Stitched Sentiments

Yep, the Papertrey Ink November release has now come to an end.  But a few of us design team members still have a couple more projects up our sleeves.  As previously mentioned, Dawn McVey, Danielle Flanders and I received a portion of our release products a little late in the game.  So we were unable to participate in last Tuesday's Stitched Sentiments group challenge. 
But we are back today to share...
First up, a simple yet lovely design that utilized the hoop image.  The hoop was die cut from kraft cardstock and stamped with the coordinating image in Versamark ink. 
The center circle was stamped with "may" and then impressed using the Adia impression plate.  I then weaved the sentiment banner under and over the hoop.  Finished the card off with a few buttons and hand trimmed leaves.
Next... another simple design, but with more of a modern look (which I think is a bit unexpected).  I couldn't be more please with the way this card duo turned out. 
I stamped the wreath and sentiment directly onto a white card base with gray ink.
Then popped up a few colorful greetings strips using dimensional adhesive.
Well, there you have it. I hope you've enjoyed!  Remember... everything you've seen today is now available at Papertrey Ink. Now, be sure to see what the other two lovely Ladies have in store for you today...
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  10. That second card reminds me of a sweet card set found at Papyrus in the "cards from Greece" section. Lovely, but still modern with the burst of orange sentiments popped up for an edgy effect. To me you are Modern edgy CAS!
