Hello friends!  I hope you are doing amazing on this thankful Thursday.  Today I am hopping with some Crafty Collaborators along the All Together Blog Hop as we share lots of inspiration with you.  There are several of us hopping today - you will find the list to follow along towards the bottom of my blog post - so sit back and enjoy your favorite coffee, tea, water or smoothie as we share some handmade projects with you!

Today's Project

You can enjoy lots of coloring fun with this amazing limited edition All Together 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper just like I did!  The early release of the Natural Tones Stampin' Blends Collection (which I did not use for this project) has an amazing limited time stamp set and coordinating dies available that coordinate with this DSP.

Project Details

While I was out returning some Christmas gifts last month, I spied some artwork that reminded me of this design so I could not wait to case it!  

Coloring with Blends on the All Together Designer Series Paper! | Nature's INKspirations by Angie McKenzie

Using Stampin' Blends already in my stash, these colors worked perfectly for this textile background that reminds me of burlap... thus it was only natural to use a Crumb Cake cardbase to compliment this Designer Series Paper.

Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Bronze work beautiful together as they were colored along the diagonal lines to create an alternating color palette.  The DSP was centered and trimmed to 5" x 3-3/4" and adhered to a Crumb Cake layer embossed with the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder.

The Amazing Thanks Dies were used for the sentiment die cuts while the Tasteful Touches sentiment was heat embossed onto Crumb Cake scraps.  The Crumb Cake Baker's Twine was a finishing touch adding even more texture.

The inside was layered to compliment the card front, using scraps from the trimmed DSP.  The Flowing Flowers sentiment was stamped with Crumb Cake ink.  The Tasteful Touches sentiment was stamped and off-stamped on the Basic White Medium Envelope front and flap.
