Perfect Paisleys!!!

Paisleys & Petals,

I just couldn’t help myself with this card! You all know I love Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay and now the new Paisleys & Posies Stamp Set from the Holiday Mini Catalog. I love how you can use this stamp set with dark rustic colors for a fall look, bright colors for fun and flirty look, and subtles for a spring or baby look! Paisley print is so in right now and there are endless ways to use it!

I started with a Melon Mambo card base. Then I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 3-3/4″ x 5″ and placed it onto my work surface. I placed a strip of Post-It Note Tape 1/4″ from the left side edge and about an 1″ to an 1-1/2″ from that strip. This tape is perfect for masking because it is lightly sticky and it is thin. You could always use a piece of scrap paper but be sure to secure your cardstock and the mask down so they don’t move on your while you are stamping. Then I stamped in this open space with the Paisleys & Posies Stamp Set. I did 3 images in Melon Mambo Ink and 3 images in Bermuda Bay Ink. Be sure to start with your larger images first and then fill in with the smaller ones. Make sure that you are stamping over onto you mask because you want the pattern to look like it continues on. Once you are all done, you can remove your mask and finish the card. I stamped the greeting from the Tin of Cards Stamp Set. Also, I added a little circle in the lower right corner and placed an Enamel Shape in the middle of it. I love that little pop!!!! I wrapped some Bermuda Bay Stitched Ribbon around the cardstock and tied it into a knot. Now it is time to assemble. I added this layer to some Bermuda Bay cardstock and then to the card front!

I have been having lots of fun with masking and with the Paisleys Suite! Check out more samples here, here, and here!

Happy Stampin’
