Starting out with Winter Fox by Heather Nichols and Text and Texture: Wood Slices by Betsy Veldman! This little fox is so. dang. cute. I was so excited to work with him! I blended a couple different colors together to get the red I really wanted for his fur and I love how he turned out.

I chose to create the wood slices in Soft Stone on Soft Stone for a really subtle texture in the back. It’s a little more prominent in person but still very soft. 🙂 And those greys… Weathervane ya’ll!

Next up is an interesting combination of a brand new sympathy stamp set called Sending You Comfort by Kimberly Crawford… and a new window die for the previously released Hinged Gift Card Box called Christmas Window, by Lizzie Jones.

I decided to create a card with these combos and I’m showcasing the “So Very Merry” sentiment die from Lizzie’s set. The other die says “From Santa” and is SO CUTE!!! You will love both of these. They will look adorable on tags too!!! Not just cards and gift boxes! So definitely don’t write this one off if you don’t have the coordinating box die yet.

Kicking things off is the card I made using July’s Glorious Globes set. One of the things I have really loved about Lizzie’s Globes series is all the nature she incorporates into many of the globes. From flowers to leaves, they always make me happy to look at and play with.

This month’s may be one of my favorite sets so far and I had a ton of fun creating this card that didn’t even use them in the intended globe format.

For my next project I really took the Ombre idea to heart. I used three different ink colors and blended them together on my stamp before pressing to the paper. The repeat stamping made for a fun background/sentiment and I used the Pierced Feature Frames dies in Melon Berry to bring in more color from the sentiments.

That’s it for me today! I’ll see you back here tomorrow 😉

I created a purely clean and simple card for this set and I tried to make the kitty peeking out look just like mine. I have a kitten named Gypsy and she’s a torti so I mixed blacks, browns, and tans to create the color.

I used the Shape Shifters square die to cut 4 times right next to each other and then turned it on it’s side to make a diamond. I layered it over top of some of the new Bitty Big Berry Sorbet and used some black paint splatters to compliment the sentiment.

This card showcases the very unique and happy set Yellow Sunshine by Rebecca Luminarias. I decided to use this adorable sentiment and accent it with a rainbow and a few raindrops on the ends.

I love the light and airy feel that came out from this!

This next set by Heather Nichols really hit me in all the right places! I am not a big pennant person in general but you can use these sentiments for anythinggggggg. They are so dang cute and I’m OBSESSED with the compass and “go your own way” types of sentiments. Amazing.

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink banners and pennants heather nichols

I definitely tend to do my own thing whether that’s good or not lol so I loved the message this card gave out.

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.

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink corner adorner july by lizzie jones

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. 🙂
