Stamp Review Crew: Vintage Leaves Edition
Welcome again, to the Stamp Review Crew! This time we are featuring a beautiful autumn set, Vintage Leaves, and I can not wait to share the fun idea I had with this set! I am certain that all of the Crew have fabulous ways to use it :)

If this is your first time hopping with us, then I should tell you that we are an international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that gets together every first and third Monday of the month to feature a single stamp set. We share lots of ideas for that set to get you excited and inspired :) You can check out the master blog roll on our home blog, and find all of our past hops, and all of the links will take you directly to the posts you are looking for!

If you are following along in order, you just got here from Ann Schach's blog. Gorgeous, right?! And this is Ann's farewell hop, we will miss her but wish her well in all of the adventures in life she will be sharing with her hubby :)

By now, most of you know that I am very into watercolor this year, so I had to give it a try with this set. Let me tell you, I had some miserable failures, until I was selective about the areas I used the Aqua-painter o. By just adding touched here and there, it gave the leaves a soft and dew-touched look. I love it! And I wish that it had not been so blooming hot this weekend when I had planned to do my projects, lol! I just had no energy for anything until late Sunday night, with our temps in the 90's and humidity nearly 100%. And me with no air conditioning :) That makes me look forward to crisp autumn days even more! And they are a-comin'!

Now, it is time to go see what loveliness that Deb Currier has made!

What a great monochromatic card. I love the single leaf and the balance you created with the leaves. Beautiful!

Love the simplicity of this card with the subtle watercolouring.

The softness of the leaves on your stamped background plus the vellum gives your card a simple, but beautiful look. Love the stitching!

Great job filling the background with the leaf image... I am always horrible at that. Love the vellum sentiment over the top.
