Today---I want to say thank you to Papertrey Ink.
I recently picked up Damask Designs which was designed by the awesome Dawn McVey for Papertrey, so I decided to use it for my Monday CCEE challenge. This week we had to use adhesive address labels on our cards. Easy enough! I stamped the damask pattern on each label and then peeled them and stuck them to the black matted cardstock. I stamped another damask design and then used the small circle punch (SU!) to punch the design and add it onto a brad:
I love how dramatic the black and white looks. Check out all the other label-ed creations on the CCEE blog! Hope you will play along.
And here is another card I created with the Damask Designs. When I first saw this large image, I immediately thought of a chandelier. So.....I created a simple one layer card with that large image as the main focus. After stamping the design, I added some darker parts with a black marker (kind of representing shadows that all chandeliers give off). Then I used some Mark Richards tiny black crystal stickers to add the chain and some interest to the chandelier itself.
I used a larger black crystal sticker in the center. Finally, I stamped the sentiment, added some more crystal stickers around it and then tied the ribbon (Berry Sorbet) to the top.
Think it looks like a chandelier?
THANK YOU so much Nichole and Papertrey Ink for generously donating to a very worthy cause. I will never forget your willingness to help. I am so grateful.
