Just a Bit of Snail Mail

Lookee... I have a new stamp set or two! LOL! In addition to buttons, paper and ribbon I actually ordered a couple of stamp sets from PTI. I really really liked the picnic basics so I splurged and bought 'em!

This is one of the cards I whipped up with the new set! I stamped and colored the image and then cut out with an oval die (a much neglected oval die). Mounted on a scalloped die and then sewed a couple of buttons with ribbon to the image. It may be very difficult to see but I also stamped the Pink Pirouette (really light pink) with an image from the Text Style Background Basics set.

Hope you like it! :)

Stamps: Vintage Picnic, Background Basics: Text Style (PTI). Paper: Berry Sorbet, Pure Poppy, White (PTI), Kraft, Pink Pirouette, Kraft designer (SU!). Ink: Pink Pirouette Classic, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers.
