Good morning, friends, and welcome to my Release In Review post for this month's Papertrey Ink
countdown! I have a handful of additional projects to share with you, so let's get to them.
First up, I have a card featuring Maile's new Swan'sational
This set is so elegant. I used the Cover Plate: Waves die to create a little scene, trimming out a few of the waves to create more sky space. I sponged each wave with Spring Rain ink and used the extra waves to create additional texture. I sponged the background with Harvest Gold and Summer Sunrise to give a soft glow.
I die cut the swans, stamping only their details, and tucked them into the waves. Then I added the waterlilies for an extra pop of color.
Next up, I've paired Heather's new To Have & To Hold
set with Betsy's Inspired: Love
I sponged a Rustic White panel with Aqua Mist before I stamped the heart-shaped wreath in Prairie Grass, Spring Moss, and Olive Twist. I heat embossed the sentiment from Inspired: Love onto a Lilac Grace banner and stitched it to the wreath panel.
Then I embellished the wreath with an assortment of flowers and adhered that panel to a Classic Kraft card base that I'd stamped with Background Basics: Super Gingham. I added a "love" die cut that I'd softly blended with Pale Peony ink and coated with Pearl pigment powder for shine. It's just the right amount of shimmer.
Maile's new Splits: With Love
set is the star of this next card.
I heat embossed the floral blooms on a panel of watercolor paper and then added color with Harvest Gold, Pale Peony, Melon Berry, Berry Sorbet, and Aqua Mist inks. Once the background was dry, I stamped the leaves with Green Parakeet ink.
Then I die cut the smallest of the Tipped Tops shapes from additional watercolor paper and stamped the sentiment from the Splits set in Berry Sorbet ink. I love how all those colors are playing together!
And last but not least this month I have Nichole's new Stroke Speak
set paired with one of Betsy's Thick & Thin dies
I stamped the brushstroke sentiment in black ink onto a piece of Confetti Toss patterned paper. Then I trimmed the panel down about 1/4" to make room for the scalloped border. Next, I die cut the "thick" Celebrate word die twice (once from white cardstock that I'd run through a Xyron machine and once from Aqua Mist).
The Aqua Mist layer went back through the die cut machine with the "thin" Celebrate die and then I layered the two pieces. I sprinkled on glitter and it stuck to the exposed adhesive in the "thin" part of the word. I adhered the "Celebrate" to the patterned paper panel with foam tape and then adhered the panel to an Aqua Mist card base.
Thank you all so much for joining me this week. Make sure check in with Nichole
