today's papertrey ink anniversary announcement from nichole will leave many customers jumping for joy, myself included. maile is back designing stamps! i love her style and have several of her sets in my collection, so i thought i'd flash back to a few cards i created with them. first up, background basics: chevron stripes, a great set that can be used in so many ways. as a patterned focal piece, like in the two examples above (original post: may 30, 2011)...
or as a grounding feature, like water for rubber duckies! (original post: april 12, 2012)
more recently, i fell equally as hard for watercolor wonder - i just love the paint strokes and splats. it was the perfect stamp set to recreate a postage stamp from the '80s into a card for stamp-a-faire! (original post: august 25, 2014)
and last, but definitely not least, birthday style - the streamers are the coolest! they really set the scene for this birthday card featuring give me a hand, one of the cards that just barely missed the cut for my 8 favorites yesterday! (original post: december 14, 2014)
can't wait for more maile!
