JAI #170: Just Add Leaves


Time for another Just Add Ink challenge!

This week Christine has challenged us to add leaves to our projects. I had a bit of a brain fart and panicked about not having any leaf stamps, quite forgetting about French Foliage and Lovely As A Tree sitting on my shelf! Ooops!  I ended up using the leaf punchies from my Bird Builder Punch on my card.

In the end I was quite pleased with my forgetfulness as I really like this card!  To get the perfect circle I punched a circle from Very Vanilla with my 2 1/2 Circle punch and then adhered the leaves around the edge.

It looked a little plain so I used my Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to add some berryish looking highlights to the wreath.  I loved the final effect,

I had a few leaves left over so I used them on the inside of the card.

Stamps: Snow Swirled, Sassy Salutations
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive
Other: Bird Builder Punch, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon, Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details

So what leaves do you have hiding in your stash that you could use on a project?  See you over at Just Add Ink.

Bye for now,



  1. Tina what a great idea to use your circle punch to make sure that your circle was perfect! This is a beautiful Christmas card :)

  2. Tina this is lovely and very striking Christmas card. I love those little glittery pops of red and the punched leaf wreath has so much texture! xxx
