Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop! Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is “Love”! We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!
We’ve got a gorgeous image-only stamp set called the Decorative Borders set. Just a photopolymer set – no dies, no punch – that stamps lovely floral border and corner images. I very simply paired it with a sentiment from the Something Fancy Set, embossed it all with the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder and called it a day! Take a look-see:
See? Easy peasy!!
I started by stamping the pretty corner image from the Decorative Borders set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink in the corner of a Basic White panel. I love the sweet images in this set!
I colored the image with my Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends.
With Decorative Borders being an image-only set, I needed a sentiment and…what better set than the Something Fancy stamp set?? I love the mixed-font sentiments – both the look of them AND the messages! 🙂
In the bend of the corner, I stamped the Something Fancy sentiment in Flirty Flamingo ink.
With the stamping and coloring done, I embossed the panel in the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. Then I used Stampin’ Seal + to adhere the panel to a Basic Black cardstock mat.
I adhered a sweet Dragonfly Trinket (I love these so much!) with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!
For the inside, I stamped the same corner image on a piece of Basic White cardstock and colored it with the Stampin’ Blends.
I used Stampin’ Seal + to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Flirty Flamingo card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the same corner image on the front…
…and I stamped a second pretty image from Decorative Borders on the envelope flap and colored it with the Stampin’ Blends.
Et Voila! I have long been a fan of border stamps, so I tend to buy them all when they come out. SOMEtimes, they don’t – for ME – live up to the expectation I have for them in my head. THIS one – the Decorative Borders set – is NOT one of those! The images are gorgeous – and sweet to color with our Stampin’ Blends – or..try a Watercolor Pencil – or..a Blender Pen and ink refill! Or…just stamp it and don’t color it at all! It’s beautiful no matter what! You’ll want a sentiment with it – so…be sure to take a gander at the Something Fancy set! So good!
