Designing with Papertrey

It's day two of the Papertrey Ink anniversary celebration!  And today is the day of the stamp designer!  What a thrilling experience it has been to design stamps and see them used by you!  Makes me even more excited to get this next year rolling.  :)
 
In honor of this 6th year celebration, each of the Papertrey Ink stamp designers have designed a freebie image.  Nichole Heady has put them together for your use in PDF form, found on her blog.
 
As I was doing the dishes, while taking a brake from composing this blog post, I caught myself singing a little song. And for the life of me could not figure out why it was stuck in my head or how it got there. Sure enough, I started writing again and it hit me... duh! it's the card silly. Anyways.. this is the freebie image circle I created...
It features a fun little love phrase (perfect for V-day, weddings, anniversary's or just love in general) and a sweet blush to melon berry ombre effect.  It's just too cool for words and looks a lot better in person.
I punched the ombre circle using a 1 3/4" punch and then punched a half circle from melon berry pattern paper using a 2" punch.  Attached both with dimensional adhesive.  Just a note:  Before attaching the punched pieces I scored 5 lines along the bottom edge of the card front.  It's much easier to see if you click on the photo for a close up.  :)  Then finished the card off with a hand cut heart, cut from some American Crafts glitter tape.
 
Well, that's it from me.  Don't forget to stop by Nichole Heady's blog to get yourself your very own copy of these images.
 
Later!

  10. LOVE this. I hope to see much more with this style. There are some trends that I love right now that I can't quite find the right stamps for at PTI, and I'm hopeful that your design will help fill that gap.
