My little creative heart is full today as I write this post. I've received so many wonderful messages and comments in excitement for my new products that are being released this month through Papertrey Ink! THANK YOU! I will be posting several projects up until the 15th of this month... when everything will be available for sale. (Right at midnight EST/9pm PST)
Off we go to the good stuff now!
This first card uses all but the rocking chair image from Chair-ished AND the Overstuffed chair line only image from On My Couch.
This really gives you a nice little peek at all the chairs. I love how they look all stamped together as a background! Can you guess which chair from Chair-ished is just like one I have in my home? There is the Retro Chair, The Cushion Back Chair, the kitchen table Chair, the Wingback and the rocking chair (not in this photo).
I am so pleased with how this Chair Die from the On My Couch Die set turned out! Such a polished and smooth look! I used a Zva Creative crystal flourish to frame it a bit. A sweet and simple card!
Sweet and simple is sort of the theme for today! :)
Here is a simple Argyle card using some of the individual images from A Little Argyle as well as the new Argyle Impression plate!
I say it all the time...but here I go again... People inspire me. Not their projects, THEM! I was reflecting back at my last CHA and how neat it was to see so many people. I had a flash in my memory of none other then Jessica Witty! She was wearing the cutest outfit with these colors! Here she is with Anabelle O. and I. Can you believe that I can't remember where I put my purse sometimes , and I, on more than one occasion, absentmindedly put something in the fridge that doesn't belong there ... oh, like the box of cereal but I can remember an OUTFIT from 3 months ago? Sheesh. LOL!
Can you see the Jessica-ish vibe going on here? Hmmm... Miss Anabelle looks pretty inspiring too!
I used the Largest Diamond shape with the largest dashed X image for the Lemon tart argyle and the Medium Diamond image for the Smoky Shadow ones.
This card also shows a full length of the vertical side of the Argyle impression plate. I love how the impressed portions have a sharp line while the paper that isn't is a little rounded. I turned out just as I had hoped when I designed it!
16 is a big number around here lately. My oldest daughter just turned 17 and my 2nd oldest is 15 1/2. So, we have a lot of girly friends that are hitting this milestone and one fast approaching her own. I need quick, easy and mass producible sweet 16 cards. AND A LOT OF THEM!
This simple pattern arrangement makes for a visually pleasing card too. See the visual triangles with the Hibiscus Burst elements. You can see the solid medium X image over the white diamond image!
Soft Stone and any pink color is an amazing combination! (and oh-so retro 80's.) This would EASILY work for a guy by just switching up the colors (pink to blue or green.) Dawn's Top Ten additions set provides several other word choices too!
I hope you have had some fun with these simple cards today. Simple WOWs used to be extremely hard for me and now they are my favorite!
BTW... did you see that the latest issue of Paper Crafts Magazine has a little section on the popularity of Chair stamps! (Pg. 24) So exciting!
Thanks again for all your excitement over these new products and... THANKS for poppying by friends!
