AUGUST PAPER PUMPKIN: BOLD BOTANICALS

We couldn’t wait for our subscribers to see this kit! We were so excited that we decided to reveal part of it at the beginning of the month. We don’t always do sneak peeks because we don’t want to spoil the surprise, but it’s fun to do a little teaser sometimes.
We let our Facebook fans decide what part of the kit to reveal—and their response was clear—the stamp set! What a great choice because this stamp set is simply amazing!  It features innovative designs for beautiful backgrounds and fun phrases for a variety of occasions.

The rest of the kit is quite remarkable too! It’s full of embellishments like woodcut leaves and flowers, twine, burlap trim, mini clothespins, die-cut cardstock pieces, and watercolored backgrounds.

And just to prove the versatility of this kit, here’s another card design that you could try using the components for the kit. With a stamp set like this and a variety of embellishments, there’s no stopping your creativity!

You’re going to love using this stamp set over and over again. The bold floral background can be used in so many ways. Simply stamp and rotate it to create a gorgeous background and a simply elegant design. The style lends itself well to watercoloring as featured on this card.

Scenic Sayings


The mini-pallet has returned!
I posted on July 28, 2016 how to make these little cuties.
With this one I added some jute thread to each side and tied a knot in the ends and attached with a glue gun.
Instructions below.......



Scenic Sayings stamp set 
Here are the directions for the mini pallet 

Start with 14 popsicle sticks, cut the ends off so that each stick
measures 4".


Laying two of them horizontally on your surface.  Take a glue gun and add glue to the first three sticks and align them vertically as you see in the picture.


Now turn the pallet over and add four more, two in the center and one on each side.


Turn the pallet over again and add the remaining 7 sticks to the front of the pallet. 


Here's what it should look like,
of course I had to distress mine.  

Take a little sponge brush and some dark brown acrylic paint and lightly brush strokes of brown across the wood.
Keep and eye out for more ideas that I use this mini little pallet for!
