I love using words as the focal point of my cards and projects. I have been making these 'framed inspirations' for a while, using a lot of PTI products. Here is one of my favorites, using the chalkboard technique.
The frame is from Michaels. I get my frames from Michaels, Home Goods, and Hobby Lobby mostly. It's really fun finding the right stamps for the right frame.
Here is the second card I made for the PTI anniversary celebration. Same sketch, but different colors. I can't say I'm a big fan of Pure Poppy and Scarlet Jewel together. I'll have to play around with that one more.
I tried to tone down the patterned paper with some vellum.
This time I used the Hero Arts stamp International Skyline. I'm happy to say I've seen five of those landmarks in person! Or maybe 6... Is that the US Capitol on there? If so, it's 6.
I've been to New York numerous times, as well as Washington DC (if that is indeed the US Capitol dome). I've also been to London, Paris, Rome, and Pisa.
I think my favorite of all these is Washington DC. It's probably my favorite city in the US. Especially during the Cherry Blossom festival. The entire city is packed but its so beautiful! And I *love* the DC Metro. It's so easy to get around. For some reason, public transportation (including my hometown of Philadelphia) in other cities is just not as easy to decipher as Washington.
Here is my card
The sentiments is from the new PTI Pedal Pusher set. I thought it went really well with this stamp.
