My Papertreyink stamps have FINALLY arrived

Ok so it took a month.. but that's only because I had to have those nugget tins that were out of stock for what seemed like forever.. These were going to be my WCMD projects but that's a whole nother story I'm saving for sitting around the bomb fire when I'm 75 telling ... Do you remember when stories... Do you remember back in 2007 that WCMD well... let me tell you.....

Tonight I started to feel a little better (that usually means that tomorrow I'll feel worse because today I did too much and should have just rested.. but what the hey.. ) and these darn stamps kept calling my name.. Lisa ........ Lisa........ Hey are you down there.....(there's a really good possibility that I have a fever with my tooth so I could just be delusional... may be my stamps weren't really talking to me... but that's neither here nor there).. So you I went to stamp anyway... Here's my first attempts at Take a Bough.. Next time ... the tree will have SNOW... I need to get to Mike's this weekend and stock up on the MS twill ribbon.. I need green, white, ivory...

My Green tree uses....
Stamp Set... Take a Bough (Papertreyink)
Card Stock... True Thyme, Very Vanilla & Cosmo Cricket "Believe" DS paper...
Ink... Close to Cocoa, True Thyme, Ruby Red & Going Grey...
Accessories... Moss taffeta ribbon, page pebbles, Antique Brass large eyelets
Tools... Crop-a-dile



And now my Blue Tree...
Stamp Set... Take a Bough (Papertreyink)
Card Stock.. Blue Bayou, Very Vanilla & Daisy D's Heirloom Blue Blossoms DS paper
Ink... Close to Cocoa, True Thyme, Blue Bayou, Ruby Red & Going Grey
Accessories.. Blue Bayou Double Stitched Ribbon, Page Pebbles & Pewter large eyelets Tools.. Crop-a-dile..

One of the many things I love about Nicole's stamps are how easy they all coordinate. The pine boughs line up perfectly with the tree branch, the centers of the ornaments fit perfectly.. and being clear, they are soooooo easy to align.

Lisa, very pretty cards! I got my first PaperTrey set a month ago (had to have Butterfly Kisses), but had to pack it right away for moving. Now if I could just find it, I could play with PaperTrey stamps, too. Glad to hear how easy they are to use and create images. Thanks for sharing, and I'm glad you're feeling better.
