Sneak Peek...Pieces and Patterns

I cannot explain it but sometimes I see a stamp set that really isn't "me" but I cannot resist it.  That is exactly how the Pieces and Patterns stamp set and coordinating Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper came to live with me in my teeny stamp room.    Did I have a plan for these 2 products?  I wish I could tell you that I knew exactly what I was going to do with them but that would be a big ole fib. 

Pieces and Patterns

I especially love these 2 designs from the Pick a Pattern DSP.  These silly, whimsical animals just make me smile.   This is a quick and easy card to make. The DSP really does all the work.  I  hope it looks like the bear is sending you a hello. This was not planned but it just worked out.   I love this sentiment. Here's a tip, I used the Basic Black Archival ink to stamp the sentiment and the coverage was perfect.  I tried the Memento Tuxedo black pad first but the coverage was not as good.  I also ran a Basic Black marker around the edge of the circle to cover up the white edge.  

Are you wondering how I made the giant scallop edge?  It is a thinlit die from the Seasonal Layers thinlit.  What is brilliant about this thinlit is that it is longer than 5-1/2"  so you can comfortably cut out a 5-1/2"card front and line the thinlit up perfectly.  Meaning perfect scallops.

Did you notice the pretty Crushed Curry ribbon?  This is a new ribbon called 3/8" Mini Chevron ribbon.  It comes in Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive.  It is soft and easy to tie.  Winner!

Hope you liked this Pieces and Patterns sneak peek.  This is a fun new stamp set and DSP that will certainly bring a smile to your face!
