Thank You Leaves


What is happening to the weeks?  They are just flying by.  Slow down please! 

I have a little card to share with you today.  This is my weeks entry into LESS IS MORE which is to make a one layer card with leaves.  

I'm sending out a huge thank you to the ladies that came along to my workshop the other week.  It was fun to show off the new catalogue and demonstrate some of the new goodies that are in it.  (You can see the new catalogue yourself by clicking on the brochure in my side panel)

The stamp set I've used today is Paisley Petals.  There are 5 stamps in the set and in addition to this lovely leaf design there are beautiful intricate flowers and stems.  Perfect for colouring.  I was lucky enough to achieve the sales at my party to earn this set and the gorgeous designer papers that accompany it for free.  I think it's brilliant that demonstrators can also take advantage of the super offers and promotions that Stampin' Up! regularly put out.  You can see this particular offer in more detail if you Click Here or click on the picture on my side panel.  Don't be slow though as it has a time limit. 

I've kept my card very simple as it is only 3" by 3".   The base is Whisper White.  I used my Stampin' Write Markers to colour directly onto the stamp with the In Colours - Pear Pizzazz,  Peach Parfait and Poppy Parade.   I'm obviously still being influenced by last weeks challenge of red and orange!  Hee Hee.

I finished my card by stamping a sentiment in Pear Pizzazz from the Pocket Silhouettes set. 

This next card is not mine but I thought I would show it as it fits the one layer theme albeit it's not leaves but a whole tree.  My daughter who is 9 is super organised.  She does not get this from me!  She has started to make, (not her Christmas cards, they are already written!) but her Thank You cards for after Christmas.  This is the design she decided on once she had a play on some scrap paper.  She also picked her colours, Lucky Limeade and Wisteria Wonder, which are from the new set of In Colours.  The stamp set is Season of Joy.  Isn't she clever?  I just left her to it with a little hint that less is more! 


Thanks for taking the time to visit, it's always appreciated.  Have a wonderful Sunday. x

Edit:  Kelly suggested I also enter my card into Simply Stampin' Challenge which is Leafy for this week.  Thanks Kelly.
