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!
