Vintage linens...

Today is our third group blog post for Papertrey Ink's July countdown! We are previewing a couple of new stamp sets and dies: Vintage Linens and Embroidered Borders, both of which I loved working with! The new products will be available at Papertrey Ink on 7/15 at 10pm EST.
First, I selected a photo that inspired me. The little flowers caught my eye, especially the blue ones, which you'll see in the second card.

The first card was more simple. I used one of the Vintage Linen papers in the background, then stamped and die cut the flowers to add over the top.
The sentiment is from a new set called Perfect Pairing.


Thinking of You card:
STAMPS: Vintage Linens, Perfect Pairing
INK: New Leaf, Berry Sorbet, Pure Poppy
PAPER: Vintage Linens
DIES: Vintage Linens
OTHER: sequins by Pretty Pink Posh.

The second card uses a few more layers. I stamped the background in black with the outline stamps of the flowers.

"Just Because" is from a new stamp set called Keep It Simple: Just Because. 
The frame is die cut and stamped with Embroidered Borders. Really loved working with these products and have quite a few more ideas to use them with!

Just Because card:
STAMPS: Vintage Linens, Embroidered Borders
INK: New Leaf, True Black, Aqua Mist, Tropical Teal; gray is Soft Granite by Hero Arts
PAPER: white
DIES: Vintage Linens
OTHER: none.

Lovely, lovely cards! Love the white shadow flower stems on your first card. And the flower outlines as your background on the second! Love too the use of grey in your design! Fabulous color combo.

The red flowers on top the white flower paper are the "perfect pairing."
