Starting out with Winter Fox by Heather Nichols and Text and Texture: Wood Slices by Betsy Veldman! This little fox is so. dang. cute. I was so excited to work with him! I blended a couple different colors together to get the red I really wanted for his fur and I love how he turned out.

I chose to create the wood slices in Soft Stone on Soft Stone for a really subtle texture in the back. It’s a little more prominent in person but still very soft. 🙂 And those greys… Weathervane ya’ll!

Next up is an interesting combination of a brand new sympathy stamp set called Sending You Comfort by Kimberly Crawford… and a new window die for the previously released Hinged Gift Card Box called Christmas Window, by Lizzie Jones.

I decided to create a card with these combos and I’m showcasing the “So Very Merry” sentiment die from Lizzie’s set. The other die says “From Santa” and is SO CUTE!!! You will love both of these. They will look adorable on tags too!!! Not just cards and gift boxes! So definitely don’t write this one off if you don’t have the coordinating box die yet.

Seasonal Borders + Shape Shifters + Words to Live By + Text & Texture

It’s day 3 of Papertrey Ink’s August release and today we have some lovely Autumn themed products for you. 🙂

Starting off I have a card featuring predominantly fall themed products, but I wanted to show you a way to use them a little bit different so you don’t feel like you only can use them one season per year!

I went with a monochromatic color scheme using greys and blacks for my leaves on the card base. The shape shifters is so beautiful, but I wanted to show it off in a way that doesn’t create a focal point so I left it all white and accented my sentiment with a big pop of color. And of course… a little twine to finish it off… you know me. 😉

The next Text and Texture from Betsy Veldman is, Leaves! She did such a beautiful job designing a background stamp that almost creates a rubbing feel. I used a couple different greens on my background and kept the front of my card nice and simple.

Thanks for stopping by! Much love all.

My first project is showcasing Betsy Veldman’s new sets… Geode Layer Dies and Text and Texture Agate stamps. This particular card was so fun to put together because my sweet daughter LOVES collecting “special” rocks. We can’t take this girl anywhere without her finding something cool on the ground and her begging to take it home to wash it. She’s just the cutest.

My color inspiration came from this image I found on Pinterest…

I used little bits from the Shaker and Sprinkles kit to create the crystals in the center. 🙂

My next project is showing off the latest from Lizzie Jones… her monthly Glorious Globes April as well as Sentiment Staples Congratulations.

I took this set in a bit of a different direction this time by turning one of the circles into a floral focal point. It’s accents are created with Circle Scribbles dies and Doodlie Do coordinating dies.
