Leaf Stamp Sets for Fall - Part 1

Stampin'UP! has 3 Leaf Stamp Sets to choose from and they are all Drop dead GORGEOUS!
Today's post features: French Foliage, which has 3 natural looking leaves and 3 additional stamps that can be used as background elements.

This first sample has the 3 leaves stamped randomly to mimic the way my yard looks after all the tree leaves have fallen. I especially love the stamp that gives the "splotches". It really adds to the realism of this image set.

For the second card the leaf was stamped over one of the element stamps. I really like the look of the leaf on top the words. Notice the leaf is also in 2 colors to give it a more natural look. The leaf was inked with More Mustard and then Cajun Craze was sponged around the edge of the stamp before applying it to the paper.
The Card is stamped on Naturals White instead of Whisper White. The Naturals White looks more . . .  well it looks more natural. The whisper white was too intense and clean.
The border on the bottom was created with Stampin'UP!'s Lace Border Punch   The French Foliage stamp set is available in either wood(#120845) or clear mount(121166).
Here are 3 more samples from previous posts that use this same stamp set.
