Stamp Review Crew: Love of Leaves


The Stamp Review Crew is featuring Love of Leaves today.  The possibilities with this stamp set and coordinating dies are endless.  Our leaves here are no longer bright and colorful on the trees,  They are mottled and crumpled on the ground - ready to be raked on the next sunny day!  To get that look I stamped a clear block on an ink pad, spritzed it with water then used that as an ink source for my stamp.  I love the finished look!  I also love the die cuts that emboss so I used the small one with my sentiment.

It was a very cold Halloween yesterday but we had fun.  The Big Guy's gizmo worked perfectly to send the candy out to a basket on the sidewalk.  Emma had a great time sliding the candy!  Here we are during set up time....

Ready for trick or treaters!

I hope you came here from my friend Heidi Baks' blog - she rocks!  If not check her out!

Next in line is the wonderful Cindy Elam!

So pretty! Love the plaid background and the watercolored leaves! Sweet candy dispenser too! One of our neighbors had a similar setup...the kids loved it!! :)

Linda - these remind me of the leaves I collected as a child. We’d place them between sheets of wax paper and iron them. The colors would mute in some places and intensify in others - just like your beautiful creation.

OH for the love of leaves, Linda! Yours, atop this fabulous plaid, are ready for the art gallery, my friend!
Kudos to the Big Guy - looks like his gizmo worked the charm!
The kiddos, and those pumpkins are just the perfect treat!

Oh my goodness, I LOVE the colors you chose for the leaves, AND the technique, to boot!

Love to see a unique take on inking up these stamps. And so much creativity with passing-out Halloween candy too! I love it!!

I thought of the gizmo when I saw the trick or treaters here, glad it worked well! Thanks for the pic of your lovely decorations too!
As for the card - you had me at hello! The leaves look great.
