Now for my patterened paper. I had purchased the Guide Lines Grid sheets from PTI when they were released a couple of months ago, but had not used them. I thought this would be a good time to try it. I used one of the square stamps from the first Guide Lines stamp set to make my patterned paper. I also just received my SU order with all the new in-colors and wanted to try them out. I used Melon Mambo for the base and Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry ink for the patterned paper. Here is a close up of the patterend paper so you can see how I placed the images on the guidelines.I finished off the handles with the Crushed Curry polka dot grosgrain ribbon. The flower brads are SU as well. I edged the top of the basket with the eyelet border. There is a lid for the basket, but I chose not to use it this time. I wanted my fake fruit to spill out of it! (Actually I was too lazy to make it! LOL!) The image is from Paper Makeup Stamps called Picnic Fairies. It was also just released this month as part of the PMS summer release, and I used it in this card when we were previewing the sneak peeks. I colored the image with copic markers and added Star Dust Stickles for sparkle. I couldn't find a sentiment I liked for this image in rubber, so I just computer-generated my own!
I hope you decide to try this challenge. You can go to the PTI site here for the templates. They are so easy to download, print and put together, and they are very affordable (only $5). The instructions are so easy to follow. You can print the template right on your cardstock or on regular computer paper and use that as your guide to cut it out. This is what I do because cardstock always gets stuck in my printer! Time for a new one, I know! If you decide to play, go to Lauren's blog and leave a direct link to your project on Mr. Linky. If you post to SCS/PCP, use the code MTTC03. We can't wait to see what you come up with! Stop by the DT blogs to see what they've done, too! Thanks for stopping by!
