Card sets - C'est Magnifique Sept. Kit

I'm back today to share my last projects created with the stunningly beautiful and versatile "Nature's Journey" September kit from C'est Magnifique. The papers and flowers are to die for... so perfectly coordinated!

First, a card set with a beach feel to them. I used the fantastic ink and beautiful script stamp in the kit on plain white cardstock to create the background. Then, I added several layers of paper from the kit - easy breezy!

Here is another card set, again using the stamp and ink for the background. This set features lots of fussy cutting from the gorgeous papers. Lots of distressed layers on the cards for texture too.

Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today while I share my creations!

Dusty Attic Sept. Sketch Challenge

This month I was very inspired to use my absolute favourite Dusty Attic chipboard set for my sketch layout - the skeleton clock faces (DA0430). I never get tired of creating with these gorgeous clocks - and you get 4 in the set! I also used a newer piece for the "moments" title from the last chipboard release. There are six gorgeous large script titles in the word pack #4 (DA1077).

Here is a close-up view. I wanted a matte and rustic look so I simply used gesso on the bare clocks and distress ink on the title - leaving some of the bare chipboard showing.

Don't forget to enter your interpretation of this beautiful sketch for a chance to win some chipboard goodness! Link to the top right side of the DA blog to enter your project.

NOTE: All of the other product used on this layout (with exception to the chipboard) was from the gorgeous C'est Magnifique "Nature's Journey" September kit.
