A New Toy!

Boy I love when I get knew toys! I just can't wait to get it home to see what I can do with it.
With the cooler weather, I have been aching to put together a fall card with some leaves.
I haven't been playing with my stamps too much recently, so I decided to get them out and see what i could do.

The stamp set I used is called Four leaves Solid by Close to my Heart. It has a great Maple Leaf that is perfect for fall cards.  I stamped the background using Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I punched out the leaves and used the same distress ink on the edge of the leaves.

The tag is from Spellbinders called Back to Basics. That set has some great tags! Added a greeting and a brad and that was it. A pretty quick, simple card. My mind is already racing with all the wonderful creations I can make using this new punch. Should be fun!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Items I used:
Ranger Ink - Inkssentials - Ink Blending Tool - For Ink Application and BlendingFiskars - 12 Inch Personal Paper Trimmer with Cut-Line - Blade Style IFiskars - Intricate Shape Punch - Autumn Flair
