Summer is drawing to a close and school starts in just about a few days. There are so many exciting things going on right now! It's also MFT Teaser Time...and for a debut of some on my new stamps. This month I get to offer you TWO new, fun sets!
Primitive Pumpkins ($23.95) - A rustic, primitive style Halloween/Pumpkin stamp set and Die-namics combo. This set features three unique pumpkins and several accent images, all with their own primitive, folksy flair! Useful sentiments and a fun, funky star garland image are also part of this versatile set. Check out the handy graphics to see all of the images and dies in this combo!
Distressed Diamonds ($15.95) - A simple, elegant diamond background set that features three strips of diamonds with a touch of distressing. There is a large and small group strip and a single strip of medium diamonds. This set is a must have set because of the extreme versatility!
On to the stamping!Here is the first card I created with this set. Folksy and classic primitive Halloween!
The pumpkins from Primitive Pumpkins are stamped in three different colors while the accent stars float around. Distressed Diamonds is used to create the background paper.I had fun choosing a cute sentiment for this set.
Each pumpkin and star is unique in its own way. The wonky dot one might just be my favorite though. The bottom portion of the top layers is actually a die cut of the scalloped border die that has been stamped and adhered under the real top layer. The seam is hidden with the twine.The inside has some of the design elements that follow over from the front.
The Halloween Garland image is fun because it was created to give a sense of motion. I chose to use a die cut of the pumpkin for the inside to add some contrast.Next is a softer card that could be used for a fall card too.
The inside reflects the exterior design. I included a single image in Primitive Pumpkins that has all three pumpkins in a trio. This is a fun little image for SO many things. Perfect for treat bag too!
Lastly, a pastel Halloween Birthday card!
You might be wondering who would want one of these... Well… my Hannah has a fall birthday and LOVES Halloween! She had so many Halloween Birthday parties growing up. I will never think of that holiday and not think of her!The sentiment is stamped and embossed on a new Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX die cut. I threaded some twine into the top for a decorative element.
The background paper is stamped with the largest of the Distressed Diamonds strips.I love the leafy flourish die because of the elegance and flow it lends to my projects.
There is a new picket fence die that I used here too. I stamped it with the wood grain image from the By the Numbers stamp set and embossed it. We have a little white picket fence that inspired me to do that.Well, that wraps up my projects for today’s post. I hope that you’ve enjoyed the projects. I know I concentrated on Halloween projects for today’s post… but I hope that you will get a sense of how versatile Distressed Diamonds is too.
