Counting Blessings Stamp of Approval Blog Hop Day 2: Fallen Leaves

Share This!


By the look of all the comments yesterday, you all are loving this collection as much as we do!

With this collection, we are Counting Blessings and I count the Design Team among my blessings. We work for months on creating these coordinating products and when the blog hops begin and I get to see all their amazing creations, it's a bit like Christmas for me!  (no, I don't see many of their projects before you do!!!!)  The DT knocked it out of the park, didn't they?

Thank you for hopping along and leaving comments for all the designers, it really warms our hearts to read them!

Fallen Leaves 2

In this video, I'll make two cards and show you more possibilities with the Leaf Motifs Stamp Set.

We'll take a look at:

  • Leaf Motifs Stamp Set
  • Tags, Etc. Die
  • Fallen Leaves Die
  • GeoTrio Stencil
  • Good Things Stamp Set


Fallen Leaves

I love this color combo and the contrast between the watercolor and the black die cut leaves!

Fallen Leaves 3

These two cards are similar with a dark card base, the scallop rectangle card layer and the Leaf Motifs Stamp Set stamped on the layer….but they look so different, don't they?

I had so much fun stamping these leaves, I can't wait to head back to my stamp table and make more!

    Yahoo! Lovin’ the leaves. I see “FAIRY SKIRTS!”

  • Ishani August 14, 2017, 9:30 am

    I remember the last hop here and I was as awestruck with the beautiful inks. Do you put some magic potion in it? How are they so vibrant!!? Lovely and so pretty the cards are. Hoping around for more inspiration!

  • PattiB August 14, 2017, 9:30 am

  • Sher August 14, 2017, 5:37 pm

    Hi Catherine,
    I have commented on every blog today and don’t know that they all took. For some reason it kept popping out when I would select my ID. I tried Wordpress, tried blogspot and it wouldn’t accept that, and tried Google which I don’t like to use. It was frustrating as I really liked the posts and wanted people to know what a great job they did. I don’t know why we have to do the ID thing. It was frustrating not knowing if the comments took or not. I hate complaining and I thought you should know what happened.

  • Erm S August 14, 2017, 5:43 pm

    My favorite is the first card as it’s so vibrant. But…the other two are great colors. Love the aqua and green. Can’t wait to try these stamps.

    I love this box! I feel very fortunate that I am able to budget in purchasing the SOA every quarter. I typically do not comment on the blog hop, because I hope the winner is someone who may not have that financial luxury; however, this morning was a bit crazy and when I went to purchase, it was SOLD OUT! The blog hop is my last chance at owning one of these boxes…fingers crossed…I’ve owned every one from the beginning.
