Sending Smiles - Play Date Cafe #115


Welcome to another week with the Play Date Cafe.  This week our color story includes 4 lovely neutral shades that remind me of nature and have a perfectly rustic charm.

Bark, Burlap, Moss, and Slate


Since I get distracted by sparkling things (and chocolate) around the holidays, I didn't get many Christmas cards made.  I did however purchase my fair share of holiday stamp sets and so I'm looking for versatile images to extend their life/usefulness through 2012.  My angel is from Papertrey Ink's Love Lives Here: Holiday set and she is just perfect for a little something "homey" any time of year.  The patterned paper is also from PTI's Turning a New Leaf collection.

We hope you will join us this week in the Cafe... and thank you so much for all the sweet comments you always leave me here.  I'm so blessed by your kindness and creativity!

ALL Supplies are Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.
Stamps: Love Lives Here - Holiday, Little Labels (sentiment), Mat Stack 1 collection (flourish); Cardstock: Kraft & Rustic Cream; Patterned Paper: Turning a New Leaf; Ink: SU! Always Artichoke & Chocolate Chip; A-Muse Slate; Tools: Mat Stack 1 (mega), Love Lives Here - Holiday dies, Journal Tabs die, MFT Layered Heart die-namics; Sassy Somethings: buttons, Prima trim, Webster's Pages (resin flower)

SO pretty. I really love this set but have held off not knowing if it could be versatile enough. You are not helping. LOL

This is so beautiful, Denise! You have such a gift for layering and making pretty cards!

Marybeth said...

Absolutely Beautiful! Makes me wish I had that set.

Debbie Gaydos said...

Oh Denise... this is stunning! I love all the layers, and the details. The little flourishes on the Mat Stack, the text on the heart. And the patterned paper you choose compliments the design perfectly - gorgeous!

Very pretty Denise. Love the wings in plaid.

This sweet little angel reminds me of Willow-something figurines. YOu know which ones I mean? They have a rustic appearance and no faces. I have several of them as Christmas ornaments, all angels, and they are among my favorite gifts from my in laws. (I feel like a bonehead for not remembering the name!)

Beautiful project, as always, Denise!
