Corner Adorner July // Papertrey Ink July Release

Hey all! Welcome to the kick off of Papertrey Ink’s July Release!! Today I am showcasing the latest in my lovely friend Lizzie Jones’ series, Corner Adorner. And you need this one. Seriously.

So instead of using these gorgeous stamps for their intended use, I decided to create a fun and unexpected focal point in the center of my card. By using only two corners for the focal point I completed the look by stamping the sentiment on the other two sides.

The blues were colored in using pencils and I placed the whole thing on Dark Indigo cardstock. I adore the unique look it ended up with. 🙂

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

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. 😉

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!

Dapper Chap + Shape Up Tuxedo + Corner Adorner April + Words to Live by + Shape Shifters Square

***I wanted to thank you all for your patience today… it seems our internet is going bonkers and it’s been a challenge to get this post working! Hoping you are all having a beautiful Friday!***

What genius idea… am I right?! Lizzie is at it again with her brilliant gift card dies and today’s has taken the cake!

This quite clever set of dies gives you so many options to put together a gorgeous suit for the man in your life and you can even slip a gift card inside! I chose to put this outfit on the front of a card for my project today but I am a little obsessed with this set.

Don’t be scared off if it looks complicated!! Lizzie put together a wonderful video that you can use to follow along when you put this guy together for the first time (because it’s honestly simpler than it looks and you probably won’t need to watch the video more than once). And of course the Dapper Chap stamp and die set coordinate perfectly. I’m loving the “nicely done, sir” sentiment. 🙂

For the latest Corner Adorner set we have a more artsy design for you this month. Create artisticly impressive card designs in a snap! I chose to go with a super watercolor and carefree feel with mine and used the negatives from the Shape Shifters Square die to add just a bit of unexpected fun to the bottom.

This card design will undoubtedly not be everyone’s cup of tea but it may be one of my favorites from this release haha. (Check out artist Lourdes Sanchez if you’re a fan of abstract watercolor art)

Corner Adorner: February + Sentiment Staples: Birthday

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink corner adorner february sentiment staples birthday

Welcome to Day 2 of the release countdown with Papertrey Ink! I am so happy to be here with you all to help showcase another couple of lovely new sets this month. 🙂 Today I am featuring Corner Adorner: February + Sentiment Staples: Birthday.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink corner adorner february sentiment staples birthday

I created this card using a bit of a grunge mix of colors. I love how they end up looking when all the colors blend together. It has a relaxed feel to it that I appreciate. 🙂 The sentiment was created by first generation stamping the “sending you sunshine” from corner adorner and then using a deconstructed happy birthday sentiment popped up on top of that.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Looking forward to showing you the rest of the release!! 🙂
