Vintage Picnic

Wow I finally had a chance to ink up my new Vintage Picnic set from PaperTrey Ink and BOY oh BOY do I love it!!! (Even more than I thought I would.)

I made up a few quick cards - following the same general layout but with different baskets etc. Thought I would share a couple with you - I used the embossing with Nesties technique - I tried a single nestie emboss first on the tulip card and then colored my images with Copics. That took the most time for me since there was a fair amount of detail work to do on the basket but they all turned out pretty cute I thought. I read one tip from someone at PTI that said to stamp the TOPPER first THEN stamp the basket - it was easier to line up and I would agree with that completely.


I used the same embossing technique but with TWO nesties on the wishing you well card. I forgot to "ground" my basket on this one when I colored it - some folks like to ground their images - others don't. I try to do it when I remember to ;-)

I will be reaching for this set over and over since the versatility and combinations are so varied.


There are some small images included in the set also - I used one for the inside on the Happy Harvest card I made and changed this one up by using the Labels 1 nestie.



Thanks for looking - hope you enjoy.

i recently got this stamp set from pti, but haven't had a chance to ink it up. i love how you used the embossing to highlight the stamped image. also, it's interesting to add the coordinating smaller stamped image inside the card. nice job and tfs.

These are gorgeous, Pam! I passed on this set, but I may have to rethink that decision...I keep seeing all of these amazing cards and it may need to go in my cart after all!
