Paisley Prints was one of the sets I received for free for attending Convention. At first I wondered about it, but since I've starting using it, I find I really do like it a lot! I have some ideas for using it, not as it is really intended! Isn't that what is great about stamping? Today Selene has a fun sketch for us! I did take some liberties with the sketch to change it up a little. My card came together pretty quickly! Make sure to check out the rest of the Stamping 411 Operators to see what they did this week!
And here is my submission:
I started with the large panel and stamped the Paisley Prints leaves with Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Poppy Parade inks…then I stamped off using Sahara Sand to fill in the empty spaces. I used my Color Spritzer and Old Olive and Sahara Sand markers to add the speckles. I cut up the panel into thirds and layered it on Early Espresso cardstock. I added a panel of Old Olive behind it and wrapped the Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon around to the back. I did a little treatment with the ribbon by gathering it in only the one area and adhering with adhesive. I layered everything on the base card of Cajun Craze.
I stamped the Paisley Prints pumpkin with Cajun Craze on Pumpkin Pie cardstock and cut it out. I colored the stem Early Espresso, then used a tiny sliver of Old Olive to make the curly vine. I layered the pumpkin on a 1 3/4 punched circle of Early Espresso. Finally, I added a Very Vanilla flower designer button that I tied with the 1/8" Taffeta Early Espresso ribbon (LOVE that 1/8 taffeta!) and tucked in a little punched jewelry tag behind the button. The Thanks so much is from Tiny Tags stamp set.
I hope you play along with the sketch this week and upload your creation over on Stamping 411! We love to see what you do!
