Papertrey Ink Make It Monday#280

This week for the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge#280, we are using a technique called Stamping Outside of the Box hosted by Lexi Daly.  You can find her video here. This is a very simple way to highlight your focal image.


My card uses Fresh Bouquet Stamps with the coordinating die and was stamped in Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet and Vintage Jadeite for the leaves.  My card base is made from Sweet Blush Cardstock, the background panel is Pale Peony and the "box" is cut from Stamper's Select White with a bit of ink blending in Pale Peony.  I used a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die in the largest size and a mid sized Stitched Square Stax Die from My Favorite Things.  The greeting from Botanical Blocks was stamped onto the Banner Die from Tag Sale: Quilted using Versamark and heat embossed with Antique Gold Embossing Powder.

Whenever I get out the Fresh Bouquet stamp and die set, I always cut several and stamp them while I have the supplies out.  Since I like to heat emboss the outline part of the image before I stamp it, this takes a bit more time to do.  I just do a variety of colors that I like and that way when I need to pull a card together quickly, I have some of these ready to go.

Be sure to stop over to the Papertrey Ink Blog to see everyone's projects!  There are sure to be some fantastic cards!
