I’m so sad, I’ve used the last of my Pemberley paper pack. The paper is so beautiful, especially this last sheet of florals… it was so hard to cut it up. So, I just did the most minimal cuts ever so I could get the most impact from the design of the paper.
I also used Bamboo and Indian Corn Blue. The stitching strip along the middle is from the Pemberley Stickease sticker assortment. It’s a very plain layout and didn’t really take any time at all except for the punching.
I don’t have much of them Pemberley paper left… and I don’t want to waste a tiny morsel of it!!! So, I’m using my scraps for this week’s Mojo Monday 234. Here is my entry:
I absolutely love the Pemberley paper pack!!! It’s going to be around for about a year, but I’m already anxious about the inevitable retirement of this beautiful paper. What to do?….. Make my own!!!!
I experimented all afternoon and finally came up with something I was happy with. To be honest, I’m not the best stamp colour-inner. I have no copics 😦 nor do I really understand the concept of light and shading in stuff. Geez, what is a girl to do? After many attempts and a little frustration…. I just wiped my sponge dauber inked with Indian Corn Blue across the stamped image (Outdoor Denim ink) and VOILA it didn’t look half bad. Sooooooooo, I went with that. And, here’s the result…. Ta Da…..
This is a 12 x 12 piece of Bamboo paper that I stamped with some of the stamps from the Card Word Puzzle stamp set. The flowers from collection are the same design as the flowers from the Pemberley paper collection. It’s pretty good despite the fact that it is a prototype. I hope this inspires you to be your own designer as well!!
This is the card I made for yesterday’s Mojo Monday sketch.
Are you ready for the video? I really had no idea how it was going to end up and it might be a little scary watching my thought process in action. Thank goodness for editing!
I finally opened the Pemberley paper pack! Sometimes I find it hard to cut up such beautiful paper and I have to just look at it for a while. I have enough paper and Stickease left over to do a double page layout and some cards. Just such good value for your buck!
You can get your Pemberley paper pack for only $9.95 and the Stickease for $4.95. There are 6 pieces of patterned paper and 6 sheets of plain cardstock.
