Throwback Thursdays: Delicate Details

Hello all! It’s time for another throwback with Papertrey Ink! Today we get to showcase one of my *favorite* past die collections… Delicate Details!! Yayyyyyaaaaaa Seriously I put these die cuts on everything… I add them to the bottom of tags, hitched on the string of tags, to gift bags, to cards… everything!! But today I wanted to show you how to create a quick and simple card using the largest die cut as a focal point.

I cut out the largest die in Enchanted Evening and Limeade Ice and layered them on my card base.

I popped up two white panels on either side so that the die cuts are now set back into the card.

The sentiment is from Keep It Simple: Thank You and using two of the fonts, it adds an extra bit of color as well.

Throwback Thursday // Mini Blooms

Hello my friends! Today is Throwback Thursday with Papertrey Ink and I can’t wait to share this week’s stamp set with you… Mini Blooms!!!

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink throwback thursday mini blooms

This quickly became one of my favorite sets. It was originally designed by the great Maile Belles and has her innovation and charm all over it. This set is deceptively large and gives you so many options for creating fun floral arrangements with a trendy/fresh vibe.

I paired my florals today with a background created with the Bitty Big: Soft Stone and Mix & Mat: Plaid and created a little twine wrap along two of the sides for some added whimsy.

And my last project shows a light an airy card for the clean and simples out there. πŸ˜‰

I used the center of the Mix & Mat die to create a stencil out of thick cardstock and then used texture paste to add a bit of a snow effect.

Birthday Balloons + Birthday Strings

How have you all been loving the Papertrey release so far?? Make sure you stop by the Papertrey Team Blog to see all the projects from the DT! πŸ˜‰

Today we are introducing Birthday Balloons and Birthday Strings.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Birthday Balloons Birthday Strings

The base of my card is made by stamping Birthday Strings sentiments repeatedly in different colors. I stamped over top of them in grey with some dots from Polka Dot Basics (these never go out of style). The focal point is the balloon which I stamped in black and embossed the mini “wish big” sentiment in white. I was trying to get a more masculine friendly design for this one.

The string is made of natural twine that is adhered in place. πŸ™‚
