Red Rubber Designs Monthly Blog Hop



It's first Thursday at Red Rubber Designs!! What does that mean? Well, it means new stamps are being released, the Design Team will be featuring one stamp for their projects, and a blog hop with a contest!
The DT is featuring stamping from this Every Leaf set - -which, honestly, is like one of my most favorites leaf stamps ever. (As you can see on my first project where I went a little nuts stamping and cutting it out.) My actual construction details are at the bottom of this post.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
On to the Blog Hop contest details:
Each blog on the hop (except the Red Rubber Designs Blog) has one word that will complete a phrase somewhere in their blog hop post. Once you find all six words (that's a hint!) put them together to form a phrase. You may have to rearrange them a little bit!
Note: The word you need from each blog will be obvious if you read carefully.... it looks just a little different from the rest of the letters!
Once you figure it out, email the phrase to contest@RedRubberDesigns.com and be sure to put your name and email address in the email with the phrase. Every correct answer will be entered into a drawing for the featured stamp set - "Every Leaf" - and one winner will be chosen at random. Good luck! Contest ends Sunday, July 8th at Midnight (US-CDT)

As I said, there's new stamps being released at RRD. You can check them all out HERE.

The details for my projects are as follows:
Wreath: I stamped my leaf on kraft construction paper various times in different colors of Palette inks. I cut the leaves out and added glitter to the edges. I then created my tag by adding layers of color to the tag itself before stamping my leaf onto it. I added this wonderful fall quote that comes with the One Leaf set onto kraft paper and attached it to the metal frame.
A little ribbon and acorn charm were attached to the top.
The final step was to create a wreath with all the leaves I had cut out by arranging them around my tag.
Card: This time I stamped my leaf on grungeboard (you can use heavy cardstock or chipboard). I added color to it with markers and then cut it out.
I stamped my quote on green cardstock. I then cut out an oval opening to go over the quote and attached two brads from the Juliette Hardware as well as some ribbon from the Cha Cha and Reese and Woodrowe ribbon sets. This panel was attached to my card with dimensionals.
