Pastel Leaves

There are so darling A La Carte stamps at the back of the Holiday Mini – and I bought several! Leaves of a Tree is the set that I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it as soon as I saw it.  So here it is!

This is the Poppin Pastels technique.  Stamp the image in Versamark and then use a cotton ball, sponge dauber or sponge to “pounce” the Stampin Pastels onto the image.  It pops!  The Designer Series Paper is the new Spice Cake.  It has Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz in it (which aren’t in the Pastels) so I used Not Quite Navy and Garden Green as a coordinating colors. 

Stamp Sets – Leaves of a Tree, Hand Penned
card stock – Early Espresso textured, Spice Cake DSP, Very Vanilla, Garden Green
Ink – Versamark, Jet Black Stazon
Etc – Scallop Trim punch, 5/16, Jumbo Brads, Vanilla Seam Binding

  1. I love this single tree, and you made it look so easy to do. When I first saw it, I thought this is going to be difficult to color with markers. But you reminded me about the Poppin Pastel technique. Time to bring it back. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Never heard of this technique but really like the way it makes the image pop.

  3. Your poppin pastels look awesome, and I love that beautiful tree image!! Gorgeous card, Fran!!
