Good morning and welcome to this week's Papertrey Ink Throwback Thursday feature. This week Heather and I are revisiting Irresistibly Ikat. I adore the richness of textiles, so pulling out this set for today was such a joy. These images come together to create patterns ranging from bright and feminine to subdued and even masculine. I decided to try the latter; creating a simple print with a pop of metallic to add a touch of luxury.
I started today's card by stamping the large "V" shape using heat embossed gold and Dark Indigo inks. A little tip: by flipping the "V" 180º you can create extra large chevrons. It's a really cool, bold look. Next, I splattered some gold watercolor onto a Dark Indigo panel and adhered it to the card base with foam tape once it had dried.
Then I die cut the "thanks" from the original Wet Paint Cuts Collection and smooshed it in the VersaMark pad before sprinkling on gold embossing powder. I did that twice to get nice, smooth coverage. I die cut a couple of additional sentiments and then adhered them together to give depth.
Next, I heat embossed the rest of the sentiment using white powder on vellum. I trimmed out the sentiment and adhered it to the Dark Indigo panel with vellum tape. I finished up by adhering the "thanks" to the card front atop the vellum strip. Isn't it great how that gorgeous ikat pattern pulls the whole thing together? I love it!
Thank you so much for joining me today. Make sure to pop over and see what Heather has to share with you, too. Have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend, everyone!
Good evening, friends! I had a little spare time today, so I thought I would whip up a card to play along with this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. Here's the inspiration photo that Nichole shared over on her blog:
Aren't those vases dreamy? I wanted to try and recreate a similar feel on my card today.
I began by using the pint jar die to create a stencil. I simply die cut it from a piece of vellum and used it like I would any other stencil. Next, I used one of the paint stripes from Brushed Off to add a ground under my jar. I inked the image in Stormy Sea and then stamped off twice before stamping on my cardstock panel.
Then, I used the Cutting Garden stamp set to create a flower arrangement. I inked the blooms with Pale Peony and then sponged on a bit of Summer Sunrise to give their centers a touch of variation. I used cut up coaster to act as foam adhesive and give my blooms some depth. Then I stamped my sentiment using Stormy Sea and adhered my panel to a Sweet Blush card base that I'd sponged with one of the Modern Background Stencils. I rounded the corners and sprinkled on a few sequins to finish it off.
Well, that's all for me today. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop. See you soon! Supplies:
