My favorite card from the February Papertrey Ink release was actually the very first one I made... and not long after opening my box for the month. Guess I was pretty excited to get going and inspired by the offerings. Nothing beats new supplies right?
This is what the card looks like. Lots of buttons and dots in Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus, Pure Poppy, and Smoky Shadow ink.
And this is how I did it. Actually had the forethought to grab the camera while I was stamping. I created a mask out of lightweight printer paper. You can do this with dies, a ruler, and a craft knife, but I opted for the high tech option--my Silhouette. Had the mask done in a jiffy with the dimensions I wanted. Next, I used my Basic Grey magnetic cutting board to hold the masks in place. Because the paper is so lightweight, I could see my actual card front through it, so I knew I was centered and lined up. Then, it was time to go to town with the stamping. Not only used Studio Style, but filled in the spaces with the single dots from Dot Spot. There is actually an even smaller dot stamp on Polka Dot Basics I if I wanted to take it a step further. Thought it was looking pretty good how it was though. :)
Time-wise, it probably took me 15 minutes, which is totally manageable. Sometimes you just want to stamp. Kinda therapeutic too.
