Hello there! Today I’m showcasing the Papertrey Ink anniversary set, called Grand Finale. For those that may not be familiar with the anniversary set, it’s a special customer appreciation set that can only be purchased with reward points. And rewards points are simply earned when purchasing from Papertrey Ink! So you’re basically getting this set for FREE! You can read more about the reward point system here.
This is such a beautiful set designed by Nichole Heady. I created a card using just the Grand Finale stamp set and some wet stamping with Papertrey Ink dye inks. On watercolor paper, I stamped the semi-circle wreath in Blueberry Sky dye ink and sprayed it with some water before stamping. I then used a brush to extend the colors. Then, I dabbed on some New Leaf dye ink with the same stamp to add some patches of green onto the wreath.
Next, I stamped various flowers from the set in Honey Nut dye ink. Then I used a wet brush to blur/soften the image. I then added some paint splatter with Blueberry Sky dye ink.
Finally, I stamped the ‘thank you’ sentiment from this set in the center with Versamark ink and heat embossed it in gold. The watercolor panel was elevated with some craft foam onto a vertical folded A2 white base card.
You’ll be seeing lots of thank you cards from me as I keep accumulating them up and until the wedding date. I’m going to needs lots! Hope you enjoy today’s post and head on over the Papertrey Ink store to collect your anniversary set!
