Vintage Leaves with subtle colour palette

I think my Mojo was beginning to return for this one. I’ve noticed that a lot of my favourite samples – particularly those created by German demonstrators – use a very limited colour palette and our new Thick Whisper White cardstock is the perfect product for this look. 

Here I’ve stamped and die-cut a leaf from vellum, which I’ve very loosely backed with Whisper White cardstock (I ran a thin line of Tombow adhesive down the leaf’s stem on the back of the vellum). 

I’ve added some subtle dots with the splatter stamp from Awesomely Artistic and created a frame using the doodle stamp from Tin of Cards.  The greeting comes from this set, too – and, because it’s Photopolymer, you can assemble the two separate words on the block before stamping, so you can be sure to get the images nice and straight. 


  1. Ooh I like this one.... I'm loving the colours.

    1. Thanks, Sue - it's a gorgeous stamp set

  2. This is gorgeous and a fabulously creative way to use the stamps! I've just ordered this set so I'll have to give this a go! x


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
