Some of my favorite patterns from the new paper release are the tone on tone patterns – they are so versatile! I started by trimming down a sheet of the red checked paper to the size of an A2 card and used the Heart Frames Die Set to cut a heart from the center.
I added a very light blending of blue ink near the top of a white card base and then adhered the patterned paper on top.
I then got to work coloring and die cutting the snow couple image – seemed like the right choice to add onto the heart shaped window.
To finish this card I added a sentiment from the same set on the other side of the heart and filled in the remainder of the white heart with snowflakes.
Next up is the adorable Newton’s Stocking set:
My goal was to create a mantle scene as a home for this sweet image. It’s really just a series of strategically cut squares and rectangles:
I also wanted to try using the new patterned paper to paper piece the stocking. I started by stamping the image on white cardstock and coloring the cat portion of the image. I then stamped onto the green houndstooth paper and trimmed the stocking portion out by hand. I then added the white toe and heal patches, along with Newton on top.
I added the completed stocking to my mantel and finished with a sentiment and the telltale paw prints leading up to the stocking!
