For today’s project I really wanted to include the Color Basics Add-On Kit which includes the colors Sweet Blush, Soft Stone, and Smokey Grey. I also wanted to show a way that you can use the wax seal other than as.. well.. a wax seal. πŸ˜‰

I began by stamping the marble stamp in Soft Stone ink onto Soft Stone cardstock for a subtle background texture. Then I added a bit of a Mix & Mat: Herringbone die cut piece and started my layering.

By using my Nuvo Glue Pen as more of a drawing tool, I made lines on my hexagon and then filled them in with the Nuvo Gold Gilding Flakes. The thick font of the sentiment is perfectly balanced by a bit of twine wrapped on the left.

Hey everyone! There is a brand new set of kits being launched in the Papertrey Ink store called, Sincerely Yours and they are designed by the ever so talented, Kimberly Crawford!

The very first kit in the line is Modern & Marbled and it’s available now!! I have a project for you today showcasing this beauty and I will have one more for you tomorrow as well! πŸ˜‰

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Kimberly Crawford Sincerely Yours Modern & Marbled Kit

For today’s project I went with bold colors to really accent the beautiful lines in the marble detailing. Modern designs typically have striking accents so the Raspberry Fizz paired with True Black was a perfect choice.

By off setting the sentiment die cuts I allowed for them to be read a bit easier against the busy background of the marble. The gold marble was created by drawing with my Nuvo Glue Pen in a matching marble pattern and then filling it in with the Nuvo Gold Gilding Flakes… both of which come in the main Modern & Marbled kit.

There are a few very subtle lines stamped behind the black hexagon using Soft Stone ink (more apparent in person than in photos) which coordinated with the stripes on the stamped envelope.

Eeek! I am so thrilled to be here today with my very first new release Papertrey Ink Feature!! Today I am showcasing 2 brand new stamp sets, Courage and Kindness, and Ways to Say: Thank You, both designed by Heather Nichols.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink courage and kindness ways to say thank you

This first card really shows off the big beautiful script font in some of the sentiments from the Courage and Kindness set. I used the gorgeous florals to accent the message by layering them behind the frame and chose a fun blue/green color combination.

BE STRONG & HAVE COURAGE

PAPER: Stampers Select White, Simply Chartreuse
INK: Enchanted Evening, Tropical Teal, Ripe Avocado, Black
STAMPS: Courage and Kindness
DIES: Courage and Kindness
OTHER: Gold clip, Natural Twine, Glossy Accents

//

I really wanted to show off the versatility of the florals in this set so I decided to use a greyscale bouquet in the forefront of my next card, accenting with vibrant pops of color in the background. To make the card even more unique, I used a dark Smokey Shadow cardstock base to show off the color even more.

PAPER: Stampers Select White, Smokey Shadow, Limeade Ice, Raspberry Fizz
INK: Black, Smokey Shadow, Limeade Ice, Berry Sorbet
STAMPS: Courage and Kindness

And finally, I created a window with one of the dies and chose a repeated stamping technique to even more stress how much you can do with just two simple sets. I put together a folded tag card used as a hostess gift – which the Ways to Say: Thank You set is especially perfect for.

Yayyyy!! It’s Lil Inker release time again!!!! And this one is one of my faves. You should have arrived here from the beautiful Lisa Henke’s blog. Here is my first project!

by Stephanie Gold for Lil Inker Designs Hello Beautiful Warm Welcome Sassy Script Golden Simplicity

For this card I used the Hello Beautiful Stamps to create a lovely floral outline which I messy watercolored. I layered the sentiment over top (also from the Hello Beautiful set) and tucked in a Fanfare Scalloped Border Die (previously released). Finished it off with some twine and that’s it!

by Stephanie Gold for Lil Inker Designs Hello Beautiful Warm Welcome Sassy Script Golden Simplicity

For my next card I used the same floral outline stamps but repeated them to cover the entire card. I trimmed off the bottom using a Fringe Scalloped Border Builder Die and then created the sentiment using the new Sassy Script Alpha Stamps.

by Stephanie Gold for Lil Inker Designs Hello Beautiful Warm Welcome Sassy Script Golden Simplicity

These script stamps are SO FUN. I love them. And they turn out so dang cute don’t they?!
