Hey there friends and welcome to this week’s Throwback Thursday with Papertrey Ink! Today we are revisiting the Mehndi Medallion stamp set.

For me, anytime I see Mehndi art, I am instantly reminded of Henna tattoo art and Henna trees (which the Henna tattoo stain comes from)… so basically my mind quickly jumps to nature haha.

Henna Tree

With that in mind, I wanted to put some leaves reminiscent of Henna tree leaves on my card today.

I started by creating my focal point with the largest Mehndi stamp in Harvest Gold and accenting the circular pattern with stamped leaves in Green Parakeet and Limeade Ice.

To balance the darkness from the sentiment I added some black paint splatters and True Black twine but overall kept my design pretty simple.

Hey lovelies! Today, Rebecca Luminarias has a gorgeous set of stamps and dies to share with all of you and Lizzie Jones has a sweet new set called Forest Floor: Spring.

I used light and Eastery colors for this card and made little bow polka dots on the card base in Soft Stone. The tag in the center is cut right from the card base and popped up for some dimension.

My next card is a masculine take on the Forest Floor: Spring set.

I used multiple greens to create a frame at the top of my card, accenting the focal point which is the frame and small sentiment in the center. The black and white twine ties the black color in and finishes the card off.
