FTL 124



Good morning all!  I've decided that I need to play along with more challenges in order to get some creative juices flowing.  One of my favorite challenge blogs is Clean & Simple Stamping.  The sketch challenge for this week (FTL124) looked perfect for using Papertrey's Mat Stack 1 set.  I have not inked that up enough.  I love this gorgeous frame stamp.


Hope you all are having a wonderful week!




All supplies Papertrey Ink unless stated

Stamps:  Mat Stack 1, Everyday Button Bits (sentiment)
Paper:  Stampers Select White, Sweet Blush
Ink:  Sweet Blush, Black
Accessories:  black buttons, organdy ribbon (HL), paper piercer, threading water border punch (fiskars)

Sara, this is so pretty! I can't wait to get the mat stack 1 stamp set. I got the die, but not the stamps.

Beautiful CAS card, Sara! Love the colors you used and the little details (pop of buttons & paper piecing).

Very pretty! The piercing in the corner adds just the right balance to the buttons.

Very pretty CAS card! The simple layout and color combo really accentuate the pattern on that mat stack. I've yet to still ink mine (GASP!) and you've just shared a reason to. Great job!
