Communique Curves (5)

I am thrilled to introduce my first stamp set for 2009 called Communique Curves by Papertrey Ink available for purchase on November 15th. As many of you know I took most of this year to settle into new routines: homeschooling, having grandma (my grandma) move in with us in addition to a move to a new city and house that required a TON of yard work. Now that I have settled I am slowly finding my way back to illustrating, publication work and stamping too. Wait till you see what's in store for 2010!

Communique Curves was not only designed with the holidays in mind but also every day celebrations. I am really fond of clean design and along with that I see shapes and perfect font matches. This set gives you that and more! You will be able to put together boutique cards for less. I am sure you will be amazed by what combinations you can make with this set.

Today's project features one of my favourite combos: circles, buttons, ribbon and sentiments!
This card is easily reproducible and ideal for mass production. Keep in mind any colour goes. I stuck with traditional holiday colours for this card. I used several sheets from the Bitty Dot Basics patterned paper collection. I also stamped Polka Dot Basics II with new leaf ink on new leaf cardstock. You'll note that I used Spellbinders Labels 4 die cut to create the framework for the stamp and sentiment from Communique Curves. In addition, I used several copic markers to colour between the circles. Lastly, I added lucious Pure Poppy buttons.  Creating "the circle": I stamped the first circle and then masked it with a post it note (I stamped the circle on a post it note, cut it out and placed it over top the first circle).  Then I offset the next circle and stamped it etc.  You can add many rings, just keep in mind you will need to keep masking.  The colouring is the last thing I do.

Terrific! It is so good to see you designing again (I know what you mean about the yardwork - I am a military spouse, my hubby deployed for a year, and now it is I doing the mowing and edging and blowing of clippings and weeding and weed whacking and tree trimming and fertilizing...).

Looks very promising!! Can't wait to see what else the set contains! And I'm glad to see you keeping "mass production" in mind, and I also love how your ribbon treatment keeps it "flat" for mailing. Very nice.
