Just a Note...

I don't know about you, but I have way too many stamp sets that I have bought, but have never used.  One of those sets was PTI's "Just the Ticket".  I can now say that after owning the set for longer than I care to remember it has finally seen ink!  And it is all thanks to the lovely sketch provided by the super talented Jaydee from the Paper Players.  When I saw her sketch this past weekend I kicked around a few ideas and then settled on using "Just the Ticket" and the matching die (which I had never used either!!).   I diecut three sets of "tickets" using SU!'s Crumb Cake and PTI's Vintage Cream & Plum Pudding.  The images were stamped on the Vintage Cream strip using Plum Pudding ink.  The Crumb Cake & Plum Pudding strips were used as mats.  I inked up all strips with some Old Paper Distress ink, as well as the edges of the Vintage Cream card base.  Finished things with a some purple and brown bakers twine.   The color combo comes from this week's color challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. 



Thanks for taking a peek...

You are certainly one for negative space in your Cards Rosie, but you do it so very very well.
I, like many would not be able to live with it, and would need to add something, you are the queen of simplicity and elegance.
Is that sounding too over the top!!!
Whatever, it is a beautiful creation.

I have a "couple" of those stamp sets in my collection that are still waiting to see some ink. Haha! This stamp set was "just the ticket" for this sketch...sorry I HAD to use the pun! I really like how you tied the colors together, too. The baker's twine is a perfect touch! Thanks so much for playing along again this week at The Paper Players! Have a great day! :)

Rosemary, I am SO glad that you were inspired to ink up this set and show it a little love. It's a gorgeous set. I love the colors you choose and the twine is the perfect embellishment. It works fabulously with the sketch and is really on trend. A perfect CAS card.
So glad you joined the Paper Players again this week and shared this wonderful card
