This first card uses the new "All Blessings Flow" stamp set and the new Shiplap Builder die collection! If you loved what could be done with the Create-a-Crate die, then you will love this genius collection even more! This is a set of six identical dies, a bit smaller than the panel in the crate die set, that you can use to create a background like mine in no time!
The foliage and berries from the new All Blessings Flow stamp set are perfect for creating arrangements of all kinds; in the jars, bottles, cans, etc. I decided to use them in clusters to frame this gorgeous scripted sentiment included in the set.
I'm always thrilled when there is a coordinating die for the sentiments. This allowed the fun background to really shine through!
This next set of products checks all of my "must-have for fall" boxes. First up is the GORGEOUS bittersweet branches. The sentiments are also included in this set and I can't get enough of the scripted "autumn" !
The pitcher is from the new Pitcher-esque stamp set. It also has a coordinating floral image that you can use to adorn the pitcher, but I didn't use it for today's projects since I was accenting them with the sentiments. The little floral piece has such a fun nostalgic feel to it that I can't wait to use it on some everyday projects!
And as always, there is a fabulous new set of stencils and a coordinating die called "Square Dance". That is how I created this fun gingham bacgkround!
The Cozy Cup Coaster Die is the perfect grounding piece for these pitchers. I love the added texture and detail that it adds to this design.
I couldn't resist making the same card but with a different color pitcher and background. I kept the two cards cohesive, but different.
I know I say it every time, but once I have these multi step stamps set up in my MISTI, it just makes sense to make multiples.
Both of these two cards using the Bittersweet branch were such a joy to make! I absolutely love when I start seeing these change colors around town~
Last, but not least, is the newest arrival in the "Top Down Day" collection! This one is called "Top Down Day Autumn" and is just the sweetest little collection of stamps and dies. If you're not familiar with the first in the series, you can see it HERE.
I used the Shiplap Builder dies to create a pumpkin stand, like you might find at a pumpkin patch just bursting with the day's harvest! I used the "Picked Fresh" embossing piece from the Create-a-Crate die that was released last month to accent this pumpkin stand!
I used the ever-popular Pinwheel Party Bundle to give this pumpkin stand a little bit of a festive touch! The sentiment is die cut and added over the top of the pinwheels to balance them out! I hope you've enjoyed day 1. Don't forget to stop by for day 2 tomorrow....you won't be disappointed! Thanks for fluttering by!
