I've got a lot to share with you today, so let me get started!...
First up, a simple single layer card that's sure to give you no problems when sending it through the mail.Up to this point I've shared with you only the solid bell images. Well, also included in this set are outlined bells. Perfect for pulling out those Copic markers or for pairing with it's solid companions, like I did on today's card. I stamped all four bells onto a white card base in a color combo of Pure Poppy, Aqua Mist, Spring Moss & Summer Sunrise.Next up, I pulled out the wreath and berry images (from Wreath for All Seasons) and paired them with the smallest bough branch from Bells & Boughs. I stamped the wreath in Dark Chocolate, the boughs in Spring Moss, the berries in Pure Poppy and a Bells & Boughs sentiment in Dark Chocolate onto a Rustic Cream cardstock block. Then attached the stamped block onto a kraft card base. Adhered a couple strips of Dark Chocolate cardstock and embellished with matching buttons.Finished the card off with a die cut and stamped Hawaiian Shores bow and matching button.Here's a super cute and super simple holiday card trio. I simply stamped the tag (from Fillable Frames Additions 2) directly onto a white card base. Within the frame I stamped a small bow and sentiment, both from Bells & Boughs. To give these tag a realistic and fun look, I pierced a hole inside the tag top and cut a slit just outside of the tag top. Then threaded white silk ribbon through the two holes (using a needle) in pretty much the same way I would have had this been a real tag. One in Spring Moss.One in Aqua Mist. I think I like this arrangement the best out of the three.And one in Pure Poppy.I pulled out the Bells & Boughs poinsettias for this last card. Stamped them in both Pure Poppy and Spring Moss and cut them out. To create leaves, I cut the Spring Moss poinsettia petals apart and attached the sections behind the Pure Poppy ones.To create this Mega Mat Stack #2, I die cut two from white cardstock. Stamped the first one with Background Basics: Houndstooth (in Smoky Shadow), trimmed the top and bottom off of the second one and then attached the two together. Once assembled, I stamped with "Merry Christmas" and "From Our Family to Yours" sentiments (both from Bells & Boughs) and attached to a Soft Stone card base. Embellished with True Black buttons, the assembled poinsettias and black rhinestones.
Well, that's it from me today. I hope you've enjoyed this detailed look into my new goodies for the month of September. Remember Bells & Boughs and its coordinating dies will all be available for purchase starting September 15th, at Papertrey Ink. I honestly can't wait to see this set in your hands and in action!
