My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party- Day 2!

Hello, my sweet friends! I hope you're having a beautiful day! Welcome to Day 2 of the My Craft Spot stamp release party! :o)

Today we are featuring the NEW Fall Leaves stamp set! How I adore the sentiments on this set... so much beauty, in word and font. :o) (All of the new stamps and metal die sets will be available for purchase on Saturday!)

I made an Autumn criss-cross card to showcase a couple of sentiments and a stunning new metal die. :o) It is for the upcoming Thanksgiving recipient of the cherished I Feel the Love Project.
I love the whimsical touches to the fonts in this set. It reminds me of leaves fluttering in the crisp breeze. :o) Many sentiments, like this one on the front of my card, are year-round sentiments. It is important to express and encourage thankfulness all year long and Fall Leaves does it beautifully.

Isn't this border exquisite?! It is the NEW Fall Border metal die and I love it to bits!
I used various distress inks to make my leaves appear to be changing colors and then covered them in Clear Rock Candy crackle paint. These dies are truly beautiful. I love the sweet embossing on the acorns, too. :o) 
The card insert features one of my favorite Fall Leaves sentiments. I bordered it with a stamp from the Build A Birthday set.
My Copic-colored cutie is Apple Blossom by Elisabeth Bell for this card. The pretty trim along the panels are from the Fancy Edges 2 metal die set. The wide Autumn ribbon is from my stash, which I layered with Harvest Wine crinkle ribbon. Machine stitching and a variety of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers complete the front.
I am so grateful to be slowly returning to coloring! I need to take it easy on my still-recovering arm, but it felt amazing to play with my Copics again. Apple Blossom and my sentiments are layered with Spellbinders Gold Labels 4 and the coordinating Labels 4. All of the beautiful papers are from Maja Designs' Walking in the Forest.
