This is the first, and I think my favorite, of five card of leaves - got started and couldn't stop!

This one takes some experience - the vase of flowers is dry embossed on vellum using gold embossing powder. I used two shades of color for each flower (I used Marvy's, but colored pencils would probably work). I framed it with yellow cardstock with an oval punched out and used a border punch on the bottom edge. Added a piece of ribbon and some butterflies. All done. (P.S. I used the oval on the inside for my sentiment)

The card is brown polka dot cardstock; a tan vertical strip topped with a cream strip. The flowers are cut out from another piece of floral paper and attached to the white strip. I made a small "tag" for the sentiment (cream on tan) and punched a hole in each end to run a narrow cream ribbon through. The ribbon is simply taped to the card and the edges cut off evenly...

Easier than it looks - just use cotton balls to dab red and orange ink (from ink pads) onto a light-rust colored background, then stamp a tree (or trees) over it with black ink. Stick this to a slightly larger and darker piece of cardstock, tie a ribbon around it and affix your picture to your card - that's it!

Hawaii - love it! Also loved this paper which had strips of flowers looking very Hawaiian and had another piece with large Hibiscus (the state flower). Cut one out and attached to one side; finished up with Aloha and a Mai Tai...

Three co-ordinating papers were used here; one for background, one for the stripes, and one to back the bird, which is stamped with black ink on a dark gray-blue piece and cut out. The backing and the card itself are the same blue-gray...

Pick a stamp with only one long stemmed flower. Ink it using markers, then stamp it several times at various angles (each will be slightly lighter). Repeat with other colors. Tear around the edge of the cardstock, mount on a contrasting piece, also with  torn edges. Last, add a ribbon bow to "tie" the flowers together.

Very simple - just have to choose your colors - I used a fairly dark piece for the background and cut a light piece in the shape of a tag. Punch a hole in the top and use a small piece of ribbon. I used a label maker for the sentiment, but it could be stamped; then topped it off with the small flowers inked with markers...

This is the last one, and I think my favorite - love the background paper...
