Love of Leaves Positive Inkers Global Blog Hop Sneak Peek

Welcome to our first Positive Inkers blog hop!  We are Stampin' Up! demonstrators from Canada, Australia, the Netherlands, United States, and UK.  

I'm so excited to be part of this global event and excited for you to see our Mini Catalogue Sneak Peek creative designs!

As I flipped through the pages of the Mini catalogue, I stopped when I saw the Love of Leaves Bundle.  I could picture the leaves in a variety of colours and groupings, a big plus when choosing stamp sets, and the sentiment fonts looked unique.  But wait....there's more

The dies - they are aaaaah-mazing!  No surprise, they cut out the leaves, but they also imprint the veining on the leaves!  Absolutely gorgeous and brilliant!

Colour Combo

I started with a base of Whisper White, then added a layer of paper from the Plaid Tidings DSP.  I know you're going to love all the pretty patterns and colours in this DSP - something for every season!  My next layer is Whisper White embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D folder.  You'll find all the measurements on my video (below).  

For the leaves, I used Pretty Peacock, Mango Melody and Crumb Cake inks.  I wanted a soft look so for each leaf I stamped off.  Next, I heat embossed the sentiment in White Stampin' Emboss Powder onto Pretty Peacock cardstock.  

Last step was to tie a double bow using the Gold Trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and adhere it using a rolled up Glue Dot.
