'This month's blog hop challenge involves you challenging yourself to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that might be collecting a little dust!'
Lol, I started the challenge on the 16th, but only got two of them done. Then I failed in the photographing of one of them (Snow days are no different than rain days for photographing near as I can tell. It has snowed off an on for the past, well, 77 years, I think.). Today I will show you one that is done, and one still being worked on!
This is a pretty momentous card- does it look clean and simple? I used 2 sets never used before, one sentiment never used before, and stamped directly on to a card from a box of cards never used before! How's that?
It is, of course, Banner Builder, with BABY spelled out with Fresh Alphabet, and the sentiment from Inside and Out Baby. I stamped directly onto the card with Versafine Onyx Black, and the banners are in Memento inks. One try, and I got this perfect card!
Here's the one that is not quite done: Lily of the Valley. The paper is shimmery, but without any sun today, I couldn't get the glitter to show without glare from the flash. The green layer is Leaf Green, a color I have not been using much- but am so happy to have when the right moment comes along! Cut with Nesties, I hand cut the bottom of the stem first, then put it over the edge of the nesty to finish the cut and have the stem stick off the edge. Colored with Copics, and glitter applied to the bottom of the flower cups. Sentiment comes from another unused Year of Flowers set: Sweet Peas.
