Oak Leaf Swag



Hi crafters!  The Oak Leaf Swag is on offer during this blog post.  The die set has two oak leaf  dies with swirls; both a left facing and a right facing for greater versatility.  These die cuts can easily be nipped in places for all sorts of uses.  Shown here, you can see how nicely they are as accents for your floral elements.  The leaves can also be cut away for use in the bushel basket.  Don't forget to use the "Pinit" button at the bottom of the post once you finish leaving your comments!  The penultimate post will be online at 3pm today.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue and everyone

Just gorgeous! Love the card, the colours are lovely. The oak leaf swag is definitely a favourite of mine. Great too that you have included a left and right facing one. You think of everything. It will look so elegant on lots of different cards.

Good afternoon, Sue!

What a beautiful sample! You sure know how to sell a bunch of great dies!

The Leaf Swag is just like the Holly one, which I love. And its leaves, when mixed with those of the Sycamore branch, would make a pretty convincing mixed bushel of leaves.

Thanks for the chance to win this! Going back to sleep now.

Love,
Donita

Jomada-Dawn said...

A very stylish leafy swirl (or swag, as you call it) - and the oak leaf is so distinctive. I look forward to seeing this in autumn colours. Just one thing missing and that's the acorn! Maybe you could do another die set, to have the acorn, the sycamore key, perhaps a fir cone, ooh, and some conkers peeking out of their prickly casings!! I love autumn!
