Grateful with My Favorite Things!


Welcome back to the New Release Countdown for My Favorite Things!  This month has been jam packed with new FABULOUS stamps, die-namics, and stencils......don't you think?  Well, there is more goodness to come!


NewReleaseCountdown_Day2

Today I'm using the Falling Leaves Die-namics along with the Words of Gratitude Die-namics.  These die sets are amazing and can be used for so many occasions!  

I started by blending some fall Distress Ink colors (Barn Door, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Frayed Burlap, and Crushed Olive) onto white cardstock.  Using that cardstock, I diecut my Falling Leaves Die-namics.  Once the leaves were diecut, I added some extra color to the edges of the leaves.  Next I used some white woodgrain cardstock and diecut a circle out of the panel.  My leaves were arranged inside this circle and adhered.  The woodgrain panel was only adhered with double layer of foam tape at the top of the circle and the bottom.  By doing this, it gives a "dome" shape to the woodgrain panel which is fun!

My diecut sentiment is from the Words of Gratitude Die-namics set.  I blended more of my Distress Inks onto a scrap piece of cardstock and diecut the word.  I was left with this beautiful colored sentiment!!  I diecut 3 more out of white cardstock and glued them all together for dimension.  Now, I wanted to discuss all the detail in these leaf dies.....seriously lifelike and amazing!!!  All this detail is just from diecutting the leaves!
