Good morning, everyone, and welcome back to Day 4 of the Papertrey Ink
January countdown! Today's group post is all about Petite Places: Home & Garden
. Betsy has saved the best Petite Places for last! This series may be coming to a close, but the Home & Garden edition is so versatile, you definitely won't be disappointed. Let's get on to some projects, shall we?
My first project today is a decorated pint container. These are the perfect size for a few seed packets and some peat seed starters or a handful of spring bulbs (Narcissus would be perfect!).
I began by die cutting the shed components, wheelbarrow, flowers, and trellis parts from Rustic White cardstock. I stamped those with their coordinating images (there are even tools to hang on the side of the shed!) and assembled the shed and trellis.
Next, I die cut the garden plots from cork sheeting and tucked the flowers into place. I wanted a pathway, so I pulled out Petite Places: Walk In The Park for the center aisle. I stamped third generation Smokey Shadow onto Soft Stone to get the right color balance.
Then, I decorated a pint container using Simply Chartreuse patterned paper and Pure Poppy ribbon. I tied a little sentiment tag to the container with Baker's Twine before I adding a little button-embellished bow to hide the ribbon seam.
Then, I die cut a Scene It: Basic Backer shape from Ripe Avocado patterned paper and added it to the top of the container with foam tape.
I adhered my garden scene into place and then topped the whole thing with a clear dome. Isn't it the cutest?!
Next, I have a 3D tag that I created for a new neighbor or friend moving into their first house.
I began by die cutting and assembling a Petite Ornament: Square shape from Rustic White cardstock. I added stamped scene panels to two of the windows using the trees in Petite Places: Home & Garden and Petite Places: Walk In The Park.
I also added a bit of sponging with Aqua Mist to suggest a clear, blue sky. The backs of those panels were stamped with the plaid image from Half & Half so the outside would still have a bit of interest, too. Next, I added the "grass" patch using a square of Simply Chartreuse patterned paper.
Once the ornament itself was ready to go, I went to work on the components for the inside. I die cut the house, tree, and flower beds from Rustic White cardstock and stamped all of them with their coordinating images. I added a die cut swing to the tree with Smokey Shadow cardstock and created a sidewalk by stamping the pathway from Petite Places: Walk In The Park onto Soft Stone cardstock.
Then I went about creating my little scene inside the ornament. I adhered everything at an angle, so I wouldn't have a "bad" side.
Next, I die cut a Bountiful Banners shape from Rustic White and stamped it with the coordinating image in Aqua Mist ink. I added the sentiment, from Keep It Simple: Home, in Smokey Shadow ink before adhering it to the ornament. I used a bit of Baker's Twine to tie my tag to a bag handle and then added a small Summer Sunrise bow for a pop of color. I'm so smitten with this set. Everything turns out so cute!
And lastly today, I have one more Background Basics: Splats
card to share with you. All week, I've been working with these images and thinking "dalmatian." So I thought I'd go ahead and make a card for someone who may have gotten a new puppy (the spots would also work in other colors for different breeds, too).
I began by repeatedly stamping the large dot strip onto a white card base using True Black ink. Next, I die cut the medium Tipped Tops shape from Smokey Shadow cardstock. I die cut the dog image, leaving a negative, and heat embossed the sentiment using white powder. I added a scalloped border to that piece using the Embroidered Frames: Dots die and Sweet Blush cardstock.
I adhered that panel into place with foam tape and then added a Sweet Blush puppy sweater that I'd embellished with a tiny heart. A pink puppy nose created with a colored-to-match pearl was the perfect finishing touch.
That's all for me today, friends. I hope you've enjoyed today's post. Make sure to check in with Nichole

for more Petite Places inspiration. I'll see you back here tomorrow. Have a great day!
