Stamp Designer Showcase: Back Pocket Basics

Hello there! I'm happy to be sharing a few projects with you today for this months Papertrey Ink Stamp Designer Showcase. This month I am revisiting Back Pocket Basics. Such a sweet set that is filled with a variety of adorable images. 

To start today's projects I went a little die cut crazy, as you can see below...


That little sunshine is such a happy guy and one of my favorite images in the whole set!


I put those sunshine's the use on this first card by mixing them with a sentiment from Think Big Favorites #15.


A little closer view of those smiley faces!


Next up...a pocketful of birthday wishes card using the posies and pocket from the set. 



After adhering my pocket, posies and little 'love' tag I stamped one of the sentiments from the set. And lastly, I added a scalloped border, from the Be Happy die collection, and a few Aqua Mist buttons to the posies. 


A simple love card is up next. I started by stamping the stitched line to the top and bottom of my Vintage Cream card stock. Next, I added all of my die cut hearts. 'LOVE' is from Back Pocket Basics and 'YOU' is from Simply You.  To finish it, I added a Spring Moss button the center of my Spring Moss heart. 


 And lastly for today is a birthday card for a little boy. It's always a wonderful thing when you can use multiple stamp sets together. On this card I mixed the pocket,  from Back Pocket Basics,  and filled it with images from a few other sets...



The stars along the left side of my card were stamped using the Military Stars stamp set. And lastly, my sentiment, is from Make A Wish.


As my Papertrey Ink collection continues to grow I often forget how much fun it is to use older sets. I hope that I've inspired you just a bit to pull out this set and show it some love. 

Thank you for stopping by to say hello. I hope your day is as happy as that smiley little sunshine above! :)
