Papertrey Ink - Cover Up: Grid + Summer Perks



Good morning! The Papertrey Ink team is back with more new product inspiration for this month's release! Today we are introducing the new Cover Up: Grid stamp set. I just love these Cover Up sets … they make creating your own backgrounds so quick and easy, but they also allow you to be extra creative and try different techniques, such as heat embossing and water-coloring!

Did you notice the Summer Perks image above? That's right, from now until Friday, June 22 at 11:59pm EST, you will receive 15% off select Cover Up stamp sets. The offer is not valid on the new Cover Up: Grid, but there are other fantastic sets to choose from. You can visit the Papertrey Ink blog for more details.



Now onto my card … I heat embossed and then used distress inks to make a colorful background for my sentiment to sit on. I used the new Love die and mixed it with Botanical Garden ll stamp set and die collection to create my sentiment. I added white glitter to the 'love', before attaching it to my card and popped up the flower with dimensional foam to create my 'o'.


Forever & Always, from With All My Heart, was stamped in black and popped up with a strip of dimensional foam. And to finish it, I added a few clear dew drops!

You will find so much more inspiration using this new Cover Up: Grid set by visiting the Papertrey Ink blog and the rest of the Papertrey ladies! You won't want to miss what they've created for you. 

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit with me. I hope your day is a happy one!

Papertrey Ink June Release Countdown - Day 4

Happy Wednesday, friends! We're back for another day filled with new Papertrey Ink goodness. We have a new Botanical Bounty set for you today, as well as a stamp set and die geared towards LOVE

**All of the new products will be available June 15th at 10pm EST!**



Up first is the beautiful new floral set, Botanical Bounty ll. And trust me when I say that this set is just as gorgeous as the first Botanical Bounty. I chose a fresh, clean color palette, using a mix of Simply Chartreuse, Green Parakeet an Ripe Avocado for my leaves, and Bright Buttercup, Lilac Grace and Orange Zest for my flowers. 

After stamping and die-cutting all of my leaves, I created a wreath for my flowers to sit on. Those were attached with dimensional foam. I also stamped and die-cut more leaves to tuck underneath my flowers.

My sentiment was stamped using the new How Are You Today? set (also available on the 15th).


I added a few clear sequins to finish it off and give it a little sparkle.


I LOVE love .. :) and this new stamp set and die make me so happy! I wanted to add lots of color to my card, so I die-cut 'Love' four times in the following colors … Hibiscus Burst, Berry Sorbet, Melon Berry and Pale Peony. After die-cutting, I cut each letter to separate them and then mixed the colors together to recreate my 'Love' die. I attached those to a white card base and then, using the new $5 With All My Heart sentiment set, I stamped one of the sentiments on a strip of white cardstock and attached it just below, with dimensional foam. 


My hearts were die-cut using the heart from the Baby Mine die collection. Along the bottom I added a strip of white cardstock and a strip of Bitty Big: Pale Peony. And lastly, a few clear sequins to complete it!

Thanks for visiting, friends! Enjoy your day and I'll see you again very soon!

Papertrey Ink June Release Countdown - Day 3


Hello, crafty friends! Today's Papertrey Ink Release Countdown post is all about laughter and flowers! Two of the best things, am I right? We are featuring Words to Live By: Laugh and How Are You Today? 

**All of the new products will be available June 15th at 10pm EST!**


I have mixed the two new sets together to create my card for today. I started by stamping one of the flowers, from the How Are You Today? stamp set, onto a piece of Harvest Gold cardstock to create my floral background. I attached that to my white card base. I then stamped and die-cut all of my flowers and leaves, again from How Are You Today?, and attached those to a rectangle I had die-cut using the Noted: Simply Stitched A2 Vertical Dies. You can find all of the colors I used in the supply list at the end of my post. 


I stamped part of my sentiment, from Words to Live By: Laugh, in black and then die-cut 'Laugh' out of Pure Poppy and attached it just above. Before attaching the rectangle to my card front I added a strip of Hawaiian Shores cardstock across the center of my card base. The rectangle was then popped up with dimensional foam and a few clear sequins were added to complete it. 

I adore these two sets and can't wait to create with them more! I hope you enjoyed.

Have a wonderful day!

Papertrey Ink June Release Countdown - Day 2

Welcome back for Day 2 of this month's Papertrey Ink Release Countdown. Today, we have more ocean love for you. There are three new products we are introducing … Text & Texture: Ocean, Reef Builder Dies and Shape Shifters: Oval 2. 

**All of the new products will be available June 15th at 10pm EST!**


I started by stamping the Text & Texture: Ocean background stamp on three different colors of card-stock … Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores and Tropical Teal. Next, I die-cut a piece of white cardstock using the Shape Shifters: Oval 2 die collection. I also used the same die to die-cut the three pieces of cardstock that I had stamped with the Text & Texture: Ocean background. I then filled in the spaces in the white oval with the pieces from the stamped ocean ones. 

After attaching the oval to my Aqua Mist card base, I stamped and die-cut the seahorse and fish from the new Salt Air: Fauna set that was introduced yesterday. I attached those to the center of my oval and then stamped a sentiment, from the Salt Air: Sentiments set, on a strip of white cardstock. I popped that up with dimensional foam and then attached a few dies, from the Reef Builder dies collection, on either side.


To finish it, I added a few clear dew drops!

So glad you stopped by today. There is still lots to see from the Papertrey gang … be sure to hop on over to the Papertrey Ink blog for more inspiration using these fabulous new sets!

Hello, friends! Welcome to Day 1 of the June Papertrey Ink Release Countdown. This month is jam packed full of so many wonderful new products … just wait til you see what we have in store for you! Up first for today are three new sets geared towards ocean life … 

* Salt Air: Flora

Here is a little something I created mixing all three of these new sets together. I started with a Sweet Blush card base and attached a white Shape Shifters: Oval 1 die cut. I then stamped and die-cut images from the Salt Air: Flora and Salt Air: Fauna sets and attached those to the die-cut oval. I just adore that sweet, sweet turtle! Isn't she the cutest?! I stamped one of the sentiments from Salt Air Sentiments just underneath, in black ink. 


I hope you are enjoying Day 1 of the countdown. For more information on these three new sets you can visit HERE
