I recently purchased Technique Tuesday's Build a Paisley stamp set. When I sat down to work with it earlier today, I didn't do a very good job of placing the paisleys on the paper -- I think they were too far apart. I knew that Debbie Olson, over at Thinking Inking, had posted a lot of cards with Stampin Up's Polka Dot and Paisleys set. So, I hopped on over to her blog and browsed through her archives and voila, there was this card that Debbie had made with the Technique Tuesday set! Beautiful, isn't it? This was good news because I could study how she placed the paisleys. But, I was a bit taken aback. I had NO memory of seeing this card when I bought this set of stamps -- until I saw Debbie's card. Hmm. I wonder who else is controlling my pocketbook??? LOL So, if I ever post anything that looks a lot like something you've posted, it is unintentional and I ask that you let me know right away. In the meantime, here's the card I made today -- after being inspired by Debbie's. Oops! That's not the card -- that's my "baby" -- happy to be on Spring Break from school. I decided to "stylize" him for my blog. Now, here's the card -- How I made this card: Supplies used: So Saffron, Brocade Blue and Certainly Celery cardstock and classic inks by Stampin Up. Sarah Designer Paper by Stampin Up; Technique Tuesday Build a Paisley and Papertreyink Paper Tray stamp sets: SU large oval punch; SU Bluebird grosgrain ribbon and Soft Subtles Eyelets (set with the Crop-a-Dile). Punched the holes using Stampin Up's Craft Took Kit.
