Introducing Hashtag Everything & Shape Shifters: Circle 2

Good morning, friends, and welcome to today's Papertrey Ink May countdown post! I'm back today sharing a project I created with Betsy's new Shape Shifter: Circle 2 die as well as Lexi's Hashtag Everything stamp set. Let's get to it!

I wanted to create a card for a tween that felt techy, but not overly so. I wanted just a hint of tech, this is a handmade card after all. I was inspired by the color scheme of the Instagram logo and was off and running.


I started by using the center detail die from this month's Shape Shifters as a stencil. I simply cut it from copy paper and pounced my color through the negatives using blending sponges. I used Harvest Gold, Orange Zest, Hibiscus Burst, and Amethyst Allure inks to get my gradient.


Then, I used the border die to add a die cut detail around the stenciled circle. I decided my front panel would really pop against a colorful card base, so I attached it to a Hibiscus Burst base, tying in the color wheel from the front.


Next, I simply heat embossed the sentiments from Hashtag Everything onto vellum using white detail powder. I die cut the greetings, cutting a couple of them a second time to make them a little bit shorter. Then, I used slivers of foam tape underneath the embossing to adhere the text bubbles into place. Super clean and simple with a bright and colorful palette. Just right for the teens and tweens in your life.

I hope you've enjoyed today's post! Make sure to pop by tomorrow to see even more inspiration for this month's release. In the meantime, make sure to pop in on Betsy, Dawn, Heather, Laurie, Melissa B, Melissa P, Michelle, and Stephanie for more sneak peeks or click HERE to see everything we're introducing today. Have a great day and I'll see you again tomorrow!
