Hey there! Thanks for joining me for day two of the Papertrey Ink May countdown. I'm back today to bring you more of my new set... Side By Side Sentiments. From the looks of it, it sounds as if some of you are as excited about these set as I am!
Now onto today's creation...
A Fun Idea: Try breaking up the sentiment. The side by side formation allowed me to easily stamp the front portion of the sentiment onto a piece of pattern paper and then the latter portion directly onto the card base. Here's How: I began by temporarily attaching the pattern paper strip into place, so that it laid nice and flush with the card front. Once inked, I precisely (while looking through the acrylic stamp from directly above) stamped the sentiment.After the ink dried I stapled a bit of twine into place and simply tied it into a knot. Here's A Note: Working with this particular hemp twine, since it has a bit of a waxy finish to it, holds a bit of curl after winding it around a pencil. Makes for the prefect twist and slight curl. Along the outer left edge is a bit of impressed detailing, this was created using the Mehndi Medallion impression plate. I then finished the card off with a heart circle (from Bountiful Banners) and an enamel dot.
Well, that concludes today's look at Side By Side Sentiments. Just remember... this stamp set will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning May 15th. In the mean time, I'd love to know what you think, so please feel free to share!
