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.

I paired these two with some Bitty Big: Soft Stone and chose a small and subtle sentiment for the top left and bottom right corners. I just adore the flower focus on the GG:Feb set.

Next is all about Lilies of the Field and Words to Live By: Kindness… both by Betsy Veldman. I went with a light and airy color palette for this card, letting the flowers really take the spotlight of my card. I’m SOOOO glad Bets included this sentiment in her WTLB set… I love anything that talks about being humble and working hard. 🙂

Corner Adorner: February + Sentiment Staples: Birthday

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink corner adorner february sentiment staples birthday

Welcome to Day 2 of the release countdown with Papertrey Ink! I am so happy to be here with you all to help showcase another couple of lovely new sets this month. 🙂 Today I am featuring Corner Adorner: February + Sentiment Staples: Birthday.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink corner adorner february sentiment staples birthday

I created this card using a bit of a grunge mix of colors. I love how they end up looking when all the colors blend together. It has a relaxed feel to it that I appreciate. 🙂 The sentiment was created by first generation stamping the “sending you sunshine” from corner adorner and then using a deconstructed happy birthday sentiment popped up on top of that.

Happppppppppy hopping ya’ll!! Are you joining along in today’s challenge? It happens to be one of my favorites each year Papertrey does it. 🙂 AND we have some fun Easter goodies to share with you today!! Starting with the Big Egg Die, Bunny Blessings, and Egg Stripes.

I created an ombre 3d egg using different colored purple cardstocks and stamped each one differently. I sewed them together using black and white twine and used a Delicate Detail die to accent the top and bottom. It sort of reminded me of one of those really ornate eggs you see at Easter time. 🙂

My next project is showcasing a brand new die set from Lizzie Jones, Bold Borders: Blooming, as well as our very first set from new Product Designer, Jennifer Campbell.

I started by layering two of the border dies off set in Stormy Sea and Dark Indigo. The sentiment is embossed in black on polka dotted vellum and attached to the card using a mini clothespin.

The card is accented with some white thread and seam binding. 🙂

Papertrey Ink 2018 Anniversary Set

Happy 11th anniversary festivities Papertrey lovers!! I am THRILLEDDDDDD to be helping showcase this years gorgeous anniversary set which is called Mixed Bouquet. I have been hinting on the forum that there is something special and unique with this years set and I finally get to tell you!! YAYYYY!!

So here is the scoop… Mixed Bouquet is a collaborative stamp set designed by SEVEN of our incredible product designers. Each lovely lady designed a set of florals and together they make up this beautiful bouquet. Here’s a break down of the set and who designed who. 😉

Now onto the project!

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink 2018 anniversary set mixed bouquet

I created this flat, one layer card by using the water spritz technique. After inking up my stamps in one to two colors, I sprayed it once with water and then stamped it. This creates a subtle water color type of design without losing much definition.

The twine accent was created by making a mini braid. 🙂 I’m such a sucker for braids. haha
