October LPS Sneak Peek #1

So the Little Paper Shop is going to be having 2 releases this month...one being this Saturday in honor of world card making day and the other being on the 14th. Twice the excitement! I am super excited about both releases, but I super love the set we are previewing today...it's called Topiary and it is so stinkin cute! It's a 3x4 set and has this super cute tree you will see below and 5 sentiments...I just love how versatile it is! Great job Julia!!!

First I wanted to show you this super cute little box...It's called a mini Magazine bog but I can not remember where I got the instrcutions...blog surfing one day and I didn't write it down...shame on me! (if you know who created this please let me know so Ic an give proper credit please!) Isn't it just the cutest? I lvoe this little card set...the cards measure 3 x 4 and I just think they are precious! A perfect little thank you for a gift or kind gesture someone extended to you!

And this is a little side view of te box...cute huh! I love this because I can make another set using a different sentiment from this set and another box and line them up on a shelf...not only will they look pretty, but also convenient!

And this is what the cards look like! They are very simple...I lvoe one layer cards! But i think they pack a punch! They are not exactly one layer as they have a little trip of designer paper just above the scallop boarder, but the are still cute! One thing I love to do when I make a scalloped edge like that is add a snippet of designer paper to the inside, it adds such a nice touch!

To the topiary I stamped it in Wild Wasabi ink and colored the flower pot with my Chocolate Chip Marker and masked the edge and stamped...I colored the topiary part with an aqua painter and reinker adding different amounts of ink to vary the shade.

For the little flower pot I actually colored it in with river rock and my aqua painter fisrt and then went back and added color accents and highlights with my Tangerine Tango ink refill and aqua painter. Punched some holes, tied some ribbon and added glitter and this baby is done...after stamping the sentiment with Tangerine tango of course! (Tip: Stamp the sentiment BEFORE tied the knot...grrrr)

Thanks for stopping by! Julia has some awesome things planned for Saturday (World Card Making day!) so stop by the Little Paper Shop or the Little Paper Shop blog to see what's in store and to check out what the other design team members have made for todays release!

Thanks for Stoppin' by!

Happy Stampin'
