Introducing Southwestern Style

Hello there! Today I’m joining Papertrey Ink as we begin introducing some of the new products coming out in the May release. My projects today feature the new Southwestern Style stamp set designed by Maile Belles.PTI-Southwestern StyleFor my first card I used one of the images in the Southwestern Style stamp set and stamped it repeatedly in several colors. Then I die cut the Phrase Play #3 die with Double-Sided foam and coated one side with clear glitter.
PTI-Southwestern StyleTo finish it off I added some loose silver thread and glossy accent dots. This set has endless possibilities for creating patterns.
PTI-Southwestern StyleFor my second card I stamped the crosshatch type of image repeatedly to create a colorful pattern along the bottom of my panel. I used the Sentiment Splits: Curve Vertical die and curved the sentiment to contour along the curved edge.
PTI-Southwestern StyleMy last card was inspired by this beautiful switch plate that I saw on Pinterest.
d8cd86cd84cccaa775335e1ab27f5f04I mimicked the pattern on the switch plate by stamping rows of images and drawing lines with my multiliner pen.
PTI-Southwestern StyleI colored some of the rows in using Copics and split the panel at the bottom to leave room for the sentiment.
PTI-Southwestern StyleSo as you can see, the possibilities are endless for creating amazing patterns with this fun new Southwestern Style stamp set. Check out the Papertrey Ink blog to see more of the May release. Thanks so much for stopping by!
