New patterned paper

My friend, Mandy, & I placed an online order a couple of weeks ago, and I couldn't resist tossing this sheet of patterned paper by Studio Calico into our cart. After hesitating only slightly (it's always hard cutting into a lovely sheet of patterned paper!), I cut it up and made two cards.

For my first card, I covered a piece of PTI vintage cream cardstock with the patterned paper and added some PTI diecuts (LL:ovals), buttons and twine. The sentiment is some a Simon Says Stamp stamps set.

I added some Smooch to my buttons to add a little bit of glitter for this week's MIM at Papertrey Ink: Detail Glitter Technique.

And my next card is quite similar, but I changed up the design slightly, the sentiment (this time using one from PTI's Holiday Lights stamp set) and the embellishments. The brads are My Mind's Eye and the snowflake was diecut from the back of this same patterned paper, using a PTI Snowflake Medley die.

For the MIM technique, I added some Smooch over the snowflake and then sprinkled it with some Martha Stewart Glitter while it was still wet.

Thanks for looking!
