More PaperTrey, Ink goodness

If you remember from Sunday's post, PaperTrey, Ink is the sponsor for this week at Card Postioning Systems blog. Do you know that saying, "I have fallen and I can't get up"? Well, as stamper knows that saying this way, "I have started stamping and I can't stop"!!! These stamps are fun and there are so many different kinds of things you can do with them so I just set out to create some more examples.
If you take a look at the border stamps that I have used to create my backgrounds, you will see that they aren't very large but because they are clear and you attach them to a clear acrylic block, it is pretty easy to position them. That is how it is then pretty easy to create a larger piece because you can line them up.
The flower on the above card was from a different set of stamps by PaperTrey, Ink but I so love this sunflower and it seemed to fit well here.

This houndstooth circle stamp is probably my favorite out of all of them. I stamped it with black and embossed it so the black was more intense and then these were just punched out with a scallop circle punch.
If you look closely, you can see the subtle background that was created with the tone on tone stamping over the yellow paper.
Again, with one of the border stamps, I created a larger background piece and that was accented with red Stickles in the dots.
The circle was stamped with black on the green paper, I colored the flower and leaves with copic markers.
Now this card represents the fourth, different border stamp in this same set. Again, you can see that it is pretty easy to line these up. I colored the dots in this one with a red Copic marker.
The circle stamp was stamped with black ink and embossed. That makes the black portions more intense and then the background was colored with a red Copic marker.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
The basic supplies to these cards are the clear stamps that were provided by PaperTrey, Ink and most of the papers were also cardstocks that they offer in wonderful colors.
