This quickly became one of my favorite sets. It was originally designed by the great Maile Belles and has her innovation and charm all over it. This set is deceptively large and gives you so many options for creating fun floral arrangements with a trendy/fresh vibe.

I paired my florals today with a background created with the Bitty Big: Soft Stone and Mix & Mat: Plaid and created a little twine wrap along two of the sides for some added whimsy.

Hey all! Today is Throwback Thursday with Papertrey Ink and I am so excited to show you the project I made for today. 🙂

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink throwback thursday phrase play 9

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. 🙂

Hey there friends!! Did you all have fun celebrating Halloween?? My kids LOVE dressing up so they had such a blast. My sweet girl was a fairy for one party and Princess Belle for another… and my sweet boy was a puppy for one and Gecko from Disney’s PJ Masks for another! I just adore watching their excitement while we have fun with friends. 🙂 To see a photo from the evening check out my Instagram page HERE.

Now onto the Papertrey Throwback Thursday fun!!

Background Basics: Sheet Music is one of those sets that is so versatile, you could EASILY match it up with almost any other set, theme, holiday, etc. Since we’ve been in a Christmas kick lately I decided to match it up with the lovely new Sing a Song of Christmas stamps and dies.

The sentiment is stamped onto one of the Bookmark dies (previously released) and then the sheet music accents the theme below. I mixed Saffron Spice and Bright Buttercup for a fun muted color combination that wouldn’t compete too much with the rest of the card.

The Bitty Big: Pure Poppy cardstock adds that color pop at the bottom and the Treble Clef die perfectly accentuates the card’s theme.

The card is finished off with some embellishments from the Wonderland Trimmings Kit. I actually put that thin red striped ribbon through my Xyron and made it a mini washi to stick right across the card front. 🙂

Thanks so much for joining me today!! Be sure to check out with the other ladies have designed with this awesome set and have a wonderful weekend!!

Welcome to another fun version of Papertrey Ink’s Throwback Thursdays! Today we are revisiting the Fair Isle Motifs stamp set.

I really wanted to use light airy colors so I decided on a combination of Ocean Tides, Aqua Mist, and Lemon Tart. By starting with a center point and stamping equally 4 times around each “corner” you create a fun pattern with a central focal point.

Since my pattern colors are subdued, I went with a big bold sentiment in the center. The card is finished off with a thin bit of natural twine.

Today is all about the Tipped Top Die Collection and I swear it is more in style than ever!!

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Tipped Top Dies 2017

So technically Fall is on it’s way here, but I am in Arizona and it’s still FULL BLOWN Summer here (I’m currently melting). So I decided to keep up with the happy summer color themes and schemes today! 🙂

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Tipped Top Dies 2017

The largest Tipped Top die is cut from Lemon Tart Cardstock and the “happy” was cut right through it. I stamped the “birthday” to add a bit of black and finish off the sentiment. And of course I can never resist the florals. 🙂 The card is finished off with a wrap of Black and White Twine. It just all makes me happy!
