Release In Review

Good morning, friends! Welcome back for this month's Papertrey Ink countdown wrap-up. I have a few more projects to share with you featuring the June new releases, so let's get to it!

First up, I have a card showcasing Betsy's What The Doodle: Sun set.

Sending Sunshine Card

I began by sponging Harvest Gold ink through a vellum template onto a white card base. I stamped the detailed sun image using Summer Sunrise and Orange Zest inks in the resulting space. Then I used the die cut vellum shape to mask off the sun while I sponged on a bit of Aqua Mist. I just held it in place while I sponged. Next, I xyroned a piece of white cardstock and die cut that and some regular cardstock with the cloud dies in the set. I stamped the outline shapes and sandwiched them with the solid shapes, sticky side up. I sprinkled white Fun Flock over the sticky areas to give them a fuzzy appearance.

Sending Sunshine Close Up

Then, I heat embossed the sentiment onto an Aqua Mist panel I had cut with the Tipped Tops die. I trimmed the card base and the Aqua Mist panel down about 3/8" to allow for some cloud overhang and assembled my card using coaster, foam tape, and flat adhesives. As a final touch, I used a Clear Spica pen to add just a touch of glitter to the sun.

Next up, I have a set of tags that I made with the Paper Clippings: Birthday and Keep It Simple: To & From sets.

Birthday Cake Tags

I began by stamping the cakes onto pieces of white cardstock. I sponged the inks to give them dimension. The frosting is Pale Peony and Berry Sorbet. The cake layers are Harvest Gold and Summer Sunrise. The candles are Aqua Mist and Hawaiian Shores. And the flames are Harvest Gold and Summer Sunrise again.

Single Birthday Cake Tag

After the cakes were finished, I die cut the tag shapes. Then, I masked off the bottom cake layer and added a ground with the oval from Bowl Of Sunshine using Hawaiian Shores ink. I also stamped the "To:" and "From:" in True Black. I added a bit of baker's twine and embellished the frosting with a Clear Spica glitter pen to finish them off. I can't wait to add these to a few special birthday packages!

My last project this month features Betsy's Inspired: Grace set.

Saved By Grace Card

I began by sponging and splattering Spring Rain ink onto a white card base. I attached a Garden Garland (my dies from last month finally arrived!) frame that I'd cut from Ocean Tides and sponged with the coordinating ink for a bit of depth. I die cut a second frame from bitty dot vellum and placed that, slightly askew, over the first frame.

Saved By Grace Close Up

Next, I die cut the banner shape using the new Paper Clippings: Birthday Details die and stamped it with the first part of my sentiment using Stormy Sea ink. I adhered that into place on the card front using foam tape. Then, I sponged a piece of Pale Peony cardstock with Berry Sorbet ink and die cut it with the Inspired: Grace die. I attached the die to the banner shape with foam tape and embellished the card front with sequins from last month's Sunshine & Rainbows kit.

Well, that's all for me this month, folks! I'll see you again soon. In the meantime, make sure to visit Amy, Ashley, Betsy, Danielle, DawnHeather, Kay, Laurie, and Melissa to see their projects featuring this month's new release. Enjoy the rest of your week, everybody!
