Lighthearted Leaves 2.0

I still have the nasty cough, but I’m feeling better today.

Yesterday, I promised to post a “stepped up” version of the Lighthearted Leaves card we made in Stamp Club this month.

One of the products I wanted to use in class was the chalk marker.  Just a small touch here and there, can add so much to your project, and it really looks pretty on any color of cardstock (CS).

Unfortunately, one of the two markers I ordered for class was damaged when it arrived.  One thing I LOVE about Stampin’ Up! is how dedicated they are to fixing any problems with their products.  They sent me a new marker right away, but I didn’t have it in time for class.

With 28 people coming to Stamp Club this month, I wasn’t sure how long the one marker would last, so in class, we only added a little bit of the chalk marker to the leaf we cut out.  Here’s the picture from the Stamp Club card (see yesterday’s post for details).


And here’s the stepped up version.

Can you see the difference?  I added more detail to the leaves with the chalk marker, and added a black CS layer between the Soft Suede card base and the Crumb Cake panel.

What do you think?  Which one do you like best?

If you need any of the supplies used in these cards (see yesterday’s post for details), please visit my online store by clicking on the shopping basket.  If you’re in the Fort Knox/Elizabethtown, Kentucky area, I’d like to meet you.  And, if you don’t have one, I’d love to be your demonstrator.

Until next time……stay inky, my friends!
