So, let me get right to it...
First up, I used the Confetti Garland Borders stamp set along with the coordinating dies. Die cut the garlands from white cardstock, stamped the shapes first and then filled in with the polka dot connectors. I chose to stamp in a very non traditional color... black. The pop of color came via the aqua mist cardstock panel and pure poppy sentiment, from 'Tis the Season Sentiments.
I added a little bend when attaching the garlands and then finished the card off with a touch of black rhinestones. My hubby says this card gives off a retro fifties vibe. What do you think?!
Using the stamped images from Confetti Garland Borders stamp set, along with the new Stitching Lines Dies, I created a faux stitched garland look on this one-layer card.
I began by die cutting the stitching holes. Then stamped the stars, hearts and circles in a color combo of ocean tides, pure poppy and soft stone. Stamped the solid line image across the holes to create the look of black thread and then finished the card off with a sentiment from 'Tis the Season Sentiments. This one's got sort of a slight rustic vibe.Lastly, yet another use for those versatile garland building images. This time the snowflake images in a bit more traditional use.
I began by stamping one of the sentiments, included in the 'Tis the Season Sentiments set, three times to mimic the holiday song. Randomly stamped the snowflakes in aqua mist and limeade ice and added a touch of glitter to the centers. Then finished the card off with swirly snowflake paths, drawn by hand using a pencil. I'd say this card gives off a more whimsical feel.
Well, that concludes today's look at Confetti Garland Borders and 'Tis the Season Sentiments. Just remember... these stamp sets and coordinating dies will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning October 15th.
