This week's challenge, over at the Papertrey Ink blog, is to create your own custom stamped border. Laurie Willison is hosting and this is one of the very cute cards that she created ...
I found it a little bit challenging to come up with something, but I finally did this afternoon. I've been super busy with baseball and soccer and grandsons and I'm just not feeling very creative. But I'm happy with my card, and my MISTI. The Bold Bouquet Anniversary set was just made for the MISTI. I used to find it frustrating to stamp this large bouquet, because it was inevitable that towards the end of all that stamping, something would go wrong, but my favourite tool eliminates most of that stress.
The flower and stamped border are from Bold Bouquet and the sentiment is from Bitty Bouquets.
Inks used are all PTI - Smokey Shadow, Hawaiian Shores, Harvest Gold, Raspberry Fizz.
Earlier in the week, I stamped a Nostalgic Notions card for Make It Monday, but I felt I wasn't making it much of a challenge for myself, since the scalloped die really is a border :) But I do love that border! And, for the first time ever, I stamped an entire background using Polka Dot Basics II, thanks to MISTI, of course.
Inks used: PTI Smokey Shadow, Limeade Ice; Versamark; Fresh Ink Sugar; Memento New Sprout; Hero Arts Raspberry Jam; Ranger Archival Magenta Hue. Zing white opaque embossing powder was used for the Bold Bouquet Anniversary sentiment.
