I think the thing I find the most challenging about blogging is coming up with a title! Mine are pretty unoriginal, I know.... ;)
Today, I'm posting a couple of cards and a layout that I made using this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Stamping on Patterned Paper. The two cards each include a Verve stamped mat stack diecut that Luanne sent me.
I used Teresa Collins (blue & yellow) and Crate (grey herringbone) patterned paper and Papertrey Ink cardstock (stamper's select white, soft stone), buttons (harvest gold, aqua mist, soft stone), button twine (rustic white), stamps (happy trails) and dies (mat stack 1, love lives here).
For this card, I used Lily Bee patterned paper, an SEI decorative brad and Papertrey Ink cardstock (stamper's select white, soft stone, vellum), stamps (text style I) and dies (mat stack 4, lovely layers).
Here's a close-up of my stamping on the patterned paper, as well as the flower:
And, lastly, here's the layout I made. Once again, I made a collage in Picasa3 and had it printed out as an 8x12 photo.
I used American Crafts cardstock (12x12), Crate Paper patterned paper and Papertrey Ink cardstock (stamper's select white), stamps (harvest berries) and dies (script alphabet).
Thanks for looking!
