Time for the August PTI bloghop! I just love the monthly bloghops, it's so great to see all the different projects that come out of the same challenge. This month the challenge was all about Autumn! Using the Autumn season as inspiration in whichever way you choose. Well, I had another idea in mind, but after seeing hundreds of acorns under a huge tree at the park the other day, I was inspired to do this simple card:
Using Heather's Beyond Basic Borders for the leafy branches, I used brown rhinestones as little glittery acorns! I stamped the branches in New Leaf and the sentiment in Dark Chocolate. Some twine wrapped several times around the top & that's it!
A nice, simple, but gorgeous card. It would be fun to do the same pattern, but use different sentiments to make a card set as a gift.
Thanks for stopping! Till next hop! :)

I used the rhinestones again on the lower left corner, added some ribbon(TE), crocheted flower (Fancy Pants) & button/twine(PTI).
Thanks again to all the Mojo team for a great week of sketches!

I loved this fun sketch & am definately going to play with it again!
*All products used are from Taylored Expressions Aug.20th kit.
The only stamping on this is the thank you sentiment. Usually stamping is the focus of my cards, but it's always fun to try something different, so I really tried to use the rub-ons from the kit and not stamp on everything! :)

The cute dangly spider and Happy Halloween spiderweb are from the same Studio G set. I used my TH foam tool to ink the edges with black ink. Patterned papers are from last years MM line.
Thanks for stopping! Come back for more PDD fun on Friday!

For my card I used the large Blackberry Nesties stamp. After die-cutting & embossing, I used my Tim Holtz foam applicator & Tea Dye distress ink pad to add color to the inside. This leaves a nice crisp edge around the die cut.
For the background paper, I used a Spellbinders Impressability (Butterfly) and again used the TH foam applicator to apply Tea Dye ink to make the embossing stand out.
For the card front, I cut it slightly shorter & used a border punch to finish off the bottom.
These stamps are so great for showcasing whatever image or sentiment you want to show off and frame them so nicely!
If you didn't check out the blog hop yesterday, see post below. Make sure to check out the other girls today & stop back soon for more using the fab new releases!

I am a sucker for cutesy stamps, so I am totally in love with the Princess & Bugs lines! The two new Princesses today are just adorable & I love the cute Bugs and the coordinating stamps that come with them.
Today the design team is working with both the new Princesses & Picnicin' Bugs, Princesses Priya & Isabella and Picnicin' Ant & Ladybug.
Tomorrow we will be showcasing the new Nesties frames as well as the Skittlebugs.
Here are my projects for today using Princess Isabella & Picnicin' Ant:
For my Isabella card, I took her dancing as my inspiration, cut and mounted her on some sheet music patterned paper with foam dots.
Now, make sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's projects with the new releases today (they're all listed on my sidebar). We are also happy to have 2 fabulous guest designers for the new release:

After you check out all the projects, head on over the Pez-A-Doodle to get some new goodies!

This month, I got to use the new release Cats set. So much fun to play with the silhouettes & there are some great, fun sentiments! My late Great-Uncle was a very well respected cat Judge at cat shows all around the world and he was also an artist, drawing great bold black & white cat images, so I was inspired by him for my designs.
