Hello there, friends! Welcome back to Day 3 of the Papertrey Ink January new release countdown. I'm very excited about today. You see, today is the day that Nichole is formally introducing Words of Comfort (available January 15th) on her blog. Melissa Phillips is helping with the debut today, too, so make sure to visit her for even more inspiration. Speaking of, let's get on to today's projects, shall we?
Let's start out with a sympathy card today.
I began this card by die cutting an Ocean Tides mat with a circular cut out. I used the mat as a guide to stamp the large clock face from Hands of Time onto a Vintage Cream card base using Spring Moss ink. I continued by stamping the numerals in Ocean Tides ink and heat embossing the clock hands using gold detail powder. I also gold embossed the smaller clock face onto the Ocean Tides mat and filled in the numerals with Fresh Snow ink. I softened the mat edges with very, very subtle Fresh Snow sponging and then sprinkled it with glimmer mist for a slightly dreamy effect.
Next, I mounted my Ocean Tides mat to my card base using foam adhesive and set about creating the focal point for my sentiment. I die cut a banner using the First Place dies and stamped it with my sentiment using True Black ink. I trimmed it to match the edge of the circular cut out in my mat and played with it a little until it was slightly wavy. I attached it to my card front with flat and foam adhesives to help it retain the waviness.
My second card for today is a thinking of you card.
I began by stamping a few of the botanical images from Larger Than Life onto a piece of Rustic White cardstock using Spring Moss and Ripe Avocado inks (some are stamped off for more dimension). I added the small flowers with Sweet Blush ink and the sentiment with Dark Chocolate ink. I adhered that panel to a Classic Kraft base that I had textured with the Rustic Burlap impression plate.
Next, I die cut a Sweet Blush Victorian Lace shape, adhered it over top of the floral layer, and embellished it with a handful of pearls. Finally, I wrapped a silk ribbon around the card base and tied it into a bow around a Spring Moss button.
My final card today is another sympathy type card.
I began this one by stamping a scrap of Classic Kraft cardstock with Background Basics: Woodgrain using watermark ink. I die cut that piece with the Fabulous Frames die and stamped it with my sentiment in Dark Chocolate ink. Then, I wrapped the frame with a bit of white crochet thread and tied on a Spring Rain button.
Next, I stamped the scene for the inside of my frame with images from Chair-ished and Sunflower Bouquet in Classic Kraft, Dark Chocolate, and Spring Rain inks. I adhered that to a Spring Rain card base that had been textured with the Linen & Canvas impression plate. Finally, I mounted my fame atop the little scene with foam adhesive.
Well, that's all for me today. Thank you for joining me! I'll be back tomorrow with a couple of additional Words Of Comfort projects. You can find more inspiration today with Nichole and Melissa, Cristina, Dawn, Erin, Heather, and Tiffany. Check in with them and I'll see you shortly. Have a great day!
