Create Along With Us August 2017

Hello friends.  It's release week over at Papertrey Ink and time for the Create Along With Us challenge!  With all the new Fall stamps and dies coming out, I was blown away by all the inspiration the DT created, and definitely had a hard time just choosing one card to re-create!  The one that I kept going back to though was this one by Dawn McVey:

Stencil Dots - Sunshine1

Obviously I didn't have Dawn's new dotted stencil or the new Beautiful Berries: Fall stamp set, but I improvised with a stencil I already had and used the Beautiful Berries: Spring set instead and came up with a pretty close re-creation!


Pretty close, huh?!  I loved the look of using Pure Poppy for the stenciled dots on the Raspberry Fizz card front...red and pink definitely do work together!!  I used a little strip of Orange Zest DSP to ground the bottom of the card and then built my little bouquet using Gran's Garden and Beautiful Berries: Spring.  And I love that I found a very similar sentiment in the Bloomin Button Bits set.  Dawn has a wonderful way with putting colors together that I normally wouldn't try and I think this card is a perfect example!

You can check out all the inspiration from this month and what every one else is inspired by right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!

I also thought they were the same card! You did a great job on creating Dawn's card, but making it your own at the same time. Beautiful!

Beautifully done, Marcia! LOVE your gradient dotty stencil (more than the new PTI all-one-size!
Gran's Garden and Beautiful Berries stamp/die sets are quickly becoming my faves every time you use them!
