Falling Leaves

I love the new single stamps in the mini!  A great way for new people to try out stamping.  Here is a card I made using one of them.
Stamp: Leaves of a Tree 123843
CS: Naturals Ivory 101849,
More Mustard 100946, &
Cajun Craze 119684
DSP: Spice Cake 124003
Classic Stampin' Pad:
Soft Suede 115657

More Mustard 100076 &

Punch: Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border 119275
Big Shot 113439

On this card I wanted to show how you can stamp the image in Soft Suede and then using the blender pen you can remove the ink from the stamp from certain leaves.  I then used the markers to color in the two other colors.  I really love this DSP and especially the piece I used on this card!
Hope you enjoy this card!
