Papertrey Ink - August Release Countdown - Day 3

Hello, friends! So happy to have you here for Day 3 of the Papertrey Ink August Release Countdown. What do you think so far? Lots of amazing new product, right? I have truly enjoyed creating with each and every one of them. Today, I have two cards to share with you using the new Words to Live By: Gratitude, Text & Texture: Leaves, Seasonal Borders: Autumn and Shape Shifters: Circle 3 Die. 

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

The Text & Texture: Leaves background stamp set is so beautiful! I knew I wanted to make my card colorful and chose the following colors to work with … Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, Bright Buttercup, Aqua Mist, Tropical Teal, New Leaf and Simply Chartreuse. I cut multiple pieces of white cardstock and then using my Misti, stamped each one of them with the leaf portion of the background stamp. After they were all stamped, I attached them to my white card base in a quilt like pattern.

Gratitude is the best attitude … it sure it! This is one of the sentiments in the Words to Live By: Gratitude set. I die-cut two gratitude, one in black and one in white, and layered them together to create a shadow look. The rest of the sentiment was stamped in white onto a strip of black cardstock and then attached with dimensional foam.

The new Shape Shifters: Circle 3 was used on this next card. I die-cut that in white and then colored the inside in with Copic markers. I added Aqua Mist cardstock behind, so the colored images would POP. That was attached to my Kraft card base with dimensional foam. The sentiment is from the You Made My Day stamp set, also being released on the 15th.

And lastly, I added two stamped and die-cut leaves that are from the new Seasonal Borders: Autumn.

That completes Day 3 for me, friends. Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I created. I sure do appreciate it! You can find the full details on these new products RIGHT HERE. And the rest of the Papertrey ladies have lots to share too, so be sure to pop on over to the Papertrey Ink Blog for more paper-crafting eye candy.

See you tomorrow!
