Happy Spring, friends! I love Throwback Thursday with Papertrey Ink, as it pushes me to reach back and pull out an older set that I haven't inked up in awhile. There are so many sets that I love, but having the time to create with them all isn't always easy. This is the perfect chance to show some older sets the love they deserve!
A year ago this month Simple Stems was released … a fresh and cheerful floral set with a variety of sentiments perfect for so many occasions. I didn't use them on my card for today, but these flowers fit beautifully inside Vogue Vases.
Let's jump right in...
On a white card base, I added a Stitch in Time Borders frame that was die-cut and stamped in Aqua Mist. That was attached and then set aside so I could work on my flowers.
I've listed all of the colors I used for the flowers below. After they were all stamped and die-cut, I placed them on the Aqua frame until I had them right where I wanted and then adhered them. I popped some of them up with dimensional foam and others I attached directly to the frame.
I stamped 'Happy Happy' in the upper left corner and then stamped 'Mother's Day' on a strip of white and attached that below my flowers. In the corners of the frame, I added tiny flowers that I stamped and die-cut using the Stitch in Time Borders Die Collection.
I hope you enjoyed this throwback, friends. Thanks so much for popping in. Have a wonderful day!
