It’s time for another fantastic Papertrey Ink release and today I just couldn’t help myself… I went all sorts of patriotic and I had a blast doing it. It’s not often that I get to work with stamp sets like “Land That I Love” by Heather Nichols and it was truly a special treat.

The sentiments and pretty graphics in this set just brought out so much pride in my country and I basically exploded in red, white, and blue haha. I know multiple brave men who serve our country in the military and I am thankful for every man and woman who stand for us.

Ok back to the crafting haha. I replaced all of the little pop outs in my blue die cut with red ones for this card. But I saved that red piece I cut and used it for my next card. These “Mix & Mat: Pretty Brackets” dies are really beautiful.

For my card I used that red piece and turned it into a flag. I layered white stripe die cuts underneath to add even more reminiscent features from our USA flag.

This card might be my favorite. I stamped Soft Stone ink on top of Soft Stone cardstock for a subtle graphic look. The Pretty Brackets card base was created by trimming a typical A2 sized card so it fit perfectly behind the die cut without anything peeking out.

The red and blue bakers twine give the finished touch with that wonderful sentiment.

Hey there! Our family is getting back from a really fun Easter weekend with great friends AND a big ole illness for my youngest. It’s been a crazy week but I am so glad to be here and give you a little more inspiration for this month’s Papertrey release.

For this first card I die cut the Mix & Mat: Scallops lace die twice from watercolor paper and then watercolored it with a few coordinating inks. I mounted the lace piece into a Soft Stone cardstock card base and stamped the “hugs” sentiment from the Lowercase Botanical Letters stamps. The flowers are stamped from the GORGEOUS Gran’s Garden stamp and die sets.

For my second card I went with a dramatically simple style.

I really wanted to show off the quote on this Melon Berry Cardstock so I stamped it once in black ink right onto the card base and then again on white cardstock. I cut out the top portion and mounted it directly on top of my card base using extra dimensional adhesive to really pop it up.

Hi again friends! I have 2 cards for you today showcasing the new Lovely Lace Mini Kit by Betsy Veldman. πŸ™‚

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Lovely Lace Mini Kit Betsy Veldman

To create this card I trimmed a strip of the pink pattern paper and adhered it to the top of my card base. I placed a strip of grey chevron washi on top and stamped my sentiment directly onto the paper and washi. I overlapped my die cut to create a nice big lacey focal point.

For my second card I used the light blue pattern paper and I die cut it with the new Mix & Mat: Scallops scalloped die.

Using my Tiny Attacher, I adhered two corner lace pieces to the top of my scalloped die cut and then stamped right in the center of my card. I finished it off with some natural twine.
