Mixin' It Up with Some Cards!

So what do you guys think? The new lines - awesome or what?!

I'm totally in love with these new lines. The designs are perfect to me. I wanted to whip up a couple of cards with the new lines, because I was intrigued with the idea of using the new 6x6 pads with one of the 12x12 papers. I love that the patterns on the small pads of paper are proportional to their size.

This first card uses the Picket Fence line- the 12x12 text paper (both sides) and then the smaller woodgrain and blue/brown pattern.
I think it makes for a really cool contrast. I also added a star punched out of the green piece from the Stationary line for a bit of pop.
And because I already had my hands on that piece of green paper, I couldn't stop. It is my favorite shade of green. I'm obsessed with that green! :) I made a little note card using it and some of the "This and That" line of paper and stickers.

Some American Crafts glitter Thickers add some sparkle, along with some randomly placed rhinestones. I hope you have enjoyed these! Good luck to all of you who entered the BIG DRAWING (you can still enter today)! :)

So cute! I love that blue woodgrain too. How did you do that scalloped circle that is just a border? Punch a scallop, then punch out the center? I need to put my punches to better use!
