Seeing Stripes

I am so in love with the new PTI "Distressed Stripes" stamp set!  I don't usually envision a card before I even start working with a set, but this time I had (have) all kinds of ideas rolling around in my head!  I finished 3 cards pretty quickly and I am just very excited about the possibilities that this set lends!  I wanted to share one of the striped cards today.


I just LOVE the new Hawaiian Shores PTI color!  And, paired with Raspberry Fizz...wow!! :)  See that striped background paper?  Yep!  It was made with the new stamp set!  See what I mean by LOTS of possibilites!?


Here's a closeup of how I did the layers and you can see the stripes in a little more detail as well.  I have started using pop dots that are not quite as thick so that it doesn't create quite as much dimension and is easier to mail.  Oh, and the sentiment...LOVE!


I hope you enjoyed today's card!  Thanks for stopping by!  I will be showing you more with this set soon!  Also, I'm going to be playing with my blog a little in the next week or so, so if it looks different, don't be alarmed!  It's getting a little facelift! :)

Supplies
Stamps:  PTI Distressed Stripes, Polka Dot Basics, Star Prints
Paper:  PTI Rustic White, Raspberry Fizz
Ink:  PTI Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores & Palette Noir, PTI Tea Dye Ink
Other:  Fiskars Star Punch, Pop Dots
