Video – Lighthearted Leaves Coloring Card Kit

coloring kit 1 with markastampin-up-lighthearted-leaves-500x500Coloring books for adults are the new latest craze in the craft industry. Parade magazine recently featured a front page article on them. Barnes & Noble had a HUGE collection in their front foyer today. Those coloring pages came to mind when I first laid eyes on Stampin’ Up!’s new Lighthearted Leaves stamp set.

My project and video today is a Coloring Card Kit made with Lighthearted Leaves that I presented at the World Card Making Day event this past weekend.

Wouldn’t these make a GREAT gift?

Please note the following:

  • While I used a plastic crayon box with the final card size being 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″, another option for the box is Stampin’ Up!s Half Wide Stamp Case #127552. The final card size for that box would be 3″ x 4-1/2″.
  • The Real Red 3/8″ Satin Woven Ribbon #135840 is on the Clearance Rack for only $2.79! Just $2.79!!!
  • Photopolymer stamps like this one come sandwiched between two plastic sheets. The unprinted plastic sheet can be used as the window sheet.

A video tutorial for how to use the Envelope Punch Board can be found here. The instructions for the envelope board begin at 6:00 of the video.

  1. Amy, this is such a great idea! I love, love, love it, as you would say.
    This may sound like a silly question, but how do you cut the pencils in half? I would love to make this gift for some friends and I too love the lighthearted leaves set!!
