I've been making a few more cards with leaves on them for the fall season. I stamped the backgrounds with various small leaf stamps with a Kaleidacolor ink pad called Autumn Leaves. The ink pad has 5 colors of ink to give a nice balance.
I have learned to stamp one stamp on background in 3 different areas, in the form of a triangle. Then, chose a second stamp and repeat the process. This gives a nice balance to the stamped image. The triangles aren't all the same and some images are partly off the paper. I allow the ink to dry before placing the stamped background in an embossing folder and running it through my Big Shot. Each background is a bit different, but they all have a similar appearance.
These 2 cards were embellished with Spellbinders dies. The sentiment is a die cut with a Cuttlebug die. The tag is also a Spellbinders die.
