Black Market Papers

Have you had a chance yet to see the new paper packs that Gina added to her online store last Friday? I've used a few of them on some of my cards, but wanted to share these ones today since they show off the Letters from Paradise paper pack's texture and colors.

The first card is a 3x3 notecard. Because the paper is 6x6, I made cut my paper into four 2.75" squares and ended up making 4 of these little notecards to tuck into birthday giftbags. I just love this sized card and how quick they are to make up!

I stamped my favorite little flower pot of Gina's from her Baskets of Happiness in Versafine Black ink and clear embossed it. Then, I took my Stampin Up reinkers to watercolor the image, I used Purely Pomegranite, Wild Wasabi, and River Rock - they match this paper really well. Some Pomegranate double stitched ribbon finishes it off. The scallop squares are both Marvy punches.

This second card was a super quick one too. I used Nestability Scallop Heart Dies and stamped the leaf sprig from Flowers for Daisy on the white heart. I shaded it with some Colored Metallic Rub-on paste - it's green. I love that! I went over the leaves with the clear Sakura Glitter pen, so there's a touch of sparkle on them.

Have a great rest of your day!
