Hi everyone! I am super excited about today’s project and post. Today I’m a guest hopper on the Paper Pretties November Release Blog Hop. If you’d like to start the hop you can click the hop link and if you are already hoppin’ you should be on your way her from the GORGEOUS and PRECIOUS Pam Varnell’s blog.
I’m a HUGE fan of Paper Pretties and love all of the wonderful new things Heather has done since she took over the store!
In case you haven’t heard yet, Paper Pretties has a BRAND NEW owner. Now located in Madison, WI, we are so pleased to offer you amazing customer service, faster and cheaper shipping, and a wider variety of stamping “must have” products to go along with all of our new stamps!! Basic Grey, Kaisercraft, Copic and more! All orders are shipped within 24 hours.
For this hop Heather sent me the GORGEOUS Best Friends stamp set. It is toooo cute and a great deal! You get one gorgeous image drawn by Victoria Case and 6 sentiments that can be mixed and matched to say just the right thing. My daughter fell in love with it the moment she saw it and INSISTED that I stamp her some so she could make a couple of cards. Once I got a chance to ink some up for myself 😉 this is what I came up with:
I stamped the image onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I was REALLY impressed with the quality of the image and stamp. It stamped perfect the first time and all the other times I used it for my daughter. I colored the image with Prismacolors and OMS to coordinate with Cosmo Crickets Mitten Weather designer paper. Once I got everything laid out just right I sponged everything with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and a little bit of Pale Lilac Memento Ink.
If you haven’t had a chance to check out the brand new Paper Pretties store you really should. Heather is just amazing to work with and all of her products are top notch!
Your next stop on the hop is the amazing Wendy Hoff!!!
I hope you have a wonderful Friday! I’ll be back tomorrow with another Saturday Sketch. 😀
