Papertrey & Stampin' Up!

Oh My! I am in love with the "Faux Ribbon" set from Papertrey Ink. Nichole's Designs are amazing! The other night I knew I wanted to make some sympathy cards and so I grabbed the sentiment from the "Mixed Messages" set (also PTI) and then I grabbed the branch from Stampin' Up! Embrace Life set and stamped it in Blue Bayou and water colored it in. Next i couldn't decide what to do, so this is where the Faux Ribbon came in. I was flippin' through my cd cases and saw that set. I have had it for some time now and have not really inked it up much because, well I don't know why. Quite possibly because I have too many stamps...JUST KIDDING!! There is no such thing.

Anyway I first stamped the thick solid linear line in soft sky at the top & bottom and then I used the super skinny line and stamped in the middle of the soft sky, using Blue Bayou. I already knew that I wanted to stamped the sentiment over to the side so I added the holes and ribbon. Then I attached a strip of Blue Bayou Prints DSP (SU) and then scalloped my edges and attached using dimensionals! I was very pleased with the result. i hope you have enjoyed peeking in today!

Supplies: Cardstock, Mixed messages Stamp set, Faux Ribbon Stamp Set all from PTI, Blue Bayou DSP, soft sky, blue bayou ink & embrace life stamp set from Stampin' Up! Ribbon from sheer creations.

Going to make some more cards I think, Stay tuned I may be back later to share my Maya road tins that just arrived!!
