Hey there crafters! I hope all is well with you. I’m currently in the middle of a pretty killer headache, so I’m just hoping this will do away soon. I have lots of cool ideas going through my tired little brain, including what I think will be the next video series (kind of like No-Stress Distress Inks). I don’t want to give too mcuh away as I’m not allowing myself to start the series until after classes are over in three weeks, but I can tell you that it will have to do with some of my absolutely favorite stamps. :) More on that later!
Anyways, I wanted to share two different cards I made with the new Modern Basics stamp set from Papetrey Ink. It was designed by Maile Belles, so I new I would love it. I got it out to play for the first time the other night and looooved playing with it. It’s crazy the different looks you can get with just this one stamp set. Here’s the first card:
This card uses the set in a more “traditional” way by sticking to a grid pattern. Oh, and don’t you love those ink colors? That’s Jenni Bowlin Studios (JBS) ink in Chewing Gum, Chicken Feed and Lemon Drops. Love those colors!
Here’s the second card. This uses the little anntenae included in the set. I love that Maile has really set up this set for such versatility. Love these cute, modular butterflies!
Supplies: Cardstock – Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream, Spring Moss, Lavender Moon and Plum Pudding), Stamps – Papertrey Ink (Modern Basics), Ink – Ranger (JBS Ink in Stick Candy, Soap Powder and Spice Tin), Pearls – Queen & Co., Baker’s Twine – The Twinery (Honeydew), Corner Rounder – WRMK.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little peek of one stamp set two ways. I can’t wait to use this set more and think it was definitely worth the $24 price tag. (Do you hear that? Those are the ~enable~ vibes I’m sending you. Hehe.)
Oh! And I’m about to place an order from Simon Says Stamp. I know you like to be enabled, so I’m sharing the things I’m super excited about. Here are some of the things I’m dying to try out.
- My Favorite Things Four Point Frame Die-namics and Stamp Set
- Kaiser Craft Bubble Wrap Texture Clear Stamp
- Sweet Threads Hero Arts Stamps – CG307 Spirals and CG309 Sweet Threads Set
- Lawn Fawn Fanciful Frames
So that’s it for today! I’m going to go rest again and hopefully get rid of this massive headache. Headaches make me complainy, and I hate being complainy! So let’s end on a fun note… If I was to say, do a feature on my blog about different stamp companies, what companies would you love to see featured? Leave me some comments to help give me ideas! :)
