OSAT Blog Hop Turning a New Leaf August 2021 With Stampin' Up! Love of Leaves and Stitched Leaves Dies


Hi There!  It's hard to believe it's already the 2nd Thursday in August and of course the 2nd Thursday means it's time for another One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop!  This month's theme is Turning a New Leaf so all of our projects this month should involve leaves.  If you've already been hopping, thanks so much for continuing on.  If you are starting at my blog, please make sure that you check out all of the amazing inspiration from the other blogs on the hop!  

I decided to use the Love of Leaves stamp set and coordinating Stitched Leaves Die Set from the Annual Catalog for my Leaves.  

I loved using the dies for the leaves with the gorgeous Sale-a-bration Peaceful Prints DSP Real Red and Black plaids!  

I adore Buffalo Plaid so this beautiful SAB DSP really called out to me!  I started out with a top folding 11" x 4-1/4" Real Red Card Base, scored at 5-1/2" on the 11" side.  The front panel of plaid DSP was cut 3-3/4" x 5" and was matted in Basic Black that measured 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" and adhered to the card base.  The largest of the Stitched Leaves was cut in the beautiful Buffalo Plaid DSP and popped up on the card base with Dimensionals.  The sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set was heat embossed in White on a 3-1/4" x 1/4" Basic  Black Strip of Cardstock and added  with a Mini Dimensional on the outer ends of the strip so that it was level over the leaf.  I added some Black Baker's Twine to the stem tied in a bow and finished off the outside with three of the Black Matt Dot Embellishments.  

The inside Basic White Panel was 3-3/4" x 5" and matted with Basic Black measuring 3-7/8" x 5-1/8".  The inside sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  i cut three additional leaves in the Buffalo Plaid DSP and adhered to the inside right side, cutting one of the leaves in half and adding each half separately.  

The coordinating tag/bookmark was cut using the Tailor Made Tag Dies using both the Basic Black and Buffalo Plaid DSP.  I added the "hello" sentiment form the Love of Leaves stamp set heat embossed in White on the bottom of the Black tag.  I added a Real Red Leaf over the Buffalo Plaid Tag and used some of the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon and more of the Black Baker's Twine tied in a bow over the ribbon to finish the tag off.
