Glorious Globes: January // Papertrey Ink Featured Post

Today is all about the Glorious Globes and I have three fun cards to show you today! Let’s dive in with the first card which started out as a masculine card and ended up being uber feminine!

Once I cut out the Scallop Stacker dies in Weathervane and Smokey Shadow I immediately switched my focus from creating a men’s card to more of a pink Valentine’s card. I LOVE how it turned out. The flowers in this card are from the SAF Community Garden set and I thought they accented the adorable love globe perfectly.

A little Raspberry Fizz Bitty Big and twine finish off this cute little number and may have sent it into my January 2019 release Hall of Fame… we all pick favorite cards we make from time to time… right?!

My next card is a fun green and textured project.

I used a Spring Moss Bitty Big behind a white Shape Shifters die as the backdrop for this card, giving it immediate texture.

The globe takes front and center this time atop books from the original Globes set. I adore the map image on this globe. So traditional and precise.

Twine is the perfect finish for this card, giving it a down to earth taste.

And finally I can’t go a release without an all white card! (You know me.) For this one I overlayed the new Bold Borders in white on white and accented it with black paint drops.

I kept the love globe simple and used the “you” from the Bold Borders to finish off the sentiment so it reads “love you.”

Thank you so very much for perusing my blog today. I think you will all be super excited to see what’s being released tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜‰ Much love fam!

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…

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.

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 ofย  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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

This next set by Heather Nichols really hit me in all the right places! I am not a big pennant person in general but you can use these sentiments for anythinggggggg. They are so dang cute and I’m OBSESSED with the compass and “go your own way” types of sentiments. Amazing.

I definitely tend to do my own thing whether that’s good or not lol so I loved the message this card gave out.

To make my first project I combined two of the corners and made them into a new fun shape that is almost a bit ornate!

I used the Woodgrain stencil to create the texture in the background and of course added a little twine… a la me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

As for Bold Borders, I really wanted to show off the sunshine aspect in this sentiment so I used three different yellow cardstock colors to create a happy sunny vibe under my bright white Bold Borders die cut. The butterfly is from Heather’s Travelers Journal stamp set, Field Notes!
