Welcome! I had hoped to get several cards made Thursday and Friday, but my husband reminded me that he needed my tax information immediately if not sooner. I have two business trips coming up back-to-back in April, so there was really no time to procrastinate any longer. Ughhh--no fun! Thankfully, my part is now finished, so maybe I can get back to snatching some creative moments. :-}
I was feeling "stamp-y" this weekend and stamped several backgrounds to cut apart and mix and match, so you'll probably see these again later this week when I get back to my little backgrounds stack. I had received the Papertrey Ink Anniversary set Pretty Peonies almost a month ago, but I hadn't had a chance to play with it earlier. It's such a pretty set! While you can't purchase Pretty Peonies, many PTI customers have earned the set. (If you need a substitute, you could use the In Bloom set, Rosie Posie, or many other floral sets. Experiment!)
Stamps that I used included Background Basics: Twinkle and Background Basics: Wrought Iron, in addition to flowers and a sentiment from the Pretty Peonies set. I also used a snippet of patterned paper from the Dearest Jane Collection. Inks were Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, Spring Moss, and Chamomile Distress ink. I used Kraft, VIntage Cream, and Raspberry Fizz cardstock, as well as Kraft twill for my ribbon.
That's it for tonight. Thanks for stopping by!
