So another countdown has begun!  For those of you new here, today marks the beginning of a five-day blogging blitz in which I will share little sneak peeks of the the stamp sets being released on October 15th by Papertrey Ink.  The stamps used in the projects over the next few days will be available to purchase at 12am EST October 15th.  If you want to join the party, there will be some chit chat going on HERE in the Papertrey Forum.

The first set that I am going to introduce you to today is one based on THIS free digital kit.  The set is very conducive to layering, which I just LOVE!  The super fun part is that you can always make the decision to layer or not to layer.

101007_linear_images_aloneHere is a sample using just the linear floral images from the set.  A really artsy feel.

101007_linear_images_partial_paintOne of my favorite things to do with these types of images is stamp with dye ink and use a water pen to trace all the lines. 

101007_linear_only_watercoloredIt creates a really soft effect.

101007_solid_onlyHere is a sample using just the solid floral images from the set.  I think this is more organic looking.

101007_linear_solid_combinedAnd of course, the two combined.  Lots of detail & depth.

101007_trio When you compare the three different results, they all look SO different.  It is such a treat to be able to get so many looks from one stamp set.

Here are the finished projects using the above samples:

I wanted to note that most likely my post tomorrow will not be up until mid afternoon.  I need to prepare tonight for a television spot I have on a local mid-day talk show tomorrow.  For those of you who are local, it is Talk of the Town, Nashville WTVF, channel 5 @ 11:30am.  Wish me luck!

EDITED TO ADD: We have been made aware of the grammar error in the sentiment used on this project.  I take complete responsibility for the mistake and am blushing from head to toe!  LOL!  Manufacturing has already been completed, so we are having the correct sentiment manufactured separately.  I will provide more details as they become available.  Other than this small error, I promise that this set is amazing, and once you see it in it’s entirety, it will be love at first sight!
