A·Muse|Studio Consultant June Blog Hop

Welcome to Gypsy Paperie! You should have come from Kari Kards.  If not, you can get to the start of the hop by going to Samantha's blog.  She will have the complete list of all the blogs in the hop.

The theme for this hop is DSP (designer series paper aka pattern paper). It's really easy to make your own pattern paper using stamps. I wanted to show an easy to make card that only used one color of cardstock. Kraft cardstock is very versatile and one of my faves.  I started by stamping the mesh background stamp in french roast and then stamped some leaves and flowers over top of the mesh. I'm addicted to the vintage labels stamp and matching dies so that was any easy choice.  A little twine wrapped around the sentiment keeps with the nature theme of the card.



Here's the run down on all the items I used.  All items are A·Muse|Studio.
Paper: Kraft Cardstock
Ink: Fern, French Roast, Current
Stamps: Mesh Background, Vintage Labels, Beautiful Botanicals, Beautiful Botanicals 2, Essential Sentiments
Ribbon: French Roast Twine
Die: Labels Die Set

I'm giving away a Black Momento Ink Pad to one lucky person that leave a comment on this post, you don't have to be a follower, but followers are always appreciated.  I'll use a random number generator to determine which comment wins so be sure to leave a way for me to contact you.  Comments will close at 3:00 on June 4th.  I also have a bonus gift for the first three people to place an order in my webstore! 

Next stop on the hop is Kelly's South Paw Paper Arts blog.  There's some blog candy to be given away along the hop so be sure to visit all the blogs and comment.
