Paper Trey Fun!




I needed a few cards to send out so I grabbed my new Paper Trey Green Thumb set and started creating. These two cards are paired with Daisy D's new patterned paper that was left out from my last project(typical!). I think this paper gives the cards a kind of vintage kitchen look, which I love. Nichole's images are some of the easiest to work with because each little element is a separate stamp. I love that you don't have to color with markers or using masking to get lots of colors on one combined image. I also love that you can bend the stems to get an assorted bouquet, an added benefit of acrylic stamps (that are growing on me!). I'm gonna have to go stamp more of these as I can't just send them off without have more on hand!

Tip of the day: Images like a flower pot, or the watering can on my card, look great when they are *grounded*. That means that the images aren't floating around in space, they are sitting on a surface. You can ground images by using several methods: 1)use a fine tip marker and draw a ground line, 2)use a brush tip marker or paint brush and scribble a ground line with a light color, or 3) use a shadow stamp like I did on my watering can card.

The particular stamp I used is an oval shape made by A Muse. I use it ALL the time. For my card, I masked the watering can, inked up the oval stamp and then stamped over the watering can. I think it adds a ton of detail and an element of depth to my card. If you don't have an oval stamp, you can also punch a reverse oval and sponge over a masked image. I believe Nichole did this one of her cards on her blog.

Love the cards, love the blog, LOVE LOVE LOVE your stamping space! I am about to get a bigger space in my house, and it's great to see what you have done! My ideas are very similar! I want a cutting station, a sewing station, and CB station, etc...all readily available. I can't wait! And I already have some of the storage cubes from Target, they are not assembled yet, but I OWN them! LOL
You are terrific! Thanks again!
