Hey hey hey!! Welcome back!! Today I am focusing on the Flower Power stamp and die set along with the new Window Works die collection.

Starting things off with all the Flower Power goodness!! I stamped my flowers on kraft cardstock and then colored over top of them with colored pencils. I masked off the edge of one side of the flowers so I could stamp my sentiment along a straight line.

And for something completely random that I’ve never done before… I outlined my stamped images in black and then used white to accent them a bit. Can’t tell you why, just thought I’d try it out! haha

And finally these Window Works dies… THEY ARE THE COOLEST!!! Now I love a good frame/window/design detail die so these are like gold to me. I used the circular one for this card and the Keep It Simple: Congratulations sentiment in the background for a bold pop of dark.

The paper is the new Bitty Big: Aqua Mist (all together now… YAYYYYYYYYY BITTY BIG AQUA MIST!!!!) and the floral group is from a past Make It Market Kit: Don’t Forget to Write. I accented the card with seam binding and a bit of Smokey Shadow Twill Tape.

Allllll right ya’ll!!! Did you catch last night’s Release Party Live?? Did you place your order? Are you ready for even MORE inspiration on how to use your new goodies?! Well let’s get to it then!

Do you ever have a sentiment set where you think “I just want to use them all!” Well that’s sort of what happened here. ๐Ÿ™‚ I REALLY wanted to stamp out “tis the season” “peace on earth” and “christmas wishes” so I thought by adding the larger “merry christmas” at the bottom it would be a fun sentiment all together!!

I used pattern papers from the Wonderland Kit as well as some of the Big Bitty Pure Poppy cardstock for the background. Since that added a ton of interest in itself, I chose to keep the embellishments to a minimum.

Hi there! It’s STILL Papertrey release time (I have such a great time with these extended release periods!!) and today I have THREE projects for you using Initial Sentiments: Birthday, Ways to Say: Birthday, and Kay’s Critters: Cuddly Cat.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Initial Sentiments Birthday

For my first card I decided to attempt a fun cutout around the giant “HB” sentiment for a unique design. I lined the interior with Limeade Ice cardstock for a color pop and used the circular images to add to the sentiment.

My second card is one of my favorites from this release. I used the “birthday” die from the “happy birthday” die set to create a sentiment window but left it open to show the Hibiscus Burst cardstock show from underneath. The floral Gran’s Garden accents are the perfect focal point to counter the sentiment on top.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink Kays Critters Cuddly Cats

For Kay’s Critters dies I found myself increasingly obsessed with my kitty, Gypsy. So much so that I decided to create her a little toy to go along with the gift tag I made. Unfortunately the polka dots that are stamped on the tag in Soft Stone are too subtle for most of my images, but they add the perfect amount of faux texture to my simple kitty tag. I have quite a few friends who have kitties and I love buying them little treats and toys so I will definitely be making more of these. ๐Ÿ™‚

I made the toy so it separates from the tag easily and can be played with right away! ๐Ÿ™‚ I tested this one out with Gypsy and she’s a big fan. She also loves it when you dangle it from a stick hehe
