Sentiment Signs Revisited...

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.  

Sentiment signs

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.
