Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Thinking Of You Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings cling stamp set is one of the prettiest leaf stamp sets ever. This maple leaf with seeds is so graceful and wonderfully shaded. And I love the sentiments! I used it with the pretty Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder for a simple thinking of you card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a Very Vanilla panel with the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder and adhered it to an Early Espresso mat. I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Pumpkin Pie card base with dimensionals.

I inked up the large leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings stamp set with Pumpkin Pie ink and used a sponge dauber to apply Cajun Craze ink around the edge of the leaf. I used another sponge dauber to apply Parakeet Party ink to the stem and stamped the leaf on Very Vanilla. I used my paper snips to fussy cut around the leaf. I adhered the leaf to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings stamp set in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla. I used the large label die from the Waves dies to cut the sentiment using a two step die cutting technique (cut half the label, move the die to the other half and cut the other half). I looped some Sahara Sand ribbon through the label and adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I finished the card with an amber gem.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the seed from the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings stamp set in Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Parakeet Party on a Very Vanilla panel using the same sponge dauber technique to ink the stamp. I embossed a strip of Pumpkin Pie card stock with the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

There are so many beautiful card made with the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings stamp set. I love the cards made using the Joseph’s Coat technique and the baby wipe technique. It’s so versatile and I’m planning to play with this beautiful stamp set some more.

  1. Akiko, this is so subtle and pretty. I really like what you did with the sentiment die and ribbon.

  2. Beautiful!!! I love this card! I don’t think my fussy cutting skills could handle those stems though.
