Today's set was designed with all of you scrap-bookers in mind. The images are perfectly scaled for layouts as well as cards. If you follow me, you know that I love stamps that allow me to pull together a card quickly when I'm short on time, but also have enough flexibility when I want to take my time and experiment.
Woodgrain Silhouettes: Additions contains 13 generously sized images that compliment Woodgrain Silhouettes beautifully.
For my first sample, I wanted to show you that a masculine card doesn't have to be dull or boring. Just look at this bright and fresh Father's Day card.
I used the Father's Day sentiment and woodgrain background stamp from yesterday's set, Woodgrain Silhouettes. I paired it with some fern images and one of the birds included in today's set. First I stamped the ferns in Versamark onto PTI's Aqua Mist cardstock and embossed in white. Then I came back in and stamped the woodgrain background with Versamark as well. Don't you just love that soft effect?
For my next card I wanted to create a monochromatic, soft, feminine card using PTI's Blush and Berry Sorbet.
I used one of the large leaf images to create a stunning background. These leaves are incredible and measure in at approx. 3" across at there longest point. Talk about the perfect size for a layout or creating patterned paper in a snap. To finish this card off I used a crocus flower image and a sentiment from yesterday's set.
And finally, I always like to have everyday card sets on hand. They are great when you are in a pinch, or even as gift sets. And these big bold images make it easier than ever to mass produce.
For these 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" cards I used the other bird included in today's set. This little guy is too cute and measures approx. 1 1/4" x 1 1/4". The perfect size to hold it's own as a focal image, don't you think?
What did I tell you? I wasn't lying when I said I was having the hardest time putting these sets down.
