Footloose & Seaside Wooden Shapes

I was privileged to be a part of the Karen Morris swap! J  I LOVE being a part of this amazing swap and receive so MANY beautiful pieces of artwork!!! 

This time, I chose to use the NEW Footloose Paper packFootloose Paper packSummer is right around the corner (am I rushing things?) and this paper pack makes me so happy! 

The colors in this kit are…Bamboo, Crème Brulee, Lagoon, New England Ivy, Pear, Smoothie, Sweet Leaf and White Daisy ~ PERFECT summer colors!!!

Here are my swaps – ready to be mailed…

I created 8 sets of everything.  I kept one set for myself, and mailed off the other 7 to Karen. 

Here are the pieces I created.   
Footloose Swap by Krista Hershberger
One of the requirements for this swap was to use as many BRAND NEW items that we could!!!  I used new Stamp Sets, Embellishments, Card shapes, Workshop Kits and MORE!!

Footloose swap 12x12 layoutToday we will look at the details for the 12x12 page.

I was soooo EXCITED as I “found” these Hawaiian flowers!!!  Ok, so they were on my Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge all along…but I personally hadn’t “found” them yet! LOL!!!
 (stay tuned to the end of this post for details on how to get this Art Philosophy Cricut Bundle for FREE!!!!!!)

Footloose swap 12x12 layout close upTo give these flowers some dimension and style, I stamped an image from our new Diverse Backgrounds stamp set in Smoothie ink on top of the Smoothie flower.  I then sponged all the edges in Smoothie and used one of our NEW Paradise Paper Flowers for the 3rd flower.  For the center of the flower I used the Round Durables!  LOVE these new Embellishments!!!

To finish off this section, I used our NEW Seaside Wooden Shapes and cut part of the Zip Strip (the 1/2” extra strip at the top of our 12x12 designer papers) of “Tropical Get a Way”. 

A tip for you…we have 3 new kinds of laser wooden shape designs!  They are so lightweight and add an extra flair to any of your creations!  They are stampable, and inkable…but in this case, I chose to leave the piece just as it was packaged. J Check out page 39 of the new Idea Book to see another way you can use these shapes.
