My brother and sister-in-law recently attended a reunion for her family. As you can imagine lots of pictures were taken in a variety of configurations but there was one picture in particular that I felt deserved some extra attention, and just in time for a birthday gift too.
Once I adhered the patterned strips from Rustic Home Fundamentals paper pack, I mixed a touch of yellow with white watercolor paint to create a cream more compatible with the Colonial White cardstock used and then “splattered” to add some additional texture using our medium-flat waterbrush.
After allowing a few minutes for the splatters to dry, I finished embellishing with Thin Cuts and ribbons. Here’s a complete list of materials used:

Nevermore, one of the new paper packs featured in our Holiday Expressions 2015 idea book, lends itself easily to Halloween layouts and cards because of the colors and some of its paper patterns, but it’s very versatile and can be used in many different ways.
The colors in this pack will be great in any of your fall designs and also work well for masculine themed designs like this birthday card I recently made for my brother.
Inspired by a design I found on Pinterest from classicchristina.blogspot.com, this card was originally made using the now retired Jackson paper pack and I really wanted to use some of our new products. Along with the beautiful new Eggplant Cardstock, one of Nevermore’s B&T Duos™ designs includes mechanical drawings and since my brother is an engineer I just knew I had to use this paper for his card. I combined it with papers from the Georgie and Basics Fundamentals Paper Packs, added some bling from the Sequins Silver Assortment and a small bow made from Whisper Thick Twine. I cut the star using CTMH’s Art Philosophy cartridge. The sentiment is from a retired Operation Smile set, Happy Everything, but could easily be swapped out with one of our current stamp sets such as Joyful Birthday B1419.
