Hello and Happy Thursday! I hope you are having a wonderful day! I've been without internet this morning Eekkk!! Totally NOT how I wanted my day to start out hee hee! I've upgraded to U-Verse but didn't think it would take effect till tonight and assumed I would have internet till the switch another NOT!! Soooo a phone call and several transfers later here I am!!
I was having trouble sleeping last night so I decided to head to my craft room and play a bit! I thought I would experiment with one of Emma's newest sets, Piles of Smiles! I just love the leaf dies that are included! Funny thing, I started out with a WHOLE different direction than what you are looking at now! I started cutting out the leaves (to use) then noticed how cool just the card stock looked with the leaves gone! The card stock I started with was white and then I backed it with some gold card stock. Before I added the gold card stock, I took out my Tim Holtz distress ink and directly applied Vintage Photo and Mustard Seed. I kinda got a little crazy with my faux stitching and it was late and some of the stitches are are little wobbly hee hee!! After the gold card stock was added, I decided I had to give the leaves some cute faces! I used Peachy Keen, PK-293 The Cornies Face Assortment (they always crack me up and put a smile on my face lol) I colored their eyes with my white jelly roll pen and also added glossy accents. I then stamped my sentiment which is included in this set also!!
Now onto my next project! I had several leaves that I needed to do something with so here is how I used those!
I used two of Emma's newest dies, Card Sentiments which includes this 3x3 Fancy Tri-fold card and the 3x3 Fancy Envelope Die! I was SOOOO excited when I saw these dies!! I've been wanting something like this FOREVER!!! Now making 3x3 cards will be a BREEZE!! The wagon is also from the Piles of Smiles stamp set I just replaced the hay with my leaves!! I used my Tim Holtz ink to color the leaves. I had cut out a small bow from the Artiste cartridge and didn't use it the other day so I decided to add that on as well! Here's the inside!
I couldn't get a great picture and the lighting was all off :( There is also another leaf when you open up the bottom flap and I've used a sentiment from the Piles of Smiles set here too!!
