Introducing Fanciful Finials

Good morning! Today is the first day of new stamp introductions for the February Papertrey Ink release. Before I get started I need to take a moment to thank all of you that have left such kind and thoughtful notes for me the past few days. Y'all really know how to make a girl feel like she's doing a few things right! I totally appreciate your enthusiasm and I'm so excited to be working with Papertrey and the entire community. Yay!

Well, this month I am introducing and showcasing a little add-on set I'm calling Fanciful Finials (available on February 15th). This set includes four finial designs in two heights (long stems and short stems) that will allow you to embellish your Background Basics: Wrought Iron fences. Shall we get started? Great!

My card today showcases the more intricate wrought iron strip along with one of the finial styles. I'm using both stem lengths here, so you can see how much interest the variance adds. I started by stamping my fence and then added my finials with just a few quick impressions. The finials are in strips of three to make stamping them super quick and easy to line up.

I added my birds and layered on a sentiment strip. The focal image was tied with 1/4" silk ribbon that I dyed with a Copic marker (R29). I added a few clouds and mounted my focal panel to an Aqua Mist base.

That's all for me today, but I'll be back again tomorrow with another project highlighting Fanciful Finials. In the meantime make sure to check in with Nichole, Betsy, Dawn, Heather, Maile, Erin, and Melissa. They're sure to have tons of inspiration for you to enjoy. See you soon!
