Three Beautiful Ways To Use Leaf Dies {See What's New from Impression Obsession!}

Every autumn I get really excited about fall leaves. Mind you, I live in Florida, and we don't really GET actual fall leaves around here. But I am always ready to craft with fall leaves - and paper leaves are even better because they don't need to be raked out of the yard! Today's cards feature THREE different ways to use the sweet new Simple Leaves dies from Impression Obsession. So before you LEAF . . .let's take a look!

The Simple Leaves die set is perfectly sized - not too big, and not too small. Use a couple leaves, or cover the whole card in them!  To create this card, die cut a bunch of leaves, add some simple inking to them, and then attach them to a card base. I popped a couple of them up on foam squares for added dimension around the pretty stamped sentiment. (Also new from IO.) 

Here's a TIP: Make simple, flat embellishments with a hole punch and cardstock. I used two sizes of hole punches to make some quick polka dots to scatter on this card. 
Next up, same leaves and same sentiment but a totally different look. Using the same basic supplies, it was quick and easy to whip up this card using what was already on my desk. I'm always a fan of making TWO projects with the supplies that are already out. And last but not least. . .how about one more?
For a different spin, after die-cutting the leaves, I ran them through my machine again with an embossing folder. Such a fun way to add texture to the leaves. Add a little inking to really bring out the pattern. 

Whether you're creating table decor for Thanksgiving, making handmade cards for the season, or working on some scrapbook layouts, you'll love the Simple Leaves dies! And if you loved today's cards, stay tuned because TOMORROW I have two more leafy fall cards to share!
