Leaf Stamp Sets for Fall - Part 2

Stampin'UP! has 3 Leaf Stamp Sets to choose from and they are all Drop dead GORGEOUS!

Today's post features: Gently Falling This set was designed to showcase 2-step stamping. Notice how each image in this set appears twice: once as an outline of the shape and veins and a 2nd time as the filled-in part of the image.

The first card below shows how this set was intended to be used. We did this card at the November Stamp-a-Stack. We gold embossed the veins of the leaves and then overstamped with the matching "fill-in" shape.

We used the outline stamps with a Versamark Pad to make the background on Always Artichoke. The sentiment is from a Stamp Set called Short and Sweet. The other colors on this card are Very Vanilla and Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze.

This second card showcases another stamping technique called Thumping. Its a great way to distribute several colors on a stamp. This card was actually featured in an earlier post. And if you are interested in thumping check HERE.
