Lighthearted Leaves Card: #tgifc19

TGIF friends! I hope you play along with us at TGIF Challenges this week. There were only 5 entries last week, that makes me sad. We want you to play along with us! We LOVE to see what you create! This is the challenge we are working with this week:
I think colour challenges are the easiest, so it's a perfect time to join us. This week I added a few more colours to the mix and made a watercoloured (shocker) autumn leaf.
The new Lighthearted Leaves stamp set from the NEW Stampin' Up! 2015 Holiday Catalogue is so so pretty. The leaves are delicate and full of detail. I embossed this one with white embossing powder and then watercoloured the different sections using Daffodil Delight, Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, and Calypso Coral Inks. 
I think it looks perfect paired with the new Woodland Embossing Folder
Don't forget to come and play along with us at TGIF Challenges. I can't wait to see what you create!

I hope your Friday is as fabulous as you are!

Happy Stampin'

  1. Allison, I absolutely LOVE this card! I caught your sneaky peaky over on IG and had to come over here and see the full project! I love the clean & crisp modern approach to this card. I have just added the Lighthearted Leaves and Leaflets Framelits to my "must order ASAP" list! Thanks for the inspriation - Jennifer @ OneCraftySister

  2. Wow Allison! I was seriously stumped on how you created that leaf as it looks so perfectly detailed & colored, super gorgeous!

  3. What a lovely card Allison! I love how the water coloring technique softened the colors.

  4. it's a beautiful card....I don't have the mini leaf set but I do have the framelits and the more traditional leaf set from the big book so may give this card a try. Is it my imagination or is there an oval punch out somewhere along the bottom right corner under the leaf?'s a GREAT card and I will enjoy case'ing it!

  5. Gorgeous! I love how you have the intricately colored leaf combined with the lighter background.
