Love Songs Revisited

the first of the month is now one of the most fun days of the work cycle here at Papertrey Ink due to the fact that it's the day the Senior Design Team looks back on a previously released stamp set and combines it with new products that are available today.  

Love Songs

In preparation for upcoming Valentine's Day activities, parties and treats I thought we would take a look at Love Songs, designed by the talented Lisa Johnson.  This set is full of fun little images to mix and match, not to mention adorable sentiments that use a play on words from many popular love songs.

I thought I would ink up this set again and create a special valentine for David in an untraditional color scheme, since he's not really a pink and red kind of fella!  


I started with the large "love" letters that Lisa included in the set and decided to substitute the "o" for the new circle with heart cut-out die from the Love Lives Here die collection.  To get my placement just right, I placed all of the letters on the block together and used the die itself as a spacer.

Year of Flowers: Mums was stamped with Spring Moss ink behind the "Love" letters in Ripe Avocado.  The die-cut circle was cut from vintage bookprint and sponged around the edges with Spring Moss ink as well.

I die-cut the Double Ended Banners from Kraft cardstock and added one of my favorite sentiments from this set, "P.S. I Love You", using Ripe Avocado ink.  The small heart image is also from Love Songs and after it was added I finished it off with a green rhinestone.


Now, how about some additional projects from the rest of the team!
