Timberline Blog Hop

Welcome to the Damask Divas Blog Hop featuring the Timberline paper pack. If you came here from Traci's blog, then you are in the right place.  If you've hopped here by chance, be sure to check out the full list of blog participants on the Damask Divas Blog. This paper is perfect for masculine cards, layouts, and Father's Day!  Camping season is upon is and this paper is also perfect for showcasing those fun pics of your trips!  Plus, there are some adorable stamp sets that also go very well with this paper.

However............I chose to do something a little different from the outdoor theme and so I made a baby card. I got the idea of a baby card after cutting one of the zip strips off of the paper (star pattern). It immediately reminded me of babies.  I used the Artbooking cartridge and cut the overlay (I love this overlay!!) from a piece of lagoon cardstock (set your Cricut to real-dial size. I cut the overlay at 5 1/2 inches for this 6x6 inch Kraft card). Then I just used pieces of the Timberline paper to adhere to the back of the overlay, plus Colonial White, before adhering the whole piece to the card front.  The giraffe is also cut from the Artbooking cartridge.  The tag is cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge and stamped using "B is for Baby," in Chocolate inkTeal & Bronze shimmer trim along with a couple of Aqua Dots finished it off.

I also wanted to show how you can mix & match paper collections.  This BFF card uses Timberline as well as the Skylark Picture My Life collection. "Sweet" was cut using the Artbooking cartridge, add some Teal shimmer trim and teal resin flowers from the Skylark assortment.  A quick, easy card!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!!
