I tied in the Tropical Teal on the seahorses with a strip from the newest Bitty Big pattern papers, and brought out the black in the sentiment by adding black paint splatters.

Cover Up Hexagons + Forest Floor Summer + Seasonal Borders Summer + Noted Pinked Edge 2 // Papertrey Ink

Yay for flowers and berries!!!!!! Today’s projects may be some of my favorites from this month’s release and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

So I’m going to start with my absolute favorite. These berries were screaming country home watercolored goodness. I used the Cover Up stamp to create a bit of a chicken wire look and multiple colors of ink to get multi-shade dimension on the berries and vines.

A little Natural Jute Twine is the perfect finisher for this homey card.

This next card showcases our latest release in Bitty Big colors… Limeade Ice! Limeade Ice has always been one of my favorite colors and seeing it in all these patterns has put a huge smile on my face. The seasonal borders for this release are super tropical and look beautiful alongside the Noted Pinked Edge dies.

Transformation Tuesday // Papertrey Ink

Hello friends and welcome to a fun Transformation Tuesday with Papertrey Ink! If you aren’t quite familiar with this new feature, we are basically taking a card we’ve made in the past that we haven’t been 100% happy with, and showing you how we are re-creating it to be something we love!

Today I am working with this card from last year’s Papertrey releases:

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Beautiful Berries

Now although I don’t hate this card, it just felt like it was missing my style a bit. I have this weird thing where I like what I make to really feel like *me* and this card just felt a little bit off.

To get started, I went through what I really liked about this card… 1) color scheme, 2) twine, 3) the cutout concept. So with these things in mind and being used as my inspiration, I created a new card.

A couple of the things I really wanted to change about this card were the kraft cardstock, and the notched corners. For some reason, I just wasn’t vibing with them haha. I decided to go with a more clean cut card that felt a little bit more Clean and Simple.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Transformation Tuesday Beautiful Berries Summer Scalloped Tag Dies

I kept my color scheme basically the same but switched out the Raspberry Fizz for Berry Sorbet. And instead of using the coordinating dies for the cutout concept, I went with one of the Scalloped Tag Dies instead to create a focal point more around my sentiment.

And finally, to keep those clean lined edges, I used a Berry Sorbet card base as opposed to having an extra layer on the top of my card.
