So many of you were right on when you guessed STRIPES! This little guy is one of my favorites, along with his coordinating "starburst" pieces. These particular images stamp SO crisp. For this project I used fluid chalk inks and they worked perfectly with the layering.
This is an altered lunch bag. I just cut the bag down to a height of 7.5-inches and added my custom patterned paper. The top "flap" is just a 5-inch circle folded in half and adhered on the back. For the front closure I used a Basic Grey self-adhesive magnet (I LOVE these things! They are so FUN to open and close!) I used the Petal Point chalk inks, so it was really easy to ink the "B" in a different color from the rest of the sentiment. This was a quick and easy project that would be so easy to mass-produce! How fun would it be to make these in a variety of colors as well! Just pick two monotone colors and go to town! Doesn’t that sound like fun! I love this particular color palette though, it is so calming & refreshing!
Here are some stamp set details for those of you that have been asking… the set is entitled Butterfly Kisses. It contains 30 images (including SEVEN 2.25-inch wide butterflies- 5 patterned, 1 solid and 1 outline). It will officially go on sale at midnight EST tonight for $24 at our website, www.papertreyink.com. Just as I said last month, we have plenty in stock, but in the case we do sell out, you can still
place your order, with it shipping in 2-4 weeks. Your credit card will
not be charged until your order has shipped. With the unique images contained in this set, it will be worth the wait!
I also need to formally welcome Ellen Hutson on board our Design Team! It has been so tough for me to keep this fact under wraps for the past month! I have always admired her work and her eagerness to teach others. She is such a wonderful model for everyone as both a woman AND a stamper. If you don’t know Ellen (which I highly doubt…EVERYONE knows Ellen! She’s on a first name basis, you know like Madonna or Cher!) you can check out her blog here. she composed a wonderful post about her introduction to our team and her first experience with acrylics. Stop by and welcome her!
This countdown has been a pleasure, can’t wait until the next one! You are going to LOVE what we have coming next, no foolin’ **wink**wink**.
