Introducing The Bold Basics Stamp Set & Stencil Collection (And More Summer Perks!)

Good morning, friends and welcome to one last introduction from the Papertrey Ink June line-up! The Bold Basics collection from Kimberly Crawford is a versatile, modern basic that covers a wide range of occasions. You can use the stencils to create color blocked stationery that is super trendy and fresh or use them as a mask to create sections of background stamping. Let's take a closer look, shall we?

I used three of the Color Block stencils to get this overlapped triangular pattern on my focal panel. I wanted to create something a little more masculine and graphic and the stencils made it easy!


I did my stenciling before my die cutting to make sure I was able to get in all the nooks and crannies created by the stitching detail on the die. I simply did a rough trim, did my sponging, and then die cut using a Noted: Simply Stitched die.


I kept the top and bottom reminiscent of one another, but still asymmetrical to keep the design from feeling too matchy. I stamped the sentiment from Bold Basics in True Black ink before adhering the panel to a True Black card front.


I knew I wanted to use some sort of sprinkled embellishment to add a touch of interest. I settled on rhinestones that I colored to match with a black marker. Lacquer dots (like Nuvo drops) would maybe have been a little more gender neutral, but I like the way these turned out. The slight sparkle is a nice touch.

You can pick up the Bold Basics stamp set and Color Block Stencil Collection bundle today for 10% off! It's a great incentive for a fantastic collection!

Thank you so much for joining me today! Make sure to pop in on Betsy, DawnHeather, Laurie, Melissa B, Melissa P, and Michelle to see what they have to share with you today. Enjoy your weekend and I'll see you again soon!
