To start the ball rolling we have two new sets to show you today.
First up is an addition to Di’s build a scene stamp sets. Entitled “Follow Your Bliss” this set is filled with stone walls, wild flowers and some of the cutest critters! When I first laid eyes on this set my heart was won over by this little rabbit.
I CASEd this design from my CAS buddy Cristina – I loved the idea of the rabbit peeping over the wall as viewed from the window in the kraft mat. There’s lots of layering and dimensional tape in this card. The rabbit is cut out and popped up and the wall is popped up higher and then the kraft layer is popped up even higher!
Don’t you just love this little guy! As I needed a birthday card I paired my rabbit with a sentiment from sentimental birthday.
Next up is a follow on set from a hugely popular previous release. Today’s set entitled Bucket of Love Holiday Additions is not unsurprisingly a follow on to Bucket of Love!
Torico has done an amazing job illustrating this autumn and Christmas themed set. I chose to work with one of the smaller Christmas images to make a tag for a sweet little box.
And you can’t have a gift box without a matching card!
This Spellbinders die reminded me of the shape of the Christmas baubles I have that have been passed down from generation to generation. They are some of my most treasured possessions and each year I’m flooded with childhood memories as I get them out of the box for my children to hang on the tree. Anyway, dragging myself back from my memories to today, I added the little pine bough along with a sentiment from the set and strung the die cut from a piece of twine to represent my Christmas bauble. Here’s the card and box together.
Oh and it feels sooooo good to have a little Christmas project under my belt!
Now it’s time for your next stop on the hop – Holly’s blog.
Enjoy your day!
