Hello all! It’s time for another throwback with Papertrey Ink! Today we get to showcase one of my *favorite* past die collections… Delicate Details!! Yayyyyyaaaaaa Seriously I put these die cuts on everything… I add them to the bottom of tags, hitched on the string of tags, to gift bags, to cards… everything!! But today I wanted to show you how to create a quick and simple card using the largest die cut as a focal point.

I cut out the largest die in Enchanted Evening and Limeade Ice and layered them on my card base.

I popped up two white panels on either side so that the die cuts are now set back into the card.

The sentiment is from Keep It Simple: Thank You and using two of the fonts, it adds an extra bit of color as well.

Goooooooood morning!! How is everyone’s week going? I have been sick all week and I am finally starting to feel a bit better so it’s a good one for me! 🙂 I have a little project for you today that I made for a friend – a Pink Paislee Cedar Lane card and gift set.

I basically wanted to put a gift card into something prettier than simply adding it to the card so I made this adorable pillow box and stuffed it in there instead. 🙂 Everyone loves opening presents, right?! I coordinated the papers and themes for the card and gift so they matched and I think they turned out so cute!!

The card uses Papertrey Ink’s Delicate Details die cut and a punch by Martha Stewart.

The pillow box was created using a die by PTI as well and another Delicate Details die. I snuck in one of the Cedar Lane arrows too… those little guys are too fun!! This is my first time working with Pink Paislee’s Cedar Lane collection, but check out some tags I made with the Pink Paislee C’est La Vie kit here.

Thanks for stopping by!

birthday wishes card set - goldensimplicity.com

Hello dears! Happy early Thanksgiving! I have been going through birthday cards like crazy lately so I decided to make myself a birthday wishes card set so I could quickly grab one every time I needed a last minute birthday card. I used a stamp from a $5 mini Papertrey Ink stamp set, a bunch of floral ephemera from Maggie Holmes Open Book Collection, and pattern paper from her collection as well.

I switched up one of the cards with a Delicate Details die cut from PTI, a border die from Sizzix, & the Maggie Holmes Confetti leaf dies.

Isn’t all the glitter fun?! I should probably make a more masculine birthday card wishes set too… 😉 Much love friends!

Hello everyone! The card I have for you today was inspired (and created with) a Project Life wood veneer card. This adorable chevron wood veneer piece came in one of Studio Calico’s kits and I instantly fell in love. I used white Mr. Huey’s to wash out the color a bit, but it warped when it got wet so I put it underneath a few super heavy books overnight to even it back out.

I used Papertrey Ink’s Delicate Details & Embellished Elegance dies to create the leaves and the sentiment piece in the center. The idea for this card was to really keep it light and white.

Hello and happy Wednesday! I’m bringing back some older Studio Calico card kits for today’s card, specifically the Poet Society kits from a few months ago. I used white Mister Huey’s to paint a subtle white finish on these wood veneer rectangles and while they dried, I stamped some light polka dots across my card base. I adhered a Delicate Details die cut from Papertrey Ink and then adhered the wood veneer rectangles on top. I stamped and die cut the flower and leaves with Papertrey Ink’s Beautiful Brushstrokes kit on top of the SC pattern papers. And finally I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of gray paper and adhered it on the rectangles.

Have a wonderful rest of your week! Happy crafting!
