Throwback Thursday // Hooray Papertrey Ink

Hey all! Welcome back to another fun adventure with Papertrey Ink’s Throwback Thursdays! Today we are revisiting the Hooray stamp set.

I decided to manipulate the streamer stamps into fun swirls and stamp them around the top right corner.

By using a popped up deconstructed sentiment I added a little dimension onto the card. Even more dimension is added when popping the whole Rustic White panel up on top of some kraft.

To finish it off I tied a couple wraps of Rustic Jute Twine around the side and I was finished!

Transformation Tuesday // Papertrey Ink

Hey friends! Welcome to another fun edition to Papertrey Ink’s Transformation Tuesday series! Today I am sharing a card I made from the most recent Papertrey release and how I changed it up and transformed it into something new!

The card on the right is my original card. The Pinefeather cardstock background is so beautiful, but I tend to lean more towards lighter colors, so I decided to go back in for a redo!

Since I liked my original layout and design, I kept it the same for the most part. I switched up the outside frame and made it a different color from my inside panel and I decided to make my orchid colors pop more.

I also went with more matching colors for the background repeated sentiment and the die cut focal sentiment, as opposed to the quite different, black and chartreuse, in the original. Anyone else still fawning over the new Weathervane grey??? I’m obsessed. It goes with everything. πŸ™‚

By using a white panel in the background instead of a matching Spring Moss panel, the repeated sentiment pops more and creates added texture and interest behind the focal point. This draws the eye in and that orchid locks it down! πŸ˜‰

Welcome to another release day at Papertrey Ink! We have some super fun new products to share with you today from Dawn McVey and Lizzie Jones.

Kicking things off is the card I made using July’s Glorious Globes set. One of the things I have really loved about Lizzie’s Globes series is all the nature she incorporates into many of the globes. From flowers to leaves, they always make me happy to look at and play with.

This month’s may be one of my favorite sets so far and I had a ton of fun creating this card that didn’t even use them in the intended globe format.

For my next project I really took the Ombre idea to heart. I used three different ink colors and blended them together on my stamp before pressing to the paper. The repeat stamping made for a fun background/sentiment and I used the Pierced Feature Frames dies in Melon Berry to bring in more color from the sentiments.

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink kit n caboodle lizzie jones

I created a purely clean and simple card for this set and I tried to make the kitty peeking out look just like mine. I have a kitten named Gypsy and she’s a torti so I mixed blacks, browns, and tans to create the color.

I used the Shape Shifters square die to cut 4 times right next to each other and then turned it on it’s side to make a diamond. I layered it over top of some of the new Bitty Big Berry Sorbet and used some black paint splatters to compliment the sentiment.

This card showcases the very unique and happy set Yellow Sunshine by Rebecca Luminarias. I decided to use this adorable sentiment and accent it with a rainbow and a few raindrops on the ends.

The background has the Bold Borders Prism peaking through.

I love the light and airy feel that came out from this!

This next set by Heather Nichols really hit me in all the right places! I am not a big pennant person in general but you can use these sentiments for anythinggggggg. They are so dang cute and I’m OBSESSED with the compass and “go your own way” types of sentiments. Amazing.

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink banners and pennants heather nichols

I definitely tend to do my own thing whether that’s good or not lol so I loved the message this card gave out.
