Botanical Bounty 2

Welcome welcome! Today for Papertrey Ink’s release we are talking all about the second edition of Jennifer Campbell’s gorgeous floral collection, Botanical Bounty 2.

Jennifer has done it again and made even more beautiful flowers. For this rainbow card I used some additional ink on a paintbrush and made some outlines around the edges for a more distinct detail.

And who doesn’t love a good rainbow???

A good tip for this technique is to use an ink color two shades darker than your flower for the outline color.

You all know I am all about the light and airy cards. For this one I used my favorite technique of spraying the ink on the stamp before pressing it to the paper. It gives such a soft look and blends ink colors seamlessly.

For a fun added detail, I punched small holes around the bottom of my floral bunch and tied twine through them. I thought it turned out so cute!

That pattern strip in the background is the newest Bitty Big, Tropical Teal.

For my final project I really want to show off all the stamps together. I used a wholeeeeee bunch of different ones from the set in coordinating colors to create this beautiful background.

The tag is made from Harvest Gold Bitty Big and the background color is in Berry Sorbet. It adds such a nice pop of color for a truly springy card.

Papertrey Ink // Celebrating the Past, Present and Future: 2015

Hello again and welcome!! I wanted to start this post out by saying a massive thank you to all of you. It’s been a whirlwind of a start with Papertrey and really wonderful. You have all been so kind and supportive and I just wanted to let you know how thankful I am! Alrighty… let’s get on to today then… 2015’s set You’ve Been Framed: Hexagon:

You've Been Framed: Hexagon Mini Stamp SetPapertrey Ink - You've Been Framed: Hexagon Die

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Design Team You've Been Framed Hexagon Rosie Posie

This set is so much fun to work with. The way the die cuts a thin outline allows for so many opportunities to mix and match pieces and create different designs. I also adore how the shape of the hexagon can be transformed into a really masculine design very easily or a very feminine design as well.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Design Team You've Been Framed Hexagon Beautiful Brushstrokes

My first card is created by repeatedly stamping flowers on my card base and then layering the thin Hexagon frame on top. I kept the colors light and neutral for an airy feel.

My second card used Polka Dot Basics on Aqua Mist cardstock to create a pattern paper effect for the top of the Hexagon. I stamped the inside of the Hexagon in Soft Stone for a subtle texture and accented the entire card with a bit of grey paint splatters.

For this first card I used the oh so incredible Corner Adorner Stamp Set which I stamped in black and then colored in the gorgeous florals. The sentiment is created using the Friend Word Die and a few stamps from the Friend Stamp Set. Aren’t the florals just striking?!

Thank You | Honey Bee Stamps

by Stephanie Gold for Honey Bee Stamps // Golden Simplicity

Good morning loves! Today I have a fun little thank you card for you using the Color My World and Thanks Simple Sentiments stamp sets from Honey Bee Stamps. I stamped the flowers and colored them in around the outside of a Side Stitched Rectangle from Lil Inker Designs with the large “thank you” stamped in bold black in the center. I added the layer of green cardstock to accent the color pops of the flowers and leaves, and then softened the card with a white dry embossed panel. I finished it off with a kraft card base, a twine wrap, and a mini clothespin for a relaxed vibe.
