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.

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.

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.

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. 🙂

Corner Adorner: June + Bold Borders: Wave + Sentiment Staples: Sending You

Good morning all! Today we have three more wonderful continuations of Lizzie Jones’ super fun series’… Bold Borders, Sentiment Staples, and Corner Adorner!

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Bold Borders wave corner adorner wave lizzie jones

To make my first project I combined two of the corners and made them into a new fun shape that is almost a bit ornate!

I used the Woodgrain stencil to create the texture in the background and of course added a little twine… a la me. 😉

As for Bold Borders, I really wanted to show off the sunshine aspect in this sentiment so I used three different yellow cardstock colors to create a happy sunny vibe under my bright white Bold Borders die cut. The butterfly is from Heather’s Travelers Journal stamp set, Field Notes!

Dapper Chap + Shape Up Tuxedo + Corner Adorner April + Words to Live by + Shape Shifters Square

***I wanted to thank you all for your patience today… it seems our internet is going bonkers and it’s been a challenge to get this post working! Hoping you are all having a beautiful Friday!***

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Shape Up Tuxedo Dapper Chap

What genius idea… am I right?! Lizzie is at it again with her brilliant gift card dies and today’s has taken the cake!

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Shape Up Tuxedo Dapper Chap

This quite clever set of dies gives you so many options to put together a gorgeous suit for the man in your life and you can even slip a gift card inside! I chose to put this outfit on the front of a card for my project today but I am a little obsessed with this set.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Shape Up Tuxedo Dapper Chap

Don’t be scared off if it looks complicated!! Lizzie put together a wonderful video that you can use to follow along when you put this guy together for the first time (because it’s honestly simpler than it looks and you probably won’t need to watch the video more than once). And of course the Dapper Chap stamp and die set coordinate perfectly. I’m loving the “nicely done, sir” sentiment. 🙂

For the latest Corner Adorner set we have a more artsy design for you this month. Create artisticly impressive card designs in a snap! I chose to go with a super watercolor and carefree feel with mine and used the negatives from the Shape Shifters Square die to add just a bit of unexpected fun to the bottom.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Corner Adorner April Shape Shifters Square Words to Live By Work

This card design will undoubtedly not be everyone’s cup of tea but it may be one of my favorites from this release haha. (Check out artist Lourdes Sanchez if you’re a fan of abstract watercolor art)

Botanical Bounty + Bold Borders Flare

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink botanical bounty sentiment staples congratulations bold borders flare

Today I have a card for you showing off the newest set from Jennifer Campbell, Botanical Bounty, as well as the latest in the Bold Borders series from Lizzie Jones, Flare.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink botanical bounty sentiment staples congratulations bold borders flare

I combined a couple of the strips from the bold borders to create one solid block to use as a design accent. I LOVE how it turned out… don’t you just love when your ideas translate?? Almost never happens… haha

The flower is created using one of my favorite techniques, inking up your stamp and spritzing with water before impressing. For this flower I combined New Leaf, Green Parakeet, Summer Sunrise, and Lemon Tart. The sentiment is from Lizzie’s Sentiment Staples Congratulations set. 🙂
