Introducing Floral Sketches & Calligraphy Classics...

Today we are previewing two new stamp sets by Papertrey Ink, Floral Sketches and Calligraphy Classics! These will be available for purchase on 5/15 at 10pm EST at Papertrey Ink. On my first set of tags, the color scheme was inspired by this pin.
The Floral Sketches stamp set was used for the flowers, and the sentiments are from Calligraphy Classics. I love, love the big font - great for a beautiful focal point for tags and cards! See the branches? Those are actually veins for the larger leaf in the floral set. They reminded me of the branches from the inspiration piece.

The tags are cut out with the Tag Sale: Quilted die.

About the stamping: the flowers are dipped in Lovely Lady ink, then the edges dipped in Pure Poppy, then I stamped the second step of the flower (outline) in Scarlet Jewel. The tiny flowers are stamped in Fine Linen and Classic Kraft (outline) inks. The leaves are Enchanted Evening with white embossed veins and the branches are stamped in Stormy Sea.
