I've been so enjoying summer that I didn't even want to think about fall and back-to-school or Thanksgiving projects yet. But the new release at Papertrey Ink recently changed all that! After seeing so many beautiful products and inspiring projects each day of the release, I couldn't miss out on the opportunity to participate in the chance to create with those talented artists! So I'm adding this to their Create Along with Us: August 2016 challenge.
I made the card below using the Inspired: Lord Mini Stamp Set and die and one of my favorites, the Quilted: Autumn Stamp Set and dies.
As daunting as it was, I decided to CASE this card from one of the very best, designer Melissa Phillips! I hardly changed a thing, I just used a different stamp set and sentiments, and kept it simple. Her idea of repeating the colors with a text and border under the tag is genius!
I know I didn't come close to doing her gorgeous card justice but it felt so fun to play with this style again. I absolutely loved the homespun feel, the colors and especially the layered ribbons of her card. I had to search my stash of designer papers for one in red that worked. When I moved I seriously gave away my DSP! Missing them now....especially the reds which are always the first ones I use up.
Thanks for visiting my blog, I hope you'll come again!
Find delight in your craft.
Make something beautiful!
