Lighthearted Leaves for FMS210

October 29, 2015 2 Comments

I’m a ProCraftinator!  In both the literal and figurative sense.  Literally as that’s the name of my team – ProCraftinators.  Figuratively because sometimes I use my creating to keep from doing something I’m finding a little distateful – i.e. I just don’t want to do it.  Take yesterday for instance, I spent the afternoon arm knitting an infinity scarf.  What I needed to do was some organizing and cleaning – no fun in that!  And, I justified the making of the scarf as a “research” project 🙂  I bet you’d even like to see the results of my research before we move on to my Lighthearted Leaves card.

Well….ok

Scarf made by theartfulinker.com

My daughter tells me it’s cute.  I’m not sure.  I may have to take it apart and do it again.  FYI – though the videos say 20 minutes, it takes a bit more than that for us novices.  But, it’s really easy.

Now for my card using Lighthearted Leaves and the FMS210 sketch.

My colors for this card were Mossy Meadow, Cherry Cobbler and Gold.  The base of the card is Mossy Meadow followed by a layer of Cherry Cobbler and then the Very Vanilla focal layer.  Both the Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla were sized to create very narrow borders of the lower layer colors.

This little leaf made me think of a Christmas ornament.

The squares with the leaves are like card candy.  You could make up a load of these and use them for love note sized cards or tags.

Anyway, the squares begin with a Cherry Cobbler mat.  Then, I added a layer of Gold Glimmer paper using dimensionals.  That little bit of lift makes the squares more appealing.

To bring a little more glitz into the card, I embossed the sentiment in gold.

The leaves were inked in Versamark and Mossy Meadow and then clear embossed.  This allowed me to color the leaves without causing the Mossy Meadow ink to run.  I used a Blender Pen to transfer color to the larger part of the leaves and a Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker to color in the petals.  The Blender Pen allowed me to achieve a watercolor like effect.

Both the leaves and sentiment were finished with Basic Pearls.

    Your card is beautiful! I love the touches of gold glitter and the gold embossing, and the cherry cobbler and mossy meadow are so pretty together. Both the card and the scarf are wonderful examples of your talent. (I really like the scarf, too!). Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
