Creation Station Hop - Artistic Expression!

Welcome to Just Julie B - and to our 'Artistic Expression' for the month of August! We focused on stamps and accessories from the Annual catalog in the section from pages 127 - 179 (Artistic Expression). There are so many awesome things, and I decided to stamp and use products from the Rooted in Nature set, coordinating paper and framelits! I made a card with a coordinating gift box.

The card is a Petal Pink base, with a layer of Petal Pink embossed with the Subtle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (easier to see in a later picture). 

On that layer I added a 1 3/4" strip of Nature's Poem DSP layered with Blackberry Bliss and Silver Foil. Love the Silver Foil - it adds a bit of bling!! I die cut and embossed both of the leaves from Blackberry Bliss Cardstock and added them over a Blackberry Bliss stamped vellum piece (the Blackberry Classic Ink stamped on vellum takes on it's own lighter/brownish hue).

But I LOVE the silver/bling coordination of the Silver Foil, Petal Pink & Silver Baker's Twine and the Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels. - Just that little bit of extra sparkle/bling it needed!

And here's a little tip for adhering the stamped vellum piece - use Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, or whatever adhesive you need - but under where you will have a layer (I put the Blackberry Bliss leaves on top of those areas)!! 

And here's a sweet and simple lidded box. I used a 6" x 6" Blackberry Bliss cardstock base for the box, and a 4 1/16" square Petal Pink base for the lid. I added a piece of DSP for the top and tied coordinating Baker's twine around and in a bow on the top - with a simple 'leaf' tag!

Of course, some Rhinestone Jewels help to coordinate it with the card!

I hope you enjoyed your stop here - and you'll be WOWed to hop on over and see what the fabulous Elizabeth Price has created this month! 

Thanks for stopping by,

Julie B

These are beautiful! You are right, the silver does bring it all together!

Just lovely Julie! The Subtle embossing folder makes a great background for your card without adding lots of detail.

Julie: The color combination for your projects is stunning! I love both projects and may have to CASE them. So clever to make the leaf a tag with a sentiment! xoKathyxo

I think your blackberry bliss embossed leaves are the coolest! It all looks so rich and soft with the petal pink.
