Welcome to this month’s Papertrey Ink release!! We are listening hard to all of your suggestions/opinions and we are switching things back to a version of the “old way” haha. Today I am featuring the brand new sentiment stamp set, Little Lift Me Ups as well as the new background stamp, Background Basics: Birch.

My first project showcases the entire background stamp being used as a backdrop for my card. The sentiment is front and center paneled on layers of cardstock and the focal point in addition to the sentiment is the braided and knotted natural twine.

My second project is this sweet little tag! I used Soft Stone cardstock for the background and Smokey Shadow for the birch stamp. I cut and trimmed True Black and Smokey Shadow cardstock to line the top of the tag and cut up the sentiment for added interest.

The ribbon finishes the tag off – I used Aqua Mist and Smokey Shadow Twill Tape Ribbon.

And my final project adds a bit of flowery fun! I started by embossing the two outer dies from the new Mix & Mat: Plaid collection and taping off the inside. The inside is then stamped with the Birch Background stamp and removed.

I used the sweet bunch of pre-printed flowers from the Bloom & Grow mini kit and wrapped it all up in a bit of rustic twine!

Hey there friends!! Did you all have fun celebrating Halloween?? My kids LOVE dressing up so they had such a blast. My sweet girl was a fairy for one party and Princess Belle for another… and my sweet boy was a puppy for one and Gecko from Disney’s PJ Masks for another! I just adore watching their excitement while we have fun with friends. 🙂 To see a photo from the evening check out my Instagram page HERE.

Now onto the Papertrey Throwback Thursday fun!!

Background Basics: Sheet Music is one of those sets that is so versatile, you could EASILY match it up with almost any other set, theme, holiday, etc. Since we’ve been in a Christmas kick lately I decided to match it up with the lovely new Sing a Song of Christmas stamps and dies.

The sentiment is stamped onto one of the Bookmark dies (previously released) and then the sheet music accents the theme below. I mixed Saffron Spice and Bright Buttercup for a fun muted color combination that wouldn’t compete too much with the rest of the card.

The Bitty Big: Pure Poppy cardstock adds that color pop at the bottom and the Treble Clef die perfectly accentuates the card’s theme.

The card is finished off with some embellishments from the Wonderland Trimmings Kit. I actually put that thin red striped ribbon through my Xyron and made it a mini washi to stick right across the card front. 🙂

Thanks so much for joining me today!! Be sure to check out with the other ladies have designed with this awesome set and have a wonderful weekend!!
