Introducing The Hooray Stamp Set & Paper Collection, Text Block: Horizontal Birthday Die, Cover Plate: Balloon Bash, and Balloon Strings Die

Welcome to the first day of the Papertrey Ink June new release countdown (these new products will be available starting June 15th). Oh, boy! You all are in for a treat this month! I have so much to share with all of you over the coming days. I'm introducing most of it this morning, but it wouldn't be any fun to give away everything on Day 1, so I'm going to keep a surprise up my sleeve for later. Today though I'm introducing you to the Hooray Stamp Set & Paper Collection, Text Block: Horizontal Birthday Die, Cover Plate: Balloon Bash, and Balloon Strings Die. What?! I know! Let's get to some projects so you can see all of these new goodies in action.

I'm starting today with a bright and cheerful birthday card that features the new Text Block: Horizontal Birthday Die, Hooray Stamp Set, and Balloon Strings Die.

Wish Big Card

I began by stamping the streamers from Hooray onto a Fresh Snow linen card base using Pure Poppy, Hawaiian Shores, Simply Chartreuse, Harvest Gold, and Orange Zest inks. Then, I xyroned a piece of Hawaiian Shores cardstock and die cut that with the new Text Block die. I adhered that shape to a piece of Clear Cardstock and mounted it to the card front with foam tape.

Wish Big Close Up

Next, I die cut and stamped one of the balloons from Balloon Bash using Orange Zest ink. I die cut one of the new Balloon Strings shapes from Linen Vellum and adhered it to the back of the balloon. Then, I used foam tape to mount the balloon to the card front, leaving the string largely unattached. I added a vellum bow to the balloon (also from the Balloon Strings Die) along with a self adhesive pearl. A simple sprinkling of clear sequins was the perfect finishing touch.

Now, let's get a peek at that new Hooray Paper Collection. Better yet, let's pair it with the Cover Plate: Balloon Bash and the Hooray Stamp Set!

Time To Celebrate

I started this card by adhering one of the sheets of patterned paper to a white card base. There are three color variations in this paper collection, so you'll have an option for just about anyone! Next, I die cut the Cover Plate: Balloon Bash from vellum and heat embossed it with one of the sentiments from Hooray. I wanted to add a touch of sparkle, so I dragged the edges of my vellum panel through a little glue and then sprinkled on iridescent glitter. The result is absolutely fabulous!

Time To Celebrate Close Up

Next, I die cut a few of the Balloon Bash balloons and rock 'n roll stamped them with colors that coordinate with the patterned paper (Harvest Gold/Lemon Tart, Raspberry Fizz/Hibiscus Burst, Orange Zest/Summer Sunrise). This Cover Plate has star details that coordinate with the stars from Balloon Bash, so I used the star balloons here, but any of the designs would pair beautifully. I adhered the balloons to the vellum using flat and foam adhesives and then used the covered areas to hide the adhesive attaching it to the card front. I like how the vellum layer flutters a bit around the edges. I finished the card with a few glitter embellishments on the balloons to tie the whole thing together. It's certainly celebratory, no?

I have one last card for you today. This one uses one of the other papers along with Hooray Stamp Set and the Balloon Strings Die.

New Age Card

I began by stamping an Aqua Mist card front with Polka Dot Basics in Fresh Snow ink. Then, I die cut the patterned paper using the Tipped Tops die. I heat embossed my sentiment onto those two pieces and adhered the streamer panel to the card front with foam tape. Next, I stamped a few colored cardstocks with patterns from Bitty Background Blocks II and xyroned them, patterned side down. I die cut those pieces of cardstock using the Birthday Style die and then exposed the adhesive to glitter the entire face of each balloon. That toned down the patterns and made them much more subtle (if something completely covered in glitter can be considered subtle).

New Age Close Up

I arranged the balloons on the card front, tucking one of them under the patterned paper panel. I adhered the vellum balloon strings just to the underside of the balloons, so they're light and loose on the card front. It's a very girly card with a fun message. Every time I hear someone my age or younger complain about their age, it makes me roll my eyes. Let's all embrace our ages!

That's all for me today, friends! Check back in tomorrow to see more of this month's new products. In the meantime, Nichole, Betsy, Dawn, Heather, Maile, Melissa, Erin and Lexi all have projects to share with you today. See you soon!
