You've probably arrived from Kim's Stitchin' n Stampin' on Paper Blog in which she showcased the adorable Big Day Stamp Set. What fun projects, Kim!
I'm using the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper today. I think it has a pattern for every occasion....I'll give examples of just a few...
This card uses the Lotus Blossom Stamp Set, and I merely colored the pretty paper with ink using Sponge Daubers for a great resist effect....I also cut along the scalloped edge for interest. This sketch is MOJO378.
Next, I used the new butterfly die (from the Butterflies Thinlits Dies) to cut a butterfly...Then I colored the polka dot dsp with aquapainters for a flowing bit of color in pink, blue and yellow....Oddly, I had used waxed paper to keep the die from sticking very much, and I liked it so well, that I decided to use the waxed paper "trash" instead of vellum as a layer on top of the butterfly....I used more of the polka dot dsp behind the butterfly (I left it white.) and used the diagonal strip as the matte layer.
The colors for this card may seem unusual, but I made it to match our friends' nursery. They are also having twins....so "baby, baby" rather than just baby! on the banners....They are using grey, yellow and brown in the nursery, but I had to add some Soft Sky for the sky to avoid it looking like a Thunderstorm....:) I'll add bows of whatever color they need to be once our friends find out their genders.
Now, let's mosey to Stampin' with Paula and see what she's done with the Simply Wonderful Stamp Set. What a versatile sentiment set!
