Lovely Leaves

I was playing around with Papertrey Ink's Lovely Leaves...I had pretty much settled on a layout that seemed to "work" for the leaves, but decided to switch up the colors (outlines, leaves, berries) and make some cards with some different "looks and feels".  I'm starting with the last one...I had a perfect sentiment for the layout  and thought a rainbow look would be fun:
 I masked the other leaves with scotch tape while I stamped each color, and after having all the colors stamped, dotted with black Enamel Accents.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Up Up and Away sentiments.  The colors I used: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun, Lucky Limeade, Marina Mist.
This was the first one I made...certainly celery and dotted with Buttercup Liquid Pearls.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
Same thing, but dotted with pink Perfect Pearls.
This one I made the stem of leaves into a tree and added a ribbon.
 I tried a darker green, Old Olive, and colored the berries with Pumpkin Pie and dotted with Glossy Accents.  The sentiment is Papertrey Ink
This one I used Going Gray and dotted with Buttercup Perfect Pearls
 This one is gray dotte with Peacock Perfect the blue with the gray!  The sentiment is Papertrey Ink Script Sentiments.
This last one is not one layer....I was trying my hand at extending the stem on a scrap card and liked it so much I decided to use cut it down a bit and put it on a card.  Stamped in Basic Gray and stamped leaves in Marina Mist.  Dotted the leaves with black Enamel Accents.  The sentiment is from Mega Mixed Messages from Papertrey Ink...don't get to use this sentiment too often, but will be sending it to the hostess of the baby shower I went to last week...I spent most of the shower talking to her, we had the most wonderful time:)!!!!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  8. One stamp - so many cards. And each one unique in it's own way. I'm not much of a stamper but I just may have to invest in this one.
