Southwestern Style

 Hi there! Welcome back for day two of the May Papertrey Ink countdown.  

I am so excited to feature my newest set again today!  Southwestern Style is a versatile pattern building set.  Build focal points, borders and backgrounds with ease.   With this set a multitude of combinations and color combos are ready at your fingertips.  Mix and match to your heart’s desire.  These pieces were designed so that they could nestle together making it easy to incorporate multiple colors seamlessly.  Southwestern Style is a great basic to add to your stamp collection!

Let me show you a few mixing and matching ideas.  Check it out!...
This card gives you a good sense of the size/length of these pattern builders.  Each of the 7 borders measure approximately 4' long. They are short enough to create a focal point, but they can also easily be stamped again to lengthen the pattern and create an all-over background.
This card utilized 4 of the 7 borders included in this stamp set. With Southwestern Style you also get 4 go-to sentiments.
Also included in Southwestern Style are 3 additional images.  Two were showcased on yesterdays card and the third is featured here.
It's randomly stamped in black on top of the lavender moon colored borders. If you look closely you can see the sort of ombre effect effect that's built into the border stamp here.  
Just a couple of these patterns can really go a long way.  I've build a heavily layered card stock edge along the right side of this card (using kraft, gold and silver cardstocks), to balance out the "Cheers to You" sentiment it need a bit more visual weight.  So I've stamped two of the borders alongside it, to even things out.
You may have noticed a shimmery theme going on with all of my Southwestern Style cards so far.  From the use of gold and silver cardstock, silver sequins, gold ink, and even metallic staples.  It's a cool effect that goes real well with the sort of edgy vibe this stamp set can give off. Totally what I've been into these days!

Here's a quick rundown of what you get in the Southwester Style stamp set.  Included are...

  • 7 borders
  • 3 additional images
  • 4 sentiments
All are made to coordinate beautifully. 

Well, that concludes today's look at Southwestern Style. Just remember... all that you have seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning May 15th
