"With the new year comes a clean slate along with many resolutions. This month's blog hop challenge involves you challenging yourself to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that might be collecting a little dust! Go through your stash and see what little used treasure it might hold. "
That would describe most of my sets since I haven't stamped much this past year. (maybe two...not sayin') Not to mention, a lot of my sets have only seen ink for my inventory book. I'd claim that NONE of my sets are uninked, but I'm so behind on my clear stamps in said book that it wouldn't be true! With so many to choose from, I decided to pick a set I bought in my very first Papertrey order.
I made thank you cards since I have several people on my list and none in my card stash. I made my own background paper using the images from Boxes, Bags & Tags and then sponged the paper to give it a vintage look.
Both cards are simple without much in the way of embellishments, but I really like the classic look I achieved in the combination of pattern and color, plus I needed cards that would be appropriate for either men or women. The sentiments are from two other uninked sets. Bonus! :D These cards would be easy to mass produce in a short amount of time. Variations are endless just by altering the colors and sentiments.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!
