Introducing Palm Prints

Good morning, friends, and welcome to Day 1 of the January Papertrey Ink countdown! I still can't believe it's January, but anyway...this month I have the pleasure of introducing my newest set, Palm Prints (just a reminder...all of the new products being introduced over the next several days will be available in the Papertrey Ink store on the 15th at 10pm ET). I've been looking forward to this set coming out since I designed it a year and a half ago. There are so many fun, and versatile ways to use tropical leaves! I can't wait to share this set!

Tropical Sending Hugs Card

I started today's card by sponging Aqua Mist both directly on a white card front and through one of the Modern Background Stencils. Then I masked off a circle in the center with a die cut post-it and stamped a variety of leaves around the edge. I used Mint Julep, Vintage Jadeite, Ocean Tides, and Pinefeather inks.

Once that was all nice and dry, I removed the mask and heat embossed the Big Hugs sentiment in the center of the masked circle. I used gold powder for a bit of sophisticated flair and for a nice contrast from the greens of the leaves. To finish up, I simply mounted the card front to a Mint Julep card base. I love a nice, easy-to-mail, flat card!

Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope you've enjoyed this first look at Palm Prints. Make sure to pop in with NicholeAshleyBetsyDawnMelissa, and Maile to see more of this month's release. Have a great day and I'll see you again tomorrow!
