Throwback Thursday // Counting My Blessings

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink throwback thursday counting my blessings

Welcome to this week’s edition of Throwback Thursday with Papertrey Ink! Today, Betsy, Melissa Phillips and I are revising the Counting My Blessings stamps and die set.

бледно-желтый, бордовый, вишневый, коричневый, красный, оранжевый, оттенки желтого, оттенки осени, палитра для осени, подбор цвета, подбор цвета для осени, фиолетовый, шафрановый, яркий красный.

I used this color scheme as inspiration for my card, coordinating the Papertrey colors: Royal Velvet, Amethyst Allure, Scarlett Jewel, Summer Sunrise and Harvest Gold. Obviously the colors aren’t a complete match but they are similar enough to where the color scheme still works. If you are ever in need of some color inspiration, don’t be shy to search them up on Pinterest!! There are so many out there that are sure to lend some spark for your imagination.

I used the colors on the border from Seasonal Borders: Autumn and coordinated the sentiments above and below (from Counting My Blessings).

I kept my background relatively light by cutting the Stitched Cover Plate from Rustic White card stock and layering it atop Bitty Big: Kraft. All together I think it turned out just lovely and festive.

Throwback Thursday: Phrase Play #9

Hey all! Today is Throwback Thursday with Papertrey Ink and I am so excited to show you the project I made for today. 🙂

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink throwback thursday phrase play 9

I created a card with coordinating gift box using mainly JUST the Phrase Play #9 stamp and die set. By running the die through multiple times in different colors, you create different colored snowflakes and sentiment strips with ease. I went with traditional Christmas colors but you could use any colors you’d like!!

By using the Bitty Big: Soft Stone in the large plaid, I added extra texture and interest in the gift box. And to keep things coordinated, I stamped on the card using the Soft Stone Ink as well.

I tried to make it easier to see in this picture but the “greetings” sentiment strip has a background stamped purely in Soft Stone “treats” to tie in the Soft Stone color. I also ran the card base through with the Woodgrain Metal Stencil for added texture on my card.

The “WINTER” sentiment is backed with vellum and popped up with multiple layers of foam tape. The vellum adds just enough fade so you can’t see the adhesive underneath (this helps so you don’t have to get super picky in adhesive placement). 🙂

That’s it for me today!! Do you like putting together coordinating cards and gift boxes?? I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. 🙂

Project numero uno is a lovely light and airy hugs card. 🙂 The background is made with the latest Bitty Big series in Soft Stone (YASSSSS!). These new florals by Dawn McVey may be my favorite floral stamps EVERRRRRR. They are called Farmers Market Florals and I’m friggin obsessed.

The new Mix & Mat: Hearts is as lovely as you would imagine it to be. It’s perfect for Valentine’s, anniversaries, weddings, or even just fun feminine cards. I love a good heart and the addition of the arrows has my heart fluttering. 🙂

The sentiments are created with two new sets, Huge Sentiments and Everyday Affection. You want these. You need these. You will USE these.

My second project is more of those florals (because… FLORALS people!!) and those Huge Sentiment Dies.

I created a soft background using neutrals with the Farmers Market stamps and then accented them with a larger floral in Hawaiian Shores and Tropical Teal. The sentiment is a two layer die in Soft Stone and Hawaiian Shores.

Papertrey Ink // To The Point Edger Dies 2

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink to the point edgers pen and ink snowflakes

Hey again!! Today I am focusing on the latest To The Point Edgers 2 Dies! I made this simple card by die cutting a little edger strip and layered it on the bottom of a white cardstock panel that was die cut with the same edger die.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink to the point edgers pen and ink snowflakes

The sentiment is from the new Pen & Ink stamp set and the bottom pattern paper is the new Dark Indigo Bitty Big. 🙂 I also created a fun little winter embellishment by cutting a Silver White Winter die from Aqua Mist felt and layering a beaded wire wrapped in white string (from the Wonderland trimmings kit).
