Pinterest inspiration {lily bee}

Lily Bee has some new collections: Urban Autumn and We R Family. I sat down to create a few cards using these new lines, and I used Pinterest as a jumping off point for my inspiration. I was pulled towards the Aztec prints, golds and browns, as well as nature images. 

You can see above the collage I created, and below are the cards I made to get you inspired to create using these new collections.

This first card is a mini card. It is smaller than a normal 4x6 card and in that a 3x4 card from the Urban Autumn Daily Deck fits perfectly in the center. 

I love the wood veneers from that collection, too, so I used them to anchor the busy patterns. 

Sweet Spot Enamel Stickers from the We R Family collection made the perfect little dots in the leaves.

For the second card, I went back to the 4x6 size and cut pattern paper to fit the background. A 3x4 card adds dimension, and a nice circle cut out leaves room for the Urban Autumn Metal Badge.

I added some of the We R Family Enamel Stickers on top of the badge. The "together" pennant came from the wood veneers package from We R Family. 

I had fun mixing these two collections for these cards. And using Pinterest is always great to get your crafty mojo going.

Thanks for stopping to see my cards today!

Love these too! What a great idea to use the 3x4 cards on an actually greeting card! (I have many & so pretty! I may just have to hang up some how!)
