Glorious Globes: January // Papertrey Ink Featured Post

Today is all about the Glorious Globes and I have three fun cards to show you today! Let’s dive in with the first card which started out as a masculine card and ended up being uber feminine!

Once I cut out the Scallop Stacker dies in Weathervane and Smokey Shadow I immediately switched my focus from creating a men’s card to more of a pink Valentine’s card. I LOVE how it turned out. The flowers in this card are from the SAF Community Garden set and I thought they accented the adorable love globe perfectly.

A little Raspberry Fizz Bitty Big and twine finish off this cute little number and may have sent it into my January 2019 release Hall of Fame… we all pick favorite cards we make from time to time… right?!

My next card is a fun green and textured project.

I used a Spring Moss Bitty Big behind a white Shape Shifters die as the backdrop for this card, giving it immediate texture.

The globe takes front and center this time atop books from the original Globes set. I adore the map image on this globe. So traditional and precise.

Twine is the perfect finish for this card, giving it a down to earth taste.

And finally I can’t go a release without an all white card! (You know me.) For this one I overlayed the new Bold Borders in white on white and accented it with black paint drops.

I kept the love globe simple and used the “you” from the Bold Borders to finish off the sentiment so it reads “love you.”

Thank you so very much for perusing my blog today. I think you will all be super excited to see what’s being released tomorrow 😉 Much love fam!

Shape Shifters + Corner Adorner + Pierced Ovals + Let’s Fiesta // Papertrey Ink January 2019 Release

Hello all! Welcome to the very first Papertrey Ink release of 2019! We have some truly adorable products to share with you this week and I can’t wait to show you all the projects! So without further ado…

Lizzie Jones is back with her January Corner Adorner alongside Betsy Veldman’s latest in the Shape Shifter series. Today I’ve layered 5 separate Shape Shifter die cuts in multiple colors and accented the corners with the dots from Lizzie’s set.

The Corner Adorner has a multistep dot stamp that overlay each other so you can have a beautiful multicolored confetti-like effect, or simply use the stamps on their own like I did here.

My second project is showcasing Betsy Veldman’s Let’s Fiesta stamp and die set and man is this set ever cute!! Betsy added so many fun elements to this set and it’s packed!! This is a double stamp set (2, 4×6 sheets) and provides plenty of images as well as sentiments.

I decided to keep things simple for today’s card and accent one of my favorite images from this set… that rug!!! I fell in love with that cutie the second I saw it and couldn’t wait to use it as the focal point on a card. The giant sentiment is the perfect compliment for the rug and the subtle impression of Lizzie Jones’ new Pierced Ovals underneath gives a bit of added texture.

That’s all for me today! I will see you back here every day this week for more release fun and projects! Happy Thursday all!

Warm & Fuzzy + Sentiment Staples: Season’s Greetings + Corner Adorner: October + Shape Shifters: Square 3

Welcome to day 2 of Papertrey Ink’s October release!! Today’s products are some of my favorite series that are released each month and I hope I show you why!

Starting off with Corner Adorner: October which has quickly become one of my all time favorite series. This month has a beautiful bow with bells and the sweet and simple “Deck the halls” sentiment.

I created a block in the background of my card using the Sentiment Staples set. The card is finished off with a few black paint splatters.

Warm and Fuzzy is the sweet and cozy stamp set that’s out this month and it comes with many options for different socks and mittens you can put together. I paired mine with the embossing die from Betsy’s Shape Shifters Square 3 this month which I used to create an argyle pattern.

Thanks so much for stopping by! See you tomorrow!
