Beautiful on Repeat

Thursday, June 2, 2016
Hi friends! It's been a whirlwind week for me and I just realized I never posted this little card I made last weekend.  I was super inspired by Lori's little tip on her hop post about using the MISTI to line up repeating images and just had to try it out. 

I love the look of second and third generation stamping (stamping once, then again without reapplying ink), and decided to test out her little alignment trick with this technique.  So I inked up the beautiful sentiment from Beautiful Things in rich razzleberry, stamped it, then moved my paper down 3/4" and stamped again, then another 3/4" move and the third stamping. Love the different shades I got from just the one inking.

For the bottom portion, I stamped the make beautiful things sentiment, adding the YOU to the top, then added a second generation stamping of the flower off the side.  The rich razzleberry panel is stamped randomly with the same flower, then I distressed the edges and added a seam binding bow, tucking in some vellum cut leaves using the Beautiful Flowers Die Set.  Super easy and lots of fun.  I hope it inspires you!

Alrighty, thanks so much for stopping by.  A long awaited box of Verve restocks appeared on my doorstep last night, so I have a day filled with packaging stamps ahead of me.  {happy sigh}
