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.

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™‚

I had to pair this adorable fence with the Farmers Market Florals in at least one card today, aren’t they just perfect for each other?!

The Noted dies are perfect for adding some structure to a uniquely shaped card as well.

My next project was really fun… I created an arbor by using two of the fences (or cutting one in half depending on the size you want) with a trimmed Gatsby Glamour frame. I wanted to create an outdoor wedding scene but it would be fun to use this idea to create a garden scene as well!

The sentiment and banner are from the previously released Choose Joy stamp set.

My first project is showcasing Betsy Veldman’s new sets… Geode Layer Dies and Text and Texture Agate stamps. This particular card was so fun to put together because my sweet daughter LOVES collecting “special” rocks. We can’t take this girl anywhere without her finding something cool on the ground and her begging to take it home to wash it. She’s just the cutest.

My color inspiration came from this image I found on Pinterest…

I used little bits from the Shaker and Sprinkles kit to create the crystals in the center. ๐Ÿ™‚

My next project is showing off the latest from Lizzie Jones… her monthly Glorious Globes April as well as Sentiment Staples Congratulations.

I took this set in a bit of a different direction this time by turning one of the circles into a floral focal point. It’s accents are created with Circle Scribbles dies and Doodlie Do coordinating dies.

Project numero uno is a lovely light and airy hugs card. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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 // Flower Power & Window Works

Hey hey hey!! Welcome back!! Today I am focusing on the Flower Power stamp and die set along with the new Window Works die collection.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Flower Power Don't Forget to Write Window Works Keep It Simple Congratulations

Starting things off with all the Flower Power goodness!! I stamped my flowers on kraft cardstock and then colored over top of them with colored pencils. I masked off the edge of one side of the flowers so I could stamp my sentiment along a straight line.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Flower Power Don't Forget to Write Window Works Keep It Simple Congratulations

And for something completely random that I’ve never done before… I outlined my stamped images in black and then used white to accent them a bit. Can’t tell you why, just thought I’d try it out! haha

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Flower Power Don't Forget to Write Window Works Keep It Simple Congratulations

And finally these Window Works dies… THEY ARE THE COOLEST!!! Now I love a good frame/window/design detail die so these are like gold to me. I used the circular one for this card and the Keep It Simple: Congratulations sentiment in the background for a bold pop of dark.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Flower Power Don't Forget to Write Window Works Keep It Simple Congratulations

The paper is the new Bitty Big: Aqua Mist (all together now… YAYYYYYYYYY BITTY BIG AQUA MIST!!!!) and the floral group is from a past Make It Market Kit: Don’t Forget to Write. I accented the card with seam binding and a bit of Smokey Shadow Twill Tape.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the Papertrey Blog for everyone elseโ€™s projects!

Much love friends.
