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 card showcases the very unique and happy set Yellow Sunshine by Rebecca Luminarias. I decided to use this adorable sentiment and accent it with a rainbow and a few raindrops on the ends.

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.

Good morning all! Today we have three more wonderful continuations of Lizzie Jones’ super fun series’… Bold Borders, Sentiment Staples, and Corner Adorner!

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Bold Borders wave corner adorner wave lizzie jones

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!

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Bold Borders wave corner adorner wave lizzie jones

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!

Sweet Treats + Big Ice Cream Cone + Bold Borders Shine // Featured Post

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink sweet treats big ice cream cone die bold borders shine

Hey all! I’m up for a featured post and I am alllllllllll about the ice cream today! ๐Ÿ˜‰

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink sweet treats big ice cream cone die bold borders shine

How adorable is this set, you guys?! I’m dying over here. I knew right away I wanted to make a monster of an ice cream cone (inspired by the giant eyes of my children at our local creamery) and I wanted as many flavors/colors as possible on my cone!

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink sweet treats big ice cream cone die bold borders shine

And this card of course had to use the “here’s the scoop” sentiment and I embossed it in black to make it pop on top of all the colors.

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink sweet treats big ice cream cone die bold borders shine

And finally, I popped that whole panel up on top of the latest gorgeous bold borders dies. These border dies are so much fun and really take your card up a notch.

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink sweet treats big ice cream cone die bold borders shine

My second card really shows off the Bold Borders die and you can see exactly why it’s called “Shine.” I used Vintage Jadeite cardstock (which reminds me of a sorbet color).

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink sweet treats big ice cream cone die bold borders shine

The sentiment is an offset in Raspberry Fizz and Hawaiian.

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink sweet treats big ice cream cone die bold borders shine

And finally this ice cream cone was created using the faux sprinkles from the previously released Shakers and Sprinkles set (still available! click link below!). I covered the whole scoop in the sprinkles and I LOVE how it turned out! ๐Ÿ™‚

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink sweet treats big ice cream cone die bold borders shine

And last but not least I used the Big Ice Cream Cone die to create this modern ice cream card.

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink sweet treats big ice cream cone die bold borders shine

I created the black watercolor stripes for a bold background and to accent the sentiment.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! We will see you all the rest of this week for more fun new product introductions!

Botanical Bounty + Bold Borders Flare

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink botanical bounty sentiment staples congratulations bold borders flare

Today I have a card for you showing off the newest set from Jennifer Campbell, Botanical Bounty, as well as the latest in the Bold Borders series from Lizzie Jones, Flare.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink botanical bounty sentiment staples congratulations bold borders flare

I combined a couple of the strips from the bold borders to create one solid block to use as a design accent. I LOVE how it turned out… don’t you just love when your ideas translate?? Almost never happens… haha

The flower is created using one of my favorite techniques, inking up your stamp and spritzing with water before impressing. For this flower I combined New Leaf, Green Parakeet, Summer Sunrise, and Lemon Tart. The sentiment is from Lizzie’s Sentiment Staples Congratulations set. ๐Ÿ™‚
