French Foliage CASE

French Foliage is one of my favourite Stampin' Up sets as I love nature - especially leaves. My blog friend Vicky also loves this set and a couple of days ago made a gorgeous Christmas card using one of the leaf stamps and turning it into a Poinsettia - take a look here. Well - I e-mailed her straight away asking her if I could CASE her idea. She said yes so here it is

The leaf was stamped in red, coloured with a Stampin' Write marker and cut out. I actually cut out 20 and made 3 poinsettia flowers. The leaf was then stamped on the Very Vanilla card stock in green and 2 of the flowers were stuck down flat. The third flower in the left hand bottom corner was stuck down on 3D foam pads - small yellow gems were then added to the flower centres.

I found a new (new to me!) challenge blog so I would like to enter this card
Cards & Things Challenges - color challenge - Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Crumb Cake.

Thanks for looking and thank you Vicky for letting me use your idea - Jacqueline xx.


  1. Brilliant - that was a good idea to use that leaf stamp to make poinsettias wasn't it? (saw it earlier in the week)

  2. Gorgeous!... nothing less.

    I'll have to buy that set. :D

  3. Oh, I loved that card, too!!!! SO FAB--and yours is fabulous, as well!!! :)

  4. Wow! I knew you'd do something spectacular Jacqueline and you certainly have. I love the way one of your poinsettias overlaps the main panel and the layering is so effective. Vx
