Papertrey Ink - January Release Countdown - Day 5

Good morning, friends! We've reached the end of the January Papertrey Ink Release Countdown and we're ending with two beautiful new floral sets, as well as a fun background text set. I love creating with flowers, LOOOOOOOVE, so I was super excited to get these in my hands and do a little colorful creating with them.


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



Up first is the new Circle of Love and Vintage Type background set. I started with a white card base and stamped the background along the right side. I used Pale Peony, Hibiscus and Raspberry Fizz to create my ombre look.


I then stamped the floral wreath in the center and filled in the flowers and leaves with their coordinating images. I finished it off with one of the sentiments and a few colorful sequins.

Together Forever is the featured set on card #2. I chose to keep my card clean and simple and *almost* one layer. I used the following colors to stamp all of the flowers … Bright Buttercup, Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet, Hawaiian shores and Green Parakeet. Best person ever … adore this sentiment. I stamped that on black, in Fresh Snow, and then popped it up with dimensional foam!

Such amazing new products this month, right? My goodness the designers did a fantastic job. Now it's time to start preparing your list … tomorrow night, January 15th, at 10pm EST is when everything will be available in the Papertrey Ink shop.

Thanks SO much for visiting with me over the past five days, and if you left a comment, thank you, thank you, thank you! I always appreciate you taking the time to do so!

Have a wonderful day!

Papertrey Ink - January Release Countdown - Day 4

Welcome back to Day 4 of this month's Papertrey Ink Release Countdown. Are you ready for a couple of projects featuring the cutest unicorn ever?! You are going to love, love, love Potbellies: Unicorn. We're also featuring Potbellies: Everyday Sentiments and Words to Live By: Smile today!

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


There are so many ways you could use the Potbellies: Unicorn die. Cards, tags, gift packaging and the list goes on. For both of my projects today, I created a card. 

Card #1 also features the Words to Live By: Smile Stamp Set and Die. I started by die-cutting my unicorn out of white cardstock and then used the following colors for the bits and pieces to embellish her … Hawaiian Shores, Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush, Green Parakeet and Pure Poppy.  


I just love all of the little pieces included with Potbellies: Unicorn. After I had all of her pieces in place I moved onto my sentiment. I die-cut her belly using the 'smile' die and then made a colorful inlaid using all of the colors I mentioned above. 


Card #2 was a mix of the unicorn with the new Potbellies: Everyday Sentiments Stamp Set. I used one of the sentiments, Happy Birthday, and stamped it four times around her belly. On the inside of her belly I added a heart from the From the Heart Die Collection. 


I gave her wings and added a flower to the heart to complete it.

That wraps up Day 4 for me. Just one more day of peeks to go before you can finalize your wish list and get ready to shop. Thanks so much for visiting with me! :)

See you tomorrow!

Papertrey Ink - January Release Countdown - Day 3

Happy weekend to you, friends! Are you ready for more Papertrey Ink goodness? Today we have so much to share with you, including all of the following new products …  Glorious Globes: January, Sentiment Staples: Just A Note and Bold Borders: Arabesque.

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


Up first I'm mixing Sentiment Staples: Just A Note with the beautiful new Bold Borders: Arabesque. I went with a green and blue color combo using Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Limeade Ice and Simply Chartreuse. I cut four strips of each color and attached them diagonally across the front of my card before placing the Bold Borders over the top. 


I added my sentiment by mixing the 'you' from Bold Borders with the rest of the sentiment from Sentiment Staples: Just A Note. A flower and leaves, from Botanical Bounty ll, complete it.


Glorious Globes: January is up next. I chose to use the 'love' circle in the set as the focus on my card. After stamping it in a variety of cheery colors, I added a few hearts around them, from Bold Borders: Love.

I used the Skinny Mini Banners and a bit of white twine to complete it!

Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing part of your Saturday with me, I appreciate you! For more inspiration today be sure to visit the Papertrey Ink blog!

Papertrey Ink - January Release Countdown - Day 2

Hey, everyone! Welcome back for Day 2 of the January Papertrey Ink Release Countdown. I'm thrilled that I get to showcase two new products for you today … Frame It Out: What's Inside? and the Nesting Basics: Oval Dies.

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


The new Frame It Out: What's Inside? is such a fun and sweet little set. It even has a coordinating die which makes creating with it even more fun and versatile. You can see the die in the photo above and that's what I used, along with the new Nesting Basics: Oval Dies, to create my first card. 

I started by die-cutting one of the larger ovals in the die collection. I then used a Nesting Basics: Pierced Oval Dies (introduced yesterday) to impress the inside.


Next, using the Frame It Out: What's Inside? Die, I die-cut the inside of the oval. I then created a colorful inlay by die-cutting that same image in a variety of colors. 


The sweet bear, from Bear Hugs, was placed in the center of the oval frame and he's holding one of the many sentiments included in the set.


I used the large oval pattern image on card #2. I stamped it once in Hawaiian Shores and then built my pattern out from there using the individual images. 


I mentioned there are a variety of cheerful sentiments included in the set. Here I used a few of them together to create my greeting!


To add a little 'extra' embellishment, I added a few white flowers, from Butterfly Blooms, and leaves from Botanical Bounty.


I went a bit retro on my last card for today. My background was created by die-cutting and layering the Nesting Basics: Oval and Nesting Basics: Pierced Oval Dies. After layering and attaching them all to my card front, I moved onto my sentiment.


I did a little mixing here … some old with the new. I used the Love Die and From the Heart Dies to create the 'LOVE' part of my sentiment and finished it off my adding the rest of my sentiment above and below that.


Well, friends, I hope you enjoyed what I created for today and hope I've inspired you a bit when it comes to creating with these wonderful new products. Head on over to the Papertrey Ink blog where there is so much more to see from the design team, as well as a few more goodies that are being introduced today.

Have a happy day!

Papertrey Ink - January Release Countdown - Day 1

Hey there, friends! I'm excited to kick off this month's Papertrey Ink Release Countdown. This month is filled with so many great new products and I can't wait to share what I've created with you. To kick off Day 1 I have a card created with the next addition to the Corner Adorner series, as well as the newest Shape Shifters Die. Let's jump right in!

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


To begin, I stamped the new Corner Adorner: January set on two of the corners of my white card base. The colors I used … Orange Zest, Hibiscus and Harvest Gold. Next, I die-cut the Shape Shifters: Square 4 Die out of Hibiscus. I die-cut the die two more times, one in Orange Zest and the other in Harvest Gold, to create the flower in the center of the Hibiscus square. 


I popped that up on the center of my card and then added the sentiment, also part of the Corner Adorner: January set. 

And that's it! Sweet and simple for me today, but there is still soooo much more to see from the rest of the team. Pop on over to the Papertrey Ink blog to see what they have to share with you!

Have a wonderful day and I'll see you right back here tomorrow!
