Big Leaves

ETA:  I added ink colors and steps in the card supply list below - just in case you wanted to try them out! :)

It's Monday again already!  I actually love Mondays these days because it's the day we get to see all the beautiful work from the Kitchen Sink Stamps Crew!! :)  Today I have 2 cards for you - both using the new set Multi-Step Big Leaves.  Now I used it today to make some pretty Fall-inspired cards but the great thing about this set is that it goes beyond Fall!  I can't wait to try out the beautiful fern leaf on some projects!

For the first card I used 2 of the leaves to make a random background layer.  We're having Thanksgiving at my house this year and I think I'll make cards similar to this for invitations - better get going though huh??! :)   It was so much fun playing with different color combinations for my leaves!!

Cardstock:  Orange Zest, Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate (Papertrey Ink), Patterned Paper:  Autumn Blessings (Papertrey Ink), Stamps: Multi-Step Big Leaves, Multi-Step Harvest, Ink: Orange Leaf: Step 1: Cantelope, Step 2: Tangelo (Memento), Step 3: Orange Zest (Papertrey Ink), Yellow Leaf: Step 1: Dandelion (Memento), Step 2: Cantelope (Memento), Step 3: Orange Zest (Papertrey Ink), Red Leaf:  Step 1: Lady Bug Red (Memento), Step 2: Rhubarb Stalk (Memento), Step 3: Potter's Clay (Memento), Dark Red Leaf: Step 1: Lady Bug Red, Step 2: Rhubarb Stalk, (Memento) Step 3: Bravo Burgundy (SU!) Brown Leaf: Step 1: Dessert Sand (Memento), Step 2: Potter's Clay (Memento), Step 3: Close To Cocoa (SU!) Accessories:  Nestabilities, Twine, Ribbon, Button (Papertrey Ink), Corner Rounder punch

This next card uses FTL#68 from Clean & Simple Stamping.  The first two leaves are from Multi-Step Big Leaves, the third, the maple leaf, is from Multi-Step Autumn Squirrel.  I've seen some pretty cards lately using a varegated color scheme so I gave it a try here - going from the lighter color (Summer Sun), to Orange Zest to Riding Hood Red - so festive don't you think?!  The sentiment didn't photograph well, but I embossed it using gold embossing powder (to pick up the gold brad) and then added a scored line on either side for some ooomph!

The sentiment is from Multi-Step Harvest - love those two fonts!!
