Handmade Fall Card Ideas - Day 5 of 5!

Sadly, we're on the last day of Handmade Fall Card Ideas series.  On a high note though, I have 3 lovely cards for you today using fall leaves.  I really love the Leaflets Framelits Dies and coordinating Vintage Leaves stamp set.  I'm using these in my classes this month, so I'll show that when we've had our final class with it.

This first card is from Crew Stamper Vicky Collins.  Vicky used lots of sponging to great effect with this wonderful fall card.  I love how she stamped the card front with the Hardwood background stamp, die cut the leaf and used the negative of the die to showcase her focal point.  The scene was stamped on another layer, then mounted on the card.  All the dark sponging makes it pop.  Love it!

Here's a close up to show the depth of the layers. 

 Our next card is from Crew Stamper Cathy Holman.  I can always tell it's Cathy's card because she's diligent about stamping not only the front, but the inside and back of the card.  She goes all out to make sure getting a card from her is a full experience.  Cathy used great fall colors in her card.  She stamped and heat embossed all the leaves before die cutting, then also used some Gorgeous Grunge images for texture.  This is her card front.

The inside is a fun pop up card with lots of great words and elements.  Still sticking with the fall color scheme established on the front of the card.  

Here's the back of the card with the always beautiful Sheltering Tree stamp set.  Great job Cathy!
Our last card today is from Crew Stamper Janet Hathcoat.  Janet stamped and die cut her fall leaves for this card and also used the Hardwood background stamp.  Isn't it amazing how three people can use the same supplies but get completely different looks?  Love it!  I also love the bit of Burlap Ribbon and Linen Thread added with some Gold Glimmer paper for a little more texture.
