BoBunny Design Team: Enchanted Forest with Shelly Maxwell

Enchanted Forest from BoBunny is a rich harvest of Butterflies, Sunflowers, Fairies, and more! Each double-sided heavy cardstock piece of 12x12 archival safe paper is seeded with rich, heartwarming images that you will "Fall" in love with just like I did. I've put together several autumnal themed pieces from this collection. Take a quick break and hopefully become inspired to create something of your own:

A layout, banner and card collection using Tim Holtz and  Taylored Expression dies. Here's the Layout:
Create this butterfly using a large butterfly stamp on vellum paper with Staz-on ink. Fussy cut image and flip it over. Use Copic markers on the "back side" to color butterfly. Adhere to layout with glue dots just below the body of the butterfly and allow the wings to be "free".

An Enchanted Forest banner with a message:

"Give Thanks" uses die cut letters from Tim Holtz's alphabet die.
 I used a gold metallic pen around the edges to add an outline pattern or "faux" stitching.
A Thankful collection of cards:

 A large tag folded in half serves as the base for this approximately 4x4" card. Eyelet and twine added for embellishments: 
Stop by The Scrapbook Studio, Moline IL for all your scrapbooking, cardmaking, and craft projects and grab some Enchanted Forest goodies while you're there, too!
