Welcome welcome! Today for Papertrey Ink’s release we are talking all about the second edition of Jennifer Campbell’s gorgeous floral collection, Botanical Bounty 2.

Jennifer has done it again and made even more beautiful flowers. For this rainbow card I used some additional ink on a paintbrush and made some outlines around the edges for a more distinct detail.

And who doesn’t love a good rainbow???

A good tip for this technique is to use an ink color two shades darker than your flower for the outline color.

You all know I am all about the light and airy cards. For this one I used my favorite technique of spraying the ink on the stamp before pressing it to the paper. It gives such a soft look and blends ink colors seamlessly.

For a fun added detail, I punched small holes around the bottom of my floral bunch and tied twine through them. I thought it turned out so cute!

That pattern strip in the background is the newest Bitty Big, Tropical Teal.

For my final project I really want to show off all the stamps together. I used a wholeeeeee bunch of different ones from the set in coordinating colors to create this beautiful background.

The tag is made from Harvest Gold Bitty Big and the background color is in Berry Sorbet. It adds such a nice pop of color for a truly springy card.

Words to Live By: Laugh + How Are You Today

Welcome back to another day of an awesome Papertrey Ink release week! Today I am showcasing the latest from the Words To Live By series… Laugh… as well as a brand new set from Rebecca Luminarias called How Are You Today?

I first created a background using a tone on tone of Autumn Rose flowers with the outlines in black. I used coordinating cardstock colors from the (SUPER high quality, if you haven’t tried it yet) Perfect Match collection.

And how CUTE is that sentiment?!! I LOVE it!!! The flower in this set is so darling and there are actually a lot of different pairings you can use to make a whole bunch of different flowers.

For the inside of my card I played off the front sentiment and used the “you make me laugh” from the Words to Live By set.

I tied in the Tropical Teal on the seahorses with a strip from the newest Bitty Big pattern papers, and brought out the black in the sentiment by adding black paint splatters.

Cover Up Hexagons + Forest Floor Summer + Seasonal Borders Summer + Noted Pinked Edge 2 // Papertrey Ink

Yay for flowers and berries!!!!!! Today’s projects may be some of my favorites from this month’s release and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

So I’m going to start with my absolute favorite. These berries were screaming country home watercolored goodness. I used the Cover Up stamp to create a bit of a chicken wire look and multiple colors of ink to get multi-shade dimension on the berries and vines.

A little Natural Jute Twine is the perfect finisher for this homey card.

This next card showcases our latest release in Bitty Big colors… Limeade Ice! Limeade Ice has always been one of my favorite colors and seeing it in all these patterns has put a huge smile on my face. The seasonal borders for this release are super tropical and look beautiful alongside the Noted Pinked Edge dies.
