.
At Less Is More, the divas have given us lots of inspiration with leaves. I love leaves as much as I do flowers. Often a leaf can be more beautiful than the flower it is with. And I have plenty of leaf stamps. For this card, I reached way back into my stamp days to create a wreath using Rubber Stamp Tapestry Lily Fern Paradise. These are tiny peg stamps that come in sets of leaves and flowers. This set contained several leaf pegs. The idea for this card is from Tami White of Stampin' Up fame.
Tami's tutes are fun and simple to learn. Go check her out. The link takes you directly to her tute page.
I used Rangers Distress ink in pine needles to stamp, with the stamping off technique, and then dotted berries on with a Viva pearl pen. Aren't they nice and shiny? This stuff does not flatten out, unless you crush it. I have several other colors which will see much use during the holidays. The sentiment is from CTMH's Holiday Trinkits (ret.), stamped in Colorbox warm red chalk ink. The card base is SU's whisper white and is an A2 size.
This card could take on many different effects according to the leaf shape stamped, but they do need to be small leaves, unless, of course, you make a larger sized card.
Hope you all enjoy the upcoming week. It's getting close....Christmas...not the opening day for Twilight (smile)!
