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 ofΒ  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. πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ˜‰

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.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink August 2017 Hey Stacks

Its the last day of our Papertrey Inspiration Explosion and today we are showcasing the super fun Hey Stacks and the oh so useful Stencil Basics: Dots set. Starting off with Hey Stacks!!!

I created a little rainbow of stripes (or blocks I suppose) and added in subtle numbers in the same color… I was sort going for that whole rotating clock/time thing. Do you know what I am talking about?? Anyway, I love how it turned out and can’t wait to give this card away. I have quite a few friends turning 30 right about now so it’s the perfect occasion. πŸ™‚

For my second card, I really wanted to show off both the large dotted stencil and the small dotted stencil.

For the larger dots I went with a white texture paste and for the smaller dots, I ink blended them onto a tag. At first I thought both dots might be too much on one card but I was WRONGGGGG! They are perfect. πŸ™‚
