Allison's Suggestive Sunday Challenge




I made these Thank You Cards today based on Allison's Suggestive Sunday "Case" Challenge. I decided to case a card from Taylor Van Bruggen, I admire her style a lot! I made a card using this same stamp set last summer and it was a total disaster! I own a few of Papertrey Ink Stamps but I rarely use them because I was intimidated by them. The stamps are beautiful but I lacked confidence and stopped using them for awhile. After practicing and getting a "feel" for them, I feel much better with my creation this time around. I have a few differences but the theme is on the same path as Ms. Van Bruggen's. Thank you for this challenge Allison, I had a lot of fun with this one. Click here to see the card that I CASED from Taylor Van Bruggen. The card is on page 4

Details:

Stamp: Papertrey Ink (Pretty Lady)
Inks: Adirondack and SU's Real Red
Paper: Papertrey Ink Stampers Select and The Cut Cardstock Company (Red & Black)
Sentiment: Papertrey Ink (Pretty Lady)
ribbon: I cannot remember where I brought this ribbon

Hey Malieta,

I agree Taylor's style is fabulous. Gosh, there's a lot of talented artists out there. . .including you!! I love your card and its simplicity. I think it takes talent to make a simple card that stands out. Your card stands out beautifully!!

Taylor's one of my faves and you did a great job CASE'ing her!

It makes me feel better to hear that you were also intimidated by PTI stamps at first because that's how I felt. I couldn't get anything that I liked, even looking at a zillion samples. But, I just kept plugging away and finally started to like them more and more :-)
