Good morning and happy June! Summer is here along with all of the busyness that involves. Here's hoping I stay sane (that implies that I am currently sane, not sure that's completely accurate). :-)
It's a new month and that means the Papertrey Ink Sr Team is here to bring you some new inspiration using an older stamp set. This month we're featuring Sentiment Signs. It's a workhorse of a set and looks great paired with just about anything else from your collection.
First off I created a set of quick and easy enclosure notecards. I used the scalloped card base from the Don't Forget to Write kit cut from watercolor as my base. I stamped the more all occasion sentiment from the Sentiment Signs set onto each using waterproof black ink. Then I used some reinkers and a water brush to brush over just one line of each of the sentiments on each card.
I made a set of four and added one of the flower clusters from Bitty Bouquets to each. Super quick and fun!
Next I have a bright, colorful birthday card. I used the birthday sentiment from the Sentiment Signs set to create a background for some colorful balloons. I used the same watercolor idea as the notecards above, except this time I highlighted every line with a different color to create a striped effect.
The balloons were cut using the Balloon Bash die and then sponged with inks. I added some Balloon Strings diecuts, cut from Soft Stone cardstock. The single "happy birthday" sentiment is from the Keep It Simple: Birthday II set, stamped on the stitched banner from the Tag Sale: Quilted die set. I also added a few stars, which were diecut from a leftover strip of watercolor paper which I watercolored with the same reinkers I used on the sentiments in the background.
Thanks for stopping by today! If you have a moment, you can hop around to the other girls to see what fresh creations they've whipped up using Sentiment Signs...
