Alright friends, today is the final day of extra inspiration from our latest release at Papertrey. I have one last project to show you which used the Butterfly Hope stamp and die sets and I really hope you enjoy it. 🙂

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Butterfly Hope Fun Frames

This card design was inspired by some recent events going on. I was feeling a bit discouraged and disappointed in myself and I felt like those little faded grey butterflies. I decided to change my outlook on the situation I was in and I was determined to create a happier, more hopeful perspective… I chose to feel like that joyful, colorful butterfly. 🙂 Although difficult at the time, making this card made me feel so much better!

Hey hey hey!! Inspiration overload yet?? Today I am revisiting the Nesting stamp set and coordinating Nesting Cover Plate die as well as the lovely and beautiful Botanical Letters stamp set. All new products are available for purchase in the Papertrey Ink store now.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Botanical Letters Mix and Mat Flourishes

I have 3 projects for you today, starting with one of my favorites. I used multiple colors for the letters and then kept the florals in the centers all in black. The “with” was actually a sentiment from the Ways To Say: Thank You stamp set that I masked off and of course the Smokey Shadow cardstock layer was created with two of the dies from the Mix and Mat: Flourishes die set.

My next card uses the Nesting Cover Plate die. I kept a lot of the colors in this card white to sort of make it look like birds in a nest in snow. 🙂

My last card is an almost one layer card with the exception of the two little birdies. I decided to stamp them with leaves instead of the birdie stamps for a completely unique look.

Day 3 of More March Release Projects and I have a couple of cute treat boxes to share with you today! I am showcasing the So Sweet stamp/die set and the Carrot Treat Boxes one more time. 🙂

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Carrot Treat Box So Sweet

I created two very different boxes by stamping with white onto kraft cardstock for one of them and stamping with Plum Pudding ink onto Plum Pudding cardstock for the other. I created a vellum window in one of the boxes and left the other one whole. I also made two very different tags to go with them and this was all with just the So Sweet stamp set and the Carrot Treat box dies!!! Can you imagine how many VERY different projects you could create with these??? I’m in awe over these sets.

Hello again and welcome back for another day filled with inspiration for you, this time focusing on the Shadowed Sentiments set! Remember that all of these new products are officially for sale NOW so head on over to the shop as soon as you’re done. 🙂

I have one card for you using this set and I have a super feminine style so I decided to girly it up a bit by adding some florals and spring colors.

By Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Shadowed Sentiments Make it Market Bloom and Grow

I used Limeade Ice ink to stamp the 2 shadow sentiments, leaving the interior of the “hello” white. There are actually a surprising amount of combinations in which you can use this set, which is a fun and pleasant surprise!!

By Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Shadowed Sentiments Make it Market Bloom and Grow

The white panel in the center was created using the larger die from the Fun Frames set and I created the stitched border on Limeade Ice cardstock using the previously released Stitched Cover Plate.
