Leaf Branch and Polka Dots

I made four simply done cards with the pretty new Simon Says Stamp's Leaf Branch Oval die from their latest release, Cheer and Joy!  I made cards for  different seasons and occasions, combining the die with different designed and colored polka dotted papers(I have been LOVING polka dotted paper for backgrounds, of late!!)...
This first one, I die cut and layered the leaves then added Tonic drops that I had squirted onto acetate, let dry, then picked off with my exacto knife and adhered to the leaves.  I used a sentiment from the new Simon Holiday Greetings Mix 1.  Here's a close up...
The second one, with more of a "Fall" feel, I made as a card of encouragement...
 I used water color cardstock to paint the leaves, and used a sentiment stamp from a Simon Tiny Words stamp set.  Here's a close up... 

The third one, I used the leaves from the die, added a stamped and hand cut flower to make a thank you card...
I stamped the flower with a light colored ink, colored the flower with markers, and then stamped the flower again with versamark and gold embossed.  I used a sentiment from another of the Simon Tiny Words stamp sets and embossed in gold.  The paper is from My Favorite Things (I love it, but sadly, think it may be discontinued.  Love the kraft with colored polka dots, these are a green like the leaves).  Here's a close up...
The last one, I left the leaves white, and combined them with two colors of  die cut pink flowers...
I dotted the flowers with Tonic drops and added a sentiment from the Simon Tiny Words Birthday.  Can you tell I love the Tiny Words stamp sets with this die??  I DO!!  The sentiment stamps from these sets fit perfectly with the cross bar!  Here's a close up...
I love dies like this, they have so many possibilities...
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
