Grateful Leaves Tag

As promised, another tag! My hubby says this is too detailed to be just a tag, that it should hang on a banner or something, so that you can use it all season. Wasn't that sweet of him?! It was another use of scraps from my scrap bins, and I thoroughly enjoyed creating it, even the fussy cutting :) I think if I could get away with it, I would probably use the Woodgrain background stamp on every project I ever create. I just get such a warm cozy feel from it! I live in a log house, we have two woodstoves to heat our home, and I grew up in a woodworking household, so it is "ingrained" in me! Get it? Ingrained! I know, I am so corny, but hey, this is my blog. I can be as corny as I want!

The more Mustard shape is actually from the Peekaboo Frames die, and I love that shape. You don't have to use the door :) I am so happy this leaf stamp set made it into the main catty. But I would not be surprised if it retires this year to make room for some other fantastic leaf stamp. They must know by now that I will buy every leaf and snowflake stamp that Stampin' Up! creates. I just cannot help myself! 
I used my blender pen to color the leaves with More Mustard and Cajun Craz and there is still a little bit of Champagne Shimmer Paint on my blender pen from a previous use and it added a touch of shimmer to the leaves that is just perfect in its subtlety. I did not manage to catch it with my camera though.

Very, very pretty. It would make a great bookmark, especially marking the place of a special, fall recipe. :)
