Rock and Roll Papertrey



Here is a little set of 4 thank you notes made with the Papertrey Beautiful Blooms set.

A couple of the flowers in this stamp set are coordinated to match the flower Cuttlebug dies - so its very easy to create cut out images.

I tried to keep these cards simple. They are 4 3/4" square with 5" envelopes.

I used the "rock n roll" technique to stamp the images. For this technique, you ink the images in a lighter shade of die ink and then roll the outer edges of the stamp on an ink pad in a darker shade. Its an easy way to get a two tone image.

I rolled and stamped the leaves in both directions, using only part of the leaf stamp for the top. Then I rolled and stamped the flowers on cardstock I had cut with the Cuttlebug die and mounted them on the card with foam tape. The sentiment is from the Papertrey Faux Ribbon set. I used my corner punch to add a little detail to the far corner.

They are not super fancy - but I'm happy with the clean, coordinated look.

On another topic: Big news - justjohanna is releasing even MORE new stamps! Stay tuned for a preview...
