I ordered the latest Stamp of Approval Box by Catherine Pooler and it 
arrived the other day. YAY!!!

Needless to say, I've been having tons of fun in my craft room this weekend.

For the tag, I sponged on some distress oxide inks and then stamped the leaf stamps with water to remove some of the ink. It has the effect of bleaching without the smell of the bleach. It's a great technique. Next I embossed the
sentiment with white embossing powder.

I made the background piece by stamping and sponging with distress oxide 
inks and the beautiful Leaf Motif set by CP Designs.

If you haven't heard of the Stamp of Approval Box yet you really should 
check it out. The products are all really well thought out, the quality is 
amazing and everything coordinates beautifully.
This one is probably my favorite box yet. It's fall themed and fall is my
favorite time of the year.

I can't wait to play some more.

Happy Stampin'
