Magnificent Maple meets Baby Wipe

First, let me just say... I love a leaf stamp! They are so versatile, for any age, gender or occasion. We used "Magnificent Maple" (from the Holiday Catalogue) in this month's Stamp-a-Stack Class:

I wanted a mottled, autumn-toned leaf, so I made my own temporary "inkpad", using a folded baby wipe. I just dotted it with ink refills in Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip and Sahara Sand, and then used it to ink up my stamp. The colours start off quite intense and then soften as you stamp more images (the top right card was my first stamping).
I've used "Sweater Weather" DSP on these, and a dash of Gorgeous Grunge in the background, and punched the leaves out with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch.

....I think these are my favourite Stamp-a-Stacks of this year.
