Release Sneak Peek: Funky Foliage

Are you ready for the next set? This one just may be my favorite of the 4 debut sets. Funky Foliage is a true image building set, there are so many possibilities.

Funky Foliage contains 24 stamps; 18 images and six sentiments.

For my fist card I used one of the tree tops, the matching outline image, and the matching faux stitching inset. Yep, there are matching insets to create the perfect faux stitching!

*Note: the background scallop stamp on the card base is from PTI's faux ribbon set. I added some hand stitching around the focal panel and finished it off with a button. The "Hello" sentiment is also included in the set. I'm a sucker for simple serif typefaces.

My next sample showcases a couple more tree styles as well as their matching outlines. The great thing about these trees is that you don't have to use the whole tree...even cropped, they make the cutest embellishments. Here I stamped three of them and then used SU!'s curly label punch to create three panels.

I strung them all together by punching a hole on the left and right sides of each panel and threaded them with a heavy twine. The sentiment on this card is from another set that you'll see later this week. *Bonus: This card is a money holder, you can find the tempate for cutting and scoring dimensions here.

And finally I have a card that features just sentiments.

*Note: the background grid stamp on the card base is from PTI's faux ribbon set. "did i mention..." I just love that phrase, it could be the start of any occassion, which makes it a perfect staple sentiment. Oh and I just had to try out that poofy flower thing that I've seen all over blogland lately. Love it...but I want to try it with tissue paper, I think I will like that even more. I finished the inside using another sentiment from Funky Foliage and some hearts from yesterday's set "Love Birds".

So that's it for today, I really hope you are enjoying the release sneak peeks so far. Are you excited? Is there something you've seen so far that is your favorite? There are still two sets left in my debut release, and you don't want to miss them...I promise!
