Growth with Angela Thomas

It's Angela here and I've been having so much fun this month as the Guest Designer here at Eclectic Paperie and this week is no exception. I often am inspired by designer paper which would explain my addiction... err... obsession with it. LOL!!! If you only knew how many 6x6 paper pads I have. My Mind's Eye always comes out with fabulous designer paper and when I saw "The Sweetest Thing: Honey" I knew I had to snatch it up. I absolutely love the color combos in this pad.
I decided to make two projects for this week with this fantastic paper.
I enjoy making journals to give as gifts and thought that this paper combined with the Market Street Stamps set called "Growth" would be a perfect fit. I used a sketch (for the life of me, I can't remember where it is from) that I thought would highlight each aspect. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black. The flower is from Maya Road and is called Vintage Gauze Blossoms. I thought about using re-inkers to change the color of it but I chickened out.
Here is my second project that I created using the same stamp set as well as the same papers.
I love how different each project looks. I don't often create clean and simple cards but I think this DP called for it. The button I've used comes from the Basic Grey Plumeria Vintage buttons. For this card, I used Memento Rich Cocoa ink.
Thanks for popping by today :-)

My daughter www.hungrycaramella.blogspot.com would love the vintage buttons, she's into anything retro and vintage, including music. I will tell her to follow you too. You are very creative, the cards are fabulous. I have no talent at those things, no imagination or creativity whatsoever. Happy Thanksgiving!
