This first card was created with products from the limited edition All Aboard Christmas kit, as well as a slimline die from Becca Feeken's Hemstitch Slimline die collection. I die cut pink cardstock from the kit with the largest slimline die from the Hemstitch collection. I pulled out some of the die cuts from the kit, as well as those fun foam stickers. I layered up the trees and the ornaments on the card front then added the foam stickers. Super simple and easy to put together!
With this card I'm switching to fall! I absolutely love pumpkins and so I couldn't resist creating with the super cute Open House Pumpkin Topiary etched dies from the Fall Traditions collection. This set is designed to work perfectly with all the Open House dies. I decided to show how lovely this die set looks all on its own. I also used the new Falling Leaves embossing folder from the Fall Traditions collection. I embossed some yellow and orange cardstock with the embossing folder, trimmed down one for the background strip and then die cut the other with a Spellbinders circle die (from their old Nestabilities collection). I used watercolor cardstock and my Jane Davenport watercolors for the pumpkins, flowers and the urn. I used other watercolors for the greenery. I die cut a panel of off white cardstock with the largest Essentials rectangle die and adhered that to an off white cardstock base. I then adhered the orange strip and the circle. I layered up my little pumpkin topiary adding the greenery and flowers. The sentiment is from a Spellbinders small die kit from last year called Fall Leaves Card Creator. The word was die cut several times from the watercolor panel that I die cut the pumpkins from, stacked and adhered to the card front.
I hope you enjoyed my projects. Your next stop on the hop is Betty Wright's blog. I know Betty will have something fabulous to share! Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely day!
