One-Layer Wednesday 162 ~ Leaves

Monday, October 21, 2013

This week, Heather is hosting our One-Layer Wednesday challenge (OLW 162).  Her challenge, leaves.  I have a feeling Heather was probably thinking fall leaves, right? 

In an ongoing effort to use stamps (that have never seen ink before), each week I pull a set or two and display them prominently on my worktable to use. This morning, as I was thinking about the OLW challenge, I saw leaves on my worktable!  Okay, so they were holly leave, but leaves all the same.

These leaves are from a Close to My Heart set (A Holiday A1115), my MIL gave me. 

I made three different OLW cards.  All very similar, but a bit different.  With the first card, I though the little pom-poms would make cute berries.

With my second card, I wanted to use sequins to bling it up a bit. A girl has to be trendy whenever possible, right?

And with my third card I just used stamps.  No bling, just some twine.

All three cards are 4 1/4 square with matching envelopes made with We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. 

It's not often that I get really excited about a tool, but the Envelope Punch Board is awesome if you like to make matching envelopes, or just use up your scraps.

Supplies: Stamps: Close To My Heart - A Holiday  Ink: Papertrey - Pure Poppy, New Leaf, Simply Chartreuse and Memento - Tuxedo Black  Paper: Papertrey - White (Card Base), Envelopes - Paper Studios   Accessories: We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board & Twine.  


  1. Thanks Cheryl! You just gave me an idea for completing this OLW challenge. I'm going to work on it immediately!

  2. Nice to see different ways to use similar stamps. I ordered the envelope board awhile ago. Can't wait to get it.

  3. Great cards using your holly leaf stamp. :) Thx for showing the three variations of the leaves. Wonder if I have any red sequins?

  4. I love all of these cards. They're sweet and simple - just the way holiday cards SHOULD be so you can get a lot made in a short amount of time!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
