Embellishments



Good Friday Morning to you! Whoo hoo - long weekend waiting ahead, friends! :)

I have a couple of sweet goodies to show you today! Both are created with Papertrey Ink's August release set Embellishments. I was looking for something different to do with these, and while surfing for inspiration, I came across THIS beautiful pillow from Pottery Barn. I knew it was a great leaping off point to create a sun-kissed, slightly faded look like this:



I had made this a couple of weeks ago, then went to lunch with my friend Eileen. While there, I received one of her newer ScoreBoards dies, the Box with Scalloped Flap. I just *love* these! I promptly cut a piece of off-white matboard and stamped a matching piece! The front piece was die cut from the coordinating PTI Embellishments die; to achieve the look, I stamped Vintage Cream ink and immediately applied clear embossing powder. (The paper is Terracotta Tile.) When heat embossed, it gave this sweet, milky look that went so well with the rest of the project.



I hope this inspires you to create something fun this weekend. Have a wonderful Labor Day and I will chat with you next week!
