So my first card is focusing on the new Autumn Scarecrow stamps and dies. I’ve decided to forego the scarecrow for this card and simply show off the fall pumpkins and foliage. I used the Pink Paislee Cedar Lane Collection for a couple pattern papers to help me accent the new Big Bitty: True Black cardstock at the top of the card.

And to add a bit more of a Halloween/Autumn feel, I used the new Mix & Mat: Pinked Edges die as a way to give the bottom of this card a fun design detail.

My second card is all sorts of country feeling and it’s reminding me of my days growing up in Georgia. πŸ™‚

The mixture of the light blue bow and the corn felt almost like a county fair or fall festival to me. All the happy feels… πŸ™‚

Eeeeeek! It’s almost shopping time!! How are you all loving this month’s Papertrey release?? Today I am showcasing the new Too Hot To Handle Stamp and Die set that is soooo cute!!!!!

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink August 2017 Too Hot To Handle

My first card using this set is a seemingly one layer card with a bit of a pop from the rolling pin. Wrapping the pin in the black and white twine instead of a typical wrapped bow is an unexpected twist. πŸ™‚

My next card is all about texture.

I wanted to achieve a card with a bit of a fun flair and also a homegrown feel. The different textures from the Herringbone die and the heart doily add a lot of interest, but keeping the color palette to a minimum keeps it from getting too busy.

And finally, I just couldn’t resist adding in some Chicken Scratch paper. πŸ™‚

I overlapped some sentiment stamping and hung my die cuts from twine, but the most unexpected twist on this card is the super subtle braided string wrapped among the card.
