I used the Magnificent Maple single stamp for my card share today.  My card design was inspired by The Paper Players Sketch Challenge #156 and the colors were inspired by the Dynamic Duos #63 Color Challenge.

Magnificent Maple

I started by stamping the sentiment from the A Dozen Thoughts stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Gingham Garden DSP.  I sprinkled the sentiment with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it, then adhered the panel to a panel of Pear Pizzazz card stock with SNAIL.  I adhered a smaller panel of Gingham Garden DSP to a panel of Garden Green card stock, then to the larger panel with SNAIL.  I used my Paper-Piercing Tool to place three Candy Dot Brad Bases through the layered panel and I added three Pear Pizzazz Candy Dots to the centers of the brads.

Magnificent Maple 1

I stamped the Magnificent Maple image in Garden Green on a Pear Pizzazz panel, then adhered the stamped panel with SNAIL to a panel of Garden Green card stock.  I finished the card by adhering the stamped leaf panel to the layered panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then adhering the layered panel to a Garden Green card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Magnificent Maple 2

I finished the inside of the card by stamping the leaf image again on a Whisper White panel.
