I’m not… Wonderwoman!

Now I’m warning you, lengthy post with loads of pictures ahead!
Ha, you’re still there. Well then, here we go:

I made a stationery set for a friend of mine, now I’ll show you the ensemble in all its glory 😉

ananas paper

As you can see, the first image depicts the 10 sheets of paper I stamped, the next three pics show the matching envelopes (I made 5 of each design) and the five final photos show the five coordinating cards of this set.

Now, what ties the set together can easily be seen:

First of all the paper – the basic paper is all the same kraft-like colour with a light structure (the envelopes look lighter in the pictures but IRL they’re the same colour), I added patterned paper from Basic Grey’s Wisteria Collection and of course some Very Vanilla, Dark Chocolate and Whisper White.

ananas one

Ink: 3 colours, namely PTI Dark Chocolate, Versacolor Amethyst and some Colorbox Frost White Pigment.

ananas two

Stamps: PTI Polka Dot Basics, PTI Mixed Messages, PTI Borders & Corners – Circles, Inkadinkado Birds Galore, Stampendous Mod Dot Butterfly.

ananas three

Ribbon: Papertrey Ink Plum Pudding in almost all its variations

ananas four

Accessories: punches (corner rounder!!), embossing powder, white & purple buttons, hemp twine, white thread, white gel pen, glossy accents… just to name a few 😉

ananas five

Yes, the zig-zag border on the last card is hand-stitched, it was very useful to poke in the holes beforehand (using the template from SU’s Mat Pack) in order not to bend the cardstock too much.

I just got a message saying that Buck will have to have a light anesthesia on Friday morning. He has something in his eye and the doc apparently wants to make sure it’s nothing serious. Now I know it’s not dangerous and all, but you know how this is, yet still I’m worried. So if you could think of Buck on Friday, I’d be very thankful.

Have a good night!
