Gorgeous Leaves Bundle for Freshly Made Sketches

gorgeous leaves bundle 1

 My preorder for the 2021 July/December Mini Catalogue arrived on Friday and, of course, you know what I had to spend time doing this weekend - playing with my new toys! The first bundle I pulled out was the Gorgeous Leaves bundle, which includes the *Gorgeous Leaves cling stamp set and the *Intricate Leaves Dies. 

*These products are from the 2021 July - December Mini Catalogue and won't be available for sale until August 3, 2021.

I chose those because I wanted to play along with Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #493 and the leaves made the perfect diamond shapes for the bottom. Here's the challenge banner to check it out:

This card also contains lots of other intriguing new products from the July/Dec Mini Catalogue, which won't be available to the public until Aug. 3, 2021. It had to be moved a month forward due to unavailability of many of the products in the catalogue because of COVID shipping delays. But these products are definitely worth waiting for!!

  • On the Early Espresso card base is a very interesting background paper called the *Cork Specialty Paper. 
  • The strip on top of that is Crumb Cake embossed with a new 3D embossing folder called *Timeworn Type. After embossing it, it has been sponged with Soft Suede ink to bring up the embossed features better. Then the edges are distressed and torn to add to the timeworn look.
  • Across near the bottom of this strip  a piece of *Diamond Weave Ribbon has been added. It's really 100% cotton crochet trim in Very Vanilla.
  • Two different leaf images from the *Gorgeous Leaves stamp set were stamped on Very Vanilla. The maple leaf was inked in Cajun Craze and some Soft Suede was added to the stamp with a sponge dauber before it was stamped. The smaller poplar leave was inked in Crushed Curry and some Cherry Cobbler was daubed on before it was stamped. Two of these images were stamped.
  • These images were die cut with coordinating dies from the *Intricate Leaves Dies and mounted on the card front using glue dots for the small leaves and Stampin' Dimensionals for the Maple Leaf.
  • The sentiment is from the Quiet Meadows stamp set in the Annual Catalogue and it was die cut with the Tasteful Labels dies, also from the AC.
  • *Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots add a finishing touch as an embellishment.
*These products are from the 2021 July - December Mini Catalogue and won't be available for sale until August 3, 2021.

There were many more exciting products in my preorder which I will be using in the coming days and you can see me do a kind of "unboxing" in my Monday Morning Facebook Live video replay here:
