Nut'n Better

Hello Everyone!  I fell in love the the Autumn Acorn stamp set from PTI the moment I saw it.  The variety in the acorn caps is so adorable.  And, love the fact that there's a coordinating die set for the acorns and the leaves in the set as well.  Edgers #1 die was used to add an interesting addition to the bottom of the vanila cardstock.  The colors used are SU very vanilla, tangerine tango, early espresso and crumb cake.
Thanks for stopping by!

Soft Sympanthy

Hello Everyone!  I needed to come up with a quick sympathy card today.  I turned to some softer colors, but didn't want it to be too pastel.  The card base is Pure Ivory by Gina K.  It's a fantastic weight for a card base.  The next layer is Baja Breeze.  I put it through the cuttlebug with the dotted swiss embossing folder and cut a window in it, using a Spellbinders nestability die.  So, the main image is really stamped on the card base.  The stamp set I used is Soft Summer (SU) with baja breeze and pear pizzaz inks.  The sentiment is from Through the Trees stamp set by PTI.  The pear pizzaz frame was made using 2 different sizes of the nestability dies.  One smaller die is placed inside a larger die and run through the cuttlebug together.  A Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon finishes this one off.  Thanks for stopping by!
