Words to Live By: Joyful + Bold Borders: Yuletide + Pierced Feature Frames: Oval + Corner Adorner: September

Hellooooo again dear crafty friends! I am THRILLED to finally show you this month’s Corner Adorner by my lovely lovely friend, Lizzie Jones. Christmas lights you guys… Christmas lights…

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink Words to Live By: Joyful + Bold Borders: Yuletide + Pierced Feature Frames: Oval + Corner Adorner: September

For this project I am using the old fashioned larger bulbs, which I heat embossed in gold glitter, in the larger formation… but I used this set on a different project you will see another day that showcases the smaller formation with the newer light bulbs in colors… they are just SO CUTE.

I really wanted to show off the beauty in this set so I made the background of this card in Smokey Shadow and used the Pierced Feature Frame as a subtle accent. I’m obsessed with this set.

So for another way you can all use the incredible Bold Borders series, I trimmed a piece off to layer the bottom of a tag with. Don’t be scared to move these suckers around, trim them, overlap them, and just get creative! They don’t need to be used as borders every time and I think you will really enjoy thinking out of the box with them.

The latest in Betsy Veldman’s Words to Live By series is Joyful. The fonts are adorable as usual and the sentiments are simply perfect. This series is an always must have that will brighten your stash and add something different to your sentiments on every card.

Winter Fox + Text & Texture: Wood Slices + Sending You Comfort + Hinged Gift Card Box: Christmas Window

Welcome to the second day of the Papertrey Ink September release countdown! How did you like everything we shared with you yesterday? Are you ready for even more fun and adorableness today??! (totally a word…)

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink Winter Fox + Text & Texture: Wood Slices + Sending You Comfort + Hinged Gift Card Box: Christmas Window

Starting out with Winter Fox by Heather Nichols and Text and Texture: Wood Slices by Betsy Veldman! This little fox is so. dang. cute. I was so excited to work with him! I blended a couple different colors together to get the red I really wanted for his fur and I love how he turned out.

I chose to create the wood slices in Soft Stone on Soft Stone for a really subtle texture in the back. It’s a little more prominent in person but still very soft. 🙂 And those greys… Weathervane ya’ll!

Next up is an interesting combination of a brand new sympathy stamp set called Sending You Comfort by Kimberly Crawford… and a new window die for the previously released Hinged Gift Card Box called Christmas Window, by Lizzie Jones.

I decided to create a card with these combos and I’m showcasing the “So Very Merry” sentiment die from Lizzie’s set. The other die says “From Santa” and is SO CUTE!!! You will love both of these. They will look adorable on tags too!!! Not just cards and gift boxes! So definitely don’t write this one off if you don’t have the coordinating box die yet.

Hey all! Do we have a treat for you today! Lizzie Jones has and ADORABLE new set called Kit N Caboodle and it. is. darling.

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink kit n caboodle lizzie jones

I created a purely clean and simple card for this set and I tried to make the kitty peeking out look just like mine. I have a kitten named Gypsy and she’s a torti so I mixed blacks, browns, and tans to create the color.

Here’s a picture of my kitty for you guys. 🙂 I made a scrapbook page about her a while ago haha. I love her.

I used the Shape Shifters square die to cut 4 times right next to each other and then turned it on it’s side to make a diamond. I layered it over top of some of the new Bitty Big Berry Sorbet and used some black paint splatters to compliment the sentiment.

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?

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink how are you today words to live by laugh betsy veldman rebecca luminarias

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.
