Stamping on Printed Paper

DeNami Blog Hop Post is HERE

I loved Ashley's video & cards for PTI MIM HERE, so decided to give it a try.  I used a double-sided sheet of Basic Grey called Hello Luscious & PTI Harvest Berries stamp set.  The leaves are stamped with Distress Ink antique linen.  I inked the sentiment with Versafine Vintage Sepia, except for the word "Remember" which is inked with my Rhubarb Stalk Memento marker.  The berries are also inked with the marker.  The card is PTI Vintage Cream & the edges of all the pieces are sponged with Distress Ink old paper.  The layers are popped up & brown twine & a dark red button finish it off.  I'm glad to finally start using some of the beautiful printed papers I've purchased over the years.  I love to read your comments & am always open to suggestions.  Wishing you a great week!

  1. Hello Greta,
    The Bg paper maybe called luscious, but the card is sumptuous, I am loving the subdued colour palette, and your inking. Design wise it is perfect with just the right amount of texture and dimension, to make it pleasing to the eye.
    A great card.
    Smiles:)

  9. Love the rustic feel of your card and the subtle stamping of the ginkgo leaves on the bg. Absolutely gorgeous! I keep forgetting this stamp set has a sentiment. Guess I gotta use it sometime soon :)
