Sending a Happy Hello

This is the 3rd card from the Everyday Classic stamp set that I will be giving away this week, I wanted to show just how versatile the stamp set is and also give the lucky winner some ideas on how it can be used.
Toady's card is stamped in black versafine ink the main image is cut out using Nestabilities circles one plain white and one scalloped in black card.
The tiny tea cups are stamped directly onto the base card, then a polka dot paper then another layer using the swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder, then the black ribbon tied in a knot then the main image on top fixed with foam pads.


A close up picture of the Tea cup and sentiment stamp, one of the many things I love about Papertrey Ink stamps is the clarity you get with all of them, even the stamped words come out crisp and clean every time.




Attention to detail.... Each of the main images in the stamp set has a younger sibling a Mini Mo if you like! or in sensible talk a miniature replica,
In this card it is a miniature tea cup stamped 3 times along the bottom edge of the card.

Yet another beautiful card. B & W works so well. This card could be sent to lots of friends for lots of occassions. Question: do you stamp the image before or after it's cut out? Thanks Debbie M.

This is beautiful. I always struggle how to use stamp sets in this style and tend to stick to animals and people - it's lovely to get some inspiration.

A true classic in black & white and with your attention to detail (i.e. the "mini mo" cups @ the bottom) it's perfection! I'll continue to check back this week (now that I have a computer again) for the treasured stamp give-away; someone truly will be lucky to have this fabulous PTI set!!!

Another beautiful card, Jak- love the monochrome look and that MS Flourish edger punch - just adds that chic finish to the design.

Hurray for classic black and white polka dots! And I love the idea of having a "mini" version of each stamp. So many fun ways to design with this.
