Stitched Leaves In Color

Hello – and welcome back to another edition of the Monthly International Blog Highlights Gallery!  Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all around the world are participating in a little friendly competition to earn your votes…and the top 10 vote-getters will participate in a special blog hop of their own later in the month.

​Here’s my entry:

This is from one of my first purchases from the August-December Mini Catalogue that starts today…the Lots of Leaves Bundle (p. 49).  The watercolour-effect stamps that go with these dies are great, but for this card I wanted to highlight one of my favourite aspects of these dies: the stitched outline OUTSIDE the die-cut.  I used 2 of the 2020-22 In Colors, Bumblebee & Cinnamon Cider, and 1 of the 2019-21 In Colors, Terracotta Tile.  The sentiment, from Boho Indigo, is stamped in Early Espresso.

Here’s how you can vote for me: click on button below and scroll down to entry #19, which should look like the photo on this post.  Click on the TOP, RIGHT CORNER and make the HEART TURN RED.  You should get a notice that you have 4 votes left.  You are welcome to vote for 4 more entries that catch your eye, or to close the window.​ 


Voting opens Tuesday, 4 August at 8 am AEST. If this link doesn’t work, check back later. Thanks!
