Tuesday Trigger using Mint Motif


I decided to play along with this weeks Moxie Fab Tuesday Triggercalled a Funky Fall.
The inspiration pieces always seem to get my mojo jump started!
I was inspired by the colors the most in the above photo, especially the green.
There are so many beautiful fall pattern papers out there to choose from, which would have been amazing to use.  However, I love the City Park line from American Crafts, and the sheet of pattern paper that I chose just worked perfectly.  I also needed to make a happy birthday card that I wanted to be non-seasonal.  The sheet of paper is actually embossed and has a really great texture to it.  After I adhered the pattern paper (floral and solid green strip), I grabbed my Mint Motif stamps.  The white label die cut was cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Labels Sixteen.  The sentiment is from the Very Square Sentiments stamp set, and the green pattern underneath the sentiment was created by using one of the square back ground builders from the Very Square stamp set.  Both sets can be found at i{heart}papers.  The rhinestones in the bottom corner were a clear color originally, but I decided to color them with a Copic marker, so they would match the pink in the pattern paper.  That fun bakers twine is actually made by Jillibean soup (so fabulous)!

Materials Used:
Mint Motif Very Square stamp set
Mint Motif Very Square sentiments stamp set
PTI kraft card stock
white card stock
Kaisercraft rhinestones
American Crafts City Park Liberty Grove pattern paper
Copic markers
Memento ink
American Crafts this to that foam squares
Spellbinders Labels Sixteen
