Throwback Thursday // Splat

Hey there folks!! Welcome to this week’s Throwback Thursday with Papertrey Ink! Today we are revisiting the stamp set Splat.

The rougher edges of these circular stamps made me think they were perfect for an artsy card. After stamping onto watercolor paper, I added water to each circle with a paintbrush and let it drip down the front of the card.

Give it some time to dry and then add a few black paint splatters to hammer that artsy look home. The twine ties in the black color for consistency.

Forest Floor + Fence Line + Bold Borders

Today is all about new releases in a series! We are exploring fun ways to use the latest editions in the Forest Floor, Fence Line, and Bold Borders stamp die series.

Starting off with the new Bold Borders and Fence Line. I die cut two separate Bold Borders and laid them down in opposite directions. This gave those beautiful leaves a chance to sit about each other as opposed to simply on top ofย  one another, and show off two different, beautiful cardstock colors.

I chose to use just a few of the accent pieces from the Fence Line set as a way to bring in more fall colors, but truly let the dies from Bold Borders take the lead. Also, I’m obsessed with those teeny tiny birds. ๐Ÿ™‚

Mushrooms!!!! Lizzie made the cutesttttttttttt little mushrooms for this season’s Forest Floor set so obviously I had to stamp them a bunch of times. I went with a clean and simple design for this set, opting to let the images create dimension by masking them off before stamping, and keep the card as flat as possible.

They are just so cute (and after I stamped them in red I keep picturing Toad from Mario lol… I don’t know why, but I digress…) I wanted the sentiment to stay tiny so I built one out of a few of the smaller stamps and kept them deconstructed in my design.

You all ready to shop tomorrow?! It’s going to be a great one so be sure to get your cart ready tomorrow the 15th at 10pm ET, on Papertrey Ink’s web site!

I hope you enjoyed everything from this release and I will see you all again before you know it ๐Ÿ™‚

Sentiment Staples: Thanksgiving + Frame It Out: Many Blessings

Welcome to Day 4! Who is loving the new products so far? Didn’t the Product Designers knock it out of the park? (As per usual… but I’m biased lol). Let’s keep the momentum going!

I have one card for you today showcasing the beautiful new set, Frame It Out: Many Blessings. I dry embossed the die from this set directly onto my card base and heat embossed over top using white embossing powder. The “blessings” sentiment is created using black embossing powder and the sweet mini sentiment is from Sentiment Staples: Thanksgiving.

I love how nice and simple this card turned out.

Tomorrow is Day 5 and you won’t want to miss it!!

Seasonal Borders + Shape Shifters + Words to Live By + Text & Texture

It’s day 3 of Papertrey Ink’s August release and today we have some lovely Autumn themed products for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

Starting off I have a card featuring predominantly fall themed products, but I wanted to show you a way to use them a little bit different so you don’t feel like you only can use them one season per year!

I went with a monochromatic color scheme using greys and blacks for my leaves on the card base. The shape shifters is so beautiful, but I wanted to show it off in a way that doesn’t create a focal point so I left it all white and accented my sentiment with a big pop of color. And of course… a little twine to finish it off… you know me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The next Text and Texture from Betsy Veldman is, Leaves! She did such a beautiful job designing a background stamp that almost creates a rubbing feel. I used a couple different greens on my background and kept the front of my card nice and simple.

Thanks for stopping by! Much love all.

You Made My Day + Say It Simply + Glorious Globes + Scallop Stackers

Welcome back to Day 2 of Papertrey Ink’s August new release! My first project showcases one of the lovely new sets by Rebecca Luminarias, You Made My Day, along with the August edition of Lizzie Jones’ Glorious Globes series.

I repeat stamped the large “Grateful” sentiment in the background to add extra texture and used the adorable globe to be the focal point, as well as add to my background sentiment.

The Scallop Stacker small die cut sits atop a Simply Chartreuse card base and a rustic twine wrapped around the new Shape Shifters adds a bit of whimsy.

My second project today is a light and airy card that accents the beautiful dies from the new Say It Simply: Wishing You A Lovely Birthday, by Dawn McVey. The background was created using Text & Texture: Roses, and I strung some twine through the holes in the Scallop Stackers for a little fun.

Thanks so much for stopping by! See you tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜‰
