Now I would like to feature the Wonderfall Stamp Set and Bigz Die Set. Also the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. If you scroll down there will be a photo tutorial showing how to stamp these images after you die cut them.

I am really in love with the wood grain embossing folder. I took a sponge with some crumb cake ink and rubbed it over the paper after embossing to help the impression to stand out more.

When you die cut your leaves this is what you get.
Trying to get an even stamp using red rubber stamps that you cant see through might be tricky. 
So this is what I do.
Ink your stamp and lay it down like this

Next you want to take your leaf and line it up 
Notice how my stems are facing facing the same direction? When I go to lay my leaf down I start with lining up the stem first and then lay the rest.
 now you can press down and turn it over and press down the normal way.

And there you have it.

Another trick I like to do is crinkle my leaves up like the picture above. 
Stay turned for this finished project.
