Pretty Little Studio: Celebrate Indian Summer

Monday, September 30, 2019

Morning, y'all!  I'm just stopping in to start the week off right with a couple of celebratory cards, inspired by the Indian Summer Collection.  They happen to be up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today.  Enjoy!
Let's get a little up close and personal.  Shall we?
I started this first card by trimming the top edge of a piece of the Chestnuts patterned print with a piece of the Blue Moon print and anchoring the result, to a slightly larger piece of white cardstock, with a gold-threaded, straight, machine-stitch frame.  Before popping it off the surface of the white, cardstock, card face with foam tape, I wrapped their connection with a yellow ribbon, tied in a bow to the top, left edge of the prepped piece.
I then stapled a "celebrate" Goodbye Summer Die-Cut tab to the top edge of a Magic Days Journaling Pocket Card...
popped it off the prepped piece with foam tape; and topped it with one of those gorgeous, Timeless Die-Cut Frames, filled with a stamped, in Jet Black ink, "EVERY.  SINGLE." and a Timeless Die-Cut Frames + Leaves "MOMENT".  A couple of additional, Goodbye Summer and Time Together Die-Cut flowers, popped up with foam tape, as well as stamped, in Jet Black ink, on vellum and hand-cut leaves, embellish the blossoms that were already part of the frame.  A Love This Flair Button and handful of Starry Night Confetti stars complete the look.
The second in the set was created in a similar fashion to the first.
I trimmed the bottom edge of a piece of the Pumpkin Pie print with a piece of the Pie Spice print and anchored them to a piece of white cardstock in the same way as the first above.  Their connection was wrapped with a length of bright pink ribbon, tied in a bow near the bottom, right edge of the prepped piece.
I then stapled a Goodbye Summer Die-Cut tab to the top edge of a Magic Days Journaling Pocket Card.  I also tucked a heart flag, from that same package, into the mix...
before popping it off the card face with foam tape and topping it with another one of those Timeless Die-Cut Frames, filled with a Timeless Die-Cut Frames + Leaves "BEST" and stamped, in Jet Black ink, "EVERYTHING".  An additional, floral die cut, from that same frame package, popped up with foam tape, as well as stamped, in Jet Black ink, on vellum and hand-cut leaves, embellish the blossoms that were already part of this frame.
Another flower, from that same frames package, dressed up with a couple more stamped, vellum leaves, as well as a handful of Starry Night Confetti stars, complete the look.

Thanks so much for humbling me with a visit!  Have a wonderful week, friends!
