PTI Create Along With Us: July 2015

Thanks to Betsy Veldman Papertrey Ink has started a new challenge where we select something the design team has created and use it for inspiration. The entries for this inaugural challenge can be found here.

Because I needed some sympathy cards (three to be exact), I was inspired by Dawn McVey's "Feel Better" card shown here where she showcases her new Vintage Linens stamp set. 


Hibiscus Burst and Pure Poppy are not two colors I would layer even though I've seen lots of beautiful stamped images using them. I just had to try it for myself and after using Rosie Posie, I now realize Vintage Linens is a must-have set (not that I could ever duplicate the one and only Dawn McVey). Here's my card and thanks to MISTI I was able to stamp three in the time it would normally take me to make one. Thanks, Dawn, for the inspiration! There are lots more that inspire me so I am thrilled with this new challenge and will keep this bookmarked.

Cardstock: Stamper's Select White and Hawaiian Shores
Ink: Hibiscus Burst, Pure Poppy, Hawaiian Shores and Simply Chartreuse
Stamps: Rosie Posie, Rosie Posie Step 2, Boutique Borders: Sympathy and Harvest Berries

What a lovely design for a sympathy card. Love those roses that you used.

Kathy, I think you are too hard on yourself! I think you did a fabulous card ala Dawn's and it works so well as a sympathy card design! Thank you for the inspiration!! Hugs, Darnell
