hi! it's day three of the papertrey ink june release countdown and i'm here with another look at my upcoming stamp set, caution: another year older. rounding out the borders in this one page set are three caution tapes, similar to those you might find in the over the hill section of your favorite party store. above, i've created a card using all three together for a 40th birthday. not that 40's over the hill of course - 'cause if it is, i'm already rolling down the other side! the comic strip pixel dot paper sets the stage for the brightly colored border tapes to truly pop, with all three colors coming together at the top in the number clips and party hat (cut from the party hat border). i finished it off with a touch of silver wink of stella on the hat - a little bit of sparkle is good at any age!
next up, another candle card. this could have been a part of yesterday's group, but it ended up coordinating with today's first card even better - they both have a black and white with color all over kind of look. sometimes i don't even realize when i get on a stamping kick! here i wanted to create an even larger grouping of candles to go with that fun sentiment so i stamped the border three times. so many candles, so little cake! and then i had fun with it, coloring only some of the candles in rainbow colors. there's no pattern - i'd call it careful random, since you want a good scatter and mix of colored vs. not. once again, my candles are more of a focal point than border or background and i've cut my sentiment right out of the caution tape border it comes on, but that just further demonstrates the mileage you can get out of these images - this set can party! sadly, i only have two cards again today, because time was not on my side before heading out to club soccer regionals. i do have two more tomorrow, so be sure to check back in. but first, today is a group post day - as always, nichole has the product scoop and links to the design team!
