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!

    This blog hop showcases your new box beautifully, but even more than that, the ladies have done a wonderful job showing off your beautiful inks!

  • Cassie D August 16, 2017, 9:39 am

    Loving this collection! The ink colors in the cards above look beautiful too!

    Love how well the inks work with the new stamps!

  • Rose August 16, 2017, 11:26 am

    I love how all your cards turned out. The first one is my favorite, but they are all very pretty. All the leaf motifs will be perfect for fall cards.

  • Helen Gullett August 16, 2017, 12:43 pm

    Catherine, your cards are gorgeous and fabulous. LOVE that watercolored one for sure. Thank you so much for continue inspiring us with your projects.

    You guys rock! Love every you do. Just bummed that I couldn’t order till later on the 16th. But know I can order it later on the next coming year I hope at least. I still have lots of great things to play with anyways. Can’t wait for the holiday box

  • Erin M August 16, 2017, 4:45 pm

    I am IN LOVE with the colors on these cards. Gorgeous!!!

  • Tammi P August 16, 2017, 5:12 pm

    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.

  • Diane M August 16, 2017, 5:22 pm

    Another set of winners!

  • Rosanna H August 16, 2017, 5:32 pm

    Wonderful ideas shared with using this collection. I was really looking forward to purchasing but was on a plane when link came out and by the time i could sign on, it was sold out. So bummed.

    Love this collection. So many ways to use, holiday or not.

  • Jinni Herring August 17, 2017, 3:04 pm

    Probably too late to be in it to win it but hey I love the freshness, the clean lines and the impression of simplicity in the way you guys stamp. I also love the vibrancy of colour in your inks so just ordered some to try myself!
