This Stitched Leaves Mini Kit is so much fun to work with!  Fall is my favorite season, and these delicately veined and patterned leaves are absolutely fabulous.  I immediately fell in love with the maple leaf and knew I needed to make them fun and colorful and just as happy as the colorful fall maple leaves in my backyard make me!    I used Distress Oxide inks with hot press watercolor paper to create a whole page from which I die cut a colorful pile of leaves to create with.  The very short Youtube video of my colored leaves process and the rest of the seven cards I created with them is linked here: 






I used the Metallic Copper cardstock for my word die, and added a bit of Tomato Soup sponging and a piece of burlap for texture on this one.



This was stamped with the Distress Oxide ink on my Charcoal Brown cardbase.  Look how rich and shiny it appears on Gina's dark cardstock!  I used a strip of the inked paper to decorated this simple card.  

I love this clean and simple card created by mixing the circle frame and sentiment from Give Thanks.  The Give Thanks set was included in last fall's Painted Autumn StampTV kit.  Look how fabulously it works with the new Stitched Leaves mini kit.  That leaf fits within that circle so perfectly I'd swear Gina planned it!  

The rest of my Stitched Leaves maple leaf cards are shown in the video above.
