Pretty Little Studio - Summer Fell Into Fall

Hi friends! I hope you're having a great day! I'm loving the cool crisp fall weather and playing with the new Pretty Little Studio Indian Summer Collection! Once you get your hands on the collection and look through all the beautiful die cuts, papers and embellishments you'll be falling for this set! I love the images - beautiful leaves, cute critters, and of course some pretty flowers too! 
I arranged the Indian Summer Vellum Leaves on a piece of clear plastic the same size as my card base. When I was happy with the arrangement I was able to pick up the plastic sheet and lay it over different pattern papers from the collection to decide which looked best. I decided on Pie Spice. This was pretty, but I wanted to add more contrast so I added Clear Magic Days Newsprint over half of the card base. The clear sheets are wonderful because you can see the pattern paper underneath them. 
The vellum leaves are soft and translucent so where they overlap it makes a new color! Vellum can be tricky to adhere because the adhesive typically shows through the vellum. Adhering the leaves under the die cut sentiment was a great way to hide the adhesive. The fun die cut sentiment is from the Beautiful Colors Die Cut pack. 
I can't resist adding some sequins - not only do they add some sparkle and shine - they add more color making this a feast for the eyes. There are lots of different sequins in the shop so you're sure to find something that matches with any collection you adore. I've actually added four different colors of sequins to this card. I think the different colors and sizes draw your eye around the entire card design. 
The Indian Summer collection is a real treat! You'll love making with all the different embellishments and images available in this collection!

Jillibean Soup - A Card With a View

Hi and thanks for stopping by! Today I'm making a scene card with Jillibean Soup You Make Miso Happy pattern paper and Peapod Parts die cut images.  Cards with scenes are a sweet escape - isn't this a fun neighborhood?  
I started by creating the landscape. I chose two shades of green patterned paper for the landscape and some navy blue for the sky. Just a few wavy cuts with scissors creates a rolling landscape.. a perfect suburban setting for the little houses. 
Details make all the difference when making a scene. Little leaf Peapod cuts become trees, a doily makes a sunny sky. I even fussy cut a little path to the front door of the home in the forefront.
The houses are added with adhesive foam tape to add dimension to the scene. A little heart helps make it clear that this is a home- not a house. And this card is perfect for welcoming a new neighbor, or to congratulate the new home owner in your life. 

I love how the pattern paper scenery adds a touch of whimsy to the design.  I hope you give this a try some time!

Jillibean Soup Cards Made with Shape Shaker Program Stamps

Hi friends! Today and I’m sharing cards made with stamped die cut images using the Jillibean Soup Shape Shaker program dies.
This card was made with the Succulents stamp and die set. The images are easy to work with. Just stamp, color, and cut. 
The open window dies make it easy to get a perfect cut every time. I tape the die cut in place over the colored image and then run it through my die cut machine.
I created a simple distress ink background for the succulents and made little pots from colorful cardstock scraps. The sentiment is stamped directly on the inked background panel.
The set even includes little florals to embellish the cacti with!
My second card made with the Ice Cream stamp and die set. 
I followed the same technique as the previous card but instead of coloring the ice cream scoops I stamped them with colored ink on colored cardstock.
The set even includes a die for cutting colorful sprinkles. I added a few Jewels to add some yummy shine!
My last card has an ombre pink distress ink background. I left the Call Me telephone uncolored to add a little drama.
I adhered the telephone base directly to the inked panel, and the rotary insert with adhesive foam tape. A little foam adds lots of dimension and brings your images to life. 
Have fun making and exploring the possibilities Jillibean Soup Shape Shaker Stamp and Die Sets bring.
