Substitution for gelatine leaves in a buttermilk mousse

I have a recipe for buttermilk mousse that I want to try. It calls for gelatine leaves, which I don't have and would rather not buy for one dish. Can I soften powdered gelatin in the cream or buttermilk instead, and if so, how much powdered gelatin equals a sheet of gelatine?

Also..he said one envelope will softly set 3 cups of liquid or firmly sets 2 cuos.

David Lebovitz says one envelope gelatin = 3.5 sheets. His sheets are 3x5 inch.
