by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink throwback thursday mini blooms

This quickly became one of my favorite sets. It was originally designed by the great Maile Belles and has her innovation and charm all over it. This set is deceptively large and gives you so many options for creating fun floral arrangements with a trendy/fresh vibe.

I paired my florals today with a background created with the Bitty Big: Soft Stone and Mix & Mat: Plaid and created a little twine wrap along two of the sides for some added whimsy.

My second project shows a more dramatic approach with color.

The sentiment and accents are embossed on a dark background for maximum effect.

And my last project shows a light an airy card for the clean and simples out there. πŸ˜‰

I used the center of the Mix & Mat die to create a stencil out of thick cardstock and then used texture paste to add a bit of a snow effect.

Project numero uno is a lovely light and airy hugs card. πŸ™‚ The background is made with the latest Bitty Big series in Soft Stone (YASSSSS!). These new florals by Dawn McVey may be my favorite floral stamps EVERRRRRR. They are called Farmers Market Florals and I’m friggin obsessed.

The new Mix & Mat: Hearts is as lovely as you would imagine it to be. It’s perfect for Valentine’s, anniversaries, weddings, or even just fun feminine cards. I love a good heart and the addition of the arrows has my heart fluttering. πŸ™‚

My second project is more of those florals (because… FLORALS people!!) and those Huge Sentiment Dies.

I created a soft background using neutrals with the Farmers Market stamps and then accented them with a larger floral in Hawaiian Shores and Tropical Teal. The sentiment is a two layer die in Soft Stone and Hawaiian Shores.

Hello again! Today is the last day of what I lovingly call Papertrey’s “Inspiration Week” and we are talking about the new Cloche Quarters: Winter Fillers stamp set in addition to the Pen & Ink: Christmas set.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Cloche Quarters Winter Fillers Pen and Ink Christmas

For the Cloche Winter Fillers I immediately fell in love with these adorable ornaments!! They are soooooo cute!! I went with a blue/green color combination and stacked them high in a simple cloche case on a kraft background. Aren’t they beautiful?

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Cloche Quarters Winter Fillers Pen and Ink Christmas

Now onto the Pen & Ink: Christmas set which was majorly delayed (but Lizzie and I happened to snag a couple sample sets while we were filming the release party) so there probably won’t be much on these today. However, they are as beautiful as ever and I will forever buy anything that’s created in this font!! πŸ™‚

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Cloche Quarters Winter Fillers Pen and Ink Christmas

I went with a festive, layered look for this card. The sentiment is stamped on vellum and accented with some of the papers from the Wonderland kit. I still managed to keep things airy even with the bold red in the flowers and ribbon and I just love how it turned out!

And of course that birch paper will always have a place in my heart so I had to put it right on top. πŸ™‚

Eeeeeeeeek!!! I have been waiting for today! I finally get to show you this card that I made a week ago using Lizzie’s new Dash Away All set. Now I must preface this card with the fact that it’s officially my favorite from this release, which typically means its one of the least favorites from everyone else haha. I don’t know why, it just always works out that way! It cracks me up. So here it is:

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Dash Away All mix and mat Snowflakes

So I went veryyyyy clean and simple with this design. I began by die cutting two deer, one from white cardstock and one from True Black cardstock – I wanted a very stark difference. Next I stamped the “believe” all over the white deer in black ink.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Dash Away All mix and mat Snowflakes

Once dry I adhered them together offset and used dimensional adhesive to place him on the white card base. And of course a little red bead on the nose for some added whimsy and a mini color pop. πŸ™‚ I’m obsessed.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Dash Away All mix and mat Snowflakes

To show off the gorgeousness (totally a word!) of the intricate snowflakes in the latest Mix & Mat dies, I die cut them from the birch pattern paper from the Wonderland kit and layered it on top of a panel of Smokey Shadow cardstock.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Dash Away All mix and mat Snowflakes

Using a sentiment from the newest Travelers Journal: December stamp set, I accented the top of the card with the “let it snow” saying – perfect alongside those snowflakes. πŸ™‚
