Autumn Leaves

It is getting to be autumn here. The pistachio trees are starting to turn their amazing bright colors and the liquid amber trees are just getting color on the tip-top of them. They inspired me to make this card.The focal image is one of the Cloisonne Cameo stamps from Michael Strong. The leaves are all stamped with his Cloisonne Circle and die cut using Sizzix and Cuttlebug leaves. The stamps were white embossed and colored with Distress inks.

I thought it would be fun to see the circles with the leaves cut out. Of course you can die cut the plain paper and then stamp. I just did it the other way on these.
