People Like You – Trio Tuesday!

The People Like You Stamp is found in the Celebrate the Everyday Catalog (aka Spring Catalog) and at $15.95 I think it’s such great value. Dress it up or make it clean-cut and simple, either way it looks fabulous. The sentiment as you may have already noted co-ordinates with the Decorative Label Punch.

For my first card I have even stamped it onto Core’dinations Cardstock with Black StazOn for a wonderful effect. Sadly you’ll often find the textured cardstock doesn’t take to the Classic Inks nearly as well as the StazOn does.

For the next card I was experimenting with stamping simply the top flower portion of the stamp ensuring the stamp could be more versatile. (I even attempted a 3-layer card with just that flower alone but…)

People Like You - Very Vanilla Cherry Cobbler - JIF

For something extremely clean-cut yet colorful I stamped People Like You in Black StazOn to be assured of a crisp image then simply framed each stamp in a different color. These four cards are all now housed in a box made with the super-cool Envelope Punch Board!

People Like You - Color Collection - JIFFYI though – it’s only available in wood and comes in a half-size wood mount box which always makes me chuckle to myself. I know, get a life huh?! 🙂

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

Gingham Garden Butterflies

When I first saw today’s Mojo Challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do. This is today’s sketch for Mojo 331.

Mojo 331 SketchOf course what I created was something completely different to what I had in mind. Not that I’m unhappy with what I achieved, it’s simply NOTHING like what I had in mind. This is it…

Mojo 331 - Gingham Butterflies - JIF

For the Decorative Dots Embossing I used White Vellum then cut a banner from the Gingham Garden DSP which was lined with some Primrose Petals Cardstock. A strip of Primrose Petals 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon lies diagonally between the embossing and the cardstock.

Mojo 331 - Gingham Butterflies - Hello

The square of cardstock to go under the sentiment I chose in So Saffron then stamped in So Saffron Classic Ink with a stamp from the Sale-a-Bration You’re Lovely set. The stamp is a clean set of four little flower-like images but I stamped it randomly albeit always horizontally. The butterflies come from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits. Both the butterflies and the Hello sentiment from the Label Something Stamp Set have been edged with Dazzling Details.

Mojo 331 - Gingham Butterflies - Candy Dots

Across the top of the banner I’ve added some Tempting Turquoise Candy Dots (I thought I was adding Island Indigo but wasn’t if close, ha)just for a little something extra.
