Lovely As An Oak Tree

Lovely As A Tree has been a favourite stamp set for many years because it's so versatile. I used it to make some masculine themed cards.

The oak tree was coloured using sponge daubers.

Bootiful Bags Paper Pumpkin

There are supplies in the September Paper Pumpkin kit to make six adorable burlap treat bags. I decided to use some of my bags to make a stack of quick cards with burlap accents.

Turn a burlap bag inside-out and trim away the serged seams. Then, press the burlap flat and cut into two pieces: one printed and the other plain.

Use double sided adhesive sheets to adhere the burlap pieces to Very Vanilla card stock. I ran the burlap mounted card stock sheets through the Big Shot to press them together firmly.

Cut burlap shapes with your Big Shot and dies and use them on your cards

I stamped the cute photo-polymer images from the kit on clear bags with StazOn ink and decorated them with the tags and trims.
