The Stamp Review Crew features Lighthearted Leaves

SRC-Lighthearted-Leaves-banWelcome to the next stop on The Stamp Review Crew’s Lighthearted Leaves tour! You probably already know from past posts that I love this set. I guess its main intended use is for Thanksgiving/fall however being in Australia, we don’t have Thanksgiving and at the moment it’s almost summer!

Part of my (frugal) mission in life is to use craft supplies for more than their intended use. It’s always great to get more out of our investments, right? With that in mind, I set about making a different kind of card…

Previously I’ve declared that a man card is the most difficult card to make. I’ve decided to make an amendment to that. A man sympathy card has got to be the winner for most difficult card. Enter Lighthearted Leaves.

I needed to make a sympathy card for my Father-in-law following the passing of his dad. I thought that Lighthearted Leaves was appropriate in a neutral but uplifting kind of way.

I stamped in VersaMark for a subtle background, then watercoloured and fussy cut the leaves. Some burlap and striped cotton ribbon (swoon) were added and then I sewed on all of the elements.

I do like this card and actually think it would be suitable for many a man occasion card. A birthday or thank you perhaps?

Now it’s time to hop off to visit Tanya Boser for her Lighthearted Leaves inspiration.

  1. Congrats, Jess, on successfully making an amazing card in the most difficult category! Your gorgeous projects are the main reason I bought this set. Keep up the fabulous inspiration.

  2. Gorgeous card Jess! Such a perfect card for the occasion it is intended for. Love the fussy cutting and the stamping of the leaf image for the background layer. The little pops of blue stitching are perfect to finish it all off. Rochelle xo

  4. Oh, Jessica…this is great! I always love a really good masculine card…and I always appreciate someone who can do really well something I can’t do. Here, it’s the stamped background. Fabulous job…with the background and every other bit, too!
