Lighthearted Leaves Spotlight on the Holiday Catalog

I absolutely LOVE the new Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog!  Today I had a little time to finally play with one of the new sets that I received on my preorder.  I used a couple of techniques and had lots of fun getting inky on this one!

First of all, let me say one thing.. Where has Pumpkin Pie Cardstock been all my life??  I just got my first pack of it today.  Yep.. I've had tons of Stampin' Up! Cardstock colors but never Pumpkin Pie!  It is such a yummy color!  I love Pumpkin anything so I should have known, right?  I mean Pumpkin Spice Latte is my all time favorite Starbucks drink so of course I would love Pumpkin Pie Cardstock. On this card I started with an A2 Yummy Pumpkin Pie Cardstock Card Base and layered in a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Old Olive Cardstock.  My top layer was Whisper White.  For the Masking Technique I used Post-It Notes to Mask the Top and Bottom Portions of the White Layer and stamped with different stamps from the Lighthearted Leaves Stamp Set using Old Olive, Hello Honey, and Cajun Craze.  I used a Pumpkin Pie Marker to color in some of the design on one of the more decorative leaf styles and add some of that yummy color! I stamped the sentiment in the lower right corner in Cajun Craze.   For my larger leaves, I used the Emboss Resist Technique.  I heat embossed in White three of the Lighthearted Leaves onto Shimmery White Cardstock.  I then used my daubers to sponge in Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Hello Honey, and Old Olive Ink onto the Leaves and then cut them out with the new Leaflet Framelits. Let me just say that if you have never sponged on the Shimmery White Cardstock, what are you waiting for??  It goes on so smoothly and has such a luscious shimmer!   I used a paper towel to rub down the white embossing after sponging so that the white wouldn't have ink residue on it.  I tied three of the leaves together with some of the Linen Thread and then popped them up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
