I created a purely clean and simple card for this set and I tried to make the kitty peeking out look just like mine. I have a kitten named Gypsy and she’s a torti so I mixed blacks, browns, and tans to create the color.

I used the Shape Shifters square die to cut 4 times right next to each other and then turned it on it’s side to make a diamond. I layered it over top of some of the new Bitty Big Berry Sorbet and used some black paint splatters to compliment the sentiment.

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. 🙂

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!

Botanical Bounty 2

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink botanical bounty 2

Welcome welcome! Today for Papertrey Ink’s release we are talking all about the second edition of Jennifer Campbell’s gorgeous floral collection, Botanical Bounty 2.

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink botanical bounty 2

Jennifer has done it again and made even more beautiful flowers. For this rainbow card I used some additional ink on a paintbrush and made some outlines around the edges for a more distinct detail.

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink botanical bounty 2

And who doesn’t love a good rainbow???

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink botanical bounty 2

A good tip for this technique is to use an ink color two shades darker than your flower for the outline color.

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink botanical bounty 2

You all know I am all about the light and airy cards. For this one I used my favorite technique of spraying the ink on the stamp before pressing it to the paper. It gives such a soft look and blends ink colors seamlessly.

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink botanical bounty 2

For a fun added detail, I punched small holes around the bottom of my floral bunch and tied twine through them. I thought it turned out so cute!

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink botanical bounty 2

That pattern strip in the background is the newest Bitty Big, Tropical Teal.

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink botanical bounty 2

For my final project I really want to show off all the stamps together. I used a wholeeeeee bunch of different ones from the set in coordinating colors to create this beautiful background.

by stephanie gold for papertrey ink botanical bounty 2

The tag is made from Harvest Gold Bitty Big and the background color is in Berry Sorbet. It adds such a nice pop of color for a truly springy card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have enjoyed everything I created today! Much love all.
