I had SOOOO much fun making this paper and these cards. I want to show you the paper first.
That paper started out as a piece of PTI Rustic White! I used quite a few colors and stamps to turn it into this! I started with the "Distressed Stripes" stamp set and used PTI Sweet Blush, Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores, Summer Sunrise & Spring Rain inks. Then, I also added Jumbo Java & Pixie Dust VersaMagic and Palette colors Bordeaux, Chartreuse & Orangerie. After I stamped that, I stamped a leaf image from "Turning a New Leaf" with Hawaiian Shores around the edges. Then, I used a swirl from "Fancy Flourishes" in Vintage Cream ink and stamped on top of all that, also staying around the edges. And, wa-la!! I love the end result.
I made 3 cards using this one small piece of paper. I'll share my favorite of them with you today (and yes, this is my 2nd post for today!).
I am so happy with how this turned out. I love, love all the color in it! The buttons on the side of the label are chocolate brown but I realize that it's hard to tell from this photo.
Here's a closeup of the stamping so you can see a little more of the detail. I used a scalloped stamp from Hero Arts to kiss off some of the ink in a few of the largest solid stripes. You can see this a little on the bottom bordeaux strip.
I also had to share the back with you! I did something fun and stamped polka dots in Hawaiian Shores ink all across the back. I thought it added a fun detail! I also stamped my custom designed-by stamp on there too (but don't look TOO close because I smudged it a little).
Thank you so much for stopping by! Be sure to check back tomorrow and I'll share the 2nd of the cards I made using this paper. I'd love to hear your comments!
