Coming Soon: A New Gray Color At Papertrey Ink!

Good morning, friends! Today is a big day for Papertrey Ink. Today, we're announcing a new gray coming your way on April 15th! And we're even asking for your input! We're running a contest to help us name the new color! So many exclamation points!

Today the design team is sharing projects created with this great new color. See all of the color schemes and learn more about the contest over on the Team Blog. In the meantime, how about a closer look at my card?


I began by die cutting a Sentiment Splits: Curve Horizontal panel from white cardstock. Then I stamped and die cut a whole buncha flowers and leaves from the Floral Sketches set. I wanted to keep my flowers on the pastel end of the spectrum with the leaves and card base offering a nice contrast.


Next, I heat embossed my sentiment on the card base, using the Sentiment Splits panel as a guide. Once that had cooled, I used watermark ink to add the Super Gingham background to the base. The new gray ink won't be available for a couple of months so we're just getting the cardstock this month, but that's not going to stop me from using the heck out of it!


Then, I attached the Sentiment Splits panel to the card base with foam adhesive. I arranged the flowers and leaves on the panel with a mix of flat and foam adhesives to give some dimension. Good golly I love that gray!

I hope you're as excited as we are about this new color! And I hope that means you'll put on your thinking caps and submit your suggested name for our fabby new neutral. There's a $100 gift certificate up for grabs, after all! Have a wonderful Easter and I'll see you again soon!

A Lovely Hello Card

Lizzie, I LOVE how you've mixed up the colors in your flowers with non-traditional colors, or so it seems to my eye! (Now to remember to do that myself! LOL) Your card is SO EYE-CATCHING with the curved die & this new gray! ;) SUPER JOB for us! HAPPY EASTER!!!
