I have two Pinterest inspired cards today, both with a lot of white space, bright colors, and minimal layers.
My friend is a big Starbucks coffee drinker...so I was really excited when I found this gift card there today:
Anyway, I made her this card that was featured on the Papertrey Ink blog using the Mighty Oaks stamp set and matching die. I also used a wood grain embossing folder to add texture, which you might see more clearly if you click on the picture for magnification. The swirls were free handed with a silver gel pen.
So here is another one just like it...except for one thing:
The next card is using PTI's older set, Turning a New Leaf. This leaf is the closest I could find that wasn't more of an outline stamp and had a filled in image which made the overall look much more graphic. I masked the image and stamped on Watercolor Paper.
I then used a very old SU! sentiment with the SU! word window and oval scallop punches to basically hide a boo boo. The colors are old olive and navy blue card stock, and the addition of more mustard inks to the olive and navy.
These are not original ideas...though I have added my own changes, the ideas were from the PTI blog.
I am always blessed to have you visit. The coffee pot is on and if you come to sit on my deck, I'm sure we'll have a pooch around to keep you warmed up!
