More Falling Leaves

Today I have a couple of bonus cards for your fall inspiration.  I posted a card in yesterday's post for the Impression Obsession Falling Leaves Challenge.  As I mentioned in that post, I did some 'second generation' stamping of the background leaf stamp on a couple of other panels of card stock.  I also created some watercolor smooshing backgrounds with distress inks using the same colors.  

Today's cards feature those panels and backgrounds.....

 Card 1:

Impression Obsession stamps/dies links:
Stitch Tag DIE874-Y 

Branch DIE007-L
Fancy Leaves C224 stamp

I inked and stamped the Fancy Leaves stamp as described in my previous post HERE onto ivory card stock, then mounted that onto an A2 card front.   
I cut the Branch from the Stitch Tag die, then from a piece of card stock onto which I 'smooshed' distress inks in the same colors as my background.

I inserted the positive of the Branch die into the negative I cut from the tag.  I added a strip of the original background paper along the left edge of the tag, tied a ribbon which I had dyed with distress inks, and used foam tape to give it dimension on the card.

Card 2:

Stitch Tag DIE874-Y 
Branch DIE007-L
Fancy Leaves C224 stamp
Hugs DIE516-A 

This card is assembled the same as above, only I used the watercolor background for the tag, and the ivory for the branch.
