Create five unique looks with these techniques featuring the Falling Leaves Die Set! Given more time, I am sure I would have been able to discover even more ways to use this fun set!
Cut the leaves from a Red panel to make a paper stencil.
Apply a variety of ink colors through the openings of the paper stencil onto an Ivory text weight panel with Ink Applicator Brushes. Spritz the panel with water creating a mottled texture on the stenciled images.
Paper Stencil Impressions
Spritz the inked paper stencil with water to reactivate the Distress Inks.
Lay a piece of Ivory text weight paper over the wet stencil. Rub firmly to transfer the colors. Set aside to dry.
Apply Distress and Distress Oxide Inks onto an Ivory text weight panel. Die cut the leaves, making sure they align with the colored areas. Spritz water droplets onto the leaves to create a mottled appearance. Remove any access droplets with a soft cloth or set aside to air dry.
Stipple Mists Pressed Background
Lay a paper stencil into a spray tray (aka Club Scrap pizza box.) Optional: Crumple the stencil for added texture. Spritz generously with Burnt Umber, Leaf, Cherry, and Sunflower Stipple Mists.
Sandwich the wet stencil between Ivory text weight and mixed media panels. Press the layers together with an embossing machine.

Drop Shadow Die Cuts
Die cut leaves from Brown paper. Adhere the leaves slightly offset below the Distressed leaves to create a shadow
Build a 6x6" wall hanging with the backgrounds and die
Let's take a look at the completed artwork.
Bonus Idea - Washi Tape Die Cuts
Align strips of washi tape side by side on a piece of white paper. Die-cut the leaves from the washi tape paper.
Special thanks to Cathy Gray for sharing this idea on the Club Scrap Facebook Chat Group. Her gorgeous cards featured the Die Set paired with the Falling Leaves Leaf Washi Tape. I loved the look she achieved on her cards.
