Release day...

Have you been following the Papertrey Ink countdown this month? Today is the day all of the new products will be up for sale at 10pm EST! Here are a few more new stamps and dies we were lucky enough to work with this month! First up, I used a new stamp set called L' Shanah Tovah (sentiment and small leaves) paired with Vintage Linens stamps.
On this card, I wanted to try a more neutral color scheme and went for grays, blacks and golds. The wreath is cut with the Rustic Wreath die.

Next up I've used the new Petite Places: Main Street stamps and the new Graceful Greetings dies.
To create a little home for the cute little shops that were stamped, I cut some of the Limitless Layers 2.5" Square dies and layered them with a Vintage Linen paper and paper from the Sweet Blush Pattern Pack.

Vintage linens...

Today is our third group blog post for Papertrey Ink's July countdown! We are previewing a couple of new stamp sets and dies: Vintage Linens and Embroidered Borders, both of which I loved working with! The new products will be available at Papertrey Ink on 7/15 at 10pm EST.
First, I selected a photo that inspired me. The little flowers caught my eye, especially the blue ones, which you'll see in the second card.

The first card was more simple. I used one of the Vintage Linen papers in the background, then stamped and die cut the flowers to add over the top.
The sentiment is from a new set called Perfect Pairing.


Thinking of You card:
STAMPS: Vintage Linens, Perfect Pairing
INK: New Leaf, Berry Sorbet, Pure Poppy
PAPER: Vintage Linens
DIES: Vintage Linens
OTHER: sequins by Pretty Pink Posh.

The second card uses a few more layers. I stamped the background in black with the outline stamps of the flowers.

"Just Because" is from a new stamp set called Keep It Simple: Just Because. 
The frame is die cut and stamped with Embroidered Borders. Really loved working with these products and have quite a few more ideas to use them with!

Calling all bibliophiles...

We are back with group post #2 at Papertrey Ink for the month of July to show you some new book-related products that will be available July 15th at 10pm EST at www.papertreyink.com.

I was inspired by this bookshelf quilt I found on Pinterest and thought the books would be cute on a teacher card! So I added the Apple Prints stamps and dies in with the new book themed stamps and dies. On one of the cards, I used the books horizontally and the other vertically.
On this card, I used the different sentiments on several books to create one big message. Such a cute set of stamps! I really like this idea. Fun way to add lots of color on the differing books.


A Favorite Book card:
(All products by Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.)
STAMPS: Bibliophile, Background Basics: Twinkle, Apple Prints
INK: Tropical Teal, Pure Poppy, Simply Chartreuse, True Black, Summer Sunrise

DIES: Bibliophile
OTHER: twine - The Twinery, sequin - Pretty Pink Posh.

Couple of pics of the card set. 
I read the directions wrong and was supposed to make a card with the Book Cover Card dies... ooops! Sorry!!

Think I like the vertical books the best. They look more like books. What do you think?
