Hey all! Today is Throwback Thursday with Papertrey Ink and I am so excited to show you the project I made for today. 🙂
I created a card with coordinating gift box using mainly JUST the Phrase Play #9 stamp and die set. By running the die through multiple times in different colors, you create different colored snowflakes and sentiment strips with ease. I went with traditional Christmas colors but you could use any colors you’d like!!
By using the Bitty Big: Soft Stone in the large plaid, I added extra texture and interest in the gift box. And to keep things coordinated, I stamped on the card using the Soft Stone Ink as well.
I tried to make it easier to see in this picture but the “greetings” sentiment strip has a background stamped purely in Soft Stone “treats” to tie in the Soft Stone color. I also ran the card base through with the Woodgrain Metal Stencil for added texture on my card.
The “WINTER” sentiment is backed with vellum and popped up with multiple layers of foam tape. The vellum adds just enough fade so you can’t see the adhesive underneath (this helps so you don’t have to get super picky in adhesive placement). 🙂
That’s it for me today!! Do you like putting together coordinating cards and gift boxes?? I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. 🙂
Papertrey Ink Countdown Day 1!! We have a huge amount of inspiration and new products to show you today and I’m simply in love!! 🙂 If you haven’t yet, be sure to check out our brand new Papertrey Team Blog HERE and keep an eye out in upcoming months for some super fun changes, improvements, and more. 😉
Project numero uno is a lovely light and airy hugs card. 🙂 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. 🙂
The sentiments are created with two new sets, Huge Sentiments and Everyday Affection. You want these. You need these. You will USE these.
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.
Goodness!! Are you preparing your lists?? There’s so much more to come hehe and I’m so excited about all of it!!
