Rachel's August Results

First off, let me just say this: I love this stamp set. When I first got it, I couldn't stop staring at it. It's just gorgeous. Thank you, Tammy, for the challenge, and for the gift that keeps on giving. I love the idea of making a set of cards using all of the different sentiments. For now, I made two cards using leftover paper from previous kits and that beautiful ribbon from Marieke's November heritage-themed kit from last year:

Here is a closer look at the first card:

And the second:

Apologies for picture quality - someday I will learn that taking photographs during the day is really the only way to go.

Tammy's August Results

Finally, I am posting on time for a change :) Here are my creations with the Papertrey Anniversary stamp set. I really like the simplicity of this set. It doesn't take much to make a nice card. At first I didn't like the font of the "y" but it is growing on me. Here they are all together:

And here they are one at a time. I went a bit overboard with the flowers on the first one :)

I made sure to take them all in one direction since I seem to have issues with blogger and loading photos sideways...

One layer cards, got to love them!

I hope you are enjoying the stamp set and get a chance to make something as well!

August Challenge

The challenge for August is an easy one. All you need to do is make something utilizing the stamps in the Papertrey Ink Anniversary stamp set that I gave each of you. The single rule is that you only use stamps from that set. Feel free to use any paper, embellishments, etc. A nice and easy challenge to end the summer. I hope you like the set and I look forward to seeing what you create.
