September inspiration with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Scrapmatts September inspiration!

As always I try to add different pieces and this month those are a layout and two cards.
My layout is a playful one made with two adorable photos of my 3 years old grand daughter, DCWV products and the most adorable Scrapmatts chipboards and stencils.

Just to show you how much those chipboards and stencils add to your crafts I made this piece as 3 in 1 - it means I made a simple layout, added something to make the second version and added much more to make it as you see it here.

Let me show you Round 1- no Scrapmatts products used.
This is totally same layout, same photos, same papers and so  empty.

So here is version 2- I added some, but not all Scrapmatts pieces, but still left the background as is. I also added the sub- titles using Scrapmatts words.
It is much more interesting, but something was missing.

And here again the last version with  stencilled areas added and more color and all of this was made with some Scrapmatts products only!(and a few flowers as the final  touch).

And now for some close-ups:
All chipboard pieces were painted with DecoArt Fluid acrylics only.

I think that this layout was a perfect example of how a few  great chipboards and some background work can make a simple   layout to a lovely piece of scrapbooking art.

Scrapmatts products used:

My second inspirational piece for September is a card made with DCWV cardstock and Scrapmatts fabulous chipboards.
The " globes" were die cut from patterned cardstock and then I added the similar Scrapmatts chipboards called Bubbles over it the make this " round around world". The circled chipboard was heat embossed with Stampendous mix of embossing powder  and got this white/brown vintage look.
The Bon Voyage sentiment is Scrapmatts  Assorted words and were covered with copper embossing powder.

Scrapmatts chipboards used:
Bubbles 01 CB5131
Assorted words 04 CB4051

And as always I added one more card to my September list.
This card was made with DCWV products and I just added a few Scrapmatts pieces to make it a real " something". The cardstock has copper look, so I heat embossed all Scrapmatts pieces with copper embossing powder.
Also this is just a card I used 4 different Scrapmatts pieces from 3 different packages to make  this card.You can see the list on the bottom and to make a similar card if you wish.

Scrapmatts products used:
Ornate frames 22 CB1220
