Welcome back for day 2 of the Papertrey Ink October release countdown! Thanks for your sweet comments on yesterday's post! I have two cards to share with you today using products I'm really excited about! Up first is a floral card using the AMAZING new Into the Blooms: Dahlia dies! If it's anything "Into the Blooms", you know I'm going to love it and these Dahlias are no exception! The foliage that is included in the collection is FABULOUS and I know I will be reaching for them often to tuck here and there on all kinds of cards!
This card also features the new To Die For Sentiments: All Is Bright. I die cut it from gold glitter cardstock and layered it on top of two other die cuts from Kraft. This particular sentiment is a little bit delicate, so I actually glued it together in reverse. I put the gold cardstock back into the die so that it would be in the correct position and then layered the 2 Kraft pieces on top. I simply pushed it out of the die using my piercing tool and it was ready to use.
I also added the cute ornament, which is from the new Vase Collection. It is meant to be used with sprigs and things coming out of the top for a fun look, but I chose to use it as a regular ornament. I'm sure you'll find more examples using it as a vase, and I know I will be using it again as it was intended! ha ha!
I layered all of the flowers and foliage onto a panel of Scarlet Jewel cardstock with white paint splatters using liquid glue and foam squares. From there, I added a bit of glue to the bits of the sentiment that would be touching the highest points on the card and let it dry.
The ornament is stamped using Sweet Blush ink and gold polka dots. The flowers were inked using assorted Distress Oxide inks. I layered the entire focal panel (it has rounded corners) onto a top folding A2 Scarlet Jewel card base.
My second card for today is a little bit more traditional and playful using the CUTE new wagon set! I think it's just the cutest thing ever and I had so much fun putting this card together!
To begin, I die cut all of the pieces and then had fun stamping away until they were all done! I used liquid glue and foam squares to assemble the wagon.
There are a bunch of fun sentiment that you can add to the tiny sign hanging from the wagon, and I opted to use the one that says "special delivery". I used the Santa Claus is coming to town sentiment to enhance the delivery theme!
I had so much fun with theCorner It: Holly stamp set for THIS card, and I thought a few holly leaves and berries would be cute in the corners.
I had so much fun creating both of the cards for today! Join me again for day 3 of the countdown! There's so much to love! Thanks for fluttering by!
