Girly, You Rock!

This is the card for which I used many of the same supplies as this one. Sort of a matching set. I made it for a friend who was feeling down. Very excited about how it turned out!

I placed all the Distressed Stripes stamps randomly on a block and then stamped the background cardstock (unknown brand--10/$1!). I really liked how the stripes didn't always meet the edge. Kind of gritty... perfectionists would hate it! ;)

I stamped the Pure Poppy flower in the center with Versamark but you can't really tell.

I used white gel pen around the edge of the focal image mat, white ink around the red flower, green ink around the white sentiment flower and 5 little rhinestones around the front for some perfect finishing touches!

{Supplies--all Papertrey Ink unless otherwise specified}
  • Cardstock: green (unknown), Pure Poppy, Hawaiian Shores, Stamper's Select
  • Patterned Paper: Beautiful Blooms
  • Stamps: Signature Greetings, For the Graduate, Distressed Stripes, Beautiful Blooms II (on the Pure Poppy flower in the center)
  • Dies: Mat Stack 1, Beautiful Blooms #2
  • Ink: Versamark, Tuxedo Black, Simply Chartreuse, Versamagic Cloud White
  • Other tools: white gel pen (not PTI), rhinestones (happen to look like Hawaiian Shores! but they're from the dollar store)

Nice! I love the way you brought the colors of the paper into the flower in the middle. Looks terrific!

Love the sentiment! Amazing how just a few changes can produce such a different card! Great job!
