Introducing Petite Places...

If you really enjoyed the little house die from Papertrey Ink's Tinsel & Tags kit at Christmas, you'll be over the moon about the new series by Betsy Veldman called Petite Places. This month, we have a cute little 3D church coming out, so I created a little Spring scene with the Petite Places: Church stamps and die and the Petite Places: Pop Up Trees dies.

The backer to hold the bauble was cut with a new die called Scene It: Basic Backer die with Simply Chartreuse Pattern Pack paper, then the trees were die cut from the backer and folded up. The little church was stamped and sugar coated on top a bit for sparkle! I used Terra Textures Spring Green Natural Flakes on the inside for "grass" and the Clear Tag Domes for the topper. The dome is adhered to the backer with Glossy Accents, works great.

This is the Day gift topper:
(All supplies by Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.)
STAMPS: Petite Places: Church
INK: True Black; Soft Granite by Hero Arts
PAPER: Simply Chartreuse Pattern Pack
DIES: Petite Places: Church, Petite Places: Pop Up Trees, Scene It: Basic Backer
OTHER: Terra Textures Spring Green Natural Flakes, twine, flower sequins, Clear Tag Domes.

Next, I used a Petite Places: Church sentiment with the Bitty Bouquets, the Scene It: Basic Backer die and Scene It: Skyscapes dies.

I'm so excited about this one, because there's a little secret you can't see here! I actually used Summer Sunrise Patterned Paper (a bright orange-yellow) under the new Sheer Basics Vellum, and look what color it turned after adding the vellum! A pretty soft coral. I absolutely love it. 
Now I can't wait to experiment with other color combinations with this vellum and layering it over the top! Who would have thought the color would change like that!

Congratulations on Your Wedding Day card:
(All supplies by Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.)
STAMPS: Petite Places: Church, Bitty Bouquets
INK: Dark Chocolate, Summer sunrise, Melon Berry
PAPER: Fine Linen/White/Melon Berry cardstock, Summer Sunrise Pattern Pack (behind vellum), Sheer Basics Vellum
DIES: Scene It: Basic Backer, Scene It: Skyscapes, Double Ended Banners die
OTHER: rustic twine, clear sequins by Pretty Pink Posh.

And one more just for fun with the Bitty Bouquets! I'm hopelessly addicted to these already. I used a similar color palette as above, but I added Scarlet Jewel and Classic Kraft ink colors to the mix also. I found this image, and it absolutely inspired me with the colors AND the design! I had to try it.
There is some die cutting and some flowers just stamped right on the card front. I love the dimension with the Double Ended Banner die that I just scored and folded on the ends.

I love with your cards!

Trish said...

I adore the little scene jar topper. I loved all the projects that i created with the Christmas Tinsel and Tags kit and now I KNOW I am going to love Petite Places. The church is wonderful with the tiny flowers- you do such beautiful projects!

richardbreaks said...

That topper would have me insane, because my fingers are too big. You did a lovely job with it. I think the darker ink really helps see the tiny details better than a lighter one would.
Your card is so fab. Really digging the color story there!

richardbreaks said...

Great job! Love the colors on your card so much!

Diana K said...

So beautiful, Danielle. That last card is an absolute stunner and has totally convinced me (as though I needed convincing) that Bitty Bouquets is a yes - it stays in my cart no matter what else I may need/want!

Jennifer K said...

Beautiful projects! I really like how you used such an unconventional color scheme on your card - it is so unique and eye-catching.

Sandy M said...

Danielle, your church is just beautiful; I love the glitter added to the roof! The cards have such beautiful color combinations and just pop - thank you for sharing your creativity!

Nancy Penir said...

Dani, such fresh and springy colors! Love the coral creation with the vellum, and oh what gorgeous cards!

Kathy Mc said...

Your Spring scene is gorgeous, Danielle, and appreciate the details. Amazing how the color totally changed covering it with vellum. Gotta tell you how much I LOVE the color combo on your last card. Now I need to add more inks to my cart. : )

Luanne said...

These are so inspiring! I love your beautiful color combinations. Fabulous!

Unknown said...

Fabulous!! Great ideas to show off these new items!

Helen L said...

Beautiful, Danielle!! Thanks for showing us the little surprise under the vellum too: I love the coral color it changes the yellow to!

Nikki Kehr said...

Such a freaky idea with this Bubble, i love it :)

Thanks for sharing

Goodness, I missed these. What a color combination. So trendy. And what an odd thing to discover about the vellum, eh? That coral is wonderful though.

Lola G. said...

Danielle, your Thanks card is my favorite of all the cards we've seen during the past ten days. The colors you chose are absolutely delicious together, and it seems that you combined just the right amount of them with the crisp white. I'm heading over to Pinterest to get this on my PTI board – thank you so much for the visual delight!

I know I'm late to the party but how did you clip off the ornament hanger before you created the topper? Love your project btw, I have all the sets and have never used them, can you believe that. Just made my first one today but haven't assembled it yet.
