Stitched Sentiments Revisited...

Today the senior design team members at Papertrey Ink are revisiting an older stamp set today to give you new ideas for using it! The stamp set we are using today is called Stitched Sentiments, which you can find HERE in the Papertrey Ink shop! Do you have this set? It's one of my absolute favorites!

I've paired Stitched Sentiments stamps with the Life Is Beautiful dies for these cards today.
To create each of these cards, I've cut a panel of white cardstock, stamped the stem, flowers and sentiments with Stitched Sentiments, then wrapped the panel with twine. I used the Life Is Beautiful dies to cut out the back panel of the butterfly in patterned paper, then the front of the butterfly in vellum.
The stamped panels are then backed with patterned paper. On this teal card, I used paper from the Vintage Linens Patterned Paper Collection.  I actually started with the patterned paper in mind that I wanted to use first, then pulled my colors for the stamping from the papers to get a cohesive design. A few gold sequins add a little sparkle and finish off the card.
Here is a different color combo, but same design. I used the Vintage Linens Patterned Paper Collection again for the back of the butterfly and the floral background paper.
The vellum butterflies are just adhered in the centers.
Last, a soft gray one made with the Stormy Sea + White Patterned Paper Collection and Stormy Sea cardstock and inks. I also used a new ink color called Lovely Lady. This time I stamped the stem above the butterfly instead of below it. Which do you like better?

The Stitched Sentiments stamp set comes with other sentiments also, so you could easily use this design and change out the sentiments to create birthday cards, love and thank you's as well. I think I may make a few card sets with other sentiments and put them up in my shop!

I adore these Danielle! These sure brighten up this icy cold cloudy winter :) ! My favorite is the grey with the pink and red flowers and bright bakers twine, it really pops! The stem/vine going upwards looks amazing! Almost like cherry blossoms! The pink/red card is equally as beautiful, I just LOVE how bright and cheery your designs always are!

Kathy Mc said...

All three cards are beautiful, Danielle. Love your color choices (reminder to use patterned paper more to help me select color combos). My personal preference is the stem beneath the butterfly because it looks more balanced to me. Happy New Year!

Danielle, these cards are lovely and make me think that I could actually use butterflies in the winter. (I have such a by-the-rules personality that even my cards have to be true to the season. Stupid, I know.) The color combinations are fabulous, and the tiny cross stitches added to the butterfly wings is a perfect addition.

My initial reaction to the placement of the stem was that I preferred it stamped on top. By as I looked at the cards a little longer, I realized that I don't have a preference. They look great, just a little different, both ways.

Love the gray version - perhaps because of the stem placement. It frees up the space around the sentiment.
