Autumn Leaves

This is my third post today - don't miss my Pink Poppies or my Tooth Fairy Box!

Today is the first day of Sweet Peeks over at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, and this month we're building up to a HUGE announcement!  Want a hint?  Well, I'm not going to give it to you!  HA :)  You'll just have to stay tuned, check the Sweet 'n Sassy blog and Facebook page, and follow along on Twitter everyday until the 15th to see what the fuss is all about!

My card today uses the soon-to-be-released set Autumn Leaves.  I am so in love with this set I can't stand it!  I'm so ready for earlier sunsets, cooler weather, football,  and everything else that comes with autumn.  I also shared this card for my weekly tip over on the Sweet 'n Sassy Connection. This week it's all about repeating images.

To make the background strip behind the squares, I lined four post-it notes up (two for the top, two for the bottom), stamped my leaf image randomly onto my card stock, and then sponged more ink on top.  When I removed the post-it notes, I was left with a darker strip on the base!  On either side of the sentiment I added embossed lines using my Scor Buddy.

Here's a little glimpse at another image from the Autumn Leaves set.  For more inspiration, head over to the Sweet 'n Sassy blog to check out what the other Divas are sharing!

Don't forget about my weekly blog candy! Check the Stampendous Saturday post for details :)

Beautiful fall card, Taylor! I'm really impressed how you managed to line all of those leaves up exactly matching the angles! Shouldn't surprise me, though!
