Together Forever Blooms + Vintage Type + Circle of Love

Hey all! It’s the last day of Papertrey Ink’s release and we have some real beauties to share with you today!! We have 3 beautiful stamp sets by a brand new designer for Papertrey and goodness I am in love!

Starting off with Circle of Love and Vintage Type! I paired these two together with a white on white and a hint of bright color vibe. I used Rustic White for my white cardstock this time and it gives it an even more vintage feel.

I chose Tropical Teal, Limeade Ice, and Hibiscus Burst for my main colors and Smokey Shadow was my neutral.

My next card showcases Together Forever Blooms from the same new designer for Papertrey Ink.

I went with a more muted watercolor feel for this card. The two large flowers are stamped using Melon Berry and Lemon Tart with a spritz of water before pressing. The leaves are created by mixing Limeade Ice and Lemon Tart with a spritz of water as well. The sentiment in bold black is tied in with the black paint splatters and the card is finished off with Natural Twine wrapped around two corners.

I truly hope you all have enjoyed this month’s release. It was amazing and so much fun to put together! Love to you all.

Potbellies Unicorn + Everyday Sentiments + Words to Live By Smile

Hey all! It’s the day I feel you’ve all been waiting for… Unicorn Potbelly Day!! 😉

I decided to make a male and a female unicorn for today’s release… the female is made with the Potbellies: Unicorn dies and Word to Live By: Smile.

The male is created with the Potbellies: Unicorn dies and the coordinating sentiments… Potbellies: Everyday Sentiments.

These are such a FUN set to create with… I have seen so many creative ways to use them in the Papertrey Forum and I can’t WAIT to see how you use them in real life!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Glorious Globes: January // Papertrey Ink Featured Post

Today is all about the Glorious Globes and I have three fun cards to show you today! Let’s dive in with the first card which started out as a masculine card and ended up being uber feminine!

Once I cut out the Scallop Stacker dies in Weathervane and Smokey Shadow I immediately switched my focus from creating a men’s card to more of a pink Valentine’s card. I LOVE how it turned out. The flowers in this card are from the SAF Community Garden set and I thought they accented the adorable love globe perfectly.

A little Raspberry Fizz Bitty Big and twine finish off this cute little number and may have sent it into my January 2019 release Hall of Fame… we all pick favorite cards we make from time to time… right?!

My next card is a fun green and textured project.

I used a Spring Moss Bitty Big behind a white Shape Shifters die as the backdrop for this card, giving it immediate texture.

The globe takes front and center this time atop books from the original Globes set. I adore the map image on this globe. So traditional and precise.

Twine is the perfect finish for this card, giving it a down to earth taste.

And finally I can’t go a release without an all white card! (You know me.) For this one I overlayed the new Bold Borders in white on white and accented it with black paint drops.

I kept the love globe simple and used the “you” from the Bold Borders to finish off the sentiment so it reads “love you.”

Thank you so very much for perusing my blog today. I think you will all be super excited to see what’s being released tomorrow 😉 Much love fam!

Frame It Out: What’s Inside + Nesting Basics: Ovals // Papertrey Ink

Welcome back to Day 2 of Papertrey Ink’s January 2019 Release! Today I am showcasing a fun new stamp and die set from the lovely Rebecca Luminarias called Frame It Out: What’s Inside as well as another solid essential die set from Lizzie Jones, Nesting Basics: Ovals.

How clever are these sentiments?! I love the warnings Rebecca included in the stamps – everything from glitter warnings, fun, excitement, confetti, a million thank you’s and more!! These will surely get smiles on the receiving end 😉

I die cut the decorative frame into a thick oval I cut from the new nesting frames and stamped on my card base for a fun popped up design.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I will see you again tomorrow for more delicious Papertrey goodies!

Shape Shifters + Corner Adorner + Pierced Ovals + Let’s Fiesta // Papertrey Ink January 2019 Release

Hello all! Welcome to the very first Papertrey Ink release of 2019! We have some truly adorable products to share with you this week and I can’t wait to show you all the projects! So without further ado…

Lizzie Jones is back with her January Corner Adorner alongside Betsy Veldman’s latest in the Shape Shifter series. Today I’ve layered 5 separate Shape Shifter die cuts in multiple colors and accented the corners with the dots from Lizzie’s set.

The Corner Adorner has a multistep dot stamp that overlay each other so you can have a beautiful multicolored confetti-like effect, or simply use the stamps on their own like I did here.

My second project is showcasing Betsy Veldman’s Let’s Fiesta stamp and die set and man is this set ever cute!! Betsy added so many fun elements to this set and it’s packed!! This is a double stamp set (2, 4×6 sheets) and provides plenty of images as well as sentiments.

I decided to keep things simple for today’s card and accent one of my favorite images from this set… that rug!!! I fell in love with that cutie the second I saw it and couldn’t wait to use it as the focal point on a card. The giant sentiment is the perfect compliment for the rug and the subtle impression of Lizzie Jones’ new Pierced Ovals underneath gives a bit of added texture.

That’s all for me today! I will see you back here every day this week for more release fun and projects! Happy Thursday all!
