Good morning and welcome back to the Release In Review for the Papertrey Ink
August countdown. It's been a super fun release with some wonderful new products and I have several projects to share to wrap things up for this month. Let's get to it!
First up, I have a card using both Betsy's Inspired: Blessed
and What The Doodle: Tea Time
I used two of the Noted dies to create the frame and then used an embossing sandwich to get the pretty scallops on the inner cut. I created a little table scene with a strip of Classic Kraft stamped with Background Basics: Woodgrain and a triangle of Lovely Laurels paper cut using another Noted die. I sponged a bit of Harvest Gold ink on the card base before stamping the steam (sponged rather than tapped on the ink pad to give it subtlety) and sentiment and adhering the frame.
The tea cup was stamped and die cut from white cardstock and colored very simply with Copics. I adhered it in the frame's opening with foam tape and embellished the tiny dots in the image with fine glitter.
Next is a Thanksgiving card made with Maile's newest Splits: Giving Thanks
I began by stamping the frame pieces separately and on an angle on a piece of Rustic White cardstock using Cocoa Bean ink. I randomly added in extra leaves and heat embossed those in gold. I also colored in the acorns with a Copic, being careful to avoid the lines so I wouldn't get smudges.
I adhered that front panel to a Simply Chartreuse card base and then heat embossed the sentiment onto a strip of Terra Cotta Tile cardstock. The sentiment strip was then mounted to the card front with foam tape. I really love the impact of the gold embossing on this simple design. It makes things just a teensy bit fancy.
On this next card I've paired Dawn's Give Thanks
sentiment with her Enclosed: Apple and Lexi's new Alphabet Soup
for a teacher appreciation card.
I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Pencil Me In patterned paper and punched a few "binder holes" before adhering it to a Classic Kraft card base. Next I stamped the Alphabet Soup background onto Berry Sorbet cardstock with Pure Poppy ink and die cut it with the Enclosed: Apple die. I sponged around the edges with additional Pure Poppy ink and embellished with a Classic Kraft stem and Green Parakeet patterned paper leaf.
I mounted that to the card front with foam tape and added a Wonderful Words: Teacher die cut that I'd stamped in Aqua Mist ink with the coordinating stamp set. Perfect for letting your favorite teachers know how much you appreciate their hard work on behalf of your kids.
Next I've used Kay's Spooky Smiles
set with the Text Block: Halloween die for a sweet Halloween card.
I began by stamping and die cutting the witch's hat from Kay's set before coloring it with Copic markers. I used a Wink Of Stella glitter pen to embellish the sash and set it aside for a moment. Then, I sponged a piece of Winter Wisteria cardstock with Amethyst Allure and Royal Velvet inks before die cutting with the Text Block: Halloween die.
I trimmed out the cobwebs from that die cut and layered the frame and the words onto a second shape, this one cut from vellum. I added a narrow Orange Zest mat and attached the hat with foam tape. That whole piece was adhered to a white card base that I had already stamped with the stars in Script Swirls: Birthday using Limeade Ice ink.
Up next is the second of Kay's sets for this month, Stylized Autumn
. Don't you just love Kay's designs?!
I began by stamping the leafy image onto a panel of Spring Moss cardstock using Ocean Tides and Pinefeather inks. I textured that with the Woodgrain Impression Plate and adhered it to a white card base. Next, I die cut the tag shape from white cardstock and sponged on a bit of Ocean Tides ink before stamping the sentiment in Dark Chocolate. I tied on a faux button (cut with the Buttoned Up #2 die) with Rustic Jute Button Twine and mounted the tag to the card front with foam tape.
I then stamped the fox onto white cardstock with Canyon Clay ink and added sponged Terra Cotta Tile to deepen the color. I die cut the fox and adhered it into place on the tag using foam tape.
Last but not least, I have a wedding tag created with Maile's Fancy Foliage
stamps and dies.
I began by sponging a piece of white cardstock with Aqua Mist ink. I die cut that with the Tag Sale #8 die and added texture by embossing with the Cover Plate: Quatrefoil die. I layered that piece with a frame cut using the same tag die and set it aside.
Then I heat embossed the sentiment onto a piece of vellum and die cut it with the coordinating die set. I adhered it to the tag with foam tape, hiding it behind the berries. I embellished with clear rhinestones and a Fancy Foliage Details shape cut from Silver Foil Adhesive paper that I'd attached to white cardstock. Simple and elegant.
