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.

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.

Ok, how cool are these Fringe Scallop Circle Dies?! I really wanted to accent how cool they are so I made a little wreath with contrasting colors and nestled the kraft one down a bit underneath the white. That sweet birdie, the sentiment, and the leaves are all from The Little Things Stamp and Die Sets.

My second card uses the new Happy Birthday Border Die for a sentiment. I decided to cut it up a bit and do something a little different with it. 🙂 This is actually one of my favorite dies. It is surprisingly versatile. I will show you some other ideas with this die in the next coming weeks! The flowers were made with the incredible Doodled Daisies Dies & Stamp Sets and I accented the card with another Fringe Scalloped Circle. 🙂

This little bird from the most recent release keeps begging me to use him and I do! He’s just the cutest! I combined the bird from the Hello Beautiful set with the flower from the Sketched Floral set and stuck those babies right on top of the gorgeous Leaf Cover Up die. The sentiment is also from the Sketched Floral set.

Hey there! Today’s card is using a fun technique of masking a circle and stamping around it to create a wreath. Check it out:

I used the Papertrey Ink Rosie Posie stamp set and a few different ink colors to stamp the flowers and leaves around the circle mask making sure to overlap a little to create a very distinct line. Once the circle is removed I added the sentiment on top (Wet Paint die from PTI that I layered multiple times to create a chipboard effect).

I entered this card into the FUSION Card Challenge using both the sketch and the photo as inspiration.

Hello!! Today I have a couple more cards that I made with the Papertrey Ink Embellished Elegance stamp & die set found here. Again, I made a masculine and a feminine version of each card and kept them quite simple. To see more cards I made with this set, check out these posts here, here, and here.

For the masculine one, I used gray cardstock as a backdrop and stuck to green and blue for my colors. The green ink is New Leaf from PTI, the blue is Memento Bahama Blue, and the black is from Hero Arts.

For the feminine version, I stuck with a white backdrop. The black ink is from Hero Arts, and the rest of the inks are from PTI: Berry Sorbet, Lemon Tart, and Limeaid Ice.

This set is definitely one I will continue to be digging into. There are so many possibilities with it and I have barely even scratched the surface. Haha… thanks for stopping by!
